Pretty great game, i reallyliked it.


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

It has a good plot for the game but your gameplay and the mechanics are nothing new......overall fun way to kill time

Alot of work put into this game, so it's a shame that it's just small details that make it annoying. As mentioned before, pop-up chat boxes. You might have a great storyline (I wouldn't know), but I just got to the point of slamming the spacebar as fast as possible trying to get rid of them.
The mouse cursor that won't go away even when I'm not using the special ability (because frankly they're crap).
Having flying enemies hiding behind a building, even though they're shooting above it. They must be hiding behind it, cos I have to blow up the building before I can shoot them.
The upgrading is bizarre, in that the money to trade-in ratio is always the same (can't say I've ever seen this approach before). Is it a glitch? Not sure.
I really like the game (if that wasn't clear), but if I ever meet Mary Newell, I'm going to kick her in the nuts.

Ya know, im not an expert of gamedesing or anything, but, chatboxes popping up in the middle of a fight (with 10+enemies shooting stuff at you) blocking half your view and wanting you to read it? come on man...

The fact that its pretty apm intensive was cool, not too often these days =), however, i would love to be able to change the controls, just as an option.

well, have fun with your next few games =)

You should have called this game "Battle of new Tyrian"

the game should have been more engaging if the gameplay was faster and more fluid (it slows down when there are more than one ore two enemies)

and i really didn't like the soundtrack, it isn't catchy enough

anyway all those things can surely be improved in future works
