Nice job, really liked the graphics. Kept wanting my player to move faster. Did not understand how it fit the theme.

Weapon reload = 10 seconds , Aliens speask nearly every 10 seconds

We have more ideas about 10 seconds, but have not time to realize them ))) i hope i will fix that.
And 10 seconds to Earth - mean very close to the Earth

I like the idea of limited bullets in a shmup since for most games of this type you just keep the fire button held down (or mash on it) for the whole game, and the alien leader taunting you is a nice touch. It would have been nice if the enemy ships would damage you though, it seems as if the player is invincible?

Nice graphics, seems that there are only a few things relating it to the theme, rather than the main core game concept. But I like the idea.

Good educational game on russian language:) As already has been said, wish my spaceship move a bit faster.

Fun and very nice to play (except the speed of the player, which could be more reactive)

I just fixed all problems, try to play now - I think you will be glad :)

Really cool graphical style. It was interesting how the bullets reload every second, but I felt like I was never able to use up enough shots to really need to wait. Love the creepy alien voices!

Difficulty increased :) Try now !

Very very nice graphics and particles. Yes, the ship was a bit slow indeed. But still fun game.

Nice graphics but everything else felt a bit strange

Oxygamer says ...
Aug 29, 2013 @ 7:15am

Yes, this is strange world and very strange Russian Aliens, the first russian space fleet :)

The game has its problems, but not a bad start.

Nice look! Opening screen graphics are sweet! :) Gameplay wise a bit simple, and did not see how I would win/lose the game?

namrog84 says ...
Aug 30, 2013 @ 10:06am

I wish player could move faster
Over did the bloom a bit

Interesting and mildly fun

Great art/style and special effects though!

Beatiful graphics, I like the comments of the alien. Maybe the gameplay could have been taken further with more dangerous ennemies or power-ups. But anyway, I enjoyed this game!

Ok. We have great plans on this games, but the rules of Ludum Dare limits us to impoove it right now :) Maybe you will see it in the market soon

Nice graphics, understood very quickly the weapon reload time after I fired all my bullets wildly as fast as I could. Solid work! :-)

Nice particles. ¿The game never ends? The earth was destroyed but i could keep playing.

Really cool graphics style and particle effects! Didn't really understand how to win/lose but the use of the theme was quite interesting!

Aug 30, 2013 @ 1:52pm

Ok guys, I will fix this today :)

Aug 30, 2013 @ 1:56pm

Did somebody found secret feature in menu ?)

Well done! The glow effect is a bit too much though.

The voice effects and music were nicely done. I like the job you did on the alien face graphic and his voice.

Oxygamer says ...
Aug 30, 2013 @ 3:57pm

We used Garage Band on iPad to create all music and voices :) I think we can even impoove sound. Thanks for your comments. It's very important for us !

Those gfx are nice, the space and the explosions in particular. I like how you used the theme and make it an ammo restriction.
I miss a system which reward the good actions. I can loose if the planet explodes but I feel like I can't win.
And if you work on a post compo version, an upgrades system could really boost the fun.
Nice touch for the Russian alien talk, I learnt something :)

:) From Ukraine with love. Ok I have plan to add some achievements. Becouse now,in fact, you can't win. And even alien joke on this thing ))

Not bad, but the game is overall a bit slow and feels unreactive, keep going :)

Really liked the title screen music, and the aesthetic was really strange and interesting.

I think the game itself is a little flawed; my biggest issue was that the sluggish movement of the ship didn't seem to fit this kind of game and just served to be frustrating.

Still, great job.

Make some optimization on perfomance. Both Web and PC version.

Sep 9, 2013 @ 12:50pm

was fun, i realised eventually that there the earth gets bombarded every 10 seconds or something, then I connected it to the them - otherwise, I was unsure of the theme until then. But overall, pretty nice.

Solifuge says ...
Sep 11, 2013 @ 4:38am

Seems like a weak use of the theme, like it was designed more for "Space" than "10 Seconds", it was a very pretty shmup. The controls could have been a bit tighter, and the Shots Remaining counter a bit more obvious, but otherwise it was nice. Good work!

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
