Quite buggy (ship get stuck at the left of screen, soundeffects turn on and off) and not so smooth at all. The soundtrack doesn't loop seamlessly too. Sorry, more work needed on this game

It has the basic and retro feel and I find it to be fun to play. Although it does need some fine tuning to make it alittle smoother.

This game is/was an entry in a programming contest held by iDevGames. IIRC, the site requires contents participants to open publicise their work to better facilitate judging. I'm sure that this game will be either improved if the developer has time, or pulled off the 'Net if he doesn't.

This was an entry to an iDevGames contest that took was time-limited (21 days, or 3 weeks). The game itself was quickly developed, and was my first completed product in Objective C. To answer a few of your issues: 1. It's slow because it uses Quartz to render the graphics. I.e. your graphics card doesn't get to help much. This is too bad, but something that will never be fixed. 2. The ship shouldn't get stuck in the top left corner. You've found a bug! 3. The sounds should not suddenly stop working - they're a tad bit buggy and shouldn't sound so fantastic, but they won't simply stop working. In most likelyhood you pressed 's' by mistake, thus disabling the sound effects. 4. The music has a slight gap in between loops - this is because Apple's Cocoa media classes don't loop properly (or at all). Blame either: a) bad code OR b) bad docs for that one :) All in all, it's an unpolished product, thus why it's free. Still, I don't think it reflects badly on me - its purpose is finished, and as far as I'm concerned, development on this product is finished. I just thought I'd let a few people try it! Cheers, and thanks for testing it out!
