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

remember, both Alex and Bryan created this game, it was a split project!

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!

-.-....

yeh it sucked in my way cuz the readme took me to a diffrent website called flashstlye and i couldent find it on there so i gave up on it and on the downloadable
button it took me to the same website and i couldent find anything saying how to play or download here. so yea thats partly why my scores low.

graphics are alright, could be better.
sounds ok, good for space fighting
gameplay=horrible it was to hard even on easy and i kept dieing because the ships came out of no where with no warning, they moved everywhere they possible could, and i couldent even have rapid fire. so yea. needs lots of improving. all in all 4/10

It may be because I sucked at this game, but...

I didn't like it too much, either it wasn't my style, or I just wasn't good at it, but I had to vote 3. I give you 6 stars because the graphics and gameplay were pretty good, but other than that, I would've had to give you 4 stars.

Pretty nice for a shooting game

it would be more fun if you could just control your jet because you just cotrol the shooting.

Amusing, but in the long-term not too interesting.

I was quite amused for a while until it became just sitting in your starship blasting mindlessly. Overall it had a good score but it just didn't have the same appeal as some shoot 'em ups have. But do not be discouraged! A sequel would be an awesome idea. Just add some more enemies, add some more movement to your ship. I hated just sitting there shooting brainlessly.

P.S. I love the special effects. Keep it up!

This seemed to come off alot like a simpler version of the other title you two have released. It was alright the graphics seemed quite simple and the sound seemed to have been toned down abit. I would just like to again congratulate you guys on creating such a fun and challenging shooter for the public.
