Update! [April 28, 2010]

Changed a lot of stuff and added lots of new enemies. The game is more exciting and challenging now. Check it out:


Arrows: Move ship
Z: Fire
X: Deploy Squadron
C: Insert coin
Enter: Start game
A: Auto-fire On/Off (you can also hold down the fire button for 1 sec to turn it on)
P: Pause On/Off
F1: Reset Game
ESC: Quit

**To map out new keys to these actions, use the config application to enter the new key codes.

[Original message]
If you played my Astrosmash game, this is a new unique game but using the same engine. I remade it to avoid legal issues with Intellivision. Here are some changes I made:

-New enemies, graphics(check out the Plasma Shield!), music(more to come)
-Vertical or Horizontal orientation(try it in Vertical mode if you can rotate your monitor.)
-The game is now in 8-bit color so it can be played on slower machines.

If those with older machines can give me what FPS you're running at and your basic machine specs, that would be great. I'd like to know what's the minimum requirements. You can display the FPS by turning it on in the Config tool. Also let me know of any suggestions/ideas/bugs you might have. This game is still being developed.

Thanks for playing.
