Classic top-down shooter with stat building and parts customization!
Multiple planets to see, weapons to collect, and big bosses to fight.
High scores and Medals available!

In the works since July 2010, the top-down shooter genre has been something I've always wanted to cover. Big thanks to Hyptosis and Kelwyshade for their art and music, otherwise I'd still be stuck with an unpolished engine. I think we ended up with a solid product, hope you enjoy!

similar to the regent

the enemies remind me of androids called the Regent, the destroyed the race that created them and they are trying to rob all the planets of their resources, the thing thats different is that the regent have slightly better technology. however its hard destroying these enemies with this DESPICABLE, INCAPABLE, 2 BIT EARTH SHIP! this would never happen with us and the Regent, why humanity?

Mediocre

The levels were rather uninteresting and repetitive with no obstacles other than enemy ships. That's fine in games like 1943 or Twinbee where there's tons of bullets to dodge and loads of powerups to collect, but since none of that is going on here, it leads to a very boring experience. No one level really stands out here as well- especially with the same music. Every level of every Gradius game is extremely memorable and, ergo, can be mastered through repeated playthroughs.

The art style, though intricate, seems very flat and sterile. A lot of games in this genre aim for bolder colors and higher contrast on the foreground objects to not only make the game more visually appealing, but also to make hazards more noticeable. None of the ships (including the player's) were animated aside from the thrusters.

Music was okay, but did not loop smoothly and got repetitive quickly. I eventually had to mute it and put the awesome Xexex soundtrack on ;).

Lastly, the hit-box on your ship is, in my opinion, far too large (the Vic Viper's in Gradius V was like, one pixel in the cockpit). Pulling off some extreme maneuvering through enemy fire is half the fun in a game like this, and it's neigh impossible with the hit-box as large as it is.

Having played a lot of the old-school shmups, (my favorite genre of video game) this one was just 'O.K.' Wasn't terrible, but doesn't really stand out.
