I agree with the other reviewers about the controls needing improvement. In my case, in the middle of the game I brought up a popup asking if I wanted to add this site as a bookmark which I had to cancel, and later on the game's window just closed on me. I'm assuming it's because I'm on Chrome so Ctrl-B brought up bookmarking stuff and Ctrl-W closed the window, so I would highly recommend not making the button to fire your laser be Ctrl. But, from what I could see before the window closed and I re-opened a new one to write this review, the game is actually pretty good if it doesn't run into these issues.

Plz to allow custom key bindings and re-upload and you'll prolly get a way better rating. (The other potential issue is that there are certain simultaneous keypressing conflicts that might make the game unplayable down the line if I can't move like I would need to.)

The controls on this game are a little wonk, but I kind of get why you made it for controller.
The premise, story and goal of the game seem pretty simple. I'm not such a fan of the combat system because most of the enemies are pretty OP, and the person we're controlling has pretty low health. I was kind of confused about what was going on after pressing New Game, it made me think that I was in control of the spaceship, and that's what the game would be about. Mechanics-wise, I think that the aiming system could be improved so you can aim and shoot at enemies above you, without having to jump. The music at the Main Menu is awesome and really drew me in. The actual music during the gameplay is toooo bland for my taste. Good start.

Wait ... "wasd" to move + arrow-keys to aim + mouse to shoot .... oh, i get it, it's a two player game. Unfortunately i am playing alone and don't have 3 hands, so that's a bad thing already.

Also, i can't really continue playing, since i can't get the jet pack at the left side (activating the two "buttons" at the higher floor didn't do anything. The rocket i tried to buy doesn't appear anywhere so i can't try to fire it on the brown blocks) and therefore can't jump high enough on the right side.

Soooo ... sorry, don't like the game as it is right now.
