PLAYER

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.

ENEMIES

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 reviews and comments

Horizontally Shooter with massive Shield, Life Points and 3 Extra Lives per Level Very good (360) Controller support. 20 * Waves Mode-Level + Endless (the Index fingers hurt with after 10 Minutes). No more Memorized as there is no Level Structure. No Power-Ups, solid Extra Weapons. Leve-up mechanics. Very repetitive. Despite a massive amount going on on the Screen (almost, but there are extra lives for that) Always fair by Shield and Repair. Is not a Masterpiece but Fun.

Duke of Alpha Centauri is a Space Shooter. You have to try to destroy the enemy Spaceships and Dodge Asteroids. The Menu is clear and you can make a lot of Adjustments to the Control. The Logitech Wireless F710 Controller was Also detected without any Problems. There were no Mistakes when playing. Even the Steam Achievements could be unlocked without any Problems. You can play the Game occasionally, but I catch the heavy Mode a little too easily. The Flood of Steam'S Achievements could also have been contained a little. A fair Price would be €1 for me. 100% of Steam Achievements takes in about 7 Hours.

A little retro friendly game in which we fight enemy ships. There are in total 20 levels + an infinite level in which it is necessary to survive as long as possible. There are 2 levels with bosses (level 10 & level 20), you have to fight enemy ships while improving our to the level of earned levels. The game has a lifespan of about 1h (very short), and Moreover it is very easy, I recommend you put average difficulty for a minimum of challenge (I said a minimum). The game contains 128 successes, most unlocked by the only fact of playing and finishing the game, and the 128 are getting very easily in 2H of play. I recommend you buy this game with discounts, €5 is expensive given for such a short game.

Duke of Alpha Centauri is a very classic 2D shoot'em up. Despite a lack of script, we must defeat the Proxima station. With 20 levels available, represented by planets the difficulty gradually increases. There is nothing insurmountable especially that there is a cruel lack of boss. Every planet is made up of waves that must be defeated to finish the level. During my adventure on the game, the planet 18 had a bug, is did not trigger wave n ° 9. We have only one ship is available, upgrades are possible by earning levels. The successes are very easy I have 100%, while I did not hunt. The price of the game remains relatively high for such a short duration (3 hours) and little replayability. I still had a good time on Duke of Alpha Centauri
