PLANET CONQUERED

by masterhyjinx - 48 Hour Compo Entry

As a convicted felon you have been drafted into the PC program. The program is set up to send those deemed "useless" to society on suicide missions to conquer alien world's to expand the Empire's territory. The only way to redeem yourself and return to your life is the complete your mission. Command your ship. Complete your mission. LEAVE NOTHING STANDING!

Control your ship with the WASD keys.
Aim with the mouse.
Left click to shoot.

Edit:
I had to take down my Windows 64-bit build in order to feature the time lapse, you can find it here still:

I've failed the empire :(

Level 3 is a BIG step up.

Awesome fun. I could break my mouse this way.

Nice concept, i like the rotary aspect!

No more levels after the 3rd? Two quick things would make it more enjoyable:
1) Holding down the mouse to shoot would be very nice.
2) Once all the guns are destroyed on a level, you should either win or there should be some joy in destroying the remaining buildings.

I really liked the way this was put together. It was pretty enjoyable but it ended too soon. Some more levels would be nice, and some powerups/different weapons would have been good too. But overall very fun game.

My thoughts are the same as hazzen's. I liked the game a lot, but I spent 95% of the time shooting those useless cubes. It's a shame that it's too short too, I do see a lot of potential!

Cool idea, nice retro graphics. Like some of the other reviewers, I would have liked to just hold the mouse down to fire.

Potential for awesome fun here, most of my gripes have already been addressed by others. Auto-fire + increased fire rate, Falling buildings if you come down low and shoot the bottoms first.. anything to make it a bit more fun to cleanse the planet of every last block. Good entry overall.

I lol'd at the tank on top of a skycraper. Overall, kinda fun. Sound effect was very annoying though!

Cool idea and a pretty cool implementation. I just wish it was faster paced.

Lovely shooter! Does get a bit grindy really fast, though.

Not bad, but I share the common theme of wanting a bit more oomph to make it less monotonous.

Fun! Awesome concept. Needs a nuke or something for when all the enemies and turrets are gone. Very satisfying.

Okay, a nice change from LD23's prevalent "stuck on planet, shoot aliens that are attacking from the outside" theme. :)
