It's fun, simple, and nicely designed and executed
Interesting controls for an old game.
I like to see people trying new things and attempting innovation! Props for that. However, I don't think this is quite perfect.
Perhaps if you could still move your ship Independence from your mouse I would enjoy it more. As is, I was frustrated that I couldn't shoot at anything that was near the bottom of the screen without being hit by it.
I accidentally used the bomb a number of times, I would place that button elsewhere.
The visuals, while pretty, made me a tad nauseous (especially when it did the speeding up motion, which seemed to serve no purpose aside from making me sick).
Finally, I agree with others that you needed a boss or something to help climax the action. Still an entertaining game with a new look at a classic play style!
beautiful game that is...
cool, like the music and the gameplay is addictive!
That pause function...
I'm taking 3 points off just because its so impossible to move to the edges of the screen without having the pause mess you up. otherwise its like all the other ones. Upgrades or bosses or challenges would be nice.
