Wow. Just wow.

Still more retro review

This thing stunk in 1982.

Needs LOTS of Work

Hey.

I'm guessing you're just starting out. Nonetheless, here are some tips for you.

=========================
Improve your coding skills.
=========================
- Make the shots come from the top center of the player ship, not the left edge.
- As someone else suggested, add audio.
- On the instructions page, make the black area cover the entire stage, so there is no white remaining. Also, the bottom half of the words, "You have a 60 seconds!" is cut off.
- Tab and P keys don't seem to work.
- When you kill something, make the green puff disappear after a while.
- Make it so your player ship can't move off the screen.
- On the game over screen, when I move my mouse over the OK button, I'm getting the text-input I-beam cursor. Please change this so that it either stays as the mouse pointer, or changes to the hand cursor

=========================
Improve your game design skills
=========================
- Use a different font other than Times New Roman (or whatever this standard-looking, word processor font you're using).
- Stop putting "retro" in front of everything. "Retro 'A' key" just sounds silly. Which bring up another point: Why must we press "A" key to continue, anyway? What's so special about the "A" key?
- When restarting the game, cut all the extra scenes, and just get the player back into the game. - Remove the "a" from the phrase: it should say, "You have 60 seconds!".
- Why are the red and green aliens shooting upwards?

Lots of work ahead of you, but keep at it. (-:

I retro love it!

Retro Review!

I believe the player ship is a tad too big, although the health bar is a step up from the original Invaders. The lack of sound effects and the lack of BGM was quite disappointing.
