The time limit increase to a minute and thirty seconds for every five levels. When reaching the bonus round, it switches to a 2d fix shooter that is similar to the arcade game Galaga as you take in a parade of Gargon’s space ship.

Feedback / Suggestion

What we are looking for any improvement to enhance the gaming experience that is challenging, but engaging. It could be like adding more enemies, position of asteroids or etc. But do keep the suggestions simple because the game is more of an arcade genre. Until then we cannot wait for your response and thank you.
