Update: The Fash 8 version of the game has been deleted and the old submission (this one) has been overwritten with the Flash 8 version. That way there's only one version of Uniwar LC on here. Also the link to the readme is no longer available. Sorry.

Has any body noticed the console in uniwar? Uniwar is the very first flash game to have a very interactive console :) heres a hint, if you beat the game, you'll get some console commands that allow you to "cheat" in the game...enjoy

STRATEGY GUIDE!
People have been having trouble on this game, seems to be too hard for the average person, I would like to thank ManekiNeko for creating this detailed guide to beating Uniwar LC:
In the normal game, where you have to blow up 30 enemies, you're basically dealing with four different types of enemies -- two that look like tie-fighters and move in a diagonal "X", two that spin and fire at you, three that descend and attack and one that just flies by before being chased by one of your allies.

The easiest ones to get points on are the two that move diagonally down the screen, as they don't fire at you. Shoot a second or two ahead of them and you'll score a kill.

If you get hit by the two that spin and fire, try to move out of the way by pulling all the way into a corner until your shields come back. Go after them when your shields are restored.

The three that descend upon you are the most difficult, as you probably won't even get credit for all three (you don't get credit if you cause the ship to go into a spin, and I don't know why. This appears to be a glitch). But you should be able to shoot them twice a piece and get rid of them. Employ a similar strategy if possible to the two that spin and fire at you.

The one that flies by is difficult. You really have to anticipate it going to be there. Timing is everything.

Once you get to 20 kills, you face off against a huge ship. Anyone who's played the old Star Wars video game from 1983 should have a basic strategy down -- fire at the silver missiles with the orange tails first (Make sure you blow them all up. There will usually be three or four total every time the ship appears and goes across the screen), then go after the front of the ship and fire to reduce its shields. This takes some time and is basically nickel and diming the ship to death but it does work. I beat this my third time playing, so I can attest that this CAN be done. Good luck, space jockeys!

Impressive work.

You've done an excellent job coding this game. Most people don't know what's behind the scenes. I really like the mouse movement, and gaming area. But there are too many flaws.

It appears your graphical skills lack a bit, but this is common with programmers, since they specialize on one side. You should make the graphics a bit "thinner", so they won't fill the whole screen with their radial gradients. Also, I can't keep up with the enemy, they seem to fly so much faster than me!

Anyway, I think this game has a great interactivity and potential. You should polish this game a bit more, and when you've got the graphics under your belt, you'd have an excellent game going there.

flight shooter with cheesy characters. ;p

The oopening cut scene impressed me, but i've seen better. I loved the cheesy movements of the characters. I also like the way the paralax effect that you get when you move the cursor, but the response of your clicks were a little delayed and it flet like you were button bashing.

It's ok though...

The only problem is the control. Even though you've reduced the number of enemies, it's still not easy to control the flying ship. Nice try though.
Cheers!

not really that good

On the first level, you have to be frickin psycic to destroy 20 enemies before they hit you, and the boss you can never kill. Your hull give out way too easy. And the graphics were pretty bad. Make the game a little easier and fix the graphics.
