Simple controls, cool premise, extremely fun game, complementary music, classic designs, and intense gameplay. Excellent work! Your products are always high quality! I would LOVE a survival mode as this is the type of game to have one with all the enemies and shooting.

Too fucking hard. I was overwhelmed by enemies by the 11th or 12th wave, even with my upgrades. Make this game easier.

nice game as don´t escape 3 prequel tho I would appriciate a different ending for the hardcore mode. it´s actually pretty easy. just rush rafinery main cannon. then sentries and max rocket launcher before wave 20.

An excellent game (and prequel to Don't Escape 3 heh). Brilliant retro-esque graphics and score.

To those that are STILL having trouble with the game on Hardcore, invest your crystals in Refinery upgrades. Sure it might be difficult without early cannon upgrades, but try your best to maneuver around enemy fire. After that, get Hull Nanites (Did you know this also helps recover your vessel's HP too?), and focus on getting Compressed Shotgun upgrades. This will help you heaps when dealing with tougher insects.

this is the prelude of Don't Escape 3?

This game is so good
