Reviews for "Beyond Lightspeed"

This reminds me of the game called accelerator. Key controls is a bit slow compared to mouse controls but it is good enough. However I am having trouble with blind spots especially when the ship is at the center of the screen. I can't see anything directly in front of the ship. For this reason, it seems that keeping the ship at the bottom of the screen while weaving left and right is the easiest way to achieve a high score. Which, esentially make this into a not-so-3D-game.

Not bad little game. My fastest speed - 1,427,760,000
It could have medals.

This is honestly, one of the most fun games on Newgrounds I've played in a long time. I'm seriously impressed. But do you think you could add the option to invert the directional keys. I'm so used to hitting W or Up to descend, and S or Down to ascend, as thats how it is in most games when you're in flight, so very commonly playing your game, i flew right into an asteroid when i was trying to avoid it.

But its still a great game. I had a lot of fun playing it. In fact, the above is just a personal preference, and the lack thereof inverted controls, isn't gonna stop me from giving you the full five stars.

Thanks LordKieta!!! And yes, someone mentioned it before, and I will definitely add the invert option, in either the next installment of the game, or my next 3D flight game.

Reminds me of a old DOS game I have played 20 years ago...the memories.

Thanks for bringing me back to the past.

Wow, all these comments and not one mention of Ludicrous Speed? I couldn't help but think of it when I saw the description on the front page.

Getting down to the actual review, I found the game pretty enjoyable, and a decent difficulty. The biggest problem that I found was that the ship was a bit too bulky, if you left it in the middle of the screen, and that made it hard to see incoming asteroids. For the most part, staying at the bottom proved to be the most effective strategy, and I encountered a lot fewer down at the bottom than if I were to stay in the middle or the top. I was able to reach incredibly high speeds, doing so.

Overall, a pretty solid game.
