I've been working on this project for quite a while now.
It's just an old fashioned shoot them up and I'm intending to put it into it's own arcade cabinet.
If anyone would like to try it out then please feel free.
If you get over 50k then you should get on the high score list.
Feedback is always welcome.

I doubt there'll be any copyright issues or anything but "Alien Swarm" is the name of a 2d top down game by Valve. I would recommend that you rename your game, if just to avoid confusion.

Thanks for the heads up. This will be the 2nd time the game's been renamed!

I tried coming up with a few new name choices but it's quite difficult:
  • Solar Swarm? - turns out to be a band
  • Moon Base Alpha? - already a game
  • Last Stand? - film
  • Last Base - or has that got sexual connotations?
  • Solar System Defence - too long
  • Moon defence - ??
  • I'm getting desperate now...

Just had a go and found it quite addictive. I think that you have got the balance between being too easy and being too hard just right. All in all, it's a nice revamp of arcade games. Smiley
