Under rating threshold (show) Any hints for beating the gun platform level? I can't blow up the first one before the second one comes in, and after 20 minutes, I've beaten only the shields of 12 of them and they all kill me :(

Developer response from Marmph

Try using normal missiles to beat down the shields, then use normal or kinetic to take down the health.

Under rating threshold (show) Awsome, simply awsome. This game is pretty cool. But I bet if you added onto it it could become one of the best out there. Until then, this gets a 5/5, and added to my favorites. Keep up the good work.

Under rating threshold (show) Very nice game, thanks for the upload. I am confused at the weapon select, I can't figure out what means the 5X damage at kinetic rocket, and what does the sticky bomb expect that stick. That do damage instant, over time or just after a time..., next time explain everything please, even if sooooo obvious is it. [sorry for the bad english.]

Under rating threshold (show) Why so low a rating? This game is great! Uniqueness: 5/5. The locking system is unlike any I have EVER seen. Graphics: 5/5, being seamless and in style. Music: 5/5. Fast, but still somehow calm, also fits the style. Difficulty: 4.8/5. Learning curve is a little steep, but nowhere did I end up grinding a level. Developer: 6/5, actually listens to comments and changes things! Upgrades: 5/5. Minimalist upgrade systems work well in these fast paced shooters. Playability: 5/5. The speed of the ship is fast, but still tightly controllable. Overall: 5.5'ed and favorited. Seriously guys, why would you rate it down?

Under rating threshold (show) This game deserves a higher rating and more gameplays, definitely. It's an interesting control scheme, it's easy to pick up, and it's fun to play (and watch stuff blow up.) One thing that's unclear to me, despite all the answers: on the kinetic missiles, the response is "5 damage * hit-duration" - does this mean the amount of time the explosion radius covers the target? As a suggestion, I'd say to reduce the kickback from the kinetic missiles a bit - it sends me careering across the screen if I get in range of the explosions. And in range I often am, since the missiles explode on impact with the baddies that are usually chasing me. I guess it's partly a risk of using the high-power missiles, but it doesn't make it any less obnoxious. ;)

Developer response from Marmph

Thanks! The obnoxious-ness of the kinetic missiles is meant to balance out their amazing firepower. Yes, the 5 *hit duration is exactly what you wrote.

Under rating threshold (show) Easiest way I've found to kill the final boss so far is to just use the Splitter Missiles. Trick is though, don't target the last boss at all, only target his little baby targets. That way the missiles explode all around him and hit him with lots of split hits.

Under rating threshold (show) Very fun game. Appears to be impossible to beat the boss, though. I'm fully upgraded, used every weapon and have had no different outcomes. I can blow up the targets he throws indefinitely. I can't seem to get a missile lock on him, though. Is the idea that you have to clear all targets before you can target him? No matter what I do, I can't seem to blow them up faster than he makes them. What am I doing wrong?

+ - !

(0)

Developer response from Marmph

It is possible to lock on to the final boss without destroying the targets first. Try using kinetic missiles or splitter missiles to clear out the targets if they start overwhelming you. I personally just use basic + splitter for the final boss.

Under rating threshold (show) Thank you Marmph for listening to the comments of the players and i look forward to your other games this one is really fun besides what i mentioned before with the unbeatable level 10. also i have a question are the missiles meant to explode when they have not hit anything ? Like they are flying nothing hit them and they explode for no reason.

Under rating threshold (show) Level 10 unbeatable . I have all upgrades and everything and i can't even put a dent in one of the mother ships without it killing me in a few seconds.... Is that level broken or am i just doing something wrong? also being able tog et 20 and up combo with that level is a little bit out there i mean we already got god ships we don;t need a motherload of mini ships to.

Another thing is more ships please and mabey something like 4 weapons at once use spacebar to select. Mabey some more weapons? like some you can buy and not just unlock. sorry for this long thing but just some surrjestions

The number of motherships on level 9 had been reduced. Also, try using the basic missile or sticky missile, those tend to do a lot of damage to motherships.

Intentional! The self damage is intended to be a balance mechanism. Early in development, the kinetic missile used to be able to kill the player with only 2-3 shots!

Under rating threshold (show) think u should do something about playing the last boss thingy since that ship is REALLY slow and well not very good for infinite mode and its more fun to play the little ship cuz it could get owned in 1 sec if u make a wrong turn at the wrong moment so either make the final boss ship smaller and faster or just leave it out otherwise 4/5 almost 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) really enjoyed the game, only two things are i'm not sure what it means by 5X for the kinetic damage, and while very fun, it was hard to play on a laptop mousepad sometimes. That said this genre usually is and it was still playable

5x means: 5 x [amount of time (in game units) that the enemy collides with the explosion]

Under rating threshold (show) Nice and fun game, colorful and with nice and flashy graphics, simple, enjoyable, also nice music track, but a bit more songs would be appreciated However there's a major gripe i have with the game, it's way too easy, especially with the kinetic missiles, I only died once cuz i kept bumping into the weapon platforms but that's around it I thought the final boss was gonna be challenging but then i realized not so, though i did laugh You have a nice sense of humor and i can see you really love the games you make, with a bit more challenge, variety and a bit more music, this game would've been perfect But for now, it's pretty damn good, keep it up! 4/5 Also thanks for the cool points :D

Under rating threshold (show) I kind of agree with those who suggested simply removing coins altogether and just directly awarding the money for killing enemies (at least for the small enemies, you might prefer to keep it as is for the bigger ones). There'd be less visual spam and it'd make mothership missiles a bit more noticeable, in addition to not having to slow down to collect the coins. I do really like the lock-on mechanic, I wish more of these games had that. I liked what someone suggested about playing as the big enemy ships as a reward for winning. I'm curious how the other ship functions but not curious enough to visit the sponsor's site. Thanks for encouraging us to provide you with feedback and seeing the value of criticism, by the way. I wish more people who leave comments on this site understood that. Thanks for uploading, I'll play this again.

+ - !

Developer response from Marmph

While removing coins would reduce visual spam, I still prefer the satisfaction of physically collecting a coin. I don't think it is necessary to slow down for coins as of version 1.091.

Under rating threshold (show) I was knocked out of the arena and into the void a few times, but I saw in one of your replies that you think you'll have that fixed soon. That's good. My biggest gripe is with getting knocked around by my kinetic missiles' explosions. I'd hoped the kickback would only affect my enemies. And I wish my missiles would only collide with those enemies they are locked on to, because in the later levels I want to destroy the biggest enemies first but can't since most of my missiles collide with the weaker mobs. Sure, the way it is now might make it a bit more challenging but I feel it mostly just introduces tediousness: "Too many mobs for me to reach the motherships clustered in the center, now all I can do is restart."

+ - !

(1)

Developer response from Marmph

Getting knocked around by the kinetic missiles was intentional. While they are more powerful in most situations than other missiles, they have the drawback of being incredibly volatile and potentially harmful to your own ship. It is meant to be a sort of balance mechanism.
