EDIT: IM NOT INTERESTED IN BUGS OR SUGGESTIONS, JUST ANSWER THE QUESTIONS IN THIS DESCRIPTION, AND DON'T PLAY BY YOURSELF.

Turns out I actually need feedback on this.
So grab a partner and test it out.
Player 1 uses mouse, Player 2 uses keyboard.

Notes:
Player 2 is always Lance.
Pretend that you can't use bombs. I'm not really sure how to implement them for 2 players.
There is no music, just add your own.
You can't play single player.
The game doesn't save.
The user interface edits were pretty crappily done.


I'm not really bothered about bugs, just fill in this questionnaire when you're done playing:

How difficult was it to find someone to play with?

Did that person have any previous experience playing Flash games, or shooting games specifically?
If not, did they show a bigger interest in the genre after playing with you? Are they likely to play the game on their own later?

If you play Flash games at work or school, would you feel comfortable asking another person to play with you there?
Would that be more likely to raise some concern from your employers or teachers, compared to playing a single player game?

Did the two different control schemes cause disagreement about who would use which?
Which one was more popular, keyboard or mouse?

Did the difference in skill levels between you and your partner cause any problems?

Did you cooperate strategically with the second player?
For example, having one player divert enemy fire?

Did you experience any other disadvantages due to playing with another person?

Do you feel the multiplayer feature would work better if it were online?
Or would that make it more difficult to communicate and cooperate?

Would you generally prefer playing with another person in this game, as opposed to playing by yourself?

Any other comments?

Yes, but my sis dislike bullet hell games.

N/A

Nope.

Would that be more likely to raise some concern from your employers or teachers, compared to playing a single player game?
Some just can't cooperate.

Did the two different control schemes cause disagreement about who would use which?
Nope, I got used to keyboard and my sis took the mouse.

Which one was more popular, keyboard or mouse?
Mouse, since it's easier to control.

Did the difference in skill levels between you and your partner cause any problems?
I had to bomb for my sis not to get hit >_>

Did you cooperate strategically with the second player?
Yes, I took the left screen and she took the right screen, which means the game is more like divided by 2.

For example, having one player divert enemy fire?
Answered above.

Did you experience any other disadvantages due to playing with another person?
Other than my sis have impatience, nope.

Do you feel the multiplayer feature would work better if it were online?
Nope.

Playing by self is usually better, unless you implement something like the game supports joystick

I'm not really bothered about bugs, just fill in this questionnaire when you're done playing:

How difficult was it to find someone to play with?
It wasn't that hard.

Did that person have any previous experience playing Flash games, or shooting games specifically?
He only has played Galaga as a shooter like this. He's played a lot of Flash Games, as well.

If not, did they show a bigger interest in the genre after playing with you? Are they likely to play the game on their own later?
I still want to answer this, but he really likes to play your games after I introduced all of them to him.

If you play Flash games at work or school, would you feel comfortable asking another person to play with you there?
Yeah, it's insanely fun.

Would that be more likely to raise some concern from your employers or teachers, compared to playing a single player game?
No, our teachers like us playing a game together.

Did the two different control schemes cause disagreement about who would use which?
No. I liked Lance, he likes Matt.

Which one was more popular, keyboard or mouse?
Keyboard.

Did the difference in skill levels between you and your partner cause any problems?
No. We played our fair-share of Arcade shooters.

Did you cooperate strategically with the second player?
Yeah. We played like tennis. Back-right, Front-left!

For example, having one player divert enemy fire?
No. well, except for him. He was in front.

Did you experience any other disadvantages due to playing with another person?
My laptop almost couldn't fit us both.

Do you feel the multiplayer feature would work better if it were online?
Either way! It's still fun!

Or would that make it more difficult to communicate and cooperate?
No. Almost anybody Has Skype.

Would you generally prefer playing with another person in this game, as opposed to playing by yourself?
Yeah. It would be fun to combine it with the Singleplayer.

Any other comments?

-As long as theres little to no lag

Would you generally prefer playing with another person in this game, as opposed to playing by yourself?

Was pretty fun controlling both players at the same time, Spent a 1 good hour on it and go to level 15 before i gave up, Ahwell, Would have been better if you could at least remap player 2's keys cause it was bothersome having to look down for a moment to press the 'x' key other than that, it worked fine.

How difficult was it to find someone to play with? - Sibling

Did that person have any previous experience playing Flash games, or shooting games specifically? - Yes and yes, but moreso the latter. Big shmup players.

If you play Flash games at work or school, would you feel comfortable asking another person to play with you there? - Yes, but only during a work break. Not during class.
Would that be more likely to raise some concern from your employers or teachers, compared to playing a single player game? - Only if I did it during class.

Did the two different control schemes cause disagreement about who would use which? - No, we've played Tyrian in the past and it has a similar option of keyboard and mouse.
Which one was more popular, keyboard or mouse? - I think the mouse works better in this particular game, but we tried switching it up now and then.

Did the difference in skill levels between you and your partner cause any problems? - Nope.

Did you cooperate strategically with the second player? - Yes, more in the sense of screen coverage than diversion.

Did you experience any other disadvantages due to playing with another person? - The fact that one dying means game over was the only disadvantage to note. So if one is having a poor performance, it could spell the end for both.

Do you feel the multiplayer feature would work better if it were online?
Or would that make it more difficult to communicate and cooperate? - No, exactly for that reason. Also, netplay may introduce lag or other connection issues, which you *really* don't want on a shmup.

Would you generally prefer playing with another person in this game, as opposed to playing by yourself? - Yes. I love co-op shmups and it's fun to have another in the roster.

1. Not very, just found a guy that played this before as well.
2. Yes, lots of experience with this game specifically.
3. Yes, I would feel comfortable asking another person to play with me, but not at work, as two people crowding a single monitor is a clear sign that work is not being done =p.
4. It worked out because I preferred the mouse while he preferred the keyboard.
5. We're both pretty good at this game, so we did really well (wave 58 in Survivor ^_^)
6. Very much so, he would stick in the back, shooting enemies while I stayed more upfront to get aggro on the spawns, so they fired towards the middle. Also, by staying upfront, I'd grab a shield and concentrate on bouncing back all the bullets while my friend slaughtered the lot and collected coins XD.
7. Once we had magnet leveled up, my character was getting all the powerups while my friend in the back wasn't getting as much.
8. I don't think I'd like to play this online, as there's always lag and, as you said, no way to communicate. Having a friend there makes the experience so much more rewarding as well.
9. I'd like to have the option between the two, even if the two had separate progression (Single player as one save file and two-player as another).

Having two-players definitely makes the game more fun, but I'd like to see some kind of difficulty curve when adding a second player, like enemies having more life or more enemies. I say this because it currently feels like "Wow, now there's two of me! Double the damage and only one upgrade tree, whoo!" However, this is still really really fun.

1.How difficult was it to find someone to play with?
I have a few gamer buddies, so it was easy.

2.Did that person have any previous experience playing Flash games, or shooting games specifically?
Yeah, of course. He said he loved this game, and that the art was really awesome.

3.If you play Flash games at work or school, would you feel comfortable asking another person to play with you there?
Why not? I have a lot things to do, but when I finish, I sit down call some of the staff to join me, if they want.

4.Did the two different control schemes cause disagreement about who would use which?
Which one was more popular, keyboard or mouse?
The mouse was the popular one. I wanted to be the cat , but he wanted to be the pirate (Is Matt his name?)

5.Did the difference in skill levels between you and your partner cause any problems?
Nope. Not at all.

6.Did you cooperate strategically with the second player?
For example, having one player divert enemy fire?
Of course! There is no good teams without that.

7.Did you experience any other disadvantages due to playing with another person?
No. It was all fine.

8.Do you feel the multiplayer feature would work better if it were online?
Or would that make it more difficult to communicate and cooperate?
Yes. I love that feature.

9.Would you generally prefer playing with another person in this game, as opposed to playing by yourself?
Playing with more people is always better :) Tanking bosses could be easy.

Any other comments?
The game was nice. There was some minor bugs, but that didn't matter. Bullet Heaven sure did get me hooked.

How difficult was it to find someone to play with?
- Not really difficult since my school is right across the road.

Did that person have any previous experience playing Flash games, or shooting games specifically?
- He played Bullet Heaven as well. So yeah.

If you play Flash games at work or school, would you feel comfortable asking another person to play with you there?
- Most definitely!

Would that be more likely to raise some concern from your employers or teachers, compared to playing a single player game?
- It wouldn't, if we played during our break (or not get caught... but that's obvious.)

Did the two different control schemes cause disagreement about who would use which?
- A SLIGHT disagreement but it was over with quickly. (The disagreement was primarily because of the characters assigned.)

Which one was more popular, keyboard or mouse?
- KEYBOARD. (Focus)

Did the difference in skill levels between you and your partner cause any problems?
- Not in the slightest.

Did you cooperate strategically with the second player?
- We did at first, but we quickly went back to "Shoot anything that moves every man for himself" priority. (It's more fun that way.) But, we did pick up shields and shield each other from enemy attacks. (However, for hearts, we forgot... especially when one of us had nigh full health and the other near death. *sweatdrop*

Did you experience any other disadvantages due to playing with another person?
- Nope. There were disadvantages?

Do you feel the multiplayer feature would work better if it were online? Or would that make it more difficult to communicate and cooperate?
- Generally, it would work better. But it really depends on a person's connection. (For example, mine randomly goes from good to crappy currently.) And bad connections piss EVERYONE off in the end.

Would you generally prefer playing with another person in this game, as opposed to playing by yourself?
- Yes I would, oh so very much! Single player for me is pretty much determination to win. But with a second player, it was less determination and more fun, so yeah.

Any other comments?
- I was bummed at the no focus for mouse. But meh. That's pretty much it.

1. I have a friend with whom I already play lots of multiplayers and we're both fans of your work - no difficulties here.

2. Yup. He sits on newgrounds night and day; plays Touhou and many others

3. I do not have time to play games in school :( Though, if I'd have to ask someone to play with me, it'd have to be a person I know a bit about (mainly if they like/are good this kind of games - otherwise I wouldn't ask)
3b. Eh, I think teachers wouldn't mind as long as we'd stay quiet (on unobligatory lectures) and did our assigned work (obligatory ones)

4. I was sitting closer to the mouse and he was closer to the keyboard, so that just kinda chose itself. If there'd be a disagreement, we'd just throw a coin.
4b. Both had their pros and cons... Mouse being more precise in movement, but keyboard having more comfortable shooting buttons.

5. No, we were quite on the similair level.

6. Yes.
6b. Grabbing a shield and staying in front of enemy fire, protecting your ally; leaving a heart for the wounded one; if ally was near-dead staying up close to an enemy, so the bullets will chase you; playing 'first get, first serve' to get attack buff.

7. Yes... as soon as one of us died we stopped playing, coz that was the condition for playing... 'We stop as soon as we get a game-over'

8. I have no idea.
8b. The only thing we ever said was just laughing, sighing, and shouting "USE THE DAMN BOMB!" D:

9. Playing with someone is more fun. We're sharing the laughs more than sharing the sighs, lol

nope, own style different time.

OK, I got my sister to help testing out.

1: ... rather difficult since my friends are busy or we meet were there are no PCs with internet (like college) but I'm a special "forever alone" case :XD:

2: I play shooters once in a while, but my sister doesn't play shooters since years ago (and it was about NES games only, like Twin Bee or Xevious)
3: She said "Maybe. It sorta reminds me of that bees game" (yep Twin Bee...)

4: When I was in highschool and in some pc lab class, we usually stopped doing our classwork and started playing with some emulators (NeoRageX, Project64, etc) or Counter Strike (and even my copy of DMC3SE :XD:) So, I wouldn't mind, really =)
5: Maybe at work? I don't think they'd mind that much if there's no more work to be done at the moment (... as long as I don't make a riot =D)

6: Not in my case. I just told her "you use the mouse and I take the keyboard and then switch"
7: Not a big difference since I never play using the mouse (unless it's necesary) =P ... although I can't say if the fact that only player 1 has bombs and player 2 focus is a good or a bad thing... :hmm: (Might be better to make it so player 2 can choose between focus or bomb, since "Mouse player" can't use focus altogether)

8: Besides she losing all her lives almost right away and me not, not really

9: Didn't really try to co-op, just tryed testing out the 2-players mode ^^;

10: Maybe, I think it lagged a bit :hmm: ... then again this PC has been REALLY laggy lately, working non-stop and all ^^;

11: Perhaps. It could help a lot since some friends are online friends (like me and persons from Canada, England, etc) so we couldn't play together otherwise =)
And maybe setting some quick messages like "help me!", "watch out!" or "go the other way!" to some other buttons to tell your partner what you want to do would help with that =)

12: I usually prefer playing with another person, either as co-op or competition. I think it's better that way =) (although I don't mind playing alone either)

Hope that helps =)

How difficult was it to find someone to play with?
Easy, used my bf.

Did that person have any previous experience playing Flash games, or shooting games specifically?
If not, did they show a bigger interest in the genre after playing with you? Are they likely to play the game on their own later?
Yes and yes. More Experience than me for sure. No bigger interest, but would play the game on his own. (Without the useless me ^^")

If you play Flash games at work or school, would you feel comfortable asking another person to play with you there?
Would that be more likely to raise some concern from your employers or teachers, compared to playing a single player game?
No playing for fun in the university or at work is my rule.

Did the two different control schemes cause disagreement about who would use which?
Which one was more popular, keyboard or mouse?
No disagreement. I'm used to the mouse, he was fine with keyboard and took care of the bombs.

Did the difference in skill levels between you and your partner cause any problems?
No problems, but we only played a little bit for fun. Aiming for a highscore he wouldn't play with me.

Did you cooperate strategically with the second player?
For example, having one player divert enemy fire?
Ahem... no. I had often problems to even recognize all the sorts of enemy fire.

Did you experience any other disadvantages due to playing with another person?
Collecting the right things. Had full health and still collected the hearts although the other player would have needed them more.

Do you feel the multiplayer feature would work better if it were online?
Only if you know the other person. Else there is a lot of potential for frustration. Especially if there is a difference in abilities.
Or would that make it more difficult to communicate and cooperate?
I think so.

Would you generally prefer playing with another person in this game, as opposed to playing by yourself?
I usually don't play the myself cause I'm bad at them. I like watching other players, so I would generally prefer my bf playing the game by himself.

Any other comments?
Looks funny but is deadly and sometimes confusing. A softer start would have been nice. Played the first level twice just to learn what is going on.

How difficult was it to find someone to play with?
Difficult for sustained periods of time.

Did that person have any previous experience playing Flash games, or shooting games specifically?
Yes person had experience of Flash games, and flash shooting games.

If you play Flash games at work or school, would you feel comfortable asking another person to play with you there?
Would only feel comfortable if it was during break or lunch times otherwise would cause a disturbance, but even during free time it is easier to play games by yourself rather than 2 player.

Would that be more likely to raise some concern from your employers or teachers, compared to playing a single player game?
Yes, although single player still cause a disturbance but not as much as a 2 player.

Did the two different control schemes cause disagreement about who would use which?
A little bit, but the schemes where decided by controls easiest to reach rather than which we preferred.

Which one was more popular, keyboard or mouse?
Neither preference; possibly slight slant to keyboard.

Did the difference in skill levels between you and your partner cause any problems?
Only played for a little bit, so might have been more obvious if played for longer, but no obvious problems.

Did you cooperate strategically with the second player?
No
For example, having one player divert enemy fire?
Could you do that?!

Did you experience any other disadvantages due to playing with another person?
Couldn't play for very long due to other person not really interested. Confusing as to which player was playing which character, and general controls and weapons ect.

Do you feel the multiplayer feature would work better if it were online?
Or would that make it more difficult to communicate and cooperate?

I could imagine very frustrating lag times on slower computers. Would probably be better if there were people online to play with as controls would be easier and could concentrate on playing the game.

Would you generally prefer playing with another person in this game, as opposed to playing by yourself?
I would prefer the choice to do both, to play by myself until someone was able to play with me.

Any other comments?
Too many different types of weapons and controls for a multiplier game as there is normally not much space in front of one screen and you wont be playing the game for sustained periods of time, so the controls are difficult to learn and pick up quickly if unfamiliar with the game.

But fun, non the less!

The game was kind of slow so I could only play a few levels before my brother got bored.

How difficult was it to find someone to play with?
Little, I have a brother.

Did that person have any previous experience playing Flash games, or shooting games specifically?
Yes, we're both costumed to most types of games.


If you play Flash games at work or school, would you feel comfortable asking another person to play with you there?
If I know him, probably.

Would that be more likely to raise some concern from your employers or teachers, compared to playing a single player game?
Not really, in my school people always group around computers in group of 2 or 3.


Did the two different control schemes cause disagreement about who would use which?
Not much, it was just like "I'm player one, I play like this, you're player 2 you play like that" not big arguments.

Which one was more popular, keyboard or mouse?
Mouse, Its easier to see the hitbox pixel.

Did the difference in skill levels between you and your partner cause any problems?
Only when he died to soon.

Did you cooperate strategically with the second player?
More or less. We divided the screen in two and fired has much has we could.

For example, having one player divert enemy fire?
Only if I had the shield or my brother had only 1 life.

Did you experience any other disadvantages due to playing with another person?


Do you feel the multiplayer feature would work better if it were online?
Leaving the two options would be better, but if I had to choose, I would go with the co-op in the same computer.

Or would that make it more difficult to communicate and cooperate?
The other could disconnect without warning, plus with a fast game like this it would need an efficient way to communicate.

Would you generally prefer playing with another person in this game, as opposed to playing by yourself?
It was a little slow, because my PC suckes, but I believe that playing with someone else would be cooler, because of the competition factor. See who dies first.

Any other comments?
Making the option of turning Player 2 on or off so if I beat the game alone I can ask my friend/brother to go one a "Who can last the longest on survival" game.

I little bro finally agreed to play with me
- It would of been easier if I had my computer class this week
-yea I feel comfortable asking a friend in class to play this with me
-I had to use the mouse even though its not my control of choice, but it was my little bro's first time playing BH
-not really
- yea we had a bit of strategies during bosses
-not really
-I think for a game like this that local multi-player would be better
-In my opinion I rather play by myself, but it was fun to play with another person

one more thing, If your planing to make this a full game have it so P1 can have computer keys too

Would love online for this, not many people to play with by yourself right afterschool.

Fun and challenging
-I played with my brother
-We have a lot of experience with shooters
-He likes this EBF the best
-I can't access this EBF at school on a site that isn't blocked and where there's no bugs
-I don't play with teachers around
-I used the mouse since I already beat the single player version (Better with keyboard though)
-My brother often died first
-No strategy, just dodge bullets and nab items
-Only disadvantage is if the other player dies
-Online or not, it doesn't matter
-I find just as much entertainment playing by myself than with another player

I did try controlling both players by myself and I got up to the third boss. So even without someone else to play with, this is still really fun.

You can't use the right click mouse in flash games, if it is assigned for using secondaries. Just pops up a bar.

well since there's already difference in control schemes and who's closer to the bombs, why don't you add a couple "classes" with bonuses and weaknesses for upgrade levels, chance to activate powerups under certain conditions etc and have the players each pick up a different one, aside from distinct caracters?
