Arrow Keys - Move / Aim
Z - Shoot
X - Jump
C - Change Weapons
Spacebar - Pause / Open Map

You can also use WASD to move and JKL to shoot/jump/change weapons, however on some browsers/keyboards you may run into issues with too many keys being pressed at once, nothing I can do about that.

If you have a PC Gamepad, I highly recommend using the Joy2Key Software. You can download it: here: http://bit.ly/NCx4h

Saving - Progress through the stage is saved automatically at every major checkpoint. If you have to leave and come back, your progress will still be there!

Bugs - If you do find a bug, please report it to me via PM. Be as descriptive as you can, I can't fix things if I don't know what went wrong!

Sticky Keys Bug - If the keys feel like they're sticking, character keeps running after you let go, please read the third post in this thread: http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1123318
This is a bug with some browsers/systems and there's really nothing I can do to fix it.


Gameplay is okay but...

The graphics are too classic flash looking for me

It's okay..

Music and Story line was great...but the only thing i found that is not great is the art style...it isn't that bad.sorry but i just don't really like the art style...I can see the effort you've put in here...it's not that bad...8/10 4/5 you deserved it.

An Underrated, Perfectly Playable Series.

I'll agree with most of the others on the art style--it doesn't look that great, but then again, can you blame the artist? He just picked what works. The humans look like humans, the ships look like ships, and the dragon...Looks like a dragon. Heh.

The art style aside, the game plays pretty well. The gameplay is almost a bit like Metal Slug and Metroid, and the difficulty certainly fits. The bosses and enemies pose a good changed, and I more often than not had my fair share of troubles. The game is not impossible, but not knowing how to deal with the enemies and bosses will hurt you. I didn't find the gameplay repetitive at all, personally. The music also works well in each level, as does the voice acting, though there are some syncing issues.

This is not a perfect game series. Phete isn't an expert flash artist, but that didn't stop him from making a playable, fun episodic series. I look forward to the rest of the game when it's finished!

Repetitive Gameplay and Crudely Drawn

I was tempted to give this a lower score just because of all the hype, but I opted to try and make my review as independent from other people's views as possible. There is nothing that interesting let alone groundbreaking about this title. The only stand out aspect I can think of is the crisp voice acting, but I would think that that should more be icing upon the story and game-play mechanics, which are in actuality bland and unappealing. I found the art to be its most undesirable feature. I know that graphics don't make a game, but there is a standard, and characters that look like they were drawn in MS Paint do not reach it. I'm not sure why this series has been getting daily feature. I can tell a lot of work was put into it, but to put it bluntly, it's the product that counts, and this is one of repetitive monotony.
