Easy choice to pick this up after the Crusaders of Space 2 giveaway awhile back. I have to somewhat agree, though, that neither game feels as good as Tyrian or Raptor used to. Mouse control just isn't as fluid for a shooter as gamepad control, and the levels make it feel more like a Centipede clone.

Still, for free, no complaints from me.

Semicolon, the RPG shareware industry has some true gems, which is why I wish they'd get some of that genre on here. FastCrawl, or the Avernum games by Spiderweb Software, or Aveyond... all in the right price range to be free for a day, and they're games that deserve attention. Ah well.

Mediocre, not nearly as good as Tyrian 2000, which happens to be FREEWARE...

I'm convinced that shareware producers don't have an ounce of creativity in them.

This is a fun game. I enjoy the soundtrack, and it takes me back to my days of playing Asteroids, even though you are shooting alien ships in this game. Does anyone know if you can change the keyboard controls? That is the only drawback if there is not a way to change them. It gets really annoying having to use right CTRL for the primary fire. I would much rather use space bar.

Thanks, GOTD, for the great game!

Pretty good shooter. Offers choice to use mouse, keyboard or joystick. Music volume, sound FX, and screen brightness are all adjustable in options as well as difficulty levels. Graphics are pretty good and explosions have decent sound. The background has a moving starfield with meteors. Like all shooters there's bonuses to catch and as someone else mentioned the ship is a pretty big target, bigger than on most shooters.

Those who aren't getting the full version need to activate. Readme instructions were to activate first then install but you can still activate if you already installed first. Completely close the game (CLOSED not minimized), go back to the same zip file where you found the installation setup.exe and find the file activate.exe. Make sure your internet connection is open and double click activate.exe, a small gray box will appear that says successfully activated. Click OK on the gray box, your browser will then go to the web page that tells you activation was successful. That's it, reopen the game to find the full registered version.

I was excited when I saw a shoot-em-up, but it runs way too slowly on my PC (even after I adjusted the graphical settings). :( I have a pretty decent PC too, so I'm not sure what the problem is.

For anyone who seems to get only trial versions of the games: after you download, unzip the folder and click "README". It will walk you through everything you need to do to get the full version of the game.

The game loads as a trial version with only 60 minutes, is there a way to get around that? Why is it that some games on this site are like that? Blazeschi-ext4@yahoo.com Thanks for help.

Nice graphics...I guess. Tolerable music. Too bad it wouldn't let me play. I installed it (and activated it) three times, from two downloads, and still all I got after clicking "Start Game" was an option to go "Back". Now I don't have time to fool with it any more.

I'm STILL looking for a good Space Invaders/Galactix clone.

This is a fun game! Well worth a try. Like Space Invaders with enemies that have life gauges.

The only thing I don't like about it is that your ship is just too big a target, and it's easy to confuse enemy fire as something from the background. But that only adds to the challenge. Good job!

#7 I had to do a restore yesterday, too. I lost Robbox and 3 apps. I am going to start doing a system restore point before and after each install so when one of GOTD programs causes a system problem, I won't lose that much. I really liked Robbox.

Hey Arian, comment #5 if you like Magic Ball 2 then download the Magic Ball 3 demo from Alawar as it's far better than it's predesessor. I ended up buying it Christmas day as the superbly improved graphics and extra power ups were worth the money. (plus the discount I got for buying it Xmas day) I can't see it being given away as it's one of their top games. You can also get some extra level packs for Magic Ball 2---The Spring Level Pack and the Valentine's Level Pack, both for $14.99 and well worth the money if you really like this game as you get 100 levels extra for each pack.

As for this game. Thank you. I enjoyed Crusaders of Space 2 which was a give away around a month ago. It'll be nice to see what the differences are between this first one and that. This is one of the genre that I've come to like thanks to Giveaway of the Day. A friend of mine from way back had the Atari version and I was always amazed at the power ups and the bosses at the end of a level. Nice one guys :)

The Alawar games are absolutely worth tryng (I like Magic ball 2 the most). This game is also great: I tried the hard game and it's real challenging. So in a scale from 0-10 I give the program 9 points.
