You'll find that Starcede is different from other flash shooters because it features beautiful graphics, a Star Map with non-linear level progression, secret levels, online high scores, a dynamic tech tree with resettable upgrades, and unique gameplay mechanics that offer a wide variety of gameplay styles. The game combines a great multiplier mechanic that rewards skill with using the points awarded to upgrade your ship, and rewards players for achieving high scores by unlocking additional levels.
