You just shoot the droids.

I wasn't originally going to participate, but as dollarone requested I make my entry in QBasic, here we are. :D

Very nice controls and very fun to play. I love the old arcade art style following the original highscore systems used by arcades. Good job!

heh, love the sound and music ALL HUMANS MUST BE DESTROYED excellent stuff.

The game plays really well, although I tried to speedrun it and was rewarded with very few points at all! Good AI and I love that the door is closed when you move to a new room.

I shall conquer that leaderboard, oh yes, I shall.

Hey I liked the classic stylings, enjoyed the pixely explosion effects. I have to work on my score though

Excellent, brilliant. Man you bring back memories.
I can't believe that we got a game which is made with QBasic. I take my hat of for you.
Thanks for the game.

I forgot how to use the 8-direction movement/shooting, but by the end of my run I had a lot of fun with diagonal long shots :D
Some of the rooms where you didn't have as much cover when you went in were really engaging. And so is the AI.
Maybe some directions would be cool, since i was getting lost in the empty rooms.
Love the arcade style, and its a good fit with the theme.
