My computer GamesHey all

I've written 2 computer games so far and am currently working on a third. I do it mainly because I enjoy it, but also so that I can become better. I would love someday to win some sort of indie game programming award. If you're browsing through here, please check them out. Give me any feedback you can: about web design, graphics, bugs, gameplay etc, I just want to learn to do my best. I will accept random friend requests as long as they comment on my games

the gateway to both games:
http://pyrogame.com/index.htm


The first game is Pyro: the little pyromaniac who could. It is about a strange boy who, for no reason, gets teleported to a land of tiny wizards. While there he finds out about their cruel dictator, the professor, who has recently stolen some of their sacred treasures. Pyro (as the boy became known) must use his power of fire to burn through 19 levels (hehe, funny pun).

The gameplay is similar to Commander Keen. With the graphics I was going for a 'retroey' commander keen effect as well. As for the Pyro powers: you start off with just the fireball. Later you will get Fire breathing (a short ranged but powerful burst of fire), a huge fireball (Which rips through enemies and keeps on going), and rocket feet (which blast you upwards). And by the way, all Pyro's enemies are mutated cows or robots. All in all, the game is good fun:

The other game is called Maverick. It is about spaceship pilots who have slowly lost their sanity and live now only to die in fast-paced tournaments. They cluster in small communities away from law-abiding eyes, and have attracted quite a support network of engineers, gamblers and fans. It has become one of the chief revenue sources of organised crime. The levels take you firstly through a tournament, then go to a defence against a policing force, and finally a retaliation against the police base of operations.

The original idea was to make it like 2-player asteroids. You can upgrade your ship in many ways, armour, weapon power, shielding, as well as 8 unique weapons. These include: the Death ray (similar to the death star's super gun), EMP bomb, mines, plasma bolt, and more. The game includes a musical score, as well as same computer multiplayer support.

Wrench, the engineer is the guy to talk to when you're looking for upgrades.

Feedback is eagerly awaited.
