I think this is a great game! I'm thouroughly impressed as it was written in TNT Basic, not overly complicated but still lots of fun!

I think Tang fulfills its intention - to be a fun, cute game for kids. I liked the concept and graphics.

Unsophisticated in design and limited in playability, this might appeal to children, or adults without imagination.
It's not all that interesting....it begs for a wider range of play; it seems rather crippled in its two dimensionality. It lacks any semblance of the "sizzle" that gives a well constructed game the ability to make the player want to come back for more.
This game reflects a rather hampered ability on the part of the developer....as if it were a school assignment in "Game Development 101".
I think the developer needs to push his limits a lot further, spend more time developing his skills.

Hi, thanks for the feed back, I will keep it in mind for the next title. It was aimed at Kids and to be as harmless as possible. It is my first game, it was 101 for me. I have now changed development tools which will address a few things, Tang originally was OpenGL this had added the extra something in the form of double the animation. It was unfortunate I had to disable it to too many issues involved with the Tool it was developed in. Regards Tim.
