Released in December, 2009 as a Flash game, the original Blasting Agent was one of the first games made with the first version of Flixel - an ActionScript 3 game framework. It was was praised by fans and won 3rd place in Newground's Flixel February contest in 2010.
Now, the game has been converted over to HaxeFlixel, a cross-platform, open source, free game development framework, retouched, tweaked, and cleaned up to create the definitive version of this classic game.

If you like Mega Man-style running, gunning, and jumping, Blasting Agent is a lot of fun. Dare I say, a blast? It's a lot of fun to just run through levels blasting at everything that moves, or if you're wanting to explore more, collect as much gold and defeat as many enemies as possible.
GREAT GAME! tons of retro jump-and-shoot goodness! great soundtrack and well designed levels and bosses!
