Your ship has been damaged by an asteroid, one more and you're gone for good.
The impact made the controls hazardous and sometimes, they switch.

Controls :
Arrow keys to move.

Try to stay alive as long as you can and collect the coins to help you get a better high score.

If you have any suggestions or ideas, please let me know in the comments.
Also, I'm French so feel free to point them out and i'll correct them.

I hope you'll enjoy it !

Todo :
2 players mod ?

Version 1.1 :
The game is too easy ? Well okay then, the shields doesn't stay forever now. Also, sometimes, both of the controls may change. I had to reset the highscore.

Version 1.0 :
Medals and Scoreboards ! I'm still testing them, so, sorry if it doesn't work properly.
Also added a "Reset" button in case your highscore/medals doesn't work properly.

Version 0.9.1 :
Reworked the "How to play" section.

Version 0.9 :
Added an armor powerup ! It will protect you only one time.
There is an ad at the very beggining of the game now.

Version 0.8.1 :
Added another obstacle : a comet that will quickly cross the screen.
Fixed the collision box for the destroyed spaceship.

Version 0.8 :
New obstacles ! A satellite and a dead spaceship.
Replaced the game music.
Obstacles spawns every 0.4 seconds instead of every 0.3.

Version 0.7.2 :
Musics ! Wow !
Also added some details to make the game look prettier.

Version 0.7.1 :
Now you can see witch controls are going to be switched.
Added an effect on the screen when the player die.

Version 0.7 :
Added an alarm so you can know when the controls will change.
Fixed the time when controls are changing (it was supposed to be random but controls changed every X seconds where X was fixed between 5 and 10).
The controls switch between 6 and 10 seconds rather than 5 and 10 seconds.
Added a "How to play" menu.

Version 0.6 :
First version posted on Newgrounds.

This game was challenging and fun. The medal "10" hasn't unlocked for me but all the other medals work and i got them all. it said on the screen i unlocked the medal "10" but it on my account its not there and when i click under the game screen it says its still locked for me.

Ty for your feedback, it's weird that this medal didn't worked. You should try to click on the "reset" bouton and redo the medal, it should work properly again. I'll have a look at this.

A pretty fun arcade game, easy to replay and get into, though for any game that doesn't have an end, it feels like highscores are a necessary incentive for you to really keep going, and try again and again. Also seems like that medal isn't working yet..? Overall it looks good, and I like that battle music!

Hi,

I'm really glad you're enjoying my game ! I'm actually working on adding a shield (and I'm having some troubles for some reason EDIT : I JUST FIGURED OUT !) and some medals, the one you see here was a test, I should delete it for now. I'm also planning to add an highscore board on Newgrounds, so it'll hopefully keep people playing longer to the game.

Please add Mouse for controls? I also suggest that there are a sign or symbol that would indicate that our controls would be reversed, so that players are not being hosed during the middle of playing. It's quite irritating.

For the design, you could consider furthering the design: adding a BG to the Game over screen, and including a variety of different obstacles other than those space rocks. There could be meteorites, satellites, and many other ideas that the player must dodge. The possibilities are endless.

Harksa responds:

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback. I don't think I can add the mouse for controls, not that I can't for the basic control, but I really don't know how I will be able to switch them. I think it would be way more irritating since you'll move faster and will collide easily with an obstacle.

A warning is something that I'll totally be working on. Also yeah, I didn't even thought about including other obstacles. It's a great idea ! Thanks !

The controls switching is unpredictable and infuriating.


Harksa responds:

Hi,

thank you for your feedback. I'll work on making the switching more predictable.

I wish the controls didn't randomly invert.


Harksa responds:

Well it is actually part of the gameplay. I'll try to work out on something that will warn the player that the controls will change.

Thank you for your feedback !
