The money you get increases as the game gets farther. It doesn't take till level 50 to get something good, you can get a new weapon about every 5 levels early on. So PLAY THE GAME BEFORE SAYING IT SUCKS YOU DON'T GET ENOUGH MONEY!

Wow, back on the front page. Thanks

HINTS! Backshot is a vital weapon for the 3rd boss, so save up! Backshot also makes quick work of thos damn turrets!

Now people are complaining about not being able to move certain diagonal directions.
QUOTED FROM dwn_n_drty: "Let go of space if you want to go in a diagonal direction. Modern keyboards only let three keys to be pressed at a time."

Damn people stop asking for color! It's SUPPOSED TO BE BLACK AND WHITE it gives it style! I MEAN COME ON! DO YOU EVEN THINK IT WOULD LOOK GOOD IN COLOR? It's not a game with the color sucked out. It's a game designed in black and white to look good only in black and white.

Great Game!

I think that this game is great the way it is. I played for a bit, ( I started around 10:30 P.M.) and next thing I knew, It was 12:40P.M!
This game is great(Like I've said before.)
I found no glitches with it, and I love games that you upgrade weapons in.
P.S.(To all of the people who want colour): I think the reason he didn't add colour was becuase it adds the feeling of an old arcade game!(I almost felt like I needed quarters!)
Keep up the great work!
P.S.S(To all who rated low for the type of gameplay) Don't be a douche, if you don't like that kind of game, don't play it, and leave the reviews out of it. You seem like a total a-hole when you put:

"BORING" Score
Date:... 1

I h8 ths kynd of gaim (Stupid typing errors and fails for effect)

P.S.S.S: Loved the game.

It's OK but it's not my type of game

Good, but annoying

Firstly, a big gripe. The enemy ships have a tendency to drift off the side of the screen, making the Destroy levels much harder since you have to kill a certain amount of ships, and it's just not possible when a lot of them are dissapearing at the sides. What is even more annoying is when one of these ships doubles back from the bottom of the screen, hitting your ship and destroying you. the amount of times I have failed a level because a rubbish little A-class fighter has looped up from the bottom of the screen isn't even funny. I know there is the backshot weapon, but in these destroy type levels you don't usually use one as you are more focused on the horde of enemies coming straight for you.

On to more positive things... the selection of weapons on offer here is nice and widely varied, with some good upgrades for each of the weapons. The bosses are tough and taxing, but not overly so. There is a good mixture of different enemy types, and it is good to have a challenge in having loads of them coming at you at once (as long as it doesn't involve the aforementioned problems!)

Loved the style of the game with the black and white visuals and find it incredible that people are complaining about the lack of colour here. In a game called Monochrome. Yeah...

Overall this is a brilliantly realised shooter, with some great gameplay and visuals, that is let down by a couple of niggling flaws.

Game is okay. Nothin great as far as graphics go... really need to make a write up on what the upgrades do. I had no clue what any of them did.
