Description

2D-Arcade Shooter for casual gamers and veterans.
Choose one of two totally different player ships and fight your way through the incoming alien attack to save the human race. A lot f features are waiting for you. You can see more in the trailer or in the gameplay video.

To celebrate 15 years of DoveZ we are selling the game here for 0€ (limited offer) and release a new patch (1.7). It will fix a crash on Windows 10 and it will rebalance the Super Nova of the red ship: after using a Super Nova you will no longer lose a full option, but all weapon upgrades for this option.

Secrets

Here are a list of secrets and lessons learned in all the years:

  • Playing in the game in the window-mode will give you a funny quote in the title of the window. They are partly from our users in the old forum we had. :)
  • Pressing F11 will blow your horn.
  • Pressing F11 and 1 at the same time you will skip a level (but you will lose all your points).
  • Pressing F11 and 2 at the same time you will be invincible for a few seconds (but you will lose all your points).
  • Pressing F4 will show the hit-points of the enemies (a DOVE homage).
  • Playing through the game many times will change the game:
    • After the first play-through you will get a bonus level in the options menu named jungle. It's the level that was part of the demo.
    • After the second play-through you will get a bonus level in the options menu named space and a animated ending and a bonus ending. Space was our test-level for the Gamescom.
    • After the third play-through you will get the Bleistift bonus level. It was there to test the limits of our level-editor.
  • The was a planned third ship with a complete different mechanic. In the levels you would collect gold and upgrade your ship in a shop between levels. There is a way to check some weapon systems we designed for this ship. If you start the game with the parameters -Skip -Level Level1-1 Skyfight, you will get two dialog boxes and have to press cancel in the second one.
  • Never trust a publisher. Publish a game by yourself on steam or other platforms.
