Hey Hey! It's been a bit since my last post on levels. I had a couple of recent concerns with performance, so I did some play testing within the Construct 2 development community to see if there are any major issues. To my surprise there weren't any major performance problems (that I wasn't aware of).
I did however get some great feed back which resulted in tweaks, changes, and refinement.
I added some elevators, with some directional signaling. They are also smart, and return automatically if they are out of view and the player is near.
Also tweaked the camera positioning to aid with "Leaps of Faith" I also added the ability to have the player look up or down if not moving or in an action state.
// Other Tweaks & Additions:
*more camera shake
*more dynamic explosion animations
*refined shoot to kill ratio
With all that said and done... I (for shits & giggles) tested the gameplay in a browser. (I'm not directly targeting the browser, but Construct 2 is HTML5 so it is essentially a stripped down browser when exported to desktop. Typically there are performance drawbacks) To my surprise the game is performing really well in Chrome.
So... The Robot 505 Pre Alpha DEMO is up to play. :D

*Keyboard & Gamepad support!
*I am not targeting browsers directly, so there maybe issues.
*I did notice an issue running at full screen on an i3 with integrated video.
It's 1 level repeating (3 times) and a boss level. At the end of boss level - game will repeat and you will be on round 2 - 1st level. Difficulty ramps up each level along with un-lockable weapons.
As long as the game continues to be playable in the browser, I will continually update the game.
Have fun and feel free to send feedback.
