Blackstorm II is a defense shooter with a twist: You must absorb your enemies bullets to power your weapons and shields.

Survive 16 increasingly hard waves and defeat the final boss.

Then do it again in New Game + if you want a real challenge.

Very fun game! The only thing I could nitpick at is that I think it's be more convenient if you could pause by hitting P instead of having to click off screen.

I keep getting stuck on the start screen. Not sure why.

Very busy game, lots of adds in it to help out and keep you going . There is no pause so I had to stop at the Upgrade site to write this up. Other then that, it will keep your interest for sure!

Great solid game. I do think the difficulty curve needs to be adjusted and either made slightly more difficult, or the pace of things needs to be changed up. Possibly add more losing conditions because I find that if I don't deposit anything, I end up hoarding it anyway and it transfers regardless. This makes level progression slow, but easier to manage and with a game like this, I think that upping the pace to counter that playstyle would really work in this games favor. Also, this should go on mobile. Also, railgun ftw.

3 stars for innovative, creative and somewhat entertaining game. -2 for lack of balance difficulty and progress (player satisfaction of progress and balanced match against enemies).

Recommend you to continue polishing the idea. Very nicely done. Something new and fresh. Strongly recommend to set a skill tree, shop or any different progress process that encourages to keep playing. Also the "wave" strategy, could easily become a "campaign" instead and give you more place for upgrade and changes without loosing the unique aspects of your game.
