Just finished the game on normal. Super fun. Great game. Could spice up the victory party, maybe have all the allied ships take turns moving across the screen from the first level to the final. Other than that a great game.

Very basic and well balanced level up / upgrade system
Additional units that are actually helpful and powerful
Good to great music score
Good story that had a big Homeworld/Homeworld 2 feel to it
You get 5 stars for getting me to like a keyboard based arcade and for not giving me anything to complain about from start to finish.

Thank you for the great game!

Overall, a very fun, imaginative,well designed, involving little shooter. Impossible to get bored. I have some minor issues with MY hardware and connection, that result in freezes and jumps in gameplay which are screwing me up big time, but that casts no aspersions on the game's design.


Awesome graphics, enemy design, bosses, and power ups! Space shooters rock!


why is it that whenever i press a button the pause menu comes? so irritating and for that reason i wont play this game
