Classic top-down shooter with stat building and parts customization!
Multiple planets to see, weapons to collect, and big bosses to fight.
High scores and Medals available!

In the works since July 2010, the top-down shooter genre has been something I've always wanted to cover. Big thanks to Hyptosis and Kelwyshade for their art and music, otherwise I'd still be stuck with an unpolished engine. I think we ended up with a solid product, hope you enjoy!

Eh...

You call it classic, i call it unoriginal.



Ugh..?

I voted a four on this game and I take it back, it deserves a two. I love Hyptosis's artwork and I admit the artwork in this game is awesome due to Hyptosis's skills, but the gameplay itself is the only flaw. The controls are slow, the game is very repetitive and in my opinion... it needs a storyline! What are you exactly? I know that you have to save Helious Minor from unwanted presence (S.H.M.U.P.) but that's the only thing I know about the game. I love a good storyline and good character dialog.. but there isn't any at all. I don't know what the hell I am, am I an alien? A human? A robot? Anyway, if they fix the controls and make some adjustments with the storyline, as in actually adding one, then I will be happy.



dick move, man...

spawning enemies below me liek that. and what's wrose, you have them fly towards my ship no matter where I am. that is very annoying and makes me not want to replay this game.



It's not bad, but too fast bg movement.

The fast background movement really stressed me out. Other than that, it's a classic shmup with nothing new or special, except really great graphics and good music. Although the music seems to be short, so it gets tiresome after a while as well.

Another problem was that the second level seemed the same to me, so I just killed myself.



Good shoot'em'up...but

The game lacks a few important things and some other stuff.

First of all, the game is too hard! Not everyone is a hardcore gamer that can finish ikaruga blindfolded with one hand. Difficultsettings needed!

Then the levelups are too far apart, specially if you die on a level and only receive 1/3 of what you collected, then it take ages to level up. And while we're on that; when the xp bar fills up, it takes too long....either skip or quickfill.

With all that is happening on the screen, it's sometimes too hard to see what's a gem and what's a bullet, if they're not both hidden in an explosion.

And finally, more variety of weapons, bombs for example.
5/10
3/5
