My 4th Flash game. Drone Wars is a small game idea I had 5 years ago, but never finished. I originally drew the ships as pixel sprites. But with Flash I vectorized everything and it all took about 3 months part-time, which is the longest and most complicated Flash game I've made so far.

This is a nice and spacy game, makes me think of an old Galaxy Conquest game I used to play back in the day. The click and action controls are easy, and the interface is filled with features that are simple to grasp. I like the way the surrounding planets are hidden in a shrouded darkness, though the background could definately have been a bit more spacelike. Nevertheless, it's a ton of fun. Keep it going!



love it

Meh ups and Downs could use some work

If your gonna make a knock off starcraft at least keep the auto scroll in there too...that was probably the most annoying part about it otherwise a solid C+ B- game unless bored which at that point will automatically get thrown into the classics folder to be played again and again
