It's better than my 2D space shooter :P

One thing though, does it need so many title screens? Couldn't it be cut down to 1-2 screens?

Nice game, indeed! Many people claim they develop games, but they hardly complete the games they start. Yours is an exception, you polished it and deserves credit for it.

I would also add that the enemies' movement is a bit "unnatural", to say the least. Try to add some AI for them, it will improve your game a lot!

Congratulations!

It looks like you haven't see level 2, on level 1 the enemies indeed mostly moving in straight line.

Well, all the title screens is skipable isn't it? :)

We'll see about that.

And for Talroth, try out the download one, applet sometimes is not friendly stuff.

Might wanna remove the exit option on the applet too, unless this is supposed to happen:

Hmm that's suppose to be not throwing exception eedok.
When pressing exit option on applet game, the game will be convert the image into gray using ColorConvertOP class and tell the game has been finished.
And from the exception, looks like the ColorConvertOP operation to make it gray that failed, hmm I guess I will just use try catch in there.
Thanks for the report.

Yup this one is based on a commercial shooter game.

Thanks for the feedback.
