    Hi,

    Looks nice and the music in no
    Hi,

    Looks nice and the music is nice.

    For the game mechanic itself i think that the movement is not smooth enough and you need to think on smoothing the movement and add
    2 animations layers for the movement , maybe a small tilt.
    Screen ratio to main craft - enemy size is too big in my opinion , i will readjust it 10-20% less to allow more movement as you also crash on the ground there is not a lot of room.

    i think that animation for hitting and firing will make the game a lot cooler and with smooth movement it can be a lot nicer.
    t to annoying

    Thank you Amir! That is some great and useful feedback. Yes, you are right, movement needs some work and adding settings for the "responsiveness" is a feature planned for a future release. There are also more flashy animations coming!

    May I ask, what kind of device did you test this on?

    I would love to give you free final-game content once the game is fully released, if you'd like that, please email zirthian[AT]qubiqinteractive[DOT]ca with the email address that you used to sign up for the TestFlight and we'll add you to the list of testers to reward!
