=======NEW UPDATE (Oct 6, 2005)========
Just over two years later, I decided to take a half an hour and make a few tweaks to the game. I dropped 400 kb off of it, fixed a significant boss bug, and made some graphical improvements. Few people will ever see the changes, but I'm happy they're there.
=======NEW UPDATE (Oct 2, 2003)========
Finally, a new version that answers to the three main suggestions I've been receiving: easier, less lag, and a boss meter. Thanks a bunch to the beta tester of this modified version, luck_of_the_irish. He has reported that this new version is significantly smoother, so I hope everyone has a lot of fun with it. Please wait patiently while the preloader loads.

Thanks to everyone who voted generously and made me today's daily feature. The high scores list has yet to be written. Copy down your score and verification code and post them in the thread:

Thanks especially to my voice actors and actresses - Francine (LovelyArtGirl@aol.com), Tazuki Fearon, TESM, and The_Super_Flash_Bros).

This has been my only Flash project since early March, so there's a lot of work apparent, and I hope it pays off. I haven't seen any space shooters this complex around Newgrounds, so I'm hoping for Daily Feature with this one.
Thanks to everyone who supported me along the way, particulary my voice actors and actresses, and beta testers.
Information regarding the game itself is in the preloader. Happy shooting ;)
Preloader's fixed now. Sorry bout that :$

but i cant stop doing it

would love to see the full version of this game its got some of the most original ideas ive ever seen...i would easily pay quite alot for this game its FREAKING AWESOME 10/10 :)

Nice game

I loved the gameplay, storyline, and everything in general. Nice concept and execution. 10/10, 5.5


Although the game itself has the potential to be fun, i found it hard to enjoy myself while focusing on the hard gaming keys. They are way to difficult and spread out. The controls to aim are on one side of the keyboard, the controls to move are on the other, then between aiming and dodging countless enemy attacks you've got to make time to actually fire. And If you've managed to make it that far you'll be sad to realize that it takes you more than one shot to destroy an enemy. The only thing a gamer has going for him is the high drop rate that helps the player stay alive.

entertaining game

That was an entertaining game kinda big file though maybe you can compress it just abit, other then that i liked it so keep up the good work

Slight compressing would be nice

Fun game here
