I like the animations. And the Highscore additions. Really cool.

Nice fonts! Nice ship design! Nice explosion graphics! Nice music!

Maybe a little more variety in enemies? Something which moves across the screen and shoots stuff at you?

thanks for the kind words!
Anyone beat the Ace score yet?

@trevorade
Enemy additions where amongst the ideas currently in the fridge.
My original vision included enemy bullets (giving birth to the 'dodge roll' idea).
And we had some cool ideas, especially when following through on the concept that enemies change behavior when hit.

But since we felt that our design goals where met, and the fact that it had to be displayed at a specific venue, we called it feature full. New enemies would also mean way more level design work.

Not to mention that this is only my second stab at pixel art, so more enemies could have taken some time (and sanity ^^)

My current high score is 8360 :)

I found 2 small bugs while playing your game. I hope you don't mind me posting them here.
After I finished the game for the first time, it restarted with a black background (no star field visible).
I also discovered that it's possible to enter 16 characters, but only 15 of them are visible on the high score board.
