Those evil aliens sure are dumb.
They learned nothing from the humiliation of defeat at the battle of Starmageddon and continue to foolishly believe they can beat us. Here they come again intent on enslaving mankind, molesting our livestock and just generally being downright rude.
We're not gonna stand for that.
You know what to do soldier - give 'em hell...
Shoot stuff. Collect stuff ejected from the stuff you just shot.
Move your ship using either the mouse or the arrow or WASD keys. Your guns fire automatically. Activate your repulsion-wave with the left mouse-button or X or M key. The repulser functions defensively by destroying all enemy bullets it touches and blocking enemy beam weapons.
It also has an offensive function, inflicting damage on all enemies in range. An upgraded repulser can be an effective means of quickly annihilating large groups of closely packed enemies.
Dying enemies eject treasure worth money you can spend in the shop on upgrades, stars for extra points and power-ups which replenish health, increase lives, increase score-multiplier or activate shields.
Annihilate all enemies in a formation to gain a squad-bonus worth extra points.
Enemies armed with beam-weapons unleash a shockwave when they explode, similar in effect to your repulser, this can be helpful when fighting hordes of enemies.
...This is the sequel to my previous game "Starmageddon".
I'm not sure if I've managed to improve on the original, I've made a lot of incremental changes which I _hope_ are improvements. One thing I'm definitely pleased with is the addition of "squad bonuses" awarded for annihilating entire enemy formations: Whenever I play these sort of games I always get a kind of OCD satisfaction from being so thorough and I wanted the game to acknowledge that sense of achievement.
