Aliens have invaded, again.
Seems like this happens every other Tuesday, but it's a dogs life in the army. Up and at-em soldiers, let's wipe this infestation and be home in time for tea!
Lead Sarge and his faithful platoon on their quest to repel the alien invaders!

5 stars, no complain, hell of a job.

This is good fun to be had but it needs to be a lot harder so I can play longer. I never died and never upgraded my health either. If the game were harder I could come back with strategy to win. Strategy is minimally necessary here. I think if you make the aliens a little slower, tripled their health, and tone down the power of the intensity laser( or make it so devastating that its virtually unusable :) ), I would then be looking at a challenge. BTW...I noticed your author comment below me and the spacebar is a game maker. I don't think I would have continued playing without it.

I like it! it's a good game, just don't like the way the character shoots..

FightClub69 responds:

I got a lot of complaints about the characters shooting automatically in Working Stiffs, so this time I tried something different. I'm still getting some complaints (not as many) so obviously I haven't nailed the 'ultimate mouse control system' yet :) I'll keep working on it!
BTW: do you use the Space bar to hold position at all? Just curious.

Pretty darn good. will return to play and upgrade more
