I just released my first game for iOS - feedback appreciated! [Flappy Rocket]

Greetings all!

I just released my first game for iOS (iPhone & iPad). I have been developing apps for 5 years now and wanted to get back to my roots of game development.

So I took to the streets of Google *cough* and learned SpriteKit, which as many of you may know was released as a part of iOS 7.

I created a simple first release which was inspired by the arcade classic Asteroid mixed with Flappy Bird.

I am curious to hear any feedback and suggestions.

You can download the game here: http://bit.ly/getflappyrocket

Screenshots are included below

Not a fan of Flappy Bird or many of it's clones. But I loved Asteroids, so I thought I'd give it a try. While it's not my favorite genre of game, it's well done with nice graphics. It'll stay on my iPad Mini for those times when I have just a minute or two to kill.
Good job.

That would be unfortunate
