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!

fun game. a lot of shmups that ive played have one point of hitbox on the ship instead of the whole or majority of the ship, at first i thought the circle in the middle was the hit box but boy was i wrong. another thing is maybe im just dumb but i didnt realize i could change the direction of my cannons until the last levels and last but not least i beat the game well before reaching level 20. just my experience take it for what its worth.

Repetitive but can be fun as well. Not exactly a fan of having to grind some levels 3-5 times to be able to stand a chance on the next level though.

The game is alright, but the difficulty curve was pretty harsh on the first level of world 3. I also think enemy placement could've been made more fair to compensate for having the whole ship as a hitbox, rather than the center circle. There are a few situations with unavoidable damage, even with equipment that matches the world's difficulty.

The game itself seems like it would be fun, though a bit repetitive. I played a few levels, but I seem to be having a problem with the control not responding as they should. My ship sometimes doesn't move at all for several seconds, and other times it overshoots a direction when I just tapped the key. It's prevented me from passing even just level 1 several times. I finally managed to get it, though I had to miss many enemies because of the issue. I completed level 2 as well, but I think that's where I'll stop. Even replaying those levels and trying to upgrade my ship so this movement issue is less destructive isn't doing much. I still end up running directly into bullets and enemies.

It's okay, but the ship starts out way too slow even with the speed upgrades. Also there's like no grazing at all so there are parts that are impossible to dodge. Not bad though, I was playing with an arcade stick and it was fun, great music too.
