Fun top-down shooter where you must kill all the aliens on the planet Gliese. Thousands of enemies the attack - can you survive the onslaught?

1. "Firebullets" not affect the rocket launcher;
2. Enemies can't attack you while in their death animation;
3. Fixed bugs after the death of player.

Thanks kellmaster

I don't mind this game much, although it gets boring after you have done everything. There is not a lot of creativity in this game...

The same enemies are used over and over. The perks are fun, but once you have everything. Its not that much fun anymore... I would give this a 3 because of: Very nice graphics and bullet animations. Perks are fun, some weapons fun.

Cons: Very repeatitive, not a lot of a 'reason' why some random guy is killing creatures. Nothing much after you have everything else.

Improvements: Try add more creatures with more detail, not just the same ones... add more games you can do, not just two...

It's nowehere near original. The controls are repetive and there is not story at all. I suggest adding plot to make it more interesting to play. Give viewers a reason to play this game. Endless waves of shooting enemies is not going to achieve it. I liked the graphics, although you could be more creative on the enemies.

NEVER GET THE DISPERSION UPGRADE !! I liked the game, was going to give it a 4 I made it to wave 16 no problem, then I went back and got the dispersion upgrade. It turns my alien slaying, path making plasma shotgun into a weak railgun. I squeaked by to wave 18 now i'm pretty much sunk because I don't have a spread weapon to make clear paths with so I'm just surrounded and die unless I get a lucky hyptmo and shield bonus at the same time to help me group them up.

lol with all the powerups, it's possible to beat the last wave with just the pistol.

As for the game, it's ok, but unoriginal and unispired.


Rated 1.5 / 5 stars

Controls: Responsive and intuitive. Usual WASD+mouse combo, nothing more, nothing less.

Graphics: Bland, unimaginative, repetitive, perhaps even primitive-looking. Nothing really stands out. The backdrop is just a repeating mash of stuff, blended together. Three or perhaps four different backgrounds only. The weapon icons in the shop don't matter since nothing really changes for the in-game avatar.

Gameplay: The same old survival+topdown+rpg element stuff, except it's really repetetive this time. There is almost no point to the experience system, since the experience gain for every level will be the same if you weren't an utter failure of foresight and didn't take the experience bonus upgrade at the very beginning. The money suffer's from the same fate. There are no additional upgrades to the weapons, except buying further weapons. Even that is sometimes a downgrade, I found my upgrade from sawed-off shotgun to the gauss gun (which is not really a gauss gun at all, judging from the weapon icon) a very poor investment which nearly cost me my life.

The monsters are sparse representations of what they are supposed to be, and there is a LOT of them. The game tries to be difficult by throwing an unbelievable amount of monsters at you, but it's not how you make a game difficult AND enjoyable. There are no boss monsters (at least not that I encountered, I gave up and started to write this as soon as I died for the first time, which was around the middle) or no monsters that require certain tactics other than running around and just shooting. It would have been nice to see exploding monsters or monsters that shoot at you.

The game suffers from a lot of grammatical errors. Although they are not severe as to cause complete misunderstanding, they are annoying. It makes me think that the author just threw the text through the Google Translator.

Music: Only two soundtracks I believe. One in the upgrade screen and one in the monster killing screen, and even that is a loop of some guitar sounds. It gets irritating fast and it makes the game think it's awesome just by putting in electric guitar loop.

Summary: It's your standard "survive and upgrade" shooter, it can kill time, but there are much better games that can do the same thing while also allowing you to ENJOY the experience.

1,5 stars.
