Destroyer: Invasion
In Brief
In Soviet Russia, Space Hears You Scream! Earth is a memory, its children have escaped to their new colonies spread among the stars. But now, the young colonies face a new and unexpected threat. Join the New Russian Republic as they fight for the future!
Suggestions:
If you receive a key for Destroyer: Invasion please give some feedback about your opinion of the game, for example, what you liked or disliked about it, or how it could be improved from your point of view . If you don't like this genre at all, please explain why. What, improvements, if any, would change your opinion? There are thousands of subscribers to the game giveaway of the day every weekend which makes this an ideal forum for giving developers ideas as to what their consumers (i.e you) would like to see in a game. For example, you could suggest extra content such as better or more original mini games, or a level editor that you would like to see that would make it more appealing to you. Maybe you think the graphics are a little dated and are in need of re skinning, or maybe you've just had enough of the genre and want to see something different or something with more originality?

If you miss the offer, you can get the game 24/7 via Steam HERE. It usually costs £1.59/$1.99.
Installation:
Assuming you win a Steam key for Destroyer: Invasion once you've found it (should be sent to the email you used to enter the giveaway - it must be the email you first used to sign into the game giveaway site. If you’ve used a throwaway email there may be problems getting a key, because the key may be sent to that email. If you have any problems use the contact form. Hopefully the giveaway team will repost the information they posted several weeks qgo explaining the email situation. ) you have to activate the game via your Steam client. Once activated it will be permanently tied to your Steam profile and you'll be able to install the game at any time, anywhere on any computer, so long as you can validate who you are (usually via emails etc.). If you don't have a Steam account you will first have to download and install the Steam client HERE

ss_dd5c48f6bc5f08adb9306428e9536b3bd7d98c70
Then create a Steam profile/account. Once that has been completed you can input the Steam code that you've received (after completing the form filling) via the game button along the top of the Steam client, (located between friends and Help). From the drop down menu select 'Activate a product on Steam'. This opens a product activation window. Just follow the prompts to complete activation. Once the Steam code has been accepted, the game will be permanently associated with your Steam account and can be installed any time you wish.
If you have a problem installing or activating or getting Destroyer: Invasion to work, please visit the problems section over in the Game Discussion forums, which I've now incorporated into the FAQ's thread, and which you can find HERE

You have been commissioned as a Captain, and charged with the command of a squadron of fighter drones. We have had little time to prepare, but crews have been working non-stop. Through blood, sweat, and the tears of potatoes, they have crafted a fine, strong fighter to battle our enemies. Forced into battle, you must pilot your limited number of fighter drones against the looming menace, huge motherships with tons of cannons, turrets, and multitudes of other weapons and targets. You have unlimited lasers and bombs, but you must avoid massive amounts of incoming ordinance, survive if you can so you don't run out of fighters, and don't let them reach our new home!
Report directly to the Supreme Commander, he will be personally handling your mission briefings. Science and Engineering experts are working 31 hours a day to try and analyze the enemy and unlock powerful upgrades for your drones, but the enemy won't wait for them.

You can find a link to a demo of the game via Steam HERE. The download is 62.9MB in size and does not require Steam to play. The installed game is 352MB in size. The default installation path is as follows

C:\Program Files (x86)\MFAFB Games\Destroyer Invasion (demo)
The game was originally released on Steam via the now defunct Greenlight project. You can see the communities comments about the game HERE. It was officially released on Steam on the 14th July 2017 and has seen three updates so far.
When you start the game via Steam you are given two options. apparently there is a glitch using a game pad unless you play via Win 10, so you are given two choices; Play Destroyer: Invasion or Play Destroyer win 10 version.

You can pass the intro scene by pressing the Esc key, this will then take you directly to the games main menu where you can choose either continue or start a new game. Ten Steam achievements were added to the game shortly after it was officially released last month (July 2017) and include such titles as You Shoot like Little Girl (which I won on my first play), If you manage to survive a complete run at full speed with at least 10 targets destroyed you'll earn the title Threading the Needle, Destroy four engines in a single fighter run and earn the achievement Cut 'em to the quick. Scoring points will eventually earn you three awards 50 000, 100 000 & 150 000, plus others. (see image of the listed achievements). Each level is time limited, using MF units, which are displayed after you lose a fighter. At the same time you'll be able to see how many targets remain on that level. If you lose you have to restart at the beginning of the level you failed. Once you've completed a stage, it is saved and you are able to continue from that point. There is no randomness in the game play in that to complete a level you need to destroy all of the cannons and engines of the alien invader to complete the level. If you lose all of your ships re playing the level is basically the same each time you play that level apart from where you decide to move your fighter. As you progress the alien invaders become harder to destroy and new weapons are introduced.

Other Reviews and Videos of Destroyer: Invasion:
You can see Steam community reviews of HERE, and if you want to see some game-play you can see some videos of game play HERE, HERE and HERE.
Conclusion:
If you like shmups, Destroyer: Invasion is a different take on the genre. Well worth investigating. It's not one of those bullet hell types though it can be frustrating at times as you only get so many attempts to destroy the boss ships (watch the MF countdown) before you have to start over again.
Personally I find the left hand pane (with the hand) spoils the overall look of the game and would be much improved if the developer replaced that side with images that change from level to level. Scenes appropriate to the game play, alien ships exploding etc. I would also like to see the actual game play area increased in size.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the developer MFAFB Games for giving away Steam keys for Destroyer: Invasion and also to the game giveaway team, as always, for securing other ways to get free games.
Useful Information not related to today's game giveaway:
The problems section that used to be posted here in the Game review is now included in the Game Discussion FAQ's thread; which you can find HERE.
I've updated the games section that used to be posted with the review. The thread is now called 'Weekly round up of game deals', formerly the games section of the weekly reviews. You can find the new thread (which I've posted in the sticky section of the game discussion forums to make it easier to find if you are perusing the game discussion forums) HERE.
The rest of the information that used to be posted here can be found in the forums HERE. Don't forget, if you have an account with DOT.emu, you need to download any games you have before June, when the site closes permanently. Finally, check out Delenns thread over in the forums HERE. There are games available for free, some of which are limited to the number of free keys available. The thread is worth checking regularly as Delenn has been posting links to various freebies on a regular basis recently.

All worked out, they changed something with the twitter thing that opened up a new tab for authorization vs some popup that wouldn't go anywhere and non authenticate whatever. Key is good.

Ok, so now FB asked me if your Site tries to hack me and if everything is ok because of the many requests. Was probably over 1000 already.

Also Twitter asked me if that App i sane, because of suspicious activity.

Let's wait before Steam asks me or simply locks you out of their API.

The information you posted indicates that you have applied for multiple keys using different accounts on the IP you use. To get a key you have to use the original FB and Twitter accounts and the same name and email. Using the same FB or Twitter accounts for multiple applications will result in such messages. I've deleted your comment, it was not necessary to spam the same line 40 or more times (couldn't be bothered counting after 40)

Reply   |   Comment by Nirantali Zorvax  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Nirantali Zorvax, no certainly not, it's bugged like hell... I have only one Steam Account and only one facebook and only one twitter, but perhaps different emails... So i do the facebook tasks, and if i do the steam tasks it resets the facebook tasks and if i do teh facebook tasks it resets the steam, twitter youtube tasks, ad infinitum!!!

I done it 100 times now already, reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset, , reset,

I suppose one email was used for where there was only email and facebook, and the other was used where theer was a steam task or so, and now everything is fucked up!

You should perhaps not care, or update or let user unlink!!!!

...........................................Moderator comment...................................

As I've already mentioned elsewhere please contact the giveaway team via the contact link HERE. I don't have the appropriate admin privileges to un-link any of your accounts or emails. Explain to the team what your issue is and list the emails you have used (if you can). Hopefully someone from the tech team will be able to sort it for you. I understand it can be frustrating when things go wrong, but there really is no need to start using such language you used earlier, especially as this is a family site.

Nirantali Zorvax,

One email is linked to Facebook
A different one linked to Steam and Twitter

This is why it's bugged!

And do you know how that happens? Well, because there probably was only email + facebook in the past and one with email+steam and i simply didn't remember what i used...

So unlink everything please and i relink!

...........................................Moderator comment...................................


Please contact the giveaway team via the contact link on the front page. explain the issue and ask them to un-link your accounts so that you can start afresh. I am unable to with the admin privileges I have.
In future please refrain from using inappropriate language. If you have a problem please ask for help HERE and if it can be solved we will.

Reply   |   Comment by Nirantali Zorvax  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Nirantali Zorvax, what makes me angry is the fact they do reset the other tasks over and over instead simply updating the email used or at least provide an option like gleam.io to unlink individual accounts.

If you have to link accounts a such option is a must!

...........................................Moderator comment...................................


That would be a good idea, however, that would enable community members to reset their accounts which would then enable them to apply for multiple accounts. These steps were introduced after the first Steam keys given away here last April 2016 were farmed by some individuals then put up for sale on various Steam key sites. That is unacceptable. The point of this site is to give away games to the community, not to give them to individuals to then sell on for profit.
I think the only way to sort you issue out is for the giveaway tech team to help, which means you need to contact them via the link I've already provided elsewhere, but here it is a gain:

Reply   |   Comment by Nirantali Zorvax  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Nirantali Zorvax, well that thinking is a bit wrong, because allowing to unlink accounts doesn't mean they can apply for multiple accounts. That's only possible IF they have multiple accounts, but then it doesn't matter if they can unlink or not because they simply link multiple different accounts.

Not allowing to unlink only complicates things and leads to such bugs, especially if you don't simply update new links and then start to switch accounts on your behalf and even reset tasks.

I personally only have one Steam, Facebook but multiple Twitter and EMails and well i don't always remember which Twitter and EMail was used, so such linking without the possibility to unlink or auto updating lead to bugs like this.

In this case here, there are only two different emails, one linked to FB and the other to Steam, Twitter, Google+ etc. that can happen easily, especially if you have GAs with only FB and others with only Twitter or only Steam and then you make one where all is needed and boom everything fails!

...........................................Moderator comment...................................


The majority of community members will only have one account. Most community members are honest hard working people who just want to get the free game; unfortunately there are always those that will try to abuse the system and create multiple accounts. Over time when it became obvious that Steam keys were being farmed by some individuals, security was put in place. Unfortunately this may have affected genuine community members. The only way I can see to resolve this is to contact the giveaway team with the issue you have. Starting with a clean slate may be the best option. I cannot solve the issue you have so unless you have something to post about the game, please contact giveaway team with the issue and hopefully they will be able to solve it. As there are only 5000 keys they may be exhausted well before the giveaway ends, so I would contact them as soon as possible. If keys are exhausted, the team always try to get more, so if that does happen, key checking back in case more keys are forthcoming. In the mean time, I hope you get the issue sorted..

Nirantali Zorvax, I already contacted them longer ago, but i doubt they are able to fix it fast enough. Meanwhile i try to open 50 FB Share and 50 Steam login and and clicking each one fast. i managed to get all tasks done like this, but dunno if it really worked.

Also it's strange anyway, because now only the Steam task and FB Share switches and resets, the others seem to be done for both emails even if the other accounts are the same.

Well, i hope they unlink that email.

Reply   |   Comment by Nirantali Zorvax  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Nirantali Zorvax, I did it 4 times now, all tasks had check marks, but i didn't get anything...

The Bug also still didn't get fixed, it still switched between steam and fb over and over, but if i open about 20 windows each and click share and continue, both are done and checkmarked.

So double bugged or it's still the unfixed bug.

Reply   |   Comment by Nirantali Zorvax  –  3 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Nirantali Zorvax,

Sorry but it seems to be more bugged as supposed!

If i login with Google+ then EMail1 and Google + match of course.
If i do You Tube and Twitter Task it works, but i didn't even login with Twitter.

If i do FB Task where Email1 was used it says switched Accounts, which isn't true and kicks out Google+ and logs me in with FB?!?!?! It's an Google Email so this isn't possible to not match Google+

If i do Steam Task it kicks FB and EMail1 out and says switched Accounts and uses Email2 and logs me in with Steam!!?!?

So there is something really totally messed up.
