My latest game that's actually FINISHED! I don't know how much it'll appeal to the people on this site, but I'm submitting it anyway...

Raider: Episode 1 is the first of five parts of a story involving a Cyrian called Arkus Zei, a space pirate, who makes a living by 'raiding' the wrecks of dead spaceships for loot. Sometimes this ends up getting him into more than he expected...

It's an action platformer that's meant to be reminiscent of 'old-school' games.
IT IS DESIGNED TO BE CHALLENGING.
I get the feeling that many people will find it 'too hard', but if you don't play platformers regularly, then PLEASE play on Beginner mode. If you find even that too hard, I am sorry, but this game wasn't designed for casual players in the first place.

The controls are in-game, and can also be customised from the How to Play screen.

Hopefully at least someone here will find some enjoyment from this...

It took about three months to make, and everything in it is mine. Graphics, code, concept, etc.
Notably, I composed the music (as I do, being a composer), and I am particularly proud of it!
I also made the sound effects myself this time, so there is literally nothing in the game that I didn't make myself. Huzzah!

Also, since sometimes I get asked this for some reason: I made it in Flash. Flash games are made in Flash. That's why they're called Flash games. o_O

This game is also nicely sponsored by Kongregate.


If you find any bugs or have suggestions for things that could be changed to make the game more enjoyable (that is, small tweaks, not a change of concept), I'd be glad to hear them because I want to make the following chapters as enjoyable as they can be.

It's real funny that Arkus Zel needs oxygen in this episode but he didn't need it in Raider Zero.

Personally, I don't find it too hard. It gave me a nice challenge, and was pretty much a nostalgia trip for me. I grew up with platformers, myself.
I'd really like to see more from you sometime, if you're still around. ^^
