Edit: It's been fixed, obviously.

It appears my previous post didn't show up. Let's try again. Ahem.

"The scanline effect makes every pixel on the screen look more important than all its neighbors, and together with the insane amount of bullets this makes Psycho Powers a truly dazzling experience."

I'm overdark, and this is my favorite game on the Citadel!

To those who are worried, no, this is not spam; I'm the guy who did the music for Psycho Powers.

Psycho Powers has been updated! If you gave up because it was too hard you should try it again. It's a lot easier now.

Downloaded and tried the new version. MUCH better. :) Haven't finished it yet, but at least there's hope now. :D

Managed to get to the last boss with all three lives. And then I lost them all on the second bullet pattern.

Christ this game is hard.

Nice updates though. Seems all the major problems have been fixed.

I'm currently playing the hard version. It lives up to its name. I haven't even gotten down the easy mini-boss' HP below 50%, but I'm still having a lot of fun and improve after each play (or at least, so the highscore says).

For the sake of your sanity, I would recommend the newer version. It saves your high-score, as well as not having the final boss be completely unfair.

Wow, finally got around to trying this, and it's insane! Literally! I could feel myself losing touch with reality while playing. Scary.

There are a lot of things working really well together in this game, the music goes well with the game, and I like the graphics, it has that kinda rough feel to it, but works really well (for me, anyway).

I game over'd at this big brain-looking thing.

May I suggest posting it over at the shmup-dev forums
http://www.shmup-dev...qq63&board=85.0

They aren't as active as they use to be (well, they are near dead) but still: It's a place to post it, and it has a lot of history!

That would be the game's half-way point. Good luck!

I took a look at that shmup-forum but I wouldn't feel right submitting Psycho Powers there until I add the extra stuff I always mean to but never get around to adding.

O.k. I did it!

I used those 2 head things the whole time (basically). No idea if that counts as cheating, but heck, I needed the fire power.

I didn't die once until I beat that brain thing. Then I died. Honestly, I don't even know why, I'm sure nothing hit me. :P I died 2 more times, for similar reasons. Around the 3rd time I was getting nervous about it, and ready to blame the game, but luckly I finished before then!

Beat smiliey boss.
Spoiler


Craaaazy. At least I'm 2-0 against Zeddy's games.

Btw, nice graphics, if I didn't say that already.

Edit: Btw, get a proper game icon.
