The good and the bad

The good - The graphics aren't that bad and it does seem like you're putting a lot of space. The designs of the enemies are pretty creative. It's often a good idea to have a mute button for things. You can learn through training the right way to aim those blasters because they're not straight (more on that later). Congradulations on getting such a high score with something with few views.

The bad - You do need to work with shading because some of the colors look a tad off. It looks a bit dated given modern Flash standards. The controls seemed to not work that well because I couldn't tell half the time where my blasts were going to go. There could be more detail in the background too.

Hey, neat.

Basic gameplay is good. I'm very happy to see a keyboard & mouse shooter.

First, I think the screen is stretched. Could you please review the game's dimensions and update them on Newgrounds?

Gameplay comments follow:

I see that upgrading your ship speed is part of the game, but the initial ship speed seems way too slow.

The WASD keys work (great!). I didn't realize this because the on-screen instructions indicate the arrow keys only.

This game could really use a radar. Actually, I think you could zoom in on the player if the game had a radar; that could, in turn, offset the need to speed up the player.

Thanks for the game. Keep it up!
