Under rating threshold (show) Wave 18, 32759 points, 13609 candy, 2cats, 2ninjas. Rank General. Kept special up as often as I could, Did lots'a vertical movement to 'spread the love' as much as possible. Most waves were either dead or reduced by at least 75% as soon as they arrived onscreen. As long as you prioritize the Gunners the other spawns don't present as much of a challenge. For upgrading I put everything I could into Candy first and filled in the rest with what was left over. My reasoning was that not only would I get the upgrades faster but the candy would contribute to the score. Hope this helps.

They're sort of just taking all the kids' halloween candy." "Okay, that's a relief." "Should we get the FBI on them? The CIA? The milit-" "Nah, let's just leave it. I'm sure if we just ignore it long enough, the kids will just form vigilante death squads and start killing the aliens for us." "Um, okay...

Under rating threshold (show) Can't figure out what to do to level up faster, is it just play a whole heap of short games? Play a really long one? The levelling system seems inconsistent.

Under rating threshold (show) I really like the concept for this game! A sidescrolling shooter with a team of four units, selected from a list of classes? That sounds awesome! The reality? Every class feels too similar, except the ninja. Perhaps there should have been a greater focus on the weapons? Maybe a class that shoots infrequent, powerful bullets, one that shoots a rapid-fire barrage, one using a auto-homing missile, perhaps? As it stands, everyone shoots the same bullets, except the pirate and ninja. :/

Under rating threshold (show) Surviving 19 waves for the hard badge does not make it an endurance badge. Papa's Pizzeria . . . now THAT was an endurance badge. Played it every day for two weeks while procrastinating during finals, and still didn't earn the badge.

Under rating threshold (show) Not quite enough strong options to keep playability up past campaign completion. I actually prefer 2 supers, 2 ninjas. what comes from behind isn't nearly as serious as those homing jerks. 4/5

Under rating threshold (show) Upgrading the special attack increases its recharge rate - for the Cat the frenzy lasts untill the bar is 50% recharged. This means that when you upgrade the special it actually lasts less time and DECREASES your damage. This needs a fix (+) so the developer sees.

Under rating threshold (show) A fun little game, but needs the balancing that most have already said. 3 Ninjas and 1 Cat is demonstrably superior to any other possible combination. Vertical movement is too slow. Bullet patterns have too little variation. Why not more spread patterns, splash shots, homing weapons, rapid fire or, since half the enemies come from behind, why not a single unit that shoots backwards? Great potential--I hope it gets a sequel or an update.

Under rating threshold (show) 2 ninjas in the back, 1 cat, and a witch make this game a cakewalk. For some reason the witch's effect and the cat's both stack, meaning you can get around that slow movement while covering the screen with bullets. (with a 2 second pause in between your volleys..) Other than that, I really enjoyed the game.

Under rating threshold (show) I agree with NanakoM, but I added one piret, two ninja and a cat, finihed all and achieved badge in survival. one think I'm not sure of, the max status to add is it +90. I finished the story with +90. Nice game and 5/5.

Under rating threshold (show) The guaranteed winning combination is 2 ninja and 2 cats: I was able to get >30,000 points on level 17. .............However, it is worthy of consideration that the witches' special is the same as the cats, but the witches shoot faster and bring "+20 SPECIAL" -- making the most important thing - your special attack- refresh MUCH faster.

Under rating threshold (show) Two Ninja and two Cats is also pretty devastation. The Ninja provide spray damage and rear attack, and the cats send the whole crew into overdrive, filling the screen with shots. One Cat and three Ninja, though, doesn't have the same punch... you need two Cats to get the superior Speed boost from the Special.

Under rating threshold (show) Very enjoyable game I played it a few times happily trying out different teams until I eventually just went for an all ninja team, could do with some fine tuning in the way you move around, mostly the slowness of moving up and down. Also I was thinking a sound or something coming up on the screen to let you know your special is ready would be nice, there were a couple of times where I was overrun with enemies and trying to avoid them/their attacks so I couldn't really see if my special bar was full and would try to maneuver into the middle for my special and end up taking a lot of damage because I didn't realise it wasn't ready.
