Choppy? Try reloading your browser, that might just be the youtube video. The gameplay if fast paced but not choppy or anything

The animations are much better in the actual game, must be a video issue. Everything is very smooth and retina-y. This is basically a castle defense game, in space. You have 4 weapons to work with, and they're each designed for a different situation. They can be upgraded 4 times each. There does seem to be a bit of a grind to upgrade them, and I can't tell whether there are other starbases/locations to defends once a threat is over as I haven't lasted long enough.

Would be nice to upgrade your starship even more, besides just the weapons. Maybe even other gunships to buy.

The starbase can be upgraded a couple times, to withstand more punishment from the enemy, it could use some more as well, like some weapons or fighter launch pads.

In any case, it's definitely worth a buck for the eye candy.

Thanks for the great review araczynski.

I am working on adding more missions and gameplay modes beyond the first starbase. Someone on another forum suggested Marines and alien boarding parties, which would be pretty cool.

There is also a sentry gun that you will be able to place in future updates to help you defend the base.

Thanks sugimulm.

I've put up a video with a few tips for aiming some of the more advanced weapons in the game. Merry Christmas!
