This is crazy sensitive! Anyone find a slider for that? Target reticule resets when you get powered up by streak.

Beat the game with a perfect in each stage in 1 go lol less than 15 mins

Ad-supported, pops up in between stages. Grab the laser and you're godlike. Might be too sensitive for others. Dual sticks can be moved around when the game is paused. 3-star system instead of points

15 minutes?! Wow! Nice work! I figure if someone plays my game for 15 minutes then that's already a success. I'll be adding more content in the updates. It's difficult because I'm only one man!

You pretty much nailed all the issues with the game. Great idea to have a sensitivity slider. I'll definitely put that in! Thank you for playing!

Hi, the game's really packed with action, and it's cool. I like the animations, but I prefer more serious themes.

There are a few things, that tell this is not a mainstream product. Like the video controls during the cinematics. They are really annoying, you definitely have to hide them. Or maybe they should be rendered by the game itself, I don't think the quality loss would be a deal breaker. The experience would be more fluid that way.

It takes some time to get used to the fast reaction and speed of your spaceship, but I guess it's required to be able to effectively get out of the way of obstacles. What if you introduce this degree of responsiveness gradually. I.e. on the first level your ship should move less speedy, and as you progress make it faster, so people can get used to the controls. Had no similar problems with the guns.

I had trouble telling the different guns apart, so I just tried to collect everything, which often downgraded my weapon. So I would make them look more different, maybe even tag them with stars. Like a one star weapon, two start weapon, three star weapon, etc. Starts could have different colors, so you could instantly tell whether you want to collect it or not.

Regards,
Balázs

Thank you! I agree with all your points and I'll try to address them in the update. I'll have to find a different solution for the video, it's a technical limitation.

Ugh, the other post was not kidding, I beat in 20mins, game is so easy and obviously short. Dunno if updates can help this game, it's just been done 10000's of times much better than this. Developers gotta realize we don't want clones, if doing a similar game in the genre, make it different, add in something to make it unique, new gameplay types, anything but the same stuff with a different look. This is what makes the App Store stale. No offense to the dev, u tried after all, just not hard enuff.

I would still say it's a success. How many games actually keep you entertained for 20 minutes these days?

I pretty much agree with most of your criticisms though. It is my first game after all and it was a solo project. It probably tends towards a younger audience too,

People sure seem to expect a lot for free these days!

One more thing, I think it makes more sense to be moved to the next level, once you finish one. Right now you have to scroll to it after completing the current one.
