We affectionately call it 'buddy'. But blue ass of death is certainly rather quaint too :lol:

Yay. I finally not die in the 3 rounds. 45356. Even Jawa can beat that I'm sure.

Yeah. But I've had points where I've reached low health and then out of nowhere I'm gone. It would happen so quick I dont know what caused it. Makes it tricky to learn how to improve when you don't know what happened.

Are the power ups random? Some things appear and disappear very quickly. Most of the time if I collect anything its because its right there in front of me but some seem to be always out of touch.

Maybe you're just getting too old for fast games now :toot:

But actually that's not a bad score at all.

Weapon power-ups are obtained from the 'powerdroids' which sometimes fly past in the middle of an enemy formation (see help screen for what they look like).

Other power capsules can float up after hitting a target - they give things like energy recharge, smart bomb, invincibility etc.

Alienoids fly down from the screen with a special siren noise - they will boost your multiplier to max and give you a big score boost. They also contribute to your skill bonus (amongst many other attributes).

Keep playing...

We just hit 75% of our goal Woop! Thanks GRcade for the tweets.

The full game has 12 levels, they get larger as the game progresses. Every level introduces a new element or twist on an existing one. There may be more levels added yet.

Also in the final game there are a number of challenges (medals) for each level.

The Kickstarter funding has passed the £12k mark on the journey to the £15k goal! It has been a terrific start but I think it may still take a push to get us over the line.

If you're unsure about supporting the project, remember that there there is a free game demo available for PC and Mac that you can try out!

> View the mini trailer - use your eyes to see the sensational retro-inspired blasting!
> Check out the Kickstarter - there are options for all pocket sizes!
> Download the FREE demo for PC or Mac - play through three action-packed levels!

Thanks for the push Jawa. We need to keep momentum up to get the last 3k

TWA, level 1,2 and 5. Level 6 onwards start to increase the heat.

So there is a chance I can go 5 levels without dying? :toot:

MHTL - awesome score!
TWA - in the final game you'll be able to select levels, so you'd be able to start game from level 5 - obviously you'll sacrifice a leaderboard hi-score, but it means playing every level will be doable for everyone.

The Kickstarter funding pace has slowed just a little and it'd be great if folk were able to inject an energy boost by signing up to the project. C'mon, GRcadians, lets help to carry this baby over the line! Currently there are 331 backers and the funding stands at £12, 416. Join us as we blast pixels, yell "TUNE!" and get totally Hyper!
