Alrighty then (Spoilers)

Beat this on Kongregate, but I figured it would arrive here eventually. The story is extremly good for a flash game, with bright colorful graphics and intresting characters. I am disapointed by the limited selection of music, though.

The shooter aspect is well done, if a little repetitive. Enemy placment in world 2 and 3 is actually clever, with shields defending strong attackers and the turrets being placed in just such a way that they arn't so easily beaten. The game overall felt challenging without being cheap.

The date-sim part is something that, while being well done, isn't something I enjoy. The random nature and hidden event qualification combined with multiple endings make it all but impossible to really see everything. I did read some kind of guild on how to unlock the endings, but it was so complex it just gave me a headache. I would have prefered if all the characters were avaliable to talk to after every mission, and it's simply a matter of talking to them the right amount of times, rather than hidden requirments. it's just that this part wasn't my cup of tea.

The crew's backstories and history was quite intresting to read, and it's obvious you've put in a ton of effort into their characters. Personalities and everyone was well beyond what's seen in almost every flash game, and even some larger scale releases. Seriously, well done. i would love to see more games (maybe smaller mini releases) based on this universe and characters you've made.

I must say that this truly is a wonderful game, despite my personal dislike of the cryptic date sim part. It's not flawless, but it's pretty close. I am a little dissapointed by the New Game + and Hard Mode. I have no idea what extras hard mode had, but I didn't see anything super special. I also would have liked it if New Game+ didn't increase the difficulty. It would have made hunting for all the medals and endings a lot easier if on my 2nd time through, I could power my way through everything.

Final words: Well done.

Great game, with little need of improvement

This is a very fun, unique game that could keep me occupied for hours on end. The gameplay itself is simple and pretty easy, yet not so easy that I feel like there's no challenge. However, it's the storyline that reeled me in and sets this game apart from any generic side-scrolling shooter. It has an interesting plot and a deep emphasis on character development. The character art is in a beautiful anime style, but I found some of the enemy designs to be somewhat plain while others were very unique and creative. The soundtrack was simply beautiful.

The only thing I could think of improving on is the scenery you can't fly through on the levels. In certain places, such as the city level, it's hard to distinguish the background from the parts that you can't fly through. If you make a sequel(which I REALLY hope for) perhaps make those objects stand out a bit more, and maybe be able to shoot through them.

This is a very good game and I would love to see a sequel sometime in the future. I must have MOAR!!1!

Enjoyable

One of, if not the best flash games I've had the chance to play. The music sets a good mood although that 20MB filesize seems large for a flash, but its worth it.

Good sir...

I beleive I wouldnt be wrong if I said this was inspired by ANIME! Dialog sort of feels like a manga, which of course automatically means its amazing. Toodles!

As I said on Armorgames...

This is what console devs need to be watching. Xdanond, I hope you have a long and fruitful career making games - I'll be playing every one you put out.
