Plays great! Graphics look great! My two bits of feedback:

 

-The red stars/planets/things in the background layer look a little too much like some of the projectiles. Maybe pick a different color scheme for those?

 

-Discovered while I turned aside to type this, please let us Pause the game 🙂

- demo graphics were made for demo, the 5 worlds graphics for final version are designed to be less colorfull then the sprites, even if it is a pity knowing it runs in CRY. we tried to take care of this point as i had the same issue while testing.

- no pause, full stress, that's the game ( and i am very bad at it :) )

 

thanks for testing !

In love Galaga and your version is great. I love the idea of the 'fat' space craft instead of the double one.

The speed is fantastic only (and that's really my only point) the background could be a bit dimmer so the enemy shots are better visible.

I had a great time playing a few rounds on this one yesterday. My highest was 11030 after the 3 stages before it ends. 

 

I 100% agree with Cubanismo that the red dots/stars/planets when they pass by look like bullets. The bullets kind of get lost in the mix of the stars passing by. Maybe larger bullets or a brighter color to them to stand out, lime green even as if they are lasers.

thanks a lot for the stream

 

as i said, final 5 worlds have other graphics, so i think ennemy shots are easier to see

but with all the sprites on screen on further levels, you will have a lot more things to avoid :)

 

You're welcome Eric! The 3 level demo looks to be a great representation of what's to come for the game and I can't wait to play it on the show when it's ready!
