In this case, pixel art is not to say that the game looks like from the 90's, there is just a deliberate pastiche with modern effects and lighting.
GameplayControl of the game has been decided to make a very simple, the player only controls flying left and right, and the shots spaceship is automatic. All in the game three difficulty levels, each of which increases or decreases the number of lives and the ability to withstand a direct hit. For example, on the easiest "Casual", before we burn one life, we can withstand direct hits 4.3.
The first level begins with the classic asteroids that fly at us with all speed. From them, you can dodge, but you can on the contrary, seek to destroy, the more that are hidden inside the money and points. Then we start to fight with different alien beings, who can shoot, attack in melee combat and regroup his troops. After 10 episodes we get to the boss fights where you may use a maximum of skill and speed.
