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.


Good game, but ridiculously hard in any mode other than the original story mode, even with full upgrades. Also, can someone please tell me how to get the secret ending? I assumed it would have something to do with NOT killing people, but it seems the decoding doesn't even progress unless you kill, and the screen just fills with enemies until you die.

Controls seem very unresponsive and laggy. I found myself often going one direction while pressing another and sometimes had to press two or three times before my ship would alter course.

Music is decent, but gets annoying quickly. Sound effects need work.

I can tell the game might be good, but the story in the beginning just completely turned me off. I played a small chunk of the first level, and with the dumb storyline buggin me and the insanely predictable nature of what the game would become, I just said "nope" and didn't go on. I've played too many games like this, but the storyline really just put me off.

I'm not a fan of the map. I get disoriented when approaching an edge because my ship strays from the center of the screen.

All you're games feels *exactly* the same, and the gameplay isn't different at all. I am sorry. Already finished Diamond Hollow. Graphics are great [as always]. I hope to see some of your work on "For Fate" [although I'd really appreciate if you'll remove the turn-based battles].

Well That's It.
