The game has no save options, you have to play it perfectly. Its like an old NES game, you have one path, you have to fly it perfectly or its over for you. Its not a learning and skill game, its just memorize the one right path and fly it perfectly, just gets real boring after a while.not to mention the lack of saving options is dumb.
Great music, cool game, but one nagging issue
I like this game a lot. I'm not quite sure $20 is the right price, but if it goes on sale, get it!Pro:- Jets! It's true- Guns! Also true- Explosions! Corollary to Jets + Guns- Awesome, awesome soundtrack. You will know it the second the title appears.- Lots to do: Ship upgrades, collectible things, secondary goals, mini games, flavor text…- Challenging!Con:- 800x600 resolution looks a bit dated.- The damage and heat gauges are impossible to read!I want to elaborate a bit. You know how in most games, when you get hurt, you have some intuitive idea of how much it hurt? In this game you have no idea, unless you specifically look down to the corner and read the gauge. And since there is always something to dodge, you rarely get the chance to look. As a result, you think you're doing fine, but then suddenly you're dead! The heat gauge works the same way. Suddenly your guns stop working because you're overheating, but you didn't know you were overheating because you couldn't take your eyes off the action.This is not part of the challenge, it's just crappy. Some games solve this problem by running a bar all the way up the side of the screen, so you can read it with peripheral vision, and you just *know* your health. When you get hit, you notice the bar going down even though your eyes are still on the action.I want to love this game but this is a huge obstacle. Damage and heat gauges really need to be redone.
Those of us old enough to remember the genre will find this game satisfyingly good. Lots of guns, upgrades & such. Quite difficult too. High quality, smooth moving sprites. A worthy purchase.
Charged wrong price
Game is very responsive, very fun. The description says 50% off for a limited time launch. I got charged full price.
Entertaining. Bug is fixed.
They fixed the zombie bug, so you're good to go.Entertaining distraction. Exactly what you expect. Difficulty level is good so you won't breeze right through it. Customizing the ship is a great part of the game -- you can completely redo your set up each level and tailor it to specific enemies.
