>> 01/15/2010 - The sequel to Retroshoot, RetroShoot360 is coming soon!

Hi! This is my first flash shoot-em-up game! I wanted to code a game that was easy to play, fun to look at, and also be challenging. I'd be very impressed if someone can play the game through without using any continues. Some of the levels can be kind of wacked out, but that's the spirit of the game. Nothing too complicated, just move the mouse around, avoid being hit and shoot everything.

It won the mochi friday game of the week which is cool. I hope you peeps enjoy the game.

Here's the "official" description. :) lol..

RetroShoot - Grab your mouse and shoot stuff!

RetroShoot is an easy to play shooter that's 100% mouse controlled with auto fire. Evade the retronauts and their fire, and battle your way through level after level of fast action game play. Along the way, collect power up orbs for massive weapon upgrades and bombs.

Features:
Colorful graphics with a neon retro look.
Visually exciting particle based explosions.
Over 40 levels with lots of variety.
Pulsating music track and sound fx.

Can you battle your way through all 40 levels?
Can you defeat the onslaught of the retronauts?
Can you unlock all 4 mini games?

04/17 Update!
That nasty bug causing the game to not run, should be nailed! But make sure you have Flash Player 10 installed as well. :)

04/15 Update!
Press "M" to toggle the music off/on.
Mystery error causing the game to not work sometimes should be fixed!

Goodlooking but not so bright

Playing this game, made me realize how much i love these kinds of games. This game looks brilliant. I love all the different colors. I love the color explosions. The graphics are amazing.
Music is pretty good. I wish it changed though, this game is not that short so the tune got annoying.
Now game play... Its alright. Your ship shoots all the time, this is okay because you move with the mouse and having to click it all the time would get really frustrating. If this game had a controller then the auto shooting would get annoying because shooting with a controller is way more relaxing in these kinds of games. The levels change direction witch the moving with the mouse is good so you don't have to switch with the arrow keys.
Something i didn't like was the power up system. I read some of the reviews about people complaining about how the power ups were random, and yes that is the problem. This wouldn't be a problem though if the power ups didn't have a time limit! So i gain a power boost in level one and lose it on level three, that's not cool, and making it random just ruin's the game. This bases the game more off luck then skill. This game loses a lot of the addicting and replay value because of this power up system. I would love playing this game over and over agien if my power ups stacked and stayed with me. But knowing that i might get some lame explosion power up when im on the lowest power i could b makes me not want to play. That is the only problem i had with this game, but it is a big problem though.
