This looks so old school! I am going to download right now :)

But I have to ask, why out with a whimper?

Hm, very nice so far, playing with others would have been nice :P
ALso, the weapon changing system is not very good yet...
I often had the message to dual weild something, while my spartan took something complet different up from the ground :/

The dual wield icons are bugged (Which have been fixed). Any other problem is because of weapon overlapping.

Hello!

I don't want to be an *******, but I think you need to fix your graphics...

No, they are not ugly or anything, it is just that is HARD to understand what is going on, maybe it is the background that is also highly detailed and colourful.

If you see Cortex Command, what they do is make the background darker in relation to foreground, and a bit less saturated, the default building blocks for example have light gray foreground and dark gray background. The parts that are colourful have for example orange foreground and dark desaturated blue background.

I don't mean to get into your art direction or anything, I am game designer, not artist, but I was put off by your game plainly because when the action starts in the default level, it gets hard to understand what is on the screen... Sometimes there are someone shooting me, and I don't notice, or I have trouble finding my own character.
