l cant even kill the first miniboss the giant robot no matter where my mouse is i still get hit
make sure it's not held down when you move off to the side.
Ican never beat it but that doesn't stop me from playin, one of my fav shootin games on newgrounds thnx 4 makin it.
Thanks. I appreciate it. If you're desperate to beat it and if your mouse has a special software installed for it (like my MS Wireless Optical Mouse 2.0) you can set one of your buttons to double click and get two hits for every one click.

It was kind of cool how you added the cutscenes and such into this to give it that cinematic effect. Challenging game and pretty fun to play around with.
As is a flaw in most games, detection wasn't that good. You couldn't hit the entire body of an enemy, you had to hit them in certain spots, which was really annoying. Also, increase the framerate a bit to make things smoother.
Thanks for the response. As you can see, the framerate in many of my future Flash movies have been increased for smooth animation. As for hit detection, of course you can only hit enemies in a weak spot. I will however let you hit the enemy everywhere in future installments and that some damage zones will cause much more damage than others.

Ive managed to beat the second boss while having 70% of my orginal shields, and ive managed to beat this game, heres a tip, move your mouse to where the green arrow is and DONT click, as for the final boss, take out his guns first because they do almost exactly 5 of those enemy ships damage x2
Thanks for giving the tips. You're better at it than I am. I can beat it with a sliver of life left.
Not even fair.
This game was ok, and I can appreciate that it seemed a lot better when it came out. But I have a question...why does it need to have two bosses? The first boss does so much damage that by the time you reach the second boss, you are basically guaranteed to lose. That boss just wasn't necessary, considering how hard it is to beat the first one.
I've always liked the idea of a miniboss before the final boss. I do regret giving the miniboss so much life. Also, the game was much easier in 2000 because this game was made in Flash 4 and when Flash 5+ and the respective players came out, there was a bug that made the game run much faster. If you want a way to beat it, see if you can set one of your mouse buttons to double click, that way you can do double the damage when you click bad guys. Also you might be pissed to know there's a second miniboss after the enemy mothership though it's much easier to beat.
