I frickin' love the music in this game.
A good concept, but... The graphics
are good but this is offset by the
poor choice of color pallets. In the
Space Invaders style areas the
players ship and the enemies shots
are easily lost amidst the background.
The controls also feel a bit mushy
and in the pong style stage, counter
Sound effects are non existent and
what music there is becomes
repetitive very quickly.
Just beat the version 1.01 of
Lodestar, straight from the website!
It comes with a few fixes and
tuneups, and I was actually able to
beat the whole game this time. It
was extremely fun. The only thing
that this game is missing is a little
bit of polishing, and perhaps an
extra fun factor to boost. While the
changing of gameplay is a major plus
(and a huge heart pumper!), I believe
some tweaking and additions to each
game would do some good.
The current version of the game has
a serious gameplay problem in stage
4. Basically, the game is
unplayable there and that has to be
penalized. I forgot to mention that
in the description since it was a
last minute discovery. If properly
corrected, the game is 13/20
material too me.
The staff rating here is too low. A
game with only one minigame will get
a higher score. The major fault of
this game? A lack of progress. When
you beat one mini game, you should be
able to go back to the last one you
beat. You can't in this game, sadly.
It could also use some polishing.
