    Dude, nice music! Could have lasted a bit longer before it looped though.

    Nice little game, though the music loop could be longer, starts grating on me after a while!

    Great entry, I love shooting. Controls are fine.

    Nice work. It is a very fun an enjoyable game. The only downside I thought it had was the control scheme. I found it very strange to use the arrow keys to shoot and WASD to move. Just difficult for me to pick up. Good job with everything else!

    Nice game, worked perfectly on Web for me (Firefox 16 on Linux)!

    Aug 27, 2012 @ 11:44am

    Nice work. Very good take on the theme. Couldn't run the browser version here (missing applet class) but desktop worked just fine. Good level of difficulty and nice power up system. Only issue was with firing whilst pressed up against any wall (it didn't seem to be possible).

    Can't run because I don't have Java 7. Are you really using java 7 features? Otherwise, just use -source 1.6 -target 1.6 to make it run on java 6.

    I really like the idea. The controls feel a little bit weird, I would like mouse controls more than the keyboard controls. The music is a bid bland, but in the whole a good game.

    The music was cool (though somewhat repetetive!). I really liked the graphics too.

    Had to download the game, chrome was only showing a white screen.

    Now, that was really challenging and really fun to play! I like the frantic and exciting gameplay and the smooth controls. The bosses and the power system are really cool features that I did not expect.

    Two minor(!) complaints: It is difficult to distinguish yourself from your own bullets, especially with the speed upgrade and the music repeats a bit too fast (the loop itself kicks ass).

    Got a could not find the class main.Display error :-(.

    Web version didn`t work :( (Chrome)

    I have java 7 and download version worked for 3 minutes before crashing.

    So I can only rate what happened in those 3 minutes!

    I completed the game without buying a single upgrade. Very easy due to the enemies always circling along the map edges. By sitting in the bottm right corner cintinually firing left, I quickly destoryed most of the enemies.

    You might want to make it easier to hit when roaming, as the enemies move so fast you really cannot hit them consistently with skill alone, and then change the enemy AI to move more randomly.

    It was fun to play, I was quite excited when playing, you should have seen my face ! Music is (a bit) repetitive, but at least it has music ;) Good overall, a complete game.

    Nice game, good graphics and audio :)

    I couldn't seem to get the DNA for health exchange to work - and there's no indication of how much upgrades will cost until you can afford them, so I didn't know if I should save up or not :(

    Nice work! A bit unusual controls, took time to get used to it, but its very fun game.

    oops don't have java 7 yet.

    Cool finished game. Music a bit repetitive. But otherwise: There is music :-)

    I would like to see the cost of the upgrades anytime and not just when I have enough points.

    Pretty nice game, reminds me of the typical bullet hell stuff, and I like those games! Some music would've been nice, though!

    Sep 7, 2012 @ 11:05pm

    Adding to the last comment, I just found the music, and it is awesome!

    Haette says ...
    Sep 17, 2012 @ 7:03pm

    Yeah, shmups!

    You got a good, solid game here, but I have to say that purple bullets on a purple background wasn't the best idea :\
