I like how the art is based on an NES cartridge

Oh yeah I suck at this game

@pixelperfect thanks for your comment.
I must not be the first to use the NES style I guess, but I really like this console :)

is great for a first game - I would check out the Lazy Devs Simple Shmup tutorial and really delve deep into it. It looks like you perhaps used it a bit.

My score 17015!

Some comments:

  • make explosions bigger and more fun
  • I like the bullet impact effects - pond effects - colours are really nice. Maybe make the bullets red/orange/yellow also so it makes sense with impact.
  • shooting sound could have more bass and lower volume so a little less annoying as its going to be held down a lot.
  • music at start is cool - would be good to put some music in waves or for boss.
  • upgrades for shot - shot is a little boring and enemies are spongy. pickups for an upgrade that gives a bigger shot or more bullets in shot is a lot more fun.
  • maybe a bomb or second shot would be fun.
  • the asteroids are cool but maybe less in a line and a bit more random and fun to weave through since you cant shoot them down.
  • few more shooting enemies.
