Some Advice
"I think the game is a little too hard right from the start. Enemy waves get pretty crowded and projectiles (music notes) are quite big, making them hard to avoid. And with only one life, it feels too unforgiving. " ——hvianna. Thanks, have done √.
“I agree the game starts a little too hard and the controls feel a little bit off."——mj132. Thanks, have done √.
“You definitely might want to change the acronym for this one!"——PBSNellie. Thanks, have done √.
“I'm just wondering as you devs don't seem like English is your first language. You do know what STD stands for right? "——ste86uk. Thanks, have done √.
“i feel like the hatbox is. A little bit off. Feels like some shots should hit me very barely but they don't and on others I think I barely dodged but still get hit."——forsakeNXE. Thanks, have done √.
“I think the game can use better balancing. Getting killed after a single hit isn't very fun"——Kevin Agot. Thanks, have done √.

Truly, this game reminds me of Sky Force, Saint Dragon, Metal Slug.

The boss battle is very impressive.

I like your design concept, hope your game will stay in my memory.

Happy to join this beta.

honestly, this looks quite good, but i really hope there is still much more to expect from the game and what i see from the gameplay above is only a small part from the game. oh and of course please be premium.
