Credits must always be as long as possible, to impress people.

Okay, here it is, Alpha demo 2 (October demo). Note that it hasn't gone through the final tests yet, but it should be bugfree. :) I just spent the last ten minutes throwing in and testing a time counter on the Sector Clear screen. :p

Iji alpha demo 2

Iji music (place the songs in the same directory as the game)

The music isn't necessary to run the demo, but adds a ton of feeling to the menu and Sector 1, thanks to MDX and friends. Seriously, the music rules, go get it. :) Sector 2 has a placeholder song though, the good old Officially Destroyed, but MDX will send me an updated soundtrack for this demo later. :)

Again, I don't think the first two Sectors are nything like the later ones (which have more action, better weapons and enemies), and you only get a glimpse of the story, but I hope you'll like it. See if you can find everything in this demo... it's bursting with secrets. :)

Don't be shy on the feedback. Is Iji easier to control since the first demo? Is there too much text in the tutorial (first part of Sector 1)? Does the game make sense at all?

Big yellow thing, wth?! Brilliant game. Could do with a run key though.  Iji is easier to move around, nice work. Great PMS style moment as well

What, you found the Tasen Elite already? Bring a Buster gun and alot of health. ;)

Well, she runs notably faster than in the previous demo. Running even faster isn't really necessary, and imbalances her to faster enemies (the only enemy that is faster than the others in this demo is the Tasen Elite).

Yeah, maybe running around everywhere after picking up the jump power up (jump boots, I loled) was probably a bad idea. Level 9 was probably WAY too weak. Will play it for stupid amount of time on wednesday, tommorow I have to help out the drama dept. for an open evening.

Sweet.

I've yet to play on extreme, though. That was the difficulty you designed just for me, after I complained about how easy games were today, right?

Yeah, but it'll be more evident the later into the game you get - on Normal, the max level at the end of the game is 50, while on Extreme it's only 30. Add in Security boxes that sometimes explode when you fail to crack them, enemies that dodge projectiles/kicks more often, bosses with more health that use "super-moves" which are sometimes unstoppable (but avoidable), and a shorter cracking time. And with such a low max level, you have to prioritize your stats much better, and you'll weild fewer weapons.

Killed the Elite easily without the use of a buster gun. In fact, I was somehow hindered from going back and upgrading my weapon (The path had been blocked by a large piece of wall), so I had to kill him without it. I have to admit, it wasn't on the hardest difficulty.

And me, who'd upgraded my hack to 5 to see how the shotgun/blast-thing-gun worked.

Yeah, I should perhaps have priotiserd stats better. 3 in health, 3 in cracking, 2 in str and 3 in Tasen isn't really enough.
