Greetings

 

Use the arrow keys, Z to fire gun, X to dodge bullets.

 Use arrows to select level / aircraft and Enter to confirm.

Blue lines = checkpoints/ respawn points. This is what you gotta get

HOW TO PLAY:

SO, I thought this might be difficult to notice, but you need to hold 'up' in order to actually move forward through the levels. You can see your actual movement speed in comparison to the background scan lines.

You need to try and advance through the stages by getting past each checkpoint. Player and allies respawn at last checkpoint.

 

Music and voices by Jack King-spooner

I should work on this more, I don't feel like it deserves all of Jack's awesome musics and the game relies on it pretty much anyway.

Ah, another game from the master of the weird and contemplative, Jake Clover. And even better still is the fact that for this next game, he’s joined up once again with the similarly minded Jack King-Spooner, who provides his voice and the music, as he’s done previously for some of Jake’s games.

Very fun and challenging game. The movement is smooth, and the music is awesome. 4/5

That was cool! I loved the music and sound, but it did't quite fit the game, which i didn't love as much... Confusing!

thankyou. sorry for the 4 billion year delayed reply, I'm glad you loved the music because I do as well and Jack's music is amazing. I personally thought it tied interestingly with the visuals and created an interesting vibe with the plane theme. there isn't much to the game itself anyway and it pretty much relies on the music

Yeah, I had a feeling it relied on the music, which is cool in a way, also disturbing in a way... anyway it seems Jack is a great musician! :)

Great feel to it, I enjoyed playing. Reminds me of those classic top down shmups. I definitely was caught up in the moment when playing this, smoke trails left and right. With holding Z to fire the gun, it could have had an affect on the player, e.g. overheating, slower movement speed or unable to dodge. Probably could have added more strategy to it.

We need an option to play Ride of the Valkyries instead of Jack's queer shit.

I loved it. Reminded me of Mother Fucker Galaxy:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qO5NibKpoxA

It was hypnotizing having the planes falling out of the sky left and right...
It was brutal, and yet I zoned out from the representation of violence... it felt like an exploration of PTSD.

I'm wondering, was this your intention?

hmm not specifically, but I thought the game might have an interesting effect with Jack's music

this is a fucking materpiece. The dark-kitsch ambientation, the brutal warfare, the level speechs, the jack strange music,the moving weird backgrounds and the gameplay are in perfect combination. Really good work jake

Interesting presentation, also I like the control of the shoot direction, but somehow the game feels very unresponsive and unfinished. I just fly to the next checkpoint and shoot and dodge. I know most shmups are like that, but they make you feel special, and in this game you feel like one in a million.

Hm interesting. Yeah, I was trying to make it feel as if you're just one kinda insignificant part of your squadron, and it seems that's worked but I think you're right about needing something else to fill in the space for the player not being the centre of attention.
