After months of coding, design, crappy illustrating and sponsor searching, I'm glad to finally present to you my latest game; Spectrum Wings! It's funny because at first it was supposed to be just an experiment at a space shooter but as I kept adding stuff, it grew into a full blown project. I'd say it was worth it in the end, even though I really could have used an illustrator for the enemies and bosses. Anyway, I hope you have as much fun playing the game as I had making it! =)

In Spectrum Wings, you play the role of your galaxy's best pilot whose goal is to destroy the ultimate weapon of the evil Xenuvian empire before they can use it. An interesting feature of this weapon is that during its charging phase, which luckily takes just enough time for you to reach it before it's too late, all light reflected on a solid surface in the galaxy appears totally desaturated to the naked eye.

You can control the ship with either the mouse (which I greatly recommend) or the keyboard. Scores can be saved online and your progress is automatically saved at the end of each level.

Hard and fun

Fairly good game, enjoyable, with the difficulty level scaled to a player who knows how to manage money.
It took me 3-4 attempts to get it right.
Always get the blue 'W' upgrade after the miniboss.
Keep you acc as high as possible for the first 2 levels, don't buy anything after lvl1, full firepower after lvl2. If you go for firerate your accuracy will go down and you'll get less cash later on. After lvl3 - firerate lvl1, then sell it after lvl4 and buy full firerate. max the armor and drone( I prefer spreader and autoaim) with what you have left.

Mouse+Space is vastly superior to arrows.

btw, the two last Bosses (not minibosses) are way too easy. 'Scorpion' ( I think) - you need to fly in the right spot with drone and the boss dies almost instantly. The last one - you don't even have to move if you have about 20%health left.

awesome game

amazingly fun with great graphics


nice game, it looks like a MSX game call nemesis, one of the best games ever! This one is close to that !


I loved this game up until about level 3. At that point the amount of money I was awarded was completely unfair, it actually seemed to be LESS money as I shot MORE enemies, made no sense at all. By level 6 it was just frustrating and I couldn't play anymore. The boss has no safe spot, so unless you have full health, which you can't possibly, you can't win. Make the game somewhat playable and it'll be worth a play.


I really liked the game, it was pretty fun.
