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

OMFG i had 99% on hardcore and i lose!!!!!!!!!!!
great game

First off this game was an awesome experience to go through! :3

Second off the ending left me speechless...
