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!
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!
Can we have the pico8 cart added to the downloads please?
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!
ayo aktane? pog
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!
