The vertical shooter that turn scribbles into spaceship and doodles into Death Stars is back for another round in Notebook Space Wars 2, by Francisco Ferreres. Not a revolution for Notebook Wars fans, but superior to its predecessors and a good time all the same.

Is it just me, or does upgrading weapons past Level 2 have no effect?

I will grant that this version is better than the previous incarnations, but I still have some major issues with it:
1) Stage Blandness: Whether it be the Asteroid Belt, Mars, Saturn, or Earth, I couldn't tell from the stages. It's all the same backdrop. Tip: Next version, work on your stages. No two stages should look alike, nor should they be repetitive within the stages. If I'm traveling to Mars, I want to know it. Start Stage 4 leaving that nebula, and finish it entering the Mars upper atmosphere.
2) Too Easy: I beat all the levels, including the Xtreme ones, without breaking a sweat. Weapons are far too overpowered, and enemies are predictable and don't fire enough. Bosses don't provide a challenge. Tip: Balance the game so that Hard is actually Hard, even with the best weapon.
3) Survival isn't Survival, merely Endless. After getting around $630k, the enemies stopped getting "harder" and reset to the beginning. I quit when I saw that. There isn't even a Badge to strive for, "Killed X number of enemies in Survival." Tip: Develop an algorithm so that enemies can increase in frequency, movement speed, hp, weapon strength, and firing speed as you go.
4) Epilogue: Where is the payoff? No "Congratulations, you beat the game, the Earth is saved!" no "Arrrrghhh, I'm dead!" from the Emperor, just a "You beat the level," same as all the others, and that's it. Tip: Ending cutscene. If we're going to play through the campaign, there needs to be a reason to do so, and that reason (since the beginning of time) has been the congratulations for a job well done. At the very least, give us a badge for completing the game, separate from the "Get all the Stars" badge.

Had fun but... What??? At least a small "congratulations" is in order. Or something to let me know that the game is over. Anti-climactic is an understatement.
