I like

Its a combination of two classic arcade games you deserve a 4/5

Good game, but....

I am slightly confused, are there only 2 levels? or is this game just not working correctly on my computer? I cant seem to "move on" from the first level of each game mode, is this intentional? If not this game may be a bit buggy.
Either way, its fun, i like the retro style of it.

I think some further development is very possible for this game, perhaps adding upgrades and maybe instead of a simple paddle make it resemble a ship like the one from galaga or somesuch, for artistic flair.

Well played

great game

The game was actually surprisngly good. At first glance i though to myself "man, this is so boring". Then, i started to play more and more and realized that it was actually quite fun. The game picks up when more missiles start to circulate and also become faster and faster.

The controls themselves are really good, altough an keyboard-alternative would've been good. The mouse sometimes gets off screen when you need to do a quick swift and then you're left open.

Graphics: like they're supposed to be. I love the whole pixelated arcade-feel and would'nt want anything else. Good job!

Music: Very good song. It completes the oldschool feel and adds that little extra. When you die and it feels frustrating to play it all over it becomes less so because of it.

Last but not least, the medals. They add very much to the enjoyment of every game and you did the right thing by including them.

I agree that the mouse running off the bottom/top of the screen is really annoying, but keyboard just doesn't have enough analog control for the game's pace of play. The mouse allows everything from a slow, precise shift that enables aiming bounces to hit the last couple enemies, to wild, erratic swings that literally jump across screen in one or two frames and allow hitting multiple missiles is super quick succession, and everything in between. The keyboard just can't compete with that. It's kind of like console controllers auto-aiming in shooters, but not needing that feature if you're playing a PC shooter and have a mouse -- the mouse is just an awesome control device and allows control and precision unmatched by alternatives.

cool concept

i too have found that the game freezes when you beat the first level perfectly. what gives?


jonathansfox responds:

I would like to know what gives too. I guessed it might be medal related, but I just tested this out with an alternate account that doesn't have the medals yet, and still wasn't able to reproduce a game freeze after beating the first level perfectly -- I just got two medals and the game continued.
