Just to buy a special ship. Do like it but wish it wasnt just one life, If you die you can then watch an ad to continue m. Was hoping the IAP would give you 3 lives or something

Can't kill the music. That can kill a game for me, even a shmup which I'm always anxious to check out.

Hi folks, I'm Ray, the developer. Thanks for the thread!

I just updated to 1.0.2 with some big bugfixes. Feel free to ping @bipedaldog on twitter if you spot anything else or have any other feedback. I'll make a note of muting the music independently, for instance (the first big feature update will be some menu/options improvements so that dovetails nicely).

Excellent on the music mute! I'll then be able to play in a somewhat less frantic atmosphere. Thanks!
