Morally Reprehensible? Yes
A good game? Strangely yes...
It's hard, its incredibly hard! The fact that the game screen is so small, and that some of the objects you have to avoid are so large makes it almost impossible to avoid them. Especially when you have missiles screeching past incredibly fast that you have absolutely no chance in avoiding them.
The game needs to tone its difficulty down slightly, or make the gamescreen larger, since spending most of your time in the centre of the screen to look out for incoming debris means you dont have much of a chance to move when something suddenly comes in from the right or left hand side of the screen.
