    You approach the turnstiles leading into the circus circus and you know that when you get there, you have to give the man 2 dollars or he wont let you in. But when you get there everything goes wrong: you misjudge the distance to the turnstile and slam against it, bounce off and grab hold of an old woman to keep from falling, some angry rotarian shoves you and you think: Whats happening here? Whats going on? Then you hear your self mumbling: "Dogs drated the pope, no fault of mine. Watch out!... Why money? My name is Brinks; I was born... born? Get sheep over side... woman and children to armoured car... orders from captain Zeep. Ether is the perfect drug for las vegas. In this town they love a drunk. Fresh meat. So they put us through the turnstiles and turned us loose inside.

    As pretty as this game is, I really can`t play it.

    And Kenny, you might want to... give us some context. I googled what you wrote, it`s from the urban dictionary definition of ether.

    I had great fun playing that game. 4 stars, mosdef.

    15998. And no, I think you can`t lose. YOu can just keep dying and respawn till you kill the boss.

    I played this on Newgrounds, it was awesome. Unfortunately my computer sucks at work so cant play it here.

    The trick is this:

    First thing, get your triple shot.
    Second, upgrade weapons to max.
    third, max out your allies ships (trust me, they own face later on)
    Fourth Max out your shields
    Fifth Max out your speed.

    After you max your weapons second, the point for upgrades come in really fast. I so far avg about 23k-25k score each pass. If you get the hang of it, you can skip the friends upgrade along with half shield upgrades, just get triple shot + max weapons+ max speed with a few shield upgrades. You can then kill it before the mothership upgrades to much.

    All you gotta do is focus on buffing your allies ships and you`re set.

    "Defend your base from waves of ethereal beings and watch as they explode like a molotov roostertail in a fireworks factory."

    why does it matter where a molotov roostertail explodes? never thought the surrounding (as long as it`s not in a box or under differing air conditions) had something to do with the exlosive behaviour of something.. I don`t tank about the effect that a molotov roostertail explosion surely has in a fireworks factory.. but well I guess it`s too sophisticated :) go hunt my head verbally

    "And no, I think you can`t lose. YOu can just keep dying and respawn till you kill the boss"

    You lose if your Space Station gets heavy damage. Your ship can`t die, as you keep respawning.

    Fun game.

    A bit too fast, or too zoomed in. Either factor made it difficult to figure out what was going on. Otherwise, good game.

    Fun but I was a bit disappointed by the final boss, he was easier to kill than the orange globes around him.

    The key to winning is to upgrade all of your allies first. That way, they handle the bad guys while you concentrate on upgrading yourself :)

    Arrrrrgh. A nice idea, but damn frustrating. I never seem to be able to keep up with the upgrade rate of the baddies, and there`s too much crap on the screen at one time (even with particles set to minimum). A little restraint would have served well here.

    On the plus side, I like that the attackers are these glowing ethereal balls. That`s something new...

    langdonhill, thats a bad idea, u get nether from things u kill, so if ur ship sucks, and ur allies r good, they kill the stuff before u do.. and u died easily
