This was a great game. Lots of fun, and I especially liked your shield system (and the invincibility powerup that lasted from level to level). I use a laptop as well, but I was able to figure out the controls, although it was a little awkward to learn to steer with my left hand and shoot with my right. I read your responses to other laptop users, so I know your problem with the arrow keys, but maybe you could have an option to use i,j,k,m to steer and q,w,e as weapon keys. Just a thought. Finally, I didn't see a powerup for the ship's main guns. One of the best parts of these types of games is working to power your primary weapon up through many steps until you become *almost* invincible. I'd like to see that if you work on the game further. Again, thanks for the fun game!
