Review :arrow_down:

Objective description:

Skybound Endless is an endless runner game that amuses the concept of shooting down oncoming waves of aircraft approaching. The player, also named “Falcon Alpha” flying a red airplane has 10 lives, depleted when colliding with other airplanes.

Personal opinion:

The game is an interesting idea that could be expanded so much further and I belive it has so much potential to be made more interesting by implementing little quality of life improvements and small features.

Suggested improvements (for the author)

The game is kind of clunky because the controls are not exactly intuitive, such as the fact that you shoot out 5 shots with one press of the a button, quickly reaching the overheat limit, thus leaving the player defenseless. This makes the game unecessarily hard and bothering to play. It would also make the game better by adding a penalty life loss when the enemy planes hit the left side of the screen and adding some kind of end goal, such as increasing score for every destroyed plane and making the speed increase gradually. It can also be annoying that the planes crashing into you take more than one life off due to a counting error. I belive fixing these flaws would transform the game into something really enjoyable to everyone, but I leave that to you.

(numeric score has been removed due to “violating MakeCode guidelines” (apparently))
