Similar to Omega Race.  Just shoot everything.  It is very easy right now, but give it a try anyway and let me know what you think.  I have lots of space to improve the roaming enemy to less linear movement.

Any comments appreciated.

Thanks.

Horrible key setup, very unnatural to use your litlte finger to shoot.

Rather use arrow keys, and space to shoot. Smiley

You can also shoot with the right ctrl key.

I set it up for a right handed person.  I prefer my right hand to be on the fire key so I can fire faster. 

I changed the setup so you can use either the arrows or the WASD for movement and CONTROL or SPACE to fire.

Ok, thanks Smiley I tried it again, it's fine.

Few questions:
- what is this game about?
- is it in space? (if so, would be nice to see some stars in the background)
- enemy movement is too predictable, make each enemy have it's own path
- bullet movement too predictable (or whatever it is) - make each enemy shoot it's own bullets straight at player (or nearby)
- would be nice to have a reverse thruster

Never heard of Omega Race?  It's just an arcade shooter.

It is in space.  Maybe I will add stars, if there is room.

Definitely.  That is the next thing for me to work on.

Not sure what you mean.  Bullets go in the direction you fire.  Once I improve the movement of the fast enemy, he will also be able to fire.

That is part of the difficulty of the game.

Yea, I meant the enemy bullets are too predictable Smiley Player bullets are fine.

A new version is up.  I still need to give the enemy shooting and improve movement.

I should prove more challenging with the center block added.(As long as you don't stay in one place.)
