Post Phalanx Crab
Image

First time I played "first signs" I've felt a bit dissapointed, no menace posible...
After see the original phalanx concept, and play some zalo crab...
(Perhaps a heavier version will be updated in future, nothing confirmed)
I've decided to make it playable!


Image

Improves :

- Jetpack -
- AntiTank turret -
- Revolutionary system of stability developed by areku using lua -
(Press Z or X for manual stability)

Disclamer:
The size of the cannon its fully justified, play it, and you'll be agreed.
If you have a cool device like "fireball-shooter" to add to this crab, feel free to suggest!

Just one thing: It isn't to scale.

Yeah, but you could at least make it a bit bigger. Maybe about as tall as a dreadnought and proportionally wider?

Just how does this balancing work?

Anyways nice sprites, maybe add a bit more types of crabs.

I'm assuming this crab has a weakspot that we can attack for Massive Dam-

*is socked*

Nice spriting!

Looks kinda cliche, crab with a gun, but I'll try it out.
At first glance: Too much black, and its too dark to look like its out in the sunlight.

The gun just needs some kind of counterbalance sticking out of the back of it. Right now it looks weird that its attached at the very back end.

And it could be smaller. Don't assume what our complaints will be.

dragonxp@ : When you tab Z the crab rotate a bit to left and when you tab X the crab rotate a bit to right,
Its very useful and funny when you want to use it like a metal-fling-hammer, overpowered well used.
About making it more light, I disagree, many users hate shiny sprites until puke...

Fat Zombie@: jejeje... yeah keep dreaming, and thanks ^^

CrazyMLC@ : well, It is a cliché, but I like classical things, jeeps with guns, crab with guns, and butter on butts.

Darlos9D@ : I have to agree, I can sprite almost everything but I don't know what sprite for this one...
that's why the gun looks like a potato cannon...

Shiny is usually better... as least in my opinion. Not like I can force you to do it, but I'd recommend giving it a try.
