Under rating threshold (show) Lots of fun. Love the gameplay, love the style. I gave it 4/5 instead of 5/5 though, but only because the game was so short. You could add more levels and more abilities. Flying, swimming, magnetics, invisibility, bombs, upgrading aim like the ability to shoot up or down. There's lots of potential here for a whole series.

Under rating threshold (show) Great little game. I wanted to play more. I'd love to see some additions (more levels, more upgrade, achievements... anything really). The only problem I had was that the boss was really, really easy. It's just the same pattern a few times until you shoot him down. The only time I lost was when I ran out of time before I killed him.

Under rating threshold (show) FYI on boss - multiple hits do not work. Just look at his life bar (the vertical colorful bar on the top right). Basically just use 1 bullet each time he falls. + for others to know.

Under rating threshold (show) I have to say this game won me over and filled me with a great sense of nostalgia! Loved the art and whole lay out. It was a quick play (ie perfect for a flash game) and once I got over the very first death shock I was struck by the genius of it all. Defiantly a fav. I thought the 'pattern' style of boss fight was well done for the game as well. Would LOVE to see more!

Under rating threshold (show) First, I looked what was on screen and died. WTF ? Then looked at upgrade board and understood. Nice, short, fun, this is how flash games should be imho. Voted 4/5 because it could have more stuff to upgrade like some others said. Can't wait for a sequel.

Under rating threshold (show) Overall, I enjoyed the game. I like how the game progresses nicely. Although, the only thing that kept me from giving it a perfect score was the fact that the boss only had one attack pattern. You should have tried to make it a bit more difficult to dodge his shots, perhaps by adding a gun after every 25% health was gone. Something that would have made the fight less boring. Otherwise, solid 4/5 game.

Under rating threshold (show) Really cool game! I could see my self playing this for a very long time, but only if there were more levels and abilities... Different weapons, and more specials (like the double-jump) and some passive abilities like coin-magnet, monster repellant or others... 4/5 so far, but loads of potential for a 5/5 game!... Good job!

Under rating threshold (show) !!!TIPS FOR THE BOSS!!! Stay under him, dodge his fire. When he starts spraying bullets, remain under him for protection. When he stops spraying he stomps the ground. That is the time for you to go next to him and shoot him while he's on the ground and while he's taking off. Repeat until he's dead. I finished with full health and 50 sec left, so no problem. PRO TIP: shoot at the boss until he dies.

Under rating threshold (show) All right folks, it's theory time. I'm gonna try and explain why what happens in Johnny Upgrade happens. Here goes: You never play as the original Johnny. The robot has found a way to cause the environment where the "level" is to cause people to lose every skill they have, and filled the air with poisonous gas that you can't last very long in. Johnny knew of this, and since he can't fight the robot himself, he has created an army of clones. Every upgrade you get is an upgrade for the clones; giving them the ability to keep their skills in the crazy environment. See, these upgrades are expensive, and being a superhero isn't a very high paying job. The actual Johnny is seen in the loading screen, the beginning when Johnny explains the whole upgrade thing, and the ending, where Johnny is seen flying away. The actual Johnny can fly, you see, but he can't seem to figure out how to get his clones to do so, although he did manage to give them a double jump. What do you think?

Under rating threshold (show) I agree with many people on the graphics. With as quickly as you end up moving and as much as is going on onscreen this game needs a low-graphics option for those of us who use slower/older/campus computers.

Under rating threshold (show) If you want a fast track to the boss while skipping all the enemies, upgrade your jumping and get double jump as well. At the area you start off at go left and jump to a hidden area you should be on the bottom floor.

Under rating threshold (show) Don't shoot the boss more than once at a time. The first shot makes him invulnerable. Which is B.S. as it means you need a certain level of time to beat him and there's no player skill that can reduce that.

Under rating threshold (show) @beeble2003: Read th3ch0s3n0n3 comment. Only the first shot will hurt the boss each time it hits the ground. So with a fully powered-up gun, it will take 4 times for the boss to hit the ground for you to kill it. Which means you only need 4 shots when you enter the boss room. @NatelysWhore: For the rapid-fire volley, you don't dodge THROUGH the volley. The point of the volley is to force you to be underneath the boss. Then all you need to do is run left and right and stay under the boss while it shoots downwards. That's why vincentp said it was easy. If you want to get some experience dodging the boss's attacks, do a search in Kongregate for games that have the tag "Bullet Hell." They'll make dodging the bosses attack in this game a cakewalk, which is probably why this game only has an Easy Badge.
