Finally, after more than a year of development I am proud to present this Nanobeast to fellow newgroundians.

The game is a challenging retro shooter with an interesting upgrade system that involves collecting power-ups. However, when you collect a power-up (P) that does not mean you have upgraded immediately. You get to choose how to use those power-ups to upgrade your general stats:
- speed of your ship (you need 1 power-up)
- power of your weapon (you need 2 power-ups)
- fire rate of your weapon (you need 3 power-ups)
- bombs (you need 4 power-ups)
- lives (you need 5 power-ups)

There are 2 additional weapons to be collected as you play: missiles and side gun.

There are 27 medals to be achieved, go get them!!!

CONTROLS:

Use the arrow keys to move
Press 'A' to shoot left
Press 'D' to shoot right
Press 'S' to activate your current power-up level
Press 'W' to release a bomb

The game is generally very challenging. There are three difficulty settings: normal, hard and insane. There is no easy.

The highscore system multiplies your score depending on which difficulty setting you play and how many medals you have collected.

The game features original 8-bit music written especially for 'Nanobeast' by Christian Erenskjold a.k.a Coffee-Break, a very talented NG musician. Other musicians who also contributed are listed in the credits.

I have been developing and beta testing this game heavily for a long time. Any feedback and ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Extreme Tip!

Dont upgrade speed to max! It will fuck with everything! REALLY! Upgrade to 7, or 6, because when 9 and you want to do an simple dodge, you go up and hit the other bullet. This happens in harder levels.

Extremately nice game, because of the upgrades, secondary weapons, bosses, but what i really liked was music! Just epic!

Errors

For some reason the controls would randomly stick as if I was holding a button down, when I wasn't. This caused me to die quite a few times. I didn't like how the level up system worked. Also I didn't unlock any medals even though I was accoplishing the tasks for them. It was a good game and I like this style of game, but I those glitches really annoyed me.

THIS GAME IS AWESOME!!!!

dude you are the man i cant even get past level three yet!!!!!1 :)



Hmm...it's missing something!

The gameplay is great. The music is great (I love that music in the first chapter). Yet I cannot give this a 10/10. Why, you (and many reviewers) ask? Because there is no save feature whatsoever. If I leave the page, I have to start the entire game over. This only bumped the game by one point, though...
Great game!

Will consider adding a "continue game" feature in the sequel, thank you.
