Earth Taken 2

In Earth Taken 2, an action platformer by SeethingSwarm, you are a survivor, trying desperately to shoot through the hordes of aliens who've turned the world toxic. So a lot like the first Earth Taken, then. Jocularity aside, though, while there's a lot that's the same, gameplay has also been refined, making this the sci-fi horror game the original could and should have been.

A lot more challenging platforming, and the slight lag is starting to get me. Not being able to grab the "dogs" while on the ladder was a bit of a curveball. Looking for the secret areas is still fun. Narrative still nicely perilous!

I keep dying on lvl 11, at the top of the first ladder, and I can't figure out why.

DAM, probably you're getting radiation poisoning. Keep pressing the 'x' button from time to time to clear yourself of radiation.
The only place not radiated in that level is the mothership.

As for the game itself, it's quite fun, but... it just bores after beating it. The design, when it regards equipment is logic, but it aches, because you're forced to replay previous levels in order to get certain upgrades, that later fall under the following moot point.

The weapon choices are also vague. A knife can cut through everything, given enough time. A shotgun can with at most two shots kill everything and when upgraded kills everything in one shot. The variety of enemies and their AI are also downs. And also it seems pointless to add between every level an HQ just to refill on stuff, thus making the actual number of levels where you do something other than loaf around around 5 or 6.

But the simplicity of the graphics, the references to Acid Bunny, the storyline and good ol'fashioned alien fighting makes the game for me.

I thought this one was easier than the first. I still enjoyed it though. The addition of the knife and the option of sneak attacks with it was fun.

Ok, game isn't loading for me. I'm using Chrome. It did load up the first couple times I played it but now after the ad all that comes up is a blank white screen.

Really nice game but the controls are a bit of a grind. Whats wrong with mouse aim and up for jump?
