As a test flight goes from bad to worse, you have no choice but to escape the planet. Fight your way through waves of enemies as you build up speed, and upgrade your ship using their scrap.

Has the same music as Viking Run. Now that's a good game. This is horrible. 2 Stars for effort.

Visibly needs an update.

Way too short, way too easy. enemies "pop" into the screen, rather than scroll down from the top. the upgrades are uninspired and bland. Why require the player to hold down the fire button if there's no penalty for misses or reward for accuracy? why require the use of the keyboard instead of allowing more precise movement with the mouse. The graphics feel outdated, like something I'd expect in the 90's, only without the retro style.

general dislike

Mediocre. Choppy and outdated, this is the 21st century and were on Newgrounds.com, not the Atari.
