Text removed as the font wasn't mine, and some near-identical colour consolidation, though probably a few still on the loose.
Big images of the player ship were traced from renders of a quick-and-dirty 3d model and lighting loosely referenced from said renders.

Oh my god, that alien on the lower right, .

AtskaHeart (Level 7 Colonel) @ 1/25/2013 04:39

 Stunning piece and BGs.

Intheflesh (Level 1 Rookie) @ 9/5/2011 11:08

loving the ship sprites

Ow shit. Huge :)

 Good job!

Theoden (Level 6 SWAT) @ 9/13/2010 09:46

Great job, finished the game too :)

Victor Rojo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 8/16/2010 04:58

Awesome, I´ve tried to push start XD

jamesmorrow07 (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 2/16/2010 14:51

Holy moley!!   That's incredible!

Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 1/12/2010 20:44

EVERYTHING in this is perfect!!

Turbo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/26/2008 22:31
This is great! I love the space background, and the game over image is really catching. Played the game for a while, too, up to the final boss :)

Sporknife (Level 2 Peon) @ 6/15/2008 05:45
Did you make the final boss and the end screen (for winning) too? either way, this is awesome.

Sprites Toolbox (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/14/2008 15:08
Very nice spriting! I've also played the game to the end. Great one too.

Ndsfreak (Level 5 Soldier) @ 6/13/2008 20:09
Hmm. I suppose I should start reading the discriptions to all of the PAs I look at.

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/13/2008 18:44
Look up.

Ndsfreak (Level 5 Soldier) @ 6/13/2008 18:26
Lovely pixeling, I want to see a game from these sprites.

Adarias (Level 11 Special Agent) @ 6/13/2008 12:43
good game, pretty easy, good art, all around thumbs up :P

they should have made like a timer or something, so that your ability to purchase upgrades was based on skill rather than just time spent.  as it is, the last level wasn't any harder than the first, just more carpal tunnel >.<

skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 6/13/2008 00:57
:D just finished playing it...great graphics, great game (yes I know you just did the graphics)...

Really good job on the bg and the enemy ships, especially the ones that for some reason evolved massive arms...

Oh and the Daft Punk chick was cool too :P

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/12/2008 05:30
Wonky effect may be that I used an exaggerated FOV in an attempt to give it a feeling of rocketing along a right ungodly speed.

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 6/11/2008 18:19
Awesome work! I was going to say there was something wonky about the ship for the title screen, then read that you used 3d renders, so I guess that is with me. But then again, in 3dsmax I think things would look wonky depending on using "user" or "perspective" for views, maybe render itself could be wonky? Everything else is great

BlackDragon (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/11/2008 10:09
The graphics are ace. Love the dramatic lighting.

Pregnant_Cow (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/11/2008 08:32
I won! haha thats an awesome game, great job, nice graphics too!

SillyJonna (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 6/11/2008 02:47
Holy moly. I'm labbin' it.

Froli (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/11/2008 01:58
Haha that was fun..finished it on the first try though since It was easy with the power ups. Awesome graphics man

Arfff (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 6/11/2008 01:31
Yes, I know. But the graphics play a major role in any game. Thus, it's the part in which I'm interested.

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/11/2008 00:57
Not my game. I just did the graphics.

Arfff (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 6/11/2008 00:51
Congratulations! it surely is one of the best games of the genre I played so far :)

ceddo (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 6/10/2008 23:07
aMazing work surt!

Chaos Design (Level 3 Stalker) @ 6/10/2008 14:36
What a classic great job.

Malor (Level 4 Button Man) @ 6/10/2008 10:26
hmm beating that boss is satisfying. Now art wise, to me, I think this is the best I've seen from you, fantastic job

grave (Level 8 Marshal) @ 6/10/2008 06:54
Doesnt make it any less sexy :)

madPXL (Level 3 Hatchikyu) @ 6/9/2008 17:33
just finished it (hand pain)
very excellent game and nice girl at the end :D)

and euh, nice pixel too !

surt (Level 11 Godfather) @ 6/9/2008 16:49
Nebulae are just a few layers of interlaced dithering. Stole the idea from Squirrelsquid.

KwIjL (Level 5 Captain) @ 6/9/2008 11:07
this is crazy! nice job

Reo (Level 11 Sensei) @ 6/9/2008 09:29
Faved for sheer awesomness!

grave (Level 8 Marshal) @ 6/9/2008 09:24
Great job on this. Especialy the space background. I just love space clouds. You get a full score from me.

Beans (Level 1 Gangster) @ 6/9/2008 08:58
Nice work, game was to easy, but excellent artwork.

dumbo (Level 4 Mercenary) @ 6/9/2008 06:05

Mindsreturn (Level 3 Private Eye) @ 6/9/2008 05:37
I agree with all those who posted prior to this. Menus look good too.

Peach (Level 6 Made) @ 6/9/2008 03:43
I agree with souly! damn good!

Souly (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 6/9/2008 02:42
Yes the alien boarding the ship is FTW.

Metaru (Level 8 Brigadier General) @ 6/9/2008 02:40
the bottom right picture(wich i assume is the game over screen) is pure win.
