Shooting: Ctrl or space bar
Moving: Arrow keys
Quality: 'Q' key

Alert! Due to keyboards being weird, holding space causes you to not be able to move diagonally. Thus, the Rocketslap management would reccomend using the Ctrl key to shoot instead of the space bar.

This is an arcade-style shoot-em'-up where you fight against the high score table. Compete with your friends, the scoreboard is connected with facebook. Hope you all like it! If you die, you can control your head with the arrow keys, which is pretty rad.

This game marks our first game under the Rocketslap Entertainment label.

Loved it

At first, I was worried because all the reviews below were bad. That was before i played the game. Now i realise that this is awesome! Loved the animation, the design, the art.... the only thing keeping it from being a 10 is that it is pretty difficult, and the power ups (I thought I may have seen one) need to be more frequent, and there needs to be a menu and stuff. If there wen't power ups, stash 'em in there for another game if you decide to make one. Please do. I loved this!

it was ok, for a five year old. the artwork is again ok, for a five year old. the controls are laggy and sometimes you have to press the button twice to make it work. the gameplay is one of the oldest, ever. the boss doesnt have an attack routine which makes it completely stupid, and finally no story line at all. and no controlling your dead head does not make up for anything. im giving 2/10 which i think is ok, for a five year old.

There are several things to work on

There are several things to work on

Obstacle detection was extremely frustrating

Re-spawned into enemy fire over and over, especially on boss

Power-ups left the screen too fast, they should scroll or drop more slowly.

No story

First level boss is way too powerful. Learning curve was vertical.

No control options

The game dumped me into advertising screen when I lost all lives

You are abusing people that are reviewing your game? You show no class by attacking players. This game had a chance at being memorable. However, you lose any respect by fighting stupid with stupid.
