still has a lot to work on... first of all... flicker - very annoying. View.Update it.

Now shoting... 1 bullet at a time sucks. You defenatly need more. You can slow down fire speed over time to prevent users from just permenantly holding the button down.

and shields act weird... asteroyds just pass though you when you got your shield on. Asteroyd and ship should bounse off like pool balls instead

well i realy like the game and i think the idea is good but there are some game play isues.

1. you can get killed like 5 times in a row b4 you even spawn, may be make the ship invicable for like 5 secs b4 after it spawns

2. shit key is bad for fire, hiting it 5 times luachs some apps in some apps on xp Razz

3. make the keys the more noraml, may be mover up arow and spin left left, and spin right right and fire space bar.

4. make it so you loop around when you hit the egeng rather then bounc

alougth over all i realy like this, it is hard but some times thats good in a game. realy like the phzics in it and the exposions. shiled idea is good too. but whould be a bit more fun if it was easer, like smaller rocks and more shiled time.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I think I can try to address most of the issues you commented on. Hackerdan, I too thought the space bar was a good button for shoot, however I could not find the code to use it in conjunction with Input.KeyDown. it says something like (ORD_Space) but that doesn't seem to work. How can I solve this?

P.S did any of you get past the second level and see the upgrades?

Another vote for Dan's suggestion #4. How many rubber walls do you see in space?

Ok, I added a few of the suggestion you guys had to my game:

1. Controls are now changed (see text file)
2. You don't bounce of the sides anymore
3. You are now invincible for about 5 sec when you spawn
4. Improved shield collision detection slightly
5. Shield bar increased

If you find any glitches please let me know, thanks.

great impovements but i still got inuses with what keys you uses for conotorls, alt + some keys dose stuff on my comp like alt + space bar so if you dont let go of alt b4 you hit another key it brings up a menu and if you miss the alt key you hit the windows key that birngs up the start menu.

but that is easy to chage. i whould sugest may be c, x, s, or d insted of al b/c they are close to spcae bar and are not ushley aisgined to fuctions.

P.S. i was finaly aable to beat level one and i realy like the wepaonds upgarde idea.

Post subject:  Horohoro...hahahawkawh awhah harf

I need only say one thing though i may say more, My quote shall bring shame to this identification.

"Let's see you do better"

...and now, to suport that, may I remind you all that this game is a testament to my faith. It is the greatest of its time, and none shall surpass it. O and by the way, YOUR GAY, your stupid....your a 5 year old whos big brother let him on the internet, and just gave him the chance to display his stupiditiy. Who calls things gay?? how can a game be gay unless its a game about men dating...hahaha someone should do that, I vote horohoro, he's got all the "gay" info, baw hahahaha address that other insult...which was amied directly at me!

yeah..."Hacker Dan" YOU make little to no "secen", your existance makes little to no sense, and your spelling skills not only make no sense but they are non existent you...guy. And the Devil guy...i donno who that "='s" maybe its a variable kinda like...insert name here. Why you gotta drag Tony in to this, Tony's my hero we go way back, back to the old days. oh...oh wait what if this--> Twisted Evil is the devil guy huh?....jerk, I just dont see why you have to go outside and do that, what'd i ever do to you man? post a reply?? thats my internet given right, you insult me my friend, but its all good you know how stuff works, perhaps you seek not forgiveness,but, yet seek and you shall find, for your grievances may be non.

AHAHAHAHAHA..........This is very funny, I think someone is seriously PMSing (sorry, if that was offensive to the ladies out there)

oh, and what's your name? Jeez, learn to take an insult, and the fact that Dan wasn't insulting you made this so much more funnier. Calm down man, chill out, no need to get all emotional here, we are all just some programmers trying to display their skills in programming, so why you got to be like this coming here and cause a scene?

Going back reality, I think that this is a good game with loads of potential. I think a good View.Update wouldn't hurt, or is someone to lazy to change their code? Laughing
