Yeah, this is my first real game I''ve worked on that is original, meaning it isn''t a clone. It is currently in Beta testing which means you might find some bugs, but it is pretty fun. Heck, I made the game (not by myself), and I still get a kick out of playing it. The site is http://mastersoftware.4mg.com/ It was actually a 4-man team that made this game, not just me, so it is pretty cool.

Hi there!

Just downloaded your game, it''s good but has some things you might want to change:

First thing I noticed is your game doesn''t play the midi files...why? maybe something wrong with my sound card? I use directsound with my own game and it works fine..Ack! forget about it, that was due it wasn''t correctly configured =D

The other point is the control.. sometimes when you rotate a little the ship doesn´t change its direction, it just keeps going the last direction it recognized.

And some enemies just don''t detect you, you can pass around them all day - or til the time runs out =) - and they won''t move...this happened in the third level.

But I must admit its a good game, nice graphics and runs fast..by the way im running it in:
Pentium III
128 ram
tnt2 32mb video card
crappy sound card

Keep the good work!!

Hasta luego!

Thanks for the compliments. The music should play so I don''t know what''s wrong. I didn''t use directmusic since I don''t think that came with DX 5.0. I used windows library functions. As for robot detection, they can only see in front of them.
