i've played this game a bt and i've found it amazingly hectic, but not in the way i'd like it to be. i mean, meteor blitz is hectic, but in a good, manageable way but here it seems amost impossible to go anywhere without getting shot.

Interesting - the difference I think is that in meteor blitz, if you get hit a couple times, your ships blows up. In ours you have a larger health pool and can take more hits, and have the opportunity to heal yourself.

Also, in meteor blitz the objects that damage you are also what you have to fire at, whereas ours has projectiles you have to dodge but you have to shoot at their source.

Those are the key differences I see which make us sort of a different beast (and as you point out - not necessarily better but I think that's subjective and depends on the individual), and we are always open to suggestions.

But we don't want the game to be too easy, and there's no way you could dodge everything! I find it fun (I better...I helped make it!!) and there are some players who have apparently found it easy and made it pretty high up on the leaderboard

Latest youtube with sound

We were actually in the process of putting up a newer one with sound (even though it doesn't sound great) - it's still processing so the quality is a little lower - sorry about that. Hopefully we can do a better demo than this in the future!
