Any particular price range you're looking for?

The built in alphaFunc is gone in GL20 because you're expected to replicate it in shader with the 'discard' keyword.

Basically at some point in your fragment shader you'll have:

float alphaMin = 0.1;
if(color.a < alphaMin) { discard; }

This achieves the same effect as alpha testing.

I might have tried it if there was a free version, you're asking an awful lot for people to pay for your game to give you feedback. Of course it's your right to charge for it, but if you look around on this forum most free games don't even get any comments, much less paid ones.

Nice job, congratulations on your release. Tried it out for a few minutes, here's my thoughts:
  • Music and graphics are nicely done, give it a nice polished feel.
  • Sometimes advertisements pop up on top of the text boxes, making them impossible to read. I don't disparage a few ads in a free game, but it shouldn't be actively blocking the gameplay/interface.
  • I like the theme of the music, but the loop that plays during the main game seems very short so it's noticibly repetetive. Maybe some more variation wouldn't be so tedious.
  • The battle animation could use a little work, it's hard to tell who is doing what. Maybe show projectiles coming from a ship, or show the counterattacks better. It's a good idea that you display the action chosen on both side before the actual ship animation, but it disappears really fast and is gone before I can even understand the information that it's telling me.

Otherwise I think a nice job for an independent game, great work!

Not sure if you're aware, but I'm getting warned by my browser about insecure SSL certificate to dl.dropbox.com when I try to play your game. It doesn't seem to happen on other Kongregate games.

Might want to look into that, as I'll guess it's a pretty strong turnoff to a casual player.
