F-Secure marks it as 'harmful'. It gives me a warning on every GM game, but this is the first time it has outright rejected a GM game. I'll give you the community rating, but it'd be really great if you could look to this!

Hi Hempuli. I can tell you that it is definitely not harmful.

I did a quick google and some people had the same issue and got around it by simply changing the icon for their game. I've done this and re-uploaded it. As all I did was change the icon I still consider it the competition entry. Can you please try again. Thanks dude.

If that doesn't work, there is probably some way you can tell F-Secure that you do want to play it even if it says it is harmful. I don't know F-Secure at all though, so can't really help with that.

PS The score to beat is 130

I made 22 in single player. Can't vote for multiplayer though. Obviously multiplayer rocks anybodys socks off.
Single player is rather boring without any real challenge. Maybe consider adding an AI player?

Couldn't close the game from the actual game screen, which had me hitting the task manager.
Inclusion of multi-player is really awesome though. I also liked the varied background music!

Decent entry, nice to have more multiplayer games.

Pretty cool, would like to have had a score meter in-game, just because I'm competitive like that. :)

Thanks for playing and for the kind comments everyone.

@Endurion: That score sounds like you might have been playing on Easy. If you want a challenge, you should check out Hard mode and try and beat my high score of 130.

@Rikkard: Damn. Nicely spotted. I close it by pressing Esc.

@Dark Acre Jack: The score meter is subtly located in the title bar. Easy to miss.

Cheers guys. You are all awesome.

Pretty nice game, good effort. I don't see how the convoy is useful though. Is that for multiplayer?

Thanks dude. As long as any ship in your convoy is alive, you are still in the game. If the first ship crashes, you control the second one. More ships = more lives.
