I feel bad now for destroying the boss ships, think about the repair costs..
wait a minute...
It should be enough to FIRE EVRYTHING? weird
it dont matter how big the danmaku are that tiny little ship still somehow will dodge it
(danmaku = bullets)
you know thats not so difrent than how thows games go. a rely small ship takes on a hugass ship with the latest guns and shelleds and ends up winning epicly.
Your animations need more polishing but you are on the right road. The story was great and the characters seemed to have personality. smoother animations and not so stiff animations and you could be a great one.
