I really like the overall theme/feeling (story and art) of the game, so great job on that.
- Every 8 seconds or so the game stutters for half a second or so. Is that when you create the data for the environment?
- I would like to see multiple swing styles implemented, I believe you can only hit one item a time currently so perhaps you could add a wider swing that does AoE damage but requires more time to execute. This would allow for more dynamic game play as you have to decide between taking a longer time to hit multiple items stacked up or use precision hits for items that are alone.
- I encounter the shopping cart and wet floor sign once and never again.
Just a fun thought: perhaps you could have your score reflected in your beard size. So at a score of 0 you have a wimpy beard but at a score of 100 you have a magnificent beard. Good luck on your project, I look forward to updates.
