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. for more information.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

great game love the design and the music as well but you should have put in some sort of cross hair for the ship sometimes i don't even know where the gun is aiming

ok. i hate shoot-em-ups.

that said, this game was done very well. full 5 stars for clean pixel art, no bugs, good scaling of upgrades, and general game balance. and the best part of this game: the plot twist. awesome. you did alot with the limited amount of plot you used here, and ended things with a very thought provoking ending.

your story-telling talents are so good, my first thought was wondering if you might have made any games with heavier storytelling. if you haven't, please do. twitchy games are ok, but my favorites are more intelligent genres. looking forward you seeing if you do empire builders, or turn based games, too.

People are unusually harsh with a 48 hour shooter. I found it nailed all the essentials, lots to shoot and I never lost control of the spaceship from lag, ever. IMO one of the smoothest shooter games I've played. I already figured out a lot of the secret stuff before I heard anything, the story already made me wanna try and get through without killing anything. Can't wait to see what that holds in store for me.

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.

Nice story.
