The Next Floor The Next Floor

Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

Fun, but flawed.

This game is all about the gameplay, as with most tower defence games there is little emphasis put on graphics and no storyline in sight. Unfortunately, there isn't very much gameplay to speak of here. Sure, it can be fun clicking repeatedly to mow down rows of enemies, but that's all you'll spend the game doing, as the entrenched weapons aren't up to much more than being a stopgap.

Which would be fine, except the lag in the game kills this principle stone dead. Particularly with the addition of the fourth floor, the lag in the game makes it almost impossible to successfully move elevators between floors; basically, most games will finish with you watching a floor become overrun while you curse and frantically try to click and drag elevators around when the game thinks you're trying to shoot (perhaps mapping the "shoot" and "move" commands to different keys would help with this).

Fun for a few minutes gaming, but not something you'll play repeatedly.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


Overall, a very, very good game. Definitely one of the finest sniper games on Newgrounds.
Gameplay was excellent, with none of the accuracy glitches that plague some sniper games. Choosing the R700 as your sniper rifle model (I assume that was the chosen model anyway) was a good idea, as it kept the magazine capacity down to four rounds and thus encouraged careful shot selection. Nice mix of levels and targets, the missions requiring the use of guided ammo and bullet physics were especially well-made.
Graphics were very good. The overall black and red visual motif of the menu was a little heavy due to the obvious gore connection, but it worked well nonetheless. In-game animations were fluid and well-cut.
Music was the only area that was found a little bit wanting. The main track was good, but hearing it over and over for the entire course of the game until the end was just too repetitive, it got very boring.

Overall, excellent game. The little extras such as the Instant Replay and the cameo from a certain smoking superspy were nice touches too!
