Planet Defender

Version 1.3

***GRIFFIN'S GAMES*** PLANET DEFENDER (1st level)

Play a great Space-Shooter-Game as work in progress which will be continuously enhanced!
You are the Captain of a Space-Fighter jet. The task is to fight the alien ships. But beware, in addition to the pink alien spaceships, and besides the faster green Boss-ships which are chasing you later on in the game, there are Asteroids flying around in random directions, which kill you at once.

Since today's vers. 1.2.1 I have implemented an Energy-tower which sends high-energy beams to the player's spaceship giving a momentary shield to the ship and each time a one-point health upgrade. The tower is sending these beams every 5 sec. However, you must be in a straight line to the beam to get your shields reinforced or the energy-beam misses you.
Fast action and tactical behavior is therefore crucial for your success.
A space shooter with the potential to challenge you.

    Hi Potato23,
    It's controlled by the arrow keys in 8 directions, aiming by pointing the mouse, shooting LMB.

    Nice game! You should add support for WASD, it's quite difficult to use the mouse and the arrow keys like that :P. Well done though!:)

    Thanks for the input CormacWT. Yes indeed, I was also thinking about that. The problem is, as Ashley mentioned in a forum thread, there are a lot of different keyboard layouts in the world, WASD is only one of them, still for sure one of the important ones. Arrow keys are on all keyboards the same for everybody.

    OK guys, vers. 1.2.2 of PLANET DEFENDER is out now.

    WASD implemented now! Enjoy!

    WASD is supported now.
