An epic space battle in an effort to defend your home colonies from an onslaught of starships.

Created in under 48 hours for Ludum Dare 25. http://www.ludumdare.com for more information.


I can't figure out what the fuckin controls are so my ship gets destroyed in the first 8 seconds of storymode wtf.

This game just drove me nuts! It wasn't so much that it was hard, it's that I couldn't tell when I was winning a medal! Okay, not to make this personal, but I stayed to play this game while my mom was putting Christmas stuff away and she went insane because I wasn't helping! I have to give you credit for making an addictive game. I managed to get far as beating the first part of story mode.

I KNEW I got a medal for surviving in Chaos Mode for over a minute and then nothing happened. I guess it'll show up eventually. I liked the different designs for all the enemies. It's amazing how this just goes on forever. You are certainly creative.

Excellent. One of the best games I've seen on here in a long time. Even more impressed that you made it in such a short period of time. I'd love to see what you could pull off given more time.

People find this review helpful!

I liked the game, as has already been said. It has good visuals (kinda retro) good game play and smooth controls. I also liked that twist at the end of story mode (I'm not gonna spoil it) And to think that it was all done in under 48 hours... it's pretty good.

Augh! My hitbox... it hurts so much...

Going through the story I felt a bit like I was only winning due to my superpowered ship, felt a bit of a lack of skill requirement... and then the shrapnel and secret modes happened, and I have nothing to blame for my rage other than my inability to not fly into deadly things. ;_;

Very well made. Nice visuals and great gameplay. Music's not bad either.

All the stars from me.
