Pay attention to spike traps, and be careful around statues!

Takes a long time to defeat a single opponent, @PrinceD. Suggest opening levels are 1-2 seconds of combat to defeat a single enemy. Then ramp up the difficulty from there.

This is really fun! Suggestion: acts should have different scenery and maybe other new stuff (e.g. diff. hazards/statues), as I found the game addictively fun, seeing the same blue background is kinda boring.

I think the later acts are too difficult and luck dependent. I always die at act 5 because the enemies are too fast and likely have a strong weapon that makes it really difficult to stop them once it happens. A possible solution could be to maybe have a speed cap on them so that they can be fast but not faster than supersonic speed or have them carry very weak weapons or maybe, if you're planning to implement abilities, have one where you're weapon does more damage depending on how fast the enemy is. Just throwing out ideas. I still find myself playing the game over and over again 'cause this is a really fun prototype! Just too difficult on later acts :)
