Bit strange how the main motive in the game seems to get a highscore, and yet when you end your game the fate of the world is supposedly lost. Is there an ending if you keep playing? If it is a finite game, it feels a bit monotone. Even for highscoring purposes, it takes a long while before it starts getting difficult (when the asteroids kick in), and by then it really gets difficult at once. I like the gameplay overall, but not so much the monotony of the journey. At first I thought it'd be a bit like Space Invaders, with a new foe for each level, but it turns out the same foes repeat over and over, stage after stage, occasionally introducing one new combatant to cycle through in the different stages. I think I'd like either longer stages and more intense battle, or a finite number of fewer stages, each one with its own challenge. It just takes too long to get anywhere, even if it's fun at first, and doesn't feel like a game you'd want to try multiple times to beat your highscore. That's just too time-consuming a task. Anyway, graphics, music, etc were great, gameplay is the part I feel's a bit lacking. Keep it going!

There are a total of 100 levels. Your ship upgrades after you defeat the miniboss on level 49. Getting the best score you can is one of the main objectives, but beating all 100 levels is as well. Thanks for the review!

Nice game, but it's too easy in beginning and very fast difficult rise up. No second chance, if you catch bullet.

larrymcduck responds:

Yeah, the game does get difficult. Use your bombs and missiles carefully and get those weapon upgrades! Thanks for the review!

Fantastic game! I remember the original like it was yesterday and this brought back some great memories. The only thing I can say, is that for some reason I feel like the playable area was wider, giving more room to maneuver. This is especially important for the levels with the purple heat seeking shots. Other than that, great remake!

larrymcduck responds:

The original resolution was 320x200. This resolution is 640x480 (or 320x240 hi res). So there is a bit more playing area than the original. Thanks for the review!

Mediocre at best. It''s not great, it's not bad, it's okay. I hope to see more submissions from you that will improve from this one!

Things I liked: Nice music, nice graphics and simple gameplay, but some weapons are to overpowered.
