the lag issues that i fced made this game nigh playable. whenever it has too many elements on the screen at one time, the last diection you pressed, the ship will continue to head that direction until either it hits the wall, kills itself, or you mash the directional keys to regain control.
it get boring fast
Gameplay is sub-par, there are many other top down shooters that have better controls and enemy placement, as well as bullet patterns.
The sound design is alright, the music fits well enough, and the blip and boops give the game something of a retro feeling though it seems a bit /too/ simple.
As for the graphics... They're really terrible, you have a nice idea going with the thin lines and sqaures, but the way it mixes together, and the way the bright colours clash against each other makes it not only unpleasant to look at, but it was also stressful on my eyeballs.
Really didn't like the false choice there at the transport level. I shoot them all down, ignoring their cries and then you still force me to rebel? Why give someone the choice if you're just going to railroad them for it?
Like all space-shooter games; this lacks a bit of uniqueness and if anything the only unique factor about it is terrible in my mind. The only thing that is unique to me about this game is that it takes too long to kill an enemy, and most can escape via off screen by the time you go to kill it. Majority of the enemies in the first level got passed me due to this strangeness. I did honestly try to kill them but when my laser cannons fire slow, I move fast, they move fast, and they take two to three hits (while I gotta dodge and hit the next one) - its just too much.
The way to solve this is to either increase damage, or to increase firing speed. Another way is to decrease movement speed / make the game take more time to get from top to bottom.
Over all I'm going to rate the game a bit low because I simply cannot make myself get beyond the first level. It looks like this game has potential - and please do not think this is a rude post - I simply think it could have some work done on it.
