I love the visuals, and the parallax scrolling is great. Gameplay wise, I believe it's lacking a little bit. The ship seems too big for the large enemy bullets, and the bullets coming from the top of the screen are confusing. Nice job.
All graphics and no gameplay ??? COOL im happy with that being a 90s kid :P i should make it known the hit box for the ship is the hull not the masts ect, thanks for the comment :) working on it , great to see your game, have some healthy competition now. Im working on bullet patterns atm.
Thanks, i just completed it with a score of 4200 :D just takes a bit of mouse control and restraint, people try to rush around too quick. Time to design another backdrop (goonies style cave) Post scores if you want ! i just submitted this build for arcade
new version http://www.kongregate.com/games/railslave/aliens-vs-pirateers with soundtrack (in part) you now have 2 minutes to collect as many gems as you can. It seems harder than it is, theres always a way out
