Commenting again for updated ratings. (Is that how it works? IDK)

Definitely needs a small tutorial text at start, I didn't realise I could get part of the enemies.

Other than that, I loved the name, gameplay and the music. Excellent job.
PS. If you add controller support in a later update, it would be legendary :)

Controls are a bit tough to deal with, but otherwise cool! Any chance of a mac port?

Nik says ...
Aug 27, 2012 @ 8:40am

Currently game maker doesn't have a mac export, which kinda sucks.

If you want something to beat, try and beat 1204 years with 45 kills ;)

Really addicting but fun to play! Could have used some stars in the background, though and a tutorial.

Great game, very original, looks beautiful, and the game is very fun too! One of the best submissions i've seen.

Great game! I'd love to see this a bit more fleshed out!

Aug 27, 2012 @ 4:16pm

Great! i loved it! the only problem really, was that my computer often froze and i lost control of the ship for a while, the computer beeps for a bit and then you regain control. really cool upgrading. :)

@commanderstitch That's nothing to do with the game mate ;)

Pretty cool, although I wish I had radar or something, because it got a bit boring to just fly around without knowing where the other ships were.

Very enjoyable. :)

Great game! Fun gameplay and perfect visuals for the genre.

Pretty cool little entry, the controls are smooth and the graphics are better than most, but I had issues with the moust controls - 2 or 3 mins in, the mouse seemed to unfocus, and the game stopped responding to its movement. I could still use the mouse button controls, though.

The game is super except controls, they are good :)

Great visuals and fun to upgrade ship as you play. Really good submission.
I dislike that almost dead ships can leave the arena. Very good otherwise.

Pretty awesome, great graphics, great game. My one gripe is that, I know the ship gets easier to control as you play and get new stuff, but that doesn't mean the controls should be awful from the get-go. Because they are, in my opinion, very annoying at first.

It's an incredibly addicting and fun game, but it's in desperate need of a minimap. I had no issues with running the program.

Can you beat 2300 years 66 species destroyed?
