WOW ! Whatta great shooter !

I like the fact you can press 🅾️ to invert the direction you are facing to shoot those enemies that have gotten behind you and that your enemies are all vectors that truly rotate in 360 degrees.

Very well done, @ggaughan. Gold star production !

This is a really, really, good idea beautifully executed. The inversion of direction is a great feature and makes a change from the usual Shmups that we have seen recently.

The presentation is all round top-notch. Great graphics and music. The levels are nicely designed . "Come get some" being the first time you are surrounded and all the alien missiles coming straigh for you. It has a real retro feel to it.

It does get difficult near the end. Any reason that the level resets on death? That does seem unduly harsh.

You would have got a gold star just for the "Dastardly and muttley" reference, but this is a great game.
