Just wanna say the game is definiely one of the best FPSs available on XBLA. And 800pts is a great bargain.
Now the game did have some flaws & lacked in certain areas. I will post suggestions if you all are thinking about making a sequel.
Sticking with the multiplayer theme
1.weapons - Assault Rifle, Laser/Engergy gun, Sniper Rifle, Shotgun, Rocket Launcher, Multple Handguns, flamethrower, Mines, hand grenades, & Melee option for guns.
Also each weapon should have stats like range,damage,recoil & reload speed. Thought it was ridiclous how guns could kill from far range & recoil wasnt really a factor.
2. Fire from hip or Down Sights - Option to fire down sights for every gun should be a option. There should be a risk & reward. Firing from hip should mean quick fire. While firing down sights should mean more accurate shot.
3. Armor Customization - Seleceting certain pieces of armor should affect damage & mobility. If you have heavy armor you get good protection but will move slower than someone with light armor pieces.
4. Bots - 12 bots available is a good number. Bots should have settings.
My suggestions for bot settings are 1 main difficulty & a characteristic for each bot followed by a style of play.
Long Range(Bot uses Sniper rifles)
Close Combat (Bot preferes close combat)
Mid Range (Bot uses Assault Rifles & Engergy gun)
Explosive (Bot specializes in use of grenades, mines, rocketlauncher)
The bots are a great feature to have in FPS games. Especially since games dont last long online. So going back to offline & still being able to play competitively is huge. Most people dont buy XBLA games because the online dies & theres nothing to go back to. So bots are everything.
5. Maps - 7 Maps with 2 exclusive maps for CTF. The Maps should range from Large scale to small.
6. Health Regeneration - Health packs arent the way to go. Health regeneration would be the only solution to keep the game fast & fun.
7. Perks - I have a few suggestions for weapon & character perks
- Damage, Recoil, reload speed, firespeed, alternate fire,& range
- Speed, stronger defense shield, Cloak,less energy drain, Throwing range, Throwing power
8. Attaachemt options:
- Multple scopes 8x 16x
- Reflex scope
- Larger ammunition clip
- Red Dot Laser
Single Player Mode - Have a short campaign with all three classes playable. Four 15 minute miissions with cutscenes would be good.
Possible story/plot - Set in the year 4124. You are a robot & must break out of this facility where the humans are going to destroy all robots because of fear of them taking over.
So you must lead a army of your fellow robots out of this large facility & to freedom far away.
