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.

retro goodness

the game has a 50's sci fi feel whith the metalic black and white. game is fun and challengeing. the only suggestion i have is an explaination on weapon types, other than just pictures

THis game is awesome!!!!

This game is soo much fun i got to lv 30 and got stuck cause i didnt buy a good back fire gun. The worst part is i stayied there for like 5 mins shooting and i didnt know if he was almost dead i suggest add a boss heatlh bar or something. This is a great game make a sequel to it with more lvs and upgrades!

kinda like "asteroids" but a million times better!

This is by far the best game I've played on NG. Multiple levels, LOTS of weapons, u get rewarded for killin stuff... it's awesome! The only thing that could make it better is if u could switch btween your weapons during play. but gr8 nonetheless!!! w00t!

A fantastic rendition of a classic genre

This is an amazing game. The amount of attention to detail in here is not something you see coming through the portal every day.

You've taken the genre of the space shooter (a la Galaga) and added most of the modern features gamers are now used to: weapon upgrades, bosses, save feature, a store, and even (the defining feature for me) a story mode!

The name of the game obviously comes from the art style choice. The result is a bit bizarre (in a good way!) and manages to convey the feeling of retrogaming pretty well. All enemies have their own behavior and some force you to think a little ahead when buying weapons.

Sound is a little repetitive, but this goes well with the game style. I would have also made the mouse button an alternative fire button - freeing up the keyboard for movement (some keyboards, like mine, have a hardware limitation on how many keys you can press at once). Minor things really... I have to look far to find any issue with this submission!

Verdict, two very enthusiastic thumbs up, and a 5 from me!
