A good old fashioned side scrolling shoot 'em up. It's a bit old and there are a fair few things I'd like to change about it, but I still really like it. Maybe one day I'll do a sequel.

I haven't previously uploaded it so I thought I would for completist sake. Get all my games that I like up on newgrounds.

Why isn't this more popular?

It's too bad this is not popular on this website, as of course Newgrounds does have the most games! The thing I really liked was how everything was presented in such an orderly manner. It was great to see the weapons become more powerful. Everything here had a pretty simple design yet it still managed to be very creative. It was weird to see the anime girl's head at the top of the screen. At a certain point, there are so many shots you have to just not them and keep pressing the fire button.

Everything about this just seems so graceful. I am glad it managed to get the high score it deserved. Another good thing is that you manage to get a lot of oppurtunities to continue the game. Nothing in this seems pixellated and I can tell it came from a talented guy like HappinessSam. I hope you keep making these great games!

They hit you once...

they only have to hit you once and you're dead. a health bar would be nice, people can enjoy the game better.


^^Good Points^^
A very good game. I'm surprised this didn't win a daily award. The graphics were very colorful and very cool. Looks like a real video game to me. The game works very well with a very good interface and great controls. The game was challenging and fun, so overall great job.

^^Needs Improving^^
A great game would have had a better storyline with some type of introduction movie.

cool one

that was a pretty cool and fun shooter style game. some shooter games a little bit unoriginal as there are so many of them, but they are always a lot of fun. changing the options of the controls were pretty good... spacebar and enter work a lot better. the first couple levels were a little simple, but the challenge did increase as this one progressed... nice to see. this one was pretty fun to play.

good job on this one.

Pretty Sweet Shooter.

I saw this game has uploaded elesewhere. Now it will have a sanctuary at NG. I just love the weapons system, the more power ups you collect, the more powerful your shots become. However, if you get hit, you can lose all that you earn, so playing well is the key. The Graphics have this pseudo anime/action cartoon look to it for a homage image to real classic gaming gems like Gunstar Heroes and Star Fox. I must say there are a couple things that keep this game from being perfect. One would be the music. One thing that is great about old school shooters is their brilliant sci-fi score. This one however, does not have that but a constant loop of a New Wave Rock Track that feels unfinished. Then theres the mission acomplished track but thats it. Please work on a beautiful sci-fi musical melody or at least find one. If you make another, please be sure to add a kind of rail gun weapon with an intense rate of fire because that be cool. You should also improve the enemy craft animations so that they look like they are taking damage with each hit.
