Doh, after I handed over my $4 last night when the update hit!

I'm not sure I'm loving the current scoring model, while unique.

The game is great but your score is based only on the number of opponents killed which means:

1) No credit for asteroid busting.
2) Killing a boss is really only a means to get onto the next level, as they themselves are only worth 1 kill once defeated.

I also would love it if the ship I chose actually made a difference in things like thrust, armor, and maybe special abilities.

We totally agree and are looking into a new scoring mechanism down the road - but couldn't say when it would be implemented because our main priority at the moment is adding in some more offline game modes (one of which will be an asteroid busting game

As for varying the ship abilities / stats...this is something we've definitely thought about, but at the moment it isn't a priority.
