Ships use shot impulse to move.
Orchre and Sky:
Use 'Left' (←/A) to turn left (shoots right gun),
Use 'Right' (→/D) to turn left (shoots right gun),
Use 'Forward' (↑/W) to fly forward (shoots both guns);
Grass (gren ship) automatically turns to mouse position,
Follow mode: turns to mouse,
Attack mode: turns against mouse,
Use 'Switch' (Space or RMB) to choose mode.

Number keys changes shot impulse, which determines ship acceleration and bullet speed. Normal impulse is 1.

Restart buttom is in bottom right corner.

Description will be writen later.

Okay, I got no problem with challenging control schemes. Maverick is a perfect example. But introduce things one at a time! You got three difficult gimmicks: shooting to move, shooting backwards, and controlling multiple units at once. Introduce them one after another, not all at once! And maybe have something happen if you win.

Also, it took me so long to figure out that the numbers that appear when you're hit are your remaining health, not how much damage something dealt.

And why is it called Quadratic Wars?

The shape-based warefare is a pretty cool idea, graphics simplistic but good, controls slick, overall it's a fun game! Keep it going!


Voici un jeu qui aurait pu être sympathique mais qui souffre d'une jouabilité tellement lourde que cela en devient fort ennuyeux... C'est TRÈS lent et tout plaisir est annihilé au bout de quelques dizaines de secondes. Cependant l'esprit global du jeu (graphismes et sound design) sont plutôt réussi.

Not to shabby, But still needs a bit of tweaking.
Prferably, Music would be decent for it. Next, Work the Shot Impulse a bit better, or just make it into a Powerup you can gain over time, rather then making it a natural hotkey thing.
Thanks so much~

Well, this game looks promising... It has pretty good music, and the controls seems quite good. And the graphics are simple albeit charming...

I think my only problem with this game is that there isn't a single player option, and when you don't have friends (like me xD) that's a bit of a problem.

All in all, a pretty good game - though it's lacking in some areas. Add a single player mode, with either targets or moving enemy AI, and it'll be a lot better. :)
