That was quite fun, although a little too easy and you could make it go on forever. :D
Keep working on it and I like the graphical style.

ended rather abruptly, even for a wip.
otherwise good.
I liked the pace.
Liked the bullet burst attack.

I would add.
Some sort of background effect, to give the effect of moving through space. e.g just some vertical starlight streaks, or some asteroids.
longer level
and of course a boss.
maybe a bullet hit effect.

I am making a similar style game although mine is horizontal rather then vertical.
I started off doing waves, I has some specified units for the different waves and I could call them randomly or in a specific order.
It made doing the timelines easier. But I just made myself a level editor so I am doing it a little differently now.

menu=good.
asteroids=good.
livescounter=good.

boss= I have no idea what you could do.
maybe a scaled up version of the big red guy.
Animate so it opens and closes its mouth.
Everytime it opens its mouth it would spit out some of those asteroids/balls.

also do gun powerups of course.
I would maybe do it rather then a pickup from an enemy. but do it timed, so every say 2min you would level up to the next weapon.
If you die it would restart. This would also encourage people to replay, to see if they can go through without dying to get the higher weapons. ;)

Well I played the new boss... and I died.
It was good though, I think I was dealing damage to it the way it got harder as I shot it and all.

Finished with 17 lives left.
Loved the boss, initial impression is, wow when am I supposed to dodge these bullets, but there is a gap and it isn't that difficult.
The game seemed to lag everytime he moved down/lost a leg.

It also feels like my bullets are going straight through the regular enemy's, I can never actually see it happening though. Do they have a lot of life?
A hit effect for the boss would be nice too. Just to know i am hurting it.
Also it didn't really look like a spider, but I can sort of see it now, either way it plays nicely.

I also just noticed that your diagonal up-right and bottom-left movement worked fine, but trying to move up-left or bottom-right would not work.

TY guys, glad u liked it, i'll try and fix all any problems, Music is coming as soon as Authentic GameWarz finishes it, new background may not come for a while, im making it on a laggy comp and it's FPS can be stable at like 100 so i hope im not gunna make it lag with a bg. nick, about the movement, yout riht in the exe it's wierd, but in the gmk it works fine... maybe in v0.4.0 iit will work better... i also am making the boss ire more often, and making a quicker laser. More enemies coming soon.

Okay, I played the second level, it was all rather frantic, which was good.
The pause menu is definately a good addition.

Still need to fix up the diagonal movement.
The lives counter got really screwy as well. I selected another level after dying, and it stayed at 0, I kept playing until I was at around -250 lives, it never reset either.
New boss is good though.

wow, that was pretty fun, it was easy until the first level boss, then i figured out the fight ends rather quickly if you know what to do :D

but then i got to the 2nd level, and i was like "holy s**t wtfbbq!?" all those little dudes shooting in arches, crazy.
so far, i cant find anything wrong with the game itself, but i really dont like the menu and hud, the graphics scream arcade, while the effects are still smooth and sleek, which ends up blending really well (like in geometry wars) but the hud just looks strange and out of place.
i dont know what else to say, but so far, so good :P

if the finished game is this fun, its 8 of 10 at least

Look up format factory, it should help you convert.

As for the game, I liked it. Better than anticipated, yet it could use more story, but I guess that will come later.

Not much to say, I haven't gotten far, I'm busy. I'll write a better review later.

Am I allowed to do this? lol.

Well, anyways, I completely forgot about this game, so I'll post a review.

Fun game, but it should be much longer. I think small sounds would be good, otherwise it gets dull. I think the bosses should so less random shooting and more strategy, and things like that.

legal bump
0.6.0pre up and ready for download...
now with
-music
-sound effects
-effects (like splosions)
-level 4 (but no boss)
-a few bug fixes


I have a sad and exciting announcement to make. I will discontinue galex for the simple fact that it was boring to develop and my patience ran out. However, I am making it open source. I will post everything I had made for it (except the old exe's b/c it would have taken 4ever to upload on my crappy internet.)
