Decent

The game was decent i like that it was a character and not just another clone like a ship or something the "SOUND/FX" was really good the concept of the game was simple but still pretty good if you ask me, grapgics was pretty decent so you have a fun game here maybe ad some medals for this one.

Really wish this game had a highscore table, or even better: medals! The gameplay's great, with effectual sound effects and smooth animations/graphics. Shooting down the space ships is a rewarding process, and the challenge really keeps growing the further you go. Though the ships don't approach you at all it's a nice homage to the classic game with the same name, though reminds me more of Space Junkie, with the different ships and patterns. Would love to see some API rewards added to this! Also random drops on life, variation with power-ups etc... though since it's a limited link of levels maybe it's good with the current set of life, at least. Some kind of vacarion though... it'd make for more replayability even when you beat the game. Otherwise it's pretty much perfect! Great work.

Nice re-imagining of a classic. There are a few ways it could be improved though.

The original had barriers and I think this could benefit from them too since it seems impossible to dodge everything at the beginning of a new level.

Found a minor bug. If you press x when you're dead it still plays the shooting sound.

Would be nice to have continuous fire, mute buttons, menu screen and leaderboards.

Implement hold to shoot continuously and some evolution of game state other than spawn new enemies when cleared and the player's quality of life and sense of urgency will be increased.

No bugs I could find, but I only played a handful of levels.

Feel of game is fun and music is kinda cool, but going 8 levels with no continues is kinda harsh.
