Duke of Alpha Centuri is a space shooter with amazing graphics. The main goal of our game is to have a lot of fun while blowing up hordes of different types of enemies.
Engage in boss fights, upgrade your ship and ship systems until you are able to show off in an endless mode. The game is designed to fit any player, from the beginners all the way to the skilled ones.
And also It has different difficulty settings to make it more challenging.
The game is featuring different and unique levels. Each level and enemy is carefully designed and programmed to give you as much fun as possible. Every level looks amazing, with beautiful space graphics.
Every time you level up, you unlock one system upgrade point. For every 10 levels you are able to unlock more ship upgrades.
The Player has two different types of weapons: mechanical (bullets and missiles) and energy weapons (plasma bullets and lasers). They are powered from different power sources so keep in mind to upgrade them both. Missiles and lasers are activated when the player targets enemies with an auto guided system. You can change your target at any time.
Besides weapons, the player has 2 more ship abilities: holoemiters and system overload. Holoemiters are used to boost your damage and projecting 3 or 5 holodrones, so that you can damage enemies more quickly. System overload is a technology that combines nanorobots and high temperature plasma reactions to recharge shields, weapons power supply or to repair your ship's hull.
Your ship has a defense shield installed. If it fails, be careful that you don't get critical hull breach, because your reactor core will explode and destroy your ship.
Duke of Alpha Centuri has 13 different enemies, each one with 3 different styles which gives them a complete diversity.
Enemies are equipped with different types of weapons (plasma weapons, photon weapons, lasers, missiles) and some of them have cloaking technology, so be careful when they appear.
Bosses are quite unique and use all kinds of foul tricks to destroy the player. You will encounter some asteroids.
Be careful when flying near them because your shields can't block them, so they will hit you directly.
Duke of Alpha Centauri is a horizontal space shooter that allows you to level up and improve your ship systems over time. Leveling up allows you to improve the energy rate of your mechanical or energy weapons, your shields, your hull, and the amount of damage you do by increasing each ones meter over time, this is a nice feature where you can see noticeable improvements. What hurts the game is the stage design, which has you flying through space shooting ships and asteroids in the environment, there's nothing interesting about the environment from a visual or gameplay perspective. You also level up extremely quickly and will level up even if you die, making the easy game even easier. The game has good graphics compared to many indie shoot em ups, the backgrounds are nice, shots and explosions look good, and the ship models are decent. I'm really a fan of the, often repetitive, dubstep style music that is used which can feel like a pretty big negative when compared to the excellent, varied, and exciting soundtracks of many shoot em up games. For the low price it is a decent game that can hold your attention for a little while but there are much better games of this style available if you are willing to spend more or track down older titles.
