I Adore the graphics! game-play gives me Galaxian vibes!

There were a number of issues, for me:

  • The hitbox is not precise, so I died to things that didn't hit me
  • The one-hit death is a bit too much, especially for how the enemies spawn
  • Had too many instances of the enemies spawning behind me, or shooting from off-screen and not having any time to react to their presence
  • Couldn't change planes-- it just brought me in-game
  • A weird, grey box kept appearing frequently in-game

Pretty true to the original game - an arcadey classic. I could definitely see myself playing this a lot! I couldn't figure out what the white boxes do - I was hoping they'd unlock bigger weapons.

Pros

  • Great graphics for the planes! Big fan of the blocky-3D.
  • Difficult! Makes it a challenge and rewarding to replay
  • Controls well, and throws you right back into the action with no down time.
  • Music fits really well

Cons

  • Maybe some minor performance issues? Especially when enemies spawn (OSX Chrome)
  • Hit boxes don't seem so precise. I feel like I died a lot to stuff that didn't actually hit me.
  • Needs a lives system - it's quite punishing currently
  • The backgrounds could be more lively/interesting.

pretty nice game. found a bug where if you accidently clicked off the game window the ship wouldnt stop moving in the direction of that off screen click, even when i clicked back into the window.
