Under rating threshold (show) the only thing I didn't like, it was hard to follow the storyline, because I was focused on destroying the enemy, not reading. Some type of voice or maybe the text more centered so that it's easier to read while not taking your eyes of the enemy.

Under rating threshold (show) To win in hard mode, it's essential to upgrade your main gun and repair drone. Little gun are useless in beginning, and later i recommand to get a lot of fighter, they divert main fire from your ship.

Under rating threshold (show) PERFECT GUIDE. First, upgrade your main gun to {Damage(4), Firerate(3), Speed(3), HP(0)}, and then your drones to {Drones(5), Dronerepair(2), Dronerepairrate(0)}. If your health falls below 50%, start upgrading the drones before the gun. After all this is bought, buy one more fighter from your fighter bay, then max your gun all the way. After gun is maxed, this should be about the start of ch5, buy the other three fighter bays and one extra fighter at each bay(so that you have a total of 8 fighters). After this, max your drones all the way, then start buying lasers. Buy one laser, then max it before moving on. This is the best way to go, just DON'T FORGET TO LEAD THE TARGET, also there is a little luck involved so don't lose faith. PLEASE KEEP THIS POST ALIVE

Under rating threshold (show) There needs to be a pause between levels or at least when the story is being told so that we can read it without having to keep an eye for enemies; or at least save all the storyline text in a log which we can see by pressing 'L' or something. Rated 4/5. Waiting for the sequel.

Under rating threshold (show) Here's my improvement of branimirb's guide. First upgrade the main guns damage and fire rate by three tiers. Ignore HP and speed, those are useless. Once those upgrades are bought by 5 extra drones and upgrade dronerepair to 2. Get the 4th upgrade to damage on the main gun. Follow his guide until he tells you to build laser turrets. Instead of building turrets upgrade the health, build rate, and amount of fighters you have. Those are great at drawing enemy fire.

Under rating threshold (show) i really loved the game 5/5 but i think that the little ships should stay on the screen more, not just be little red and green arrows pointing up or down, it kinda robbed the game of that "holy crap im compleely and utterly sucked into this game" feeling. it was still there granted, but it woulda been stronger without the little arows

Under rating threshold (show) Turrets are a waste of ressources : they're easily destroyed and you have to build and upgrade any of them again from the beginning. It would be better if you could just rebuild previously upgraded turrets in their former state. Anyway, fighters are top since they keep their upgrades when respawning and they drive enemy fire away from your carrier starship. Upgrade all repairing drones to the max : you need it several times, especially in hard mode. Upgrade your main cannon to defeat big enemy ships. Then, add turrets : more basic turrets are better than fewer upgraded ones. When upgrading your turrets, star with rear turrets : they're less targeted by enemy ships. Upgrade fire rate and firepower. HP can't be upgraded enough to be interesting.

Under rating threshold (show) I just encountered a game shattering bug. On about chapter 8 of Hard mode, I lost and tried to restart from the checkpoint. However, every time I clicked restart the screen would just flash and go nowhere. I restarted my browser and the game and chose "Continue (Hard)." When I did that, the screen simply floated forward as if I'd started a new game but there was no ship on the screen. Clicking the "Upgrades" button showed a screen with the ship but no upgrade icons or options. In otherwords, a totally crashed save. I have a feeling I wasn't far from the end but I'm a bit hesitant to try again...hopefully this isn't a commonly occurring bug.

Under rating threshold (show) General Tips[more tips on ship maintenance and upgrading]: Build up your repair drones before adding turrets. Drones will automatically repair your turrets after finishing repairs on your hull. A turret you cannot maintain is a destroyed turret; a waste of time and resources. When placing turrets, start in the center 3 spaces on your ship. These are the least susceptible to enemy fire and require the least supervision. Check and repair manually as needed. Never place turrets on the forward section of your hull. The front of your ship is constantly being bombarded with incoming mines, asteroids, and enemy fire, and turrets placed here never last long. Keeping your turrets grouped together will reduce the unproductive travelling time of your repair drones.

Under rating threshold (show) General Tips[to keep your game face on in any difficulty level]: on attacking small fighters- Don't shoot sporadically. Make a wall of impenetrable fire, and move it slowly towards center of swarm. on asteroids- 3 or 4 small rocks are more deadly than one big rock. if you can't destroy it completely, then don't fire upon it. on mines- These are top priority. Very deadly. Nevermind the top and bottom ones, they won't hit your ship(unless dragged by your fighters). Multiple fighters do come in handy here. on capital ships- Always aim for the unobstructed turret. Turret hits also damage the hull, and reward you more points when destroyed first, not to mention they will no longer be able to fire back.

The cheats is, when you start a new game just type "cash" with no quotations!! Type it as much as you want, it adds 1000 dollars!!!!

Under rating threshold (show) the checkpoint system needs some serious reworking. a new chapter will start will enemies from the previous chapter are still on screen. i kill the enemies and receive the respective ru, but if i die in the new chapter and respawn when the chapter started, the enemies that were from the previous chapter don't respawn with me and therefore i lose any possibility of getting that ru back. essentially the game sometimes makes it unable for me to get ru, which is a huge setback on the hard difficulty
