In the far future, earth was destroyed by an asteroid. It is up to you and the last spaceship to colonize a planet by surviving 15 days of alien attacks until the planet is terraformed.

Upgrade your weapons and hull, after every wave and survive as long as you can until the planet you have chosen is terraformed and you win the game.

Spend only an essential amount of money for your upgrades and don't let your biodomes get destroyed.

Be the first one, who stays at the first place on the highscore.

GREAT game man, congratulations! Your other games are also very cool, you are doing a great job here! Your idea here is simple yet very entertaining.

On the formal aspects: the sound is good, but I think you could improve it to match the pace of the game. For example, at the end of every level make it the hardest part, with more aliens showing up and put a faster, more intense sound. I think this could be cool, if you find suitable to your idea (since, you know, the aliens are trying to kill the dudes; they should get more and more violent as the night goes on and humans are able to defend themselves).

On the graphic part: very cool! Gives the game kind of a retro look but way better. I think that the terraforming proccess should show. You know, the base should get larger, you could make some changes in the scenario as the game goes on.

The one big problem you got here: balancing. The challenge is too big for the beginer, it makes people uninterested very fast (unless they are lucky enough to get the strategy at a first try). I consider myself a pretty good gamer and yet I had to start this about 15 times over to get a good grip on the strategy needed. The casual player usually doesn't have this kind of patience and time. You should begin the tutorial with some stratery guide lines, sinc people will certainly try to upgrade power first.

I hope you find this useful somehow. Congratulations again, this is a very solid work!

Hey, thanks for your detailed review.

Great ideas with the changing music and graphical changes of the mainbase. I thought at this too and already have 3 versions of the night music, but due to the big filesize i didn't want to use them. I already used a changing background as you may notice, but also due to the filesize I didn't want to put some new graphics inside the project. But if there will be a sequel or other project with changing environments, I'll definately use some more items.

The balancing seems to be a great problem. When producing the game, the most playtesters said that it is very easy :D and I didn't change the difficulty cause of this. Sadly it will took to much time to change the difficulty now, but I'll add a link to a video with 1 possible way to beat the game as a strategy guide in the next update.

Thanks again.

Interesting, but the tutorial is painful to go through. You should add a function where the player could be able to click or press a button to move the windows along more quickly.

satyre responds:

Tutorial is skipable by key pressing now.
