Fantastic game. Clean and fast. Perfect music. Awesome! Only one gripe: I wish I could use W, A, S, D for maneuvering the ship.

The sheer number of random retro insertions makes this a winner. Combine that with nice, clean graphics and a great soundtrack, and you have a real winner. Difficult game, but very short once you get the hang of it. Finally, the boss fight is so great that the first time I got there I died because I was too busy laughing.

Nice game - cute, quirky and pays a lot of credence to such classics as Scramble, Asteroids and Space Invaders. Can't be bad. Yep, it's tricky, but it keeps you coming back for more. Runs great on my G3 400 PowerBook.

Yes, it's supposed to be hard. My advice is to use a bomb or two at the beginning, to get all of the powerups right away.

If you're really good at shootempus, the game isn't going to last long enough to play more than once. If you're not really good at shootemups, you're not going to last long enough to play more than once.

Nicely done game. Even if your hardware doesn't measure up to the recommended, try it - works fine on a 667MHz TiBook with a 16MB ATI Rage graphics card. But the game is hard. It takes too much to kill things. Have you considered putting in multiple difficulty levels that adjust how much damage enemies can take?
