Got this last night and played it for 20 minutes before bed once it hit midnight - managed to get 2nd on the 1B leaderboard thanks to playing it straight after release :P

On the bus this morning I played a couple more levels, the bosses in world 3 seem to be a good step up!

Are the powerups completely random? Runs at levels seem to go very differently depending on what powerups I manage to grab - especially if you luck out on the twin lasers. It seems to take a good 20 seconds to kill a turret with ordinary fire (and constant dodging), but get a laser and they're done in 1 or 2. I can see that making a big difference to high-scores.

I'm also not sure exactly how the overall score works - do you have to play through the game arcade style without stopping to keep it totaling up? I kept quitting back to the menu so I could look at the medals and leaderboards, which kept giving me a final score.

There's a multiplier in the top left hand corner, you increase it by shooting things in quick succession, or you can hit one of those flashing alien things to boost it straight up to 32x. It decreases when you get hit or don't shoot something for a while. Keep it maxed as long as possible.

There's also bonuses for Skill and Time handed out at the end of the level, they're pretty self explanatory.

I mean the score that is tracked across multiple levels, and displayed on the menu screen

Glad you’re enjoying guys.

The overall score is based on how long you can keep going. If you die in a level and retry, your score resets.

How do you get the medal for 'survive the alien surge'?

I think the surge is when the load of purple aliens swarm in? It stops after a while, maybe you're completing the level too quick

Yeah that's probably it. I'm rattling through the medals pretty quickly and that was the first one that had me stumped.

The music and sound effects really are lovely. With it's neo retro styling, the game looks and feels so good.

Edit: Pedz is live-streaming the game right now!

And bought on Switch. Buy yourself something pretty Starquake with your cut of the deal (probably about 35p once Nintendo takes it's cut).

Nice to see you diving in for shooting action, Rex :toot: .


I wonder if, in the future, Huey games may explore physical editions?

Had a quick blast on the Switch. Definitely feels like Uridium from my zx spectrum era! Happy days.

I’ll be joining switch leaderboards tonight ... :datass:

I’ll set a survival time for others to beat as well.

Microsoft have lined up lots of streamers for us over the next few days, so keep an eye on mixer and hop on to play. You just need a browser.

I've definitely got better at this, and all the world 3 bosses are excellent!

It's fun seeing GRcade names up on the leaderboards too B)
