Thanks for the in-depth check into the game. I''ve put quite a few interesting weapons and power-ups in there. Which ones did you like best? From some of the feedback I''ve gotten from friends, the defense pods are a big hit, as well as the weapon pods and the grappling hook. As per your question about freeware, right now the game is freely downloadable as a demo version. In the future I might make it shareware, we''ll see. Thanks for the positive feedback, helps keep me motivated to finish all the details of the project!

I''m currently in the process of adding more content, including more background objects, storyline, and mission objectives. That should be done very soon. Also in the process of making levels, but that seems to have been set back by mission objectives work and so on. More levels coming soon!

Cheers,

roger_hq

Congratulations on an extremely good game. It fan fine on my comp without any problems at all, here''s my specs:

AthlonXP 2800 2.1 gig
Radeon 9200 128 MB
512 MB RAM
XP Pro

On the installer issue i would think that for a game of this size - the ~15 meg download, it would benefit from using an installer which isn''t hard to do now with the free software around to create professional installers/uninstallers for you

Thanks for trying the game and posting your system specs! That helps tremendously knowing what rigs and configurations it runs on. So far I haven''t run into many hardware problems, but you never know!

I think I will offer it as an installer version when I''m done. I have the free version of InstallShield that came with DevStudio 6.0, but I think its a seriously hamstrung version, so I''ll definately look into other free ones out there. Any suggestions on a good one, or are they all pretty much the same?

A note on progress:
Introductory storyline complete, mission objectives screens complete, and more content has been added. I am currently working on more levels now (phew!) and should have a version 0.9.3 ready for download.

Thanks for all the feedback, keep it coming!

Cheers,

roger_hq

Ive experimented with Inno Setup Compiler which is dead easy to use with the script wizard (and is free to boot), there are a few others around Inno is the only one ive tried.
