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.

Pretty cool, but...

MUCH too difficult. Now, I'm not saying there are too many enemies or that I don't like that they get tougher in later levels. Both of these are great. However, I think you need to either cut the prices of the upgrades in half, or you need to make it so that a player can revisit a previous level. Otherwise, I'm finding this game quite unbeatable.

It also seems very reminiscent of R-Type, from the round canopy of the ship to the spinning action of the Drones.

Good game.

The game looks and sounds very professional. The upgrades are quite interesting, just like the capsule as gameplay element. I definetely would have played it through, if the pretty tough boss in level 6 didn't annoy me that much. Talking about annoying things: The music isn't as good as it can be in games of that type. But what really sets the sound to a lower level isnt the choice of the soundtrack but the way too loud soundeffects. They really take away a lot from the heavy bass songs.

if there are upgrades in any type of game preferable zombie games then the game would get an automatic 10/10and 5/5 from me.

good job

interactive, although the explanation of equipment is a little slim. Other than that, I beat it and got rank 5, would've been 2 had I actually equiped what I bought, lol. Either way, keep up the good work(although the last boss was actually rather easy tbh
