New music should be done soon hopefully, and I am going to make more sound effects today, I am hoping to open it up to sponsors around the second, so any feedback on the new version would be greatly appreciated!

hey, quick question
how do you have your bars (for exp, etc) to have 2 colours? what i mean is, i only know how to fill a bar with 1 colour, yet you are able to have two (the exp bar is both bright green and dark green)

You just draw two rectangles of different colors, just have the lower one begin where the top one ends.

The game is being approved for bidding now. I would still appreciate feedback though! For those who can't play the game, I made a small gameplay clip to show sponsors one of the later areas, it has no in-game audio but I looped the music over it, but the boss music does not play in the clip. YOu can watch it here:

Really nice and I commented on it on the FGL forums. Personally I think this is quite the achievement in ANY engine. You should be really proud of what you have going.

Overall - a you might have something really special with the game and you certainly have a bright future as a game maker. Keep at it!

Best,

Thanks! I am glad you like it! I have felt that it could have been done much better, and have lost a bit of confidence in it, simply because I know that there is a lot that could have changed to make it much better, however I eventually just wanted to get it finished because at that point many of the problems were better off being fixed in a sequel instead of spending more time on this one. So seeing that you are confident in the game is nice and I have recieved my first bid as well!

However I do have a small problem I would appreciate some help with, I will just copy and paste it from my post on FGL.

Quote
Although I would like to ask everyone if they are having trouble loading it, I went to pull up the game and on the first scene after loading was finished (the movement type select screen) it just stopped executing code. The loading bar did not slide off the screen and the movement buttons did not slide onscreen. I then refreshed and this time the movement buttons slid onscreen but the loading bar did not slide offscreen. I remember that once happened before, before I made the buttons slide on screen, except in that case I could not press the buttons. However I can reload the game again and it works perfectly.

I would like to know if this has happened to anyone else or if it is just a problem with my flashplayer (which has given me problems in the past).

I didn't see that on your game or any of my games on FGL. I created some custom graphics for my loading bar in Stencyl too.

I wonder if it could be something to do with the way you coded your scene. It's a long, ,long shot but i did have some issues on Boss 101 with the way things were loaded up. Sometimes there were no problems but other times a butterfly would fart in Japan and Stencyl wouldn't load. HAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!

Well I decided to remove some of the tweens from my first scene, so it may not be as flashy, but I haven't had any problems with it yet!

I have now updated the graphics of the game including a new menu.

In interest of getting new sponsor views as it has still not been sold yet, I decided too make some changes and place it in Quick Auction on FGL. I have just enabled Quick Auction,  and am hoping for some good bids!

Any feedback on the game or thumbnail and "Short Description" are appreciated!

I have finally been able to release  my game "Hidden Valley Ninja" after searching for a sponsorship for 5 months! Needless to say I am glad to finally have this out of the way so I can focus on future projects!

I am rather happy with how it turned out, but it could have been done much better and could have been much more polished. For these reasons it did not sell very well and would be considered a failure when considering profit vs time spent, but either way it is a learning experience and I enjoyed it!

My next game will be considerably smaller, since this game was not a great choice as my first game anyways.

It was an amazing project for your first game, Its a great game, the controls are very tight and the art is excellent.

Thank you!

So far it seems to be going well on Newgounds, with the daily pick and also being retweeted by Newgrounds! I am having a problem with one of the medals though. The code is the same as the other medals and there are no typos so I don't know how to fix it.

I suppose it is too early to say how it is doing on Kongregate, the rating is 3.5 right now, although that puts it as 2nd place for the week and 4th place for the month.

Thank you!

I wanted to ask if anyone might have an idea as to why my game crashes for some people when they try to save the game. None of my game attributes store "Invalid" information so I don't know what the problem could be. Is it possible that it is related to this game being done in 2.2?
