Not bad. I like the music, background effect and overall design.

About the same complaints as Xzello, but i would suggest to only spawn enemies from outside the "screen". It s really annoying if they - plopp - appear next to you.

I Really liked the background theme :D

You've made another one of those asteroids theme games where you are a sort of ship and you shoot stuff in order to survive, except a bit more flashy. I like the theme.
What I did not like so much was how sensitive and the controls were. The ship has a rather fast fire rate of water drop looking projectiles that more very slowly. My primary weapon became the bursts of projectiles from the ship's exhaust because I found it to be more effective than the disappointingly slow "water drops". The ship itself also moved differently compared to the ship from asteroids in which it had the left and right directional buttons for steering and the up directional button for acceleration. Your ship follows the direction pressed directly, which makes the game too easy, with the mouse as a firing system contributing as well. There should also be more enemies spawning. A majority of my time playing the game was waiting for something to pop up, which makes the multiplier system useless. The best I could get as a multiplier was a 3.
The theme is good, but not original. The controls need some work, and so does the enemy spawning. Make it harder and it may be a game that is saved, but for now I think the game should be blammed on Newgrounds.
