I love how the colossal energy from propulsion is displayed here. You wouldn't want to be nearby when the engines start.

Looks really good so far. It would be fun to maybe add birds splatted onto the screen every time you hit one, like Sopwith.

Pretty neat but there's no gravity in space. Soon as I go on my space walk my rocket suddenly drops back down to Earth !

This is fun to watch though, great animation and sound, you definitely deserve a star for this.

Pretty nice. I would love for things (ramp, car if too close, platform) to fly away under the force of the launch blast.
