Longshot is a game about space combat. The majority of the gameplay is dueling with other ships, flying maneuvers with allies and destroying the enemy. You play a merc either for the humans or the aliens. There are six ships on each side, two of each of three different classes. There are four weapon types and two missile types. There is a central base which can be captured to allow you to build automated defense turrets. The purpose of the game is either to destroy the enemy base or hold the central base long enough to win.

In the brand new horde mode, you take control of a ship on the human side. You start with the lightest ship available, but can spend money to upgrade ships or run to the central base (already captured) and build up turrets and platforms to defend against the incoming hordes of aliens.

In the full release this mode is available as a co-op. The high scores will track how far you survived before your base it finally destroyed.

Alright, this is not really my type of game I feel, but damnit if you don't deserve my purchase when you are practically giving it away for free.
I can only hope this benefits you in the long run. :)

Actually just gave it a play.
Not bad at all for a 5$ game, and certainly not bad for a 5 cent game. :)
I will hope this offer will bring people to the multiplayer. :)

Same here!

And to top it off, it looks like a pretty neat game!

EDIT> I can't believe PayPal offered me "Bill Me Later" on a 5 cent purchase...
