See what others are saying about Ascii Patrol. Their very first impressions come from reddit's gamedev Feedback Friday:

Awesome to see it getting some useful feedback there. I've been super busy lately with my own release prep, so haven't had a chance to check out Alpha 1 before today.

Unfortunately, it's become even less playable than before for me :/ (latest FF, Win7). Earlier it was just rare hiccups presumably due to the GC, but now it's too jittery to even survive much of the first map. I tried it in my backup browser, Opera, and it doesn't work at all there (just shows a black screen). I can't even install Chrome on my machine, so I couldn't try that...

The downloadable version works great, but I wanted to try and get on the online high scores :P

Yep, I noticed that, heavy forging alpha 9?

even less playable
I think the issue is related to browser's indexed DB, which I use to store persistent files and recording player's key presses.
Later, I'll provide you a test link w/o this functionality, if it would run at least as smooth as pre-alpha I'll get rid off IDB somehow.

Good to hear, note that you can have hi-scores with windows version if you install CURL https://curl.haxx.se/
Also windows version requires at the moment manual font change and palette tweaking, will be done from app in next version.

Thanks!

Yup, Alpha 9 is done so I'm kinda relaxing today :)

I'd be happy to try out a test link for you.

I've uploaded the hotfix, directly to the alpha directory, so in order to see if it is working, press refresh in your browser.
I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping to see your nick on hi-scores soon, thanks.
