Space Arcade: The Game

I appreciate the specificity of Space Arcade: The Game's subtitle. I was seriously worried for a couple minutes that I was going to have to deal with Space Arcade: The Hit Broadway Musical. However, as much as I crave toe-tappin' hits and elaborate choreography, I enjoy Galaga-inspired pixel shooter action even more. This appears to be music-meister Matt McFarland's debut game release, and it's so much fun that maybe he should consider quitting his day job.

Thanks a bunch for reviewing my game. I had no idea it would do so well! Considering I couldn't find a sponsor for it on FGL, I feel I'm not the only one :) If enough people make custom levels I'm considering adding a community level pack to the game. In the mean time, I'll be working on releasing more games in the near future.

This is *excellent* - I've not quite got platinum medals on 2 of the last few levels but did so for the others.

Whether or not certain weapons could be classified as making things too easy is moot since there are always levels which will challenge the player.

I also was never a fan of the original Space Invaders (though I am from that era). This rendition is a lot of fun however.

5/5 from me without hesitation

Great game!

I just cannot get 100% on the last level. I've played through 3 times without noticing any enemies escaping...who's getting through?

This is top notch mate! Unbelievable you couldn't find a sponsor for this gem on FGL, maybe you haven't been patient enough?

Anyway, next time make sure your game has been approved by CPM before launching. It's just saying "Advertisment working", instead of showing an ad. So I guess you're losing money there :-)

Back to the game. Level 18 is killing me.

Also, next game, wait for CPM to approve your game before launching. It's just showing the CPM approval message now, so that probably means you're not getting any money :-(

Comment for the developer: On one level I killed every last enemy but was killed by a stray shot at the end and it said Level Failure! but it gave me a platinum medal anyway.

Seems wrong.

@Matt and those expressing surprise at lack of a sponsor: I haven't been able to find a sponsor for my most recent game either. I contacted the guy who sponsored my last one and he told me that he's taken a huge loss on all the games he's sponsored recently and isn't really in a position to sponsor any more.

Ads have been steadily paying less and less money over the years, and I think we're finally reaching the point where it becomes impossible to make even a semblance of a living under the ad-supported model.

Consumers may soon have to get used to paying for their entertainment again, whether directly (preferable) or through the bait-and-switch of "free to play" (more likely, but ethically questionable).

The game was finished in february of this year, and it had no interest from sponsors on FGL. 0 bids, 0 trackers. I really thought it was a flop, but then over the weekend as a complete whim I decided to throw it up on kong and NG. The rest is history :P

As far as the ad failure, yeah I really screwed up on that one! Haven't seen a single penny and probably wont. I'll chalk that off as experience for the next one!

Thanks for playing!

Hi, nice game. If anyone happens to screw up and reset their progress like I did, there is a fairly quick way to make cash fast.

Keep playing level 19 with just one attractor upgrade and get the power up, then get $6000 to get the 2nd best weapon then it's pretty quick to get $10,000 for the best weapon

Worked for me. CHEERS!
