Edit: never underestimate the power of ignorance. An apology to everyone who's played the game so far and found it handled like ass. I've, er, "tweaked" the file a bit for goodness.

Flash 8's required if you don't already have it. I'm assuming graphic-intensity from most of the products I make, so just to be on the safe side don't have too much crunk clogging up your computer when playing along.

Cursor keys move the ship and switch between options. X, C and V toggle your quality, whereas A and Z determine how fast your ship moves. Control is the "OK" function for opening options, and the Space Bar is your friend when it comes to firing lasers.

In a videogame genre where intricate enemy patterns abound and multiple weapons make mincemeat of everything on the screen, this Armor Games-sponsered shoot-em-up relies more on accuracy and points (and a wonky art 'style') for its shits and giggles. As Captain Gray Darius, pilot of the Zig Zuton, you possess an arsenal that would make a footballer laugh and face an opposition that doesn't dare exercise the meaning of the word "attack". Story Mode crowbars a plot into 10 stages of Boydulon-blasting goodness, and Score Attack allows you to rack up the big combos and post your victories online for all to see.

Whichever mode you decide to tackle, you'll only get ahead by aiming well and making every laser count. Scattershot tactics will be your downfall, but if you do kick the big one, take some solace in the fact that a restart - and perhaps a password - is only a button press away.

Who knows, if you get far enough into the story it might be worth your while.

Don't forget to leave some comments and critique behind. You know, just in case the entire game suddenly runs backwards or grinds to a complete halt. I wouldn't like for that to happen.

Very good

Not for everyone, however. Personally, I liked the speed and intensity. It added to the fun, and the speed and intensity is what shooters are all about.

What I think people are doing wrong, is trying to destroy everything. You must target large groups of slow moving enemies, as the fast ones will catch you out.

You need to improve on the sounds, such as enemy destruction, and the graphics of the ship and the enemies. Their simplistic graphics didn't tie in with the beautiful backgrounds.

Overally, not bad. Focus on correcting faults in sound and first layer graphics.

Nice Try

It was a nice attempt to making this game.The graphics are decent but kinda looks like you just through the game together.It does get very repetetive.Your shooting the same thing over and over.Keep trying and you'll get it right.Other than that the story line it was an good game.It had a good story line and ran at a decent speed.

Well done but lacking

I'm not gonna lay into you like everyone else has done.
You have made a good attempt at a game but it is lacking one key elemnt..variety.
Good games have decent coding that makes them run smoothly which you have got, but it is very repetetive.
Keep trying and if you need inspiration contact people on the site ask them what they want to see and try to work the ideas into the submission.
Don't give up on the developing of games hope to see more from you soon

i can't say that the graphics are good for then that would be lying...but the plot is amazingly perfect so if you could make adjustments and make it a bit more interesting and a bit less like asteroids or something like that then i am positive that i can give this game a excellent rating.
