I love these games.
They remind me a lot of those money games where you upgrade stuff and get more money then the upgrades cost more.. keeping a person in the loop by making them feel a constant sense of achievement.

There's a lot of these on kongregate, I really do enjoy them but some are really buggy .-.

Achievements are great fun too, reach for the sky ! crash into an alien ship! flew into a portal(maybe 1000m extra boost) (extremely rare achievement as portal spawn chance 1/10000 or so xD

by the looks of it you're pretty good with sketches, it would actually be fun to jam a game that has the art style you drew there (the concept art) makes it feel like im jamming a paper game!


Love those kinds of games. I've always wanted to make my own catapult game since then. It's sad that I only knew how to make game recently.

I made my first game as part of my learning curve. Now I want my second project to be special. Brings me back to y8 and Newgrounds days.
