A 6 level classic vertical-scrolling shooter. Battle the robot army to save mankind. You are the Sky Captain and our last stand against the enemy so suit up and get your plane fired up.

I hope you like the game guys... Your feedback is welcome! Have fun!



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Pretty enough, but unfulfilling

Overall the graphics are nice. There's very little clipping. The controls are very responsive. The hit detection is fairly spot on.

The sound and music is somewhat dull. The "bomb" is rather boring in that it's a simple "press a key to clear the screen" attack rather than something strategic. The enemy shots are almost impossible to see against the background and beyond impossible when the graphics clip. The grading system at the end is a nice touch... right up until you included a rating for "accuracy", which goes against almost everything a vertical scrolling shooter stands for (blasting out as many shots as you possibly can).

I'd consider a bigger variety of planes to pick from with different weapons and defenses to shake things up. Like one with shields, or one that deploys aerial mines, or one that fires very slowly but each shot has a sustained effect that does splash damage.

thanks for your feedback LordKnightcon. I might remove the accuracy, as you suggested
