In general the game isnt particularly difficult, but I have found it relaxing and fun to play. Hopefully some of you will as well. :)
EDIT: After some thought, I rescaled the difficulty. Health powerups drop slightly less frequently, enemies fire slightly faster, enemy seek range has been increased, and enemy count scales higher/faster than it did. I think the game is more engrossing with these changes. Though I was criticized for making a shmup with one hit player death...so maybe I just scale things too difficult? I dunno. Hard to tell. This one still feels really easy to me.
