Sorry folks... I've had to remove the link to the download.

just gotta write back. awesome game.!

highscore right now is around 250,000 but i'm still working on the controls. without dual analog joy, im' working up good mouse keyboard combo, and i read a tip somewhere that the best is mousemove, keyboard shoot, and they were right. you can outrun your own bullets if you use mouse move (high sensitivty) which has helped me ALOT.

on a dual analog joy, can you outrun your own bullets?

added screenshot of me dying. I had some more impressive screenshots, but I failed to keep them in the buffer.

kev you gotta tell me if the analog joy can outrun the mouse

you know a game is good when it inspires me to spend cash. I got a P990 for $20. seemed reasonable. dual analog sucks compared to pure mouse. I like the game pad, and glad I got it, but gridwars is still better with a high resolution mouse. I broke 600,000 pts with the mouse tonight.

sorry for no reply, worked about 26 hours this weekend. mouse is probably better, as i cannot even come close to outrunning my own bullets with the controller, as you've found out. your high score is WAY beyond mine. impressive. how long were you alive for?
