Not bad

Though to me this was like Gradius but with useless dialogue. Yes I know that sounds a bit critical but its like your trying to add something that just isn't needed or merely trying to add more then there needs to be. Though I think the difficulty is rather low compared to your average space shooters. Games like gradius and soldner-x i find myself dying a fair amount. However when I can literally sit there, without moving, and simply hold the space button down to fire and kill the boss without really even loosing health.....you have a severe problem, I kid you not, the boss is the first level you can choose I sat there and he never even touched me. That's not a boss....merely a large obstacle. After three more levels of this I just had to quite. So I am not saying its a bad game by far, I'm just saying there is a lot to work on

Epic.

Ill start off with the only thing not awesome about it i guess, the in-battle graphics and stuff wasnt super awesome, not bad, but nothing really that outstanding.

Now with the other stuff: the upgrade system was nice, only thing i woulda liked in addition is if i could always somehow upgrade stuff i had ;-; (didnt even see a wave cannon thingy till about 4 levels after deadeye researched it) but it was still a great upgrade system for a flash game

The story was... just... mind-blowingly awesome. In my opinion, this rivals and may beat the epic battle fantasy series (person to person opinion of course, i personally couldnt say which i like better) for the best story for any flash game out there, all the characters were great, lots of plot twists and surprises; the story is probly what kept me hooked on to this game, and the ending was enjoyable.

So... suggestions from me would include... well, better graphics in the game if possible, maybe tweak the upgrading system a little, to make it so you can upgrade some weapons more easily so you dont have to rely on chancing by them which is a little bit of a problem late game (although it does add a fairly unique aspect to the game), the module system is a nice feature though, liked it cause it kept people from just buying a billion of them and becoming practically invulnerable. Also the cafe thing was a nice feature but i might have liked to have had a little control in the conversations where it wouldnt directly interfere with the plot, since the description says dating sim.

So, without further adieu,
MOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRR.

just wow

OK first time, and possibly only time i will write a review of a game. mainly because for the most part i never see the need in reviewing the work. but this is a special occasion. I absolutely loved playing through the game. great plot and characters, i especially liked Deadeye, i found her bluntness rather hilarious at times. The game itself wasn't short, so distracted me from my study for a decent 6 hours, which i thank you. also was not too hard to play.

However i have a few criticisms I am sorry to say. first of all, the bosses. I see how you got around using the same ones, the plot line does a good job at avoiding that problem, but i felt that different bosses may have improved the gaming experience. and the only other thing was the mass of weapons you get. i did like the range, but to be honest i think 8 primary is just pushing it. Sorry, that is just my opinion.

Other than the above paragraph i would just like to restate that you should be very proud of your work. :)

The best RPG game I've played on Newgrounds!

I am simply amazed at how well this game was put together, and the fact that it's free. The story and dialogue are beyond good and border on perfection, the upgrades are fun to use, the levels are simple yet work well, and the bosses were hard yet not impossible to beat.

This game took a couple sittings for me to finish. Before finishing I had to visit my relative's house and all I could think about was finishing this game. And that's saying a lot! Because I've never thought about a newgrounds game once I turn off the computer.

If you like RPG games you have to play this one!
