This is good

The game is fairly solid and the story is solid as well, I enjoy games with multiple endings as it makes me want to play through them again to see the rest. However while playing the Absolute Zero zone, I noticed some gaps in the walls that you could fly and shoot through while the rest of the wall you couldn't and at the end of some areas I would just die randomly for no reason. Other than that, it's solid.

Great game, but you can still do a bit better.

This game was really an amazing experience. The gameplay, though enemies and stages and even the bosses start to repeat, is bearable, and won't even matter anymore once you get to stage three because you're too busy worrying about staying alive. The story was very interesting, though too text based, making it tough on anybody who doesn't read quickly (Plus, some scenes just aren't so awesome when it's only text.). My only complaints is the scenery. They're quite bland, and they also makes some projectiles difficult to see sometimes. Also, the controls might also stick, but that doesn't occur too often.

Just as a thought, did you decide to make the ship weaker for Hard Mode? Because I always end up getting to the boss with about 3/4 of my health just to die in three hits. Plus, the enemies seem to last a lot longer than usual, meaning more dodging for me. -.-

Anyways, great game. I'm looking to see if you make a sequel of some sort. Now, back to the secret ending... 9/10, 5/5

Excellent Game!

Note that I write this after playing normal mode, and will be playing hard mode promptly after to find the extra goodies, and hopefully the secret ending.

First and foremost, I felt really in tune with the characters and the storyline had me hooked right from the beginning. Its not to hard imagining this becoming an anime at any time due to the nicely written storyline either.
The characters for the most part were well developed, as was the plot which drove the storyline. Music absolutely complimented the entire game, and weapon balancing for the most part was absolutely perfect.

I only had 3 things that really affected the general experience for me though. First, the backgrounds were well...repetitive to say the least, throughout all three levels. Just a different shading of color didn't suffice to add to the experience.

Fighting progressively increasing numbers of enemies is all fine, but increasingly large numbers of similar looking enemies through three levels got pretty boring. It got pretty hectic at times with all the bullets everywhere though which helped take my mind of that for the most part.

Final problem is that while adding obstacles and such is a great thing, the backgrounds did not do them justice for the most part, and some of them looked really out of place, like the snail shells in the forest on the third levels forest zone.
Not to mention while this didn't happen often and had little to no real affect on game-play in general, I would die for absolutely no apparent reason when I played on certain levels with mazes involved. This primarily happened when skimming the top or bottom edge of the screen with objects nearby but not touching.

Things that would add to the experience: Power-ups that didn't phase through walls out of your grasp. One or two more power-ups, like a health restoration power up of +10% restored on a very low chance of drop or something of the like. And finally, something to upgrade fire rate of both secondary and primary weapons. I was a little confused when agility didn't do that as it broke with the norms of most games I play.

I was a bit sad to see Ginny die, and I hope that her not dying or something of the like has something to do with the secret ending. But other then that, besides what was mentioned above, this is an excellent game deserving of a 10/10 rating. Hope to see more from you soon.

Absolutely Fantastic.

This game is amazing. I normally don't play side scrolling shooters for long periods of time but this one is an exception. It has a very well thought out plot with funny side conversations with crew members. Deadeye is a pretty funny character in particular. I like the differences in the characters personalities. I think the game could use some interaction between the characters and maybe the possibility to take out more than one ship. I haven't finished the game yet so I hope the ending is good. I have payed some of the levels several times so the levels are not very challenging after a time period. I think there might be some glitches with some of the bosses because I have rarely died and I always die in these types of games.
