An excellent top down shooter, reminds me of their golden age. Everything is almost perfect and I also saw that you went through and patched the game after some exploits being made, as stated on description. There is very few to patch up, from my POV:
1- Weapon mechanic could be improved by powerup picking instead of auto upgrade;
2- Provide an advantage of some kind to non-auto firing.
3- Different weapon pickups, apart from main cannon upgrades, could be fun. Most of the genre has this as a lynchpin because it really bumps replayability to a higher ground.
4- Yes, those last levels are nasty, but even on easy setting? Did it fine but I fear for those who are less nimble than us.
How is level 37 even slightly possible, even on easy mode? 36 is bad enough with that spamming "Core" enemy but in 37 you have that enemy plus a ton of other tough enemies all spamming all at the same time. It's the spam and lag of death.
As for high scores, that's extremely easy to do in this game. All you gotta do is, on any level, kill all the enemies except leave one easy enemy behind, then just keep killing asteroids and sweeping up the diamonds. Just grind it out doing that. Anyone can get the high score doing exactly that (Simply do it longer than the person before you)
Great Game! But I think there should have a ''crystal counting bar'' on it. Btw, it's pretty well done!
It's a great game. Though in the later waves it gets so heavy that you can't tell which shots are yours and which ones are theirs!
Yes, this would be a good game. I really like the continue feature here, that way less skilled players can still experience the game. The game also seems to have a good bit of balance to it, nothing's really just over-kill.
