Webby 3 (And the other Webby Games)

This technically isn't a new game since I released it a few while ago, but i'd imagine most of you have never played it. So I'm going to talk about it anyway.

Webby 3 is obviously the 3 game in my Webby Series. The original Webby was the first flash game I ever made, Pretty much all the free time I had during my last year of highschool was devoted to the first Webby. Its not a great game by any means, and looking back it was far too difficult. But hey I was still learning.

A while later, I decided to make a sequel to Webby, this used the same engine as the first and included a new enemy, new powerups and a load of different play modes. Using the same engine turned out to be a mistake as it meant that the code got very complicated, especially with different modes. I also added an extra character called Jodii, (which although not directly mentioned, was Webby's girlfriend). This didn't really turn out to be a great game either although it was much more popular than the first Webby Game.

Eventually Webby 2 got popular enough that I decided to make a 3rd game in the series. By this point I had begun to learn AS3 and decided to start fresh with a new engine coded in AS3. This new engine allowed me to created a "story mode" as well as the classic arcade mode. I was able to add more new playable characters (bringing the roster to Webby, Jodii, and Webster as well as secret unlockable character Widow).

The new engine also allowed me to add boss battles, new enemies and lots of new fancier special effects to the game.

The 3rd game was once again more successful than the last 2 however didn't gain the wide exposure I would have liked.

So tell me readers, what do you think of the series so far?

Would you ever want to see a Webby 4?

  1. I'm not sure if the success of Minecraft has helped other indie flash devs or not, but good luck!

  2. Awesome leaps forwards, far more than other games these days, Webby 4 would be even more impressive I'm sure
