This was a really fun game here the campaign was nice but in later levels it does drag on but overall this was unique and a fun game here I liked it


I've been playing this game for quite some time now, I just wanted to say thank you for making the game that inspired me to create and explore new horizons. I will never forget it.

Very nice and well made game.

it's a great game the only problems i have is mission three and the endless dropships and also the 100 limit. at least you can make it 150 or 200.

I was very excited once I found out just how refined this game is. My first issue with it was with moving around units through the level... it would do well to be able to send units to places by clicking on the map. Alternatively, i've wanted to move a unit somewghere, i'd click on the map, go there and click too soon, thus the mouse would select a box area and i would deselect the unit i wanted to move.
i kind of got use to it but i still think you should change it. Have shift-left click as a right click function.

i enjoyed the campain up till the part where level 5 turned out to be a total drag.
it's a good level, but there are tiny missteps that can end up in a game over... and then you have to completely start all over again... and the beginning really is boring as hell

a minor detail: i've noticed that if a ship shoots another ship but misses and the bolt passes through a different hostile unit it does nothing... just a suggestion
