Edit: never underestimate the power of ignorance. An apology to everyone who's played the game so far and found it handled like ass. I've, er, "tweaked" the file a bit for goodness.

Flash 8's required if you don't already have it. I'm assuming graphic-intensity from most of the products I make, so just to be on the safe side don't have too much crunk clogging up your computer when playing along.

Cursor keys move the ship and switch between options. X, C and V toggle your quality, whereas A and Z determine how fast your ship moves. Control is the "OK" function for opening options, and the Space Bar is your friend when it comes to firing lasers.

In a videogame genre where intricate enemy patterns abound and multiple weapons make mincemeat of everything on the screen, this Armor Games-sponsered shoot-em-up relies more on accuracy and points (and a wonky art 'style') for its shits and giggles. As Captain Gray Darius, pilot of the Zig Zuton, you possess an arsenal that would make a footballer laugh and face an opposition that doesn't dare exercise the meaning of the word "attack". Story Mode crowbars a plot into 10 stages of Boydulon-blasting goodness, and Score Attack allows you to rack up the big combos and post your victories online for all to see.

Whichever mode you decide to tackle, you'll only get ahead by aiming well and making every laser count. Scattershot tactics will be your downfall, but if you do kick the big one, take some solace in the fact that a restart - and perhaps a password - is only a button press away.

Who knows, if you get far enough into the story it might be worth your while.

Don't forget to leave some comments and critique behind. You know, just in case the entire game suddenly runs backwards or grinds to a complete halt. I wouldn't like for that to happen.

Not as original as some would have you believe...

Oh wowie! A side scrolling shooter!? With enemies that don't differ except in speed?
And surely no one has ever thought to use multiple backgrounds, especially ones that don't move during levels?
Don't get me wrong, this game isn't bad. I love the music, despite the annoying gun noise. And the art is attractive, but my eyes kept twitching away, to try and stop themselves from bleeding. The movement speed, busy colors, and linear motion on non linear backgrounds, are a killer for a playfield this small.
All in all, there are far better games already here both in this genre and style. I applaud what little effort is discerned from my playthrough, but come on . . .
I don't even get a bomb?

Good for an arcade shooter

It has pretty good graphics. The gameplay is repetitive, but addictive.

Good Job!

(I recommend everyone to try it)

You're done!

Ha, I remember testing this game through your thread. I knew it was going to be good. I'm really suprised at the daily 5th though, I was expecting something better than that though. Ah well, bad day I guess.

The game was great, normally a reptitive side scroller such as this would get on my nerves, but the changing backgrounds, fast decision making and endless levels had me hooked.

The visuals were awesome, something that really backed up the game, as mentioned before the backgrounds were great... a very arty feel.

Overall this game was a great success, I'd like to see more of these. So enjoy my 5 and my request to submit this game to shooters!

Good job!
