I can't figure out what the fuckin controls are so my ship gets destroyed in the first 8 seconds of storymode wtf.

I didn't like it. That does not mean it's a bad game, but it does not match my standards in a few questions:

Visual - Even "Space Invaders" had a rather clean aspect. The game is visually overriden with colours and pixels and whatnot - it's confusing and ugly.

Storyline - I just couldn't think on it's terms. There is an incoming fleet - not ship, fleet - that knows better to announce itself but has no decoder? The very same one used on the human ships, that had, by accident, the decoding key of a number of ships comming from a place called "black sector" that should spawn nothing?

I had no fun myself. Game has a nice soundtrack and many people seem to have enjoyed it, so, if you're reading this, you'd do better in trying for yourself. :)

Not really very interesting or original IMO. The lingering mouse pointer should really be a crosshair and the gameplay is instantly samey. A decent effort but nothing too amazing.

Start the game, get killed in 7 seconds, give it another try with upgraded damage, don't understand why you die so fast, don't understand why your spaceship is turning around, cannot avoid attacks, quit.

I'm VERY sorry, but this game won't load despite trying three (3) times, and there is no indication that I must update my Flash player, so I have to rate this game as ZERO (0). :(
