Description

This is a "not Shoot'Em up" game. The mechanic works like an inverted "Space Invaders". The player starts on a space ship at the top of the screen and need to constant evade enemy shot. The 3 lives to endure a match is represented by different player graphics phases: Entire Ship, Broken Ship, Alone in the Space (Cowboy). In order to score points, the player must collect energy that constantly appears on screen and when the energy gauge is full (GUI), a beep sound together with the space ship shinning will enable the player to touch the screen to descend(fall) and score 1 point - approaching the bottom part of the screen increases the difficulty. Reaching the enemy will automatically kill it and a star will appear. Collecting these stars enable purchase of space ship phases or even new ships. After killing the last enemy on screen, a new stage will start. After 2 common stages, a boss will appear and kick the player ass.

History

You are Spacy, a space cowboy who runs out of gas and ammo in space. To survive you need to grab anything that wanders around. The cool thing about space is the encounters you can make. When the players die, the game over screen show random Spacy Encounters. Spacy has no gender defined.
