- Repair Locator (for when you're busy dodging hellfire!)

- Boss Healthbars (yay!)

- Score differential (how close are you to beating your high score?)

- 5 Scores saved on cart - PERMANENTLY!

- Restart Run in Menu (For when the run is forfeit.. :( )

- Reset Scores in Menu (For no reason at all)

"a bit harder" he said. I feel like it's way harder now! But it's so good, all of the improvements carried over from infinite are great. 21,434 is my best so far, haven't managed to clear it yet

Ok went back and played the original, then this one again, and managed to clear it  (46717) now I can unclench my butthole

Hahaha! Yess! Awesome job!! And thank you of course for the kind words, yeah maybe a bit (more) harder than expected hehe. Looks like you went back and used original to remember the level layout and then used that knowledge to come back and crush D+! Nice strat!!!

got 13704! this is such a good game :)

aw dang, thanks so much! that means a lot comin from an up and coming dev star like yourself

The concept of the game is just so genius! this could have been like a cave game if you expanded it! And also, tysm!

although you should defenitly do something about this hideous font >.<

Verygoodprofessional ;)

sank you! <3

Hey finally got got a decient score

righteous score my dude! Ggs!!!

Love the game, aktane!! I'm obsessed with it and getting on the leaderboard! >:) I love that the controls are easy but the game is a great challenge.

Go get em! I know you can do it! The video I linked on the itch page, has some high scoring runs if you need some strats! Thanks for the kind words on the game ❤️

This game is freakin AWESOME Aktane - seriously fun, addictive and scorechasingly-superb. Caravan modes got me started playin shmups and this is right up there!

<3 thanks scowsh! appreciate it

Wow, tough game. Love the music though!

Welcome and thanks for playing! It might be a little tough but I hope that if people stick with it, they find their progress swift 😄 I think I should probably put the OST out on Bandcamp... Because it feels like people are jammin!

Well out of my confort zone, but it feels very smooth and I suspect is a wonderful game. 

As a total beginner I'm just overwhelmed with the amount of things onscreen at once and can't focus on any but after holding down both fire buttons it did get easier for me.

Awesome!!! I'm glad you got some enjoyment, you're probably further along in the game than you think, I appreciate you trying it out even though it isnt in your genre of comfort!

Hey Gio! Long time. Hope you enjoyed the game!

nice work, and also pretty tough.

It might be a little rough at first, if you find it TOO tough, try holding down both buttons so the EX auto deploys, and play aggressively... you can do it! Use EX to buy space to grab the repair!

It took me quite a few replays to 'get it'. This is a great game, love it!

Ggs! So happy you stuck with it and got the clear :) thanks for playing ❤️
