Looks great! Are the enemies ghosts? or do you control them all at once?

This is capture from replays - so yes, they are ghosts.

Sorry dude, you did a good work but I just hate when someone rip-off another indie developer. Can't you be more original in your sprite\graphics style? You're ripping off Star Guard completely and you're doing it on purpose....

Hey! I've already admit here and there that Star Guard was one of my inspirations where comes to gfx style. So it is not a secret! It is common in gamedev industry that we "borrow" ideas from each other, then expand and rebuild them. I love Star Guard, and I wanted to create something bigger, with quite different 'fast paced' gameplay, and mobile - to play on the go. I haven't rip any of the sprites - but of course, there is not many options of "pixel placement" on such small "pixel-zoom" level, so similarities can't be avoided. Especially with similar background or tile color. For example I've experimented with different 'ground' style - but everything leads to conclusion that plain yellow is the best, etc....

As I said - I love Star Guard, and I'm grateful for this inspiration! Don't judge from gfx style only and from game type - gameplay is different! I've hope you will see it soon ;)
