I have now FINALLY released Raider 2!

I'll upload it to Fig Hunter later, but for now, you can play it at Kongregate, here: [LINK!]

If you find faults with it, then please suggest SOLUTIONS or something. I can't stand people just being dismissive due to some perceived minor flaw and rating it down for that without even explaining their reasoning. It's basically like spitting in my face after all the time and effort I put into things like this.

I have two things to say about R2 (yeah... i know i don't post often.... but unless i have something really useful/important to say, i just don't) :

1) A lot of people complain and give idiotic ratings due controls. I never had any trouble to get used to any combination of controls.... and its not like you are saying "Q" to jump, "A" to go left, "R" to go right, "H" to go down, "P" to go up, "5" to pause, "0" to use blaster.... or anything like that.... i mean, its not crazy :P. But well, you should consider the possibility of making it customizable... just to avoid the hits of that kind of .... *folks* (thinking... morons maybe?)

2) Some people also dislike "exact" jump performance. What i mean is that if you need to jump in a very exact place to be able to reach your destination without falling.... it makes it annoying for average players, utterly annoying i might add. For people like myself, the "powergamers" its not a problem. But there are not many powergamers in places like kongregate.... furthermore, there are a lot of assholes :P

good luck Pseudo

Controls ARE customisable... I am wondering why so many people don't realise this. Maybe calling the section that contains it 'Game Info' isn't clear enough because the same people who complain are the same ones who don't read? Hmm...

The entire *genre* of Raider is basically 'precision platformer', so I'd basically have to make it a different game to remove that aspect... It's just annoying how people, rather than rating games for what they ARE, rate them instead for what they're NOT, and expect them to be more like other games of different genres... Or something.
But yes, I see that the audience isn't the best for this sort of game... But oh well. At least they're not COMPLETE failures!

Dont worry... and neither of your games... nor R1 nor R2 are failures... not at all, they are both great flash games. Its a damn shame that Kong is so full of idiots.... but well, nothing you can do there. Just keep up you good work! And when one of the biggies gets released.... the success will be major, i would just simply find and destroy anyone who doesnt appreciate games like mardek.... i mean, thats as good as a flash game can get! So keep hopes up and try to focus into making the great work we all know you do.
As far as the controls, i apologize... i never realized you were able to customize them now... it seems i missed that due that i dont mind the controls :P. As for the 'precision platformer", im not saying you should remove that... but maybe making less "precise" jumps... maybe making monsters harder (they pose no threat really now :P)

Suggestions!

1. Once all the chapters are made, make a "super" chapter containing all 5 of them that plays as one game.
2. A really easy difficulty:
a. Instead of check points if you die you return to the start of the room.
b. You can double jump!
c. lava takes 2 HP and resets you to the last solid ground.
d. Enemies don't "smash" you downwards.
e. Have 10HP
3. If you get a B or higher you get to see a screenshot of the next chapter.
4. Kongregators have a longer ending dialog.
5. Ranks are displayed on your FH profile.

I'd like to point out that a Raider: Episode 2 review is on the Jayisgames website, now, so hopefully that website's users are more of the target audience of the game. And hopefully, that will increase the rating on Kongregate.

Hmm perhaps next time you can have a "kiddie" level for those who think beginner was waaaay too hard and have to make them rate 1 >>, (basically they have 10 health and unlimited lives, more checkpoints, and lava takes only 1/2 of max health).

Yes! Perhaps even playing in water or something. It'll be so easy that people would complain on how EASY it is. That would be ironic.

Well Psuedo I know you don't really like modern phrases but: DUDE THIS GAME SUPER HARD. And that's why I love it. I read what you wrote on the Raider page and that's exactly what happened with me. I couldn't beat Raider 1 for months(I'm much more skilled in everything else, and an expert on RPG's and Strategy games, but I suck at platformers), but it had an irresistible pull that had me playing it even in school because I just had to beat it. I finally did yesterday and not a moment too soon. Now I'm plaing this and it's super hard, as I mentioned, but it has an even more irresistible pull to it. I hope you continue to make more quality games, and don't listen to the morons who love easy games and so have no patience for yours. By the way, has the Mardek saving glitch been fixed yet? Because I want to play it again before you release the third but I tried to save and it didn't work. As soon as I got out of the page, it refused to load. Anyone have any help?

Yes, the save problem IS fixed, but you need to update to the very latest version of Flash Player. I made a post about it; have a look on the main page, the column on the right showing all news articles; it's called 'Save bug fixed?' or something.

Hi, I actually loved the fisrt part of this game and even finished it in hard mode, but this second part have been a little boring to me. So I have been thinking about the reasons and these are, at least in my opinion, some important points which this game is lacking:

- Challenging enemies or one or two minibosses, that would be fantastic. Something which takes you away from only platforms...
- More variety of challenges, because I've found always myself doing the same: jumping, spikes, platform, jumping, spikes... one time and another. As Raider 1, which I liked, but now its the same with just a new trap. And even more difficult and frustrating. So, maybe parts where you swim or dive, more traps, the tipical elevator where enemies come and you have to dodge errr... spikes, or some lasers which put out and on. There are tones of posibilities which would help having a really better and fun experience.

When I tell you this I'm thinking a lot in the megaman series and those facts which made them so entertaining. The music and the grafics are really nice, as in the first part.

Oh, and the difficulty... even in beginner mode is really, really challenging, so most people will take a moment playing it, get frustrated and simply stop playing having a bad opinion. So maybe a truly easy mode with only the easiest areas will make the ocasional player like it. It's important thinking of all the people who just want a quick game to have a good time, which I supose are a lot of flash gamers. Oh, with hardcore players like us, no problem :P

And don't get so angry with bad feedback (or the total ausence of it) because people is usually like that: take good opinions to consider and the others ones don't take them so personally because then the problem is only yours. If someone spits you, if you dont care, then whats the problem? The only problem is how it affects you, but is like wind, you know.

Best of luck.

Sorry about being this late to reply....

Thing is, it doesn't matter whether or not you win the contest, it's just that the contest rankings are the only real way to sort through the sea of crap that you would normally have to slog through if you decided to tackle the list of new games without some sort of filter. Without it, you either have to use the most popular list, which doesn't list anything NEW for 20 pages, or rely on others to point you towards good games, which you can't do most of the time.

Therefore the only games that DO get badges and then can leap onto the veteran games chart without waiting for large amounts of weeks (or on hopes that could randomly be good or bad) are the ones who manage to stay within sight on the rankings.

Unless you bribe Kong like Scion does.

you may have forgotten to re-use the checkpoint after getting back to the main room of that section.
