Gameplay is really tight, I was almost turned at first, because I didn't like the way the spaceship handled, but that feeling quickly went away when I got my first steering upgrade. I also liked how a speed upgrade also zoomed out the map, nice touch. Good aesthetic and well thought-out, great job!

This game feels nice; the music, the aesthetic, even the gameplay itself.

It would load but never open. Sad face.

This game is swigity shweet ... its really addicting ... the only reason I give 4 is once you get some essential power ups you have no problems surviving and no new enemies seem to appear. If the game offered more of a challenge as you gained points I feel the reward and return playablity would go up. Otherwise very solid game.

I do not like it when a game goes full screen without checking with me. Right off the bat that's annoying. Setting that aside, initially, I found that I got no instruction annoying. If you did tell me how to fire, it was subtle enough that I missed it. I had to find the key myself. One I had figured that out, I got killed a few times, but that was just me learning how to play. I think you struck a really good balance with the control, and the ratio between player speed VS enemy speed. That must have take a lot of fine tuning! Honestly I could see putting in hours to get really good at this. The semi 3 dimensional top down remake of Asteroids vibe is kind of innovative for something so derivative. Nice.
