//HALO GALAXIES 2 OUT NOW! http://www.newgrounds.com /portal/view/543609

Now I suppose your all going to rant how I have posted this game twice. I took on board your comments and made the game better and I didn't know you could just overwrite and old projects, so I made a new one. Your probably wondering what is improved... well:
- New and improved graphics.
- 8 different ships to play as.*
- New boss (scarab).
- Call in help from a friendly hornet or pelican.*
- Different medal powers.

*given from a medal whilst fighting.

I think I can see why you didnt enjoy the first game and it was because the whole medal system was really unclear (aswell as the appauling graphics). So in the 'How to Play' section I have tried my hardest to explain it. If you are still confused about the medal system look here:

Medals which are obtained are desposited into the top left hand corner box. They can be activated by clicking on them during anytime of your fight. However timing is crucial to surviving... Also knowing what each one does and how to unlock them helps. Some are explained in game.

You may find it easy at the start of the game but once you get going, you'll find it lots more challenging and using medals at the correct time, will likely save your life. The first few waves are warm-ups.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy the classic gameplay and the new features of V1.5.
Thanks and enjoy. (please do not comment if you're not to be constructive).

Its alright

the game was ok, but hotkeys or something should be used, also it was fun with the medals etc. but more should be added. Ok game needs improvement 5/10

Not really for me..

im not hating on the game. but personally i ddint find it as something id enjoy.


I am a big fan of side scrollers, but i have to agree that the size ratio or just the playing field needs to be addressed...The medal system is awesome but instead of clicking them u should put in hot keys or something...it was kinda wierd to have to click on them.. Anyways a great game overall.

I more or less enjoyed this.

This game was basically fun and kept me entertained for a few minutes. I only have a couple of minor tips which could improve your next update of this. Firstly, you need to tweak the area on the scarab beam a bit because it hits you no matter where you are and an enemy attack you can't avoid is terribly frustrating. second, you should add mouse over medal descriptions on the post-game carnage screen that tell briefly how the medal is earned. Those are the only ways I could see this being closer to perfect.

Good concept

The game is cool, but I would feel better about it if the flying area was a bit larger.
