Game's Nice, Lacks Info.

It seemed like there was no choice but to shoot the white ships unless you wanted them to kill you. For people who prefer using a certain secondary weapon, that's no good at all.

A lot of these games I see fail to put it some kind of pause button, which would also be convenient, but I won't complain much about not having one.

Putting the instructions on the page rather than in the game, or having a tutorial option would also be good to add in the future.

All that aside, I like it. Fun and challenging.


its pretty cool but it could use upgrades and such, oh and a pause button could be good too

Main weapon speed.

That's my only complaint.

Upgrades might be cool too.

Other than that, ace game here. As usual. Great work!


... But the original game was better. If you could integrate the two, i would make love to you!!


If the turning speed was faster it might get easier, but at least it would give me the time to shoot my enemies before they shoot me.
