The frame rate is as low as its going to get without making the game rubbish and its much lower than Halo - The Generator.

A method of further decreasing the lag is to first move the camera far downwards and away from the main scene before playing, this makes it easier for Alice to render both the playing window and the preview box.

Arty to the rescue. If you have questions about optimization and frame rate, please talk to Arty because he is head of that division in game development. Btw, Arty, can you review this game now?

I would rather not, since I helped make it, my opinion would be unfair and biased.

Um, I think you still can, because I was actually hoping for a review from you. Becuase you said a while back and stuff. But if you helped on it, you can still review.

Its just from the point of view of everybody else I could say the AI wasn't too awesome and the game was kind-of short and there was still some lag; but from my perspective I know how hard it was to improve the AI, how the game couldn't be extended or it would just lag too much and crash and how much effort was put into eradicating lag. I could also say lots of good things, but that would convey a sense of me being big-headed.

Therefore I will leave it at that and let it stand that I think this is a great game, it certainly took a great lot of effort, mostly from you to get it ready to play - in the state it is in now.

So it has to be "seeing" nothing in its range of view, then looks at it?

Yes, I think you've understood what I was meaning.

What? What in the world? The game is not in early alpha? Lol, apparently, you don't know how to play the game. The Sprint does stop, just let go. If it doesn't work, thats your normal walk speed. The AI now dodges bullets, and if you read the controls, you would know that the right "Ctrl" button releases the mouse....I gotta make the text bigger, because no one reads controls. Thats not a righteous review. Not even close. The lag is anyones computer. The better the computer, the better the frame rate. Please play the game again with my corrections and then fix your review.

A little less laggy
An understatement much? - its actually playable now, read my post above (bold text) to further decrease lag.
Cons:
Camera glitch were you can't turn it to the left of the screen
?? Elaborate, I haven't experienced this ever
Sprint won't stop
I haven't used sprint enough to notice
Enemys are still do the same thing over and over making them easy targets and look stupid
AI was very hard and this is still one of the few games to actually have AI that works anyway
The center camera thing won't let me exit the game forcing me to log off, I can't even make alice quite with the task manager.
As it says in the first post press ctrl to switch to screen-lock instead of window-lock and move mouse up to see it, or (as I said in my post above) Press Pause|Break to pause the world or press backspace to restart the world and it will stop mouse-catching.
No halo 2 music in intro
Meh

23/100

Overall the game is still in early alpha (?) and is barely playable. Sorry for the low score and I understand the game is still in development but I think you should work on it a lot. So for now I will be playing Halo the generator. Keep me posted on updates
