Lightyear Alpha will start by asking for your name and gender. Picking the gender changes the color of your ship. Let the small tutorial in the beginning help you as the keys are not all intuitive. You'll use the arrow keys to move left, right, up and down on a side scrolling screen. Enemies will get in your way and you'll shoot them with the B button. Once you gather enough energy you'll have powers you can unleash using the space bar. They will change from missiles to double shots to a laser beam and a few others. Give Lightyear Alpha a try today!
