theres only one thing wrong

to many controls

rytherix responds:

It would be hard to lower the amount of player controls without decimating the players control over the game environment.
However, I will admit that this game was made to be played with a MOUSE and Keyboard, and will proably only appeal to non-casual gamers

Nice shooting game...Except the physics are even worse than in Star Wars, and watching the cutscenes every time you restart the mission is pointless.

rytherix responds:

Physics......? StarWars?? Cutscences?!?!?
This game only has like one cutscene lol =P

This is such an irritating game. I don't mind the fact that I kept dying even when only on the second level (the homing missiles from the other ships are far too powerful by the way, there's practically no way to avoid them without using the speed mode, which then makes you move too fast to track the enemy ship and waste all your power so you have no armour to defend against the incoming missile barrage), but the way you have to sit through the same speech over and over is just too annoying for me to continue playing. I don't need to be told how to move the ship or aim, that could be put in a tutorial mode which you don't have to replay if you don't move to exactly the right space below the space station in the first level. I also really hate having to pay for repairs to the ship.

The thing is, I actually really wanted to enjoy the game, as I can tell a lot of work has been put into it and I liked the upgrade system (although my missiles never seemed to launch), but I found the Crysis-style mode wheel too irritating to have to keep switching around mid-combat and couldn't face having to repeat the same story text over and over (skipping each text still takes time).

=/ Sorry, perhaps you could gain helpful insight from the games extensive game guide -black-knife-guide
Hopefully some tips in this guide can help you become a Ace pilot =D

god game but



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Deserves 10/10

Difficulty didn't bother me that much but,
1-I found "guided missile" is really absurd weapon since we can't zoom out the screen.
2-Game ends too soon, needs more lvls:)
3-When I started playing, I fail first mission 3 times so I needed to all over the tutorial again. Why people need tutorial 4 times?
4-I couldn't find a menu, games needs menues. And ~ key not worked for me. Is it kinda bug?
5- Great game man, I loved the manual jump thing. I love the concept I loved the smoothness of the afterburners


People find this review helpful!
rytherix responds:

1. There is a zoom out feature right unde the Radar =), although its never mentioned in the game =/
2. Sorry about that! I never really even meant for there to be a campaign for this game, so I am glad you enjoyed the short one there was enough to want it last longer =D
3. I should add a skip tutorial and intro scene button, but I have recently lowered the difficulty of first mission by a lot. (Safe zone was expanded 1000%)
4. In the pause screen there is a main menu button, and the ~ key should work =/, I have never encountered that error before
5. Thanks! I glad you could still enjoy the game even with all the negatives you mentioned!
