It shouldn't be too much different from the joystick button config you already have. :)

Funny, I am listening to some music from Loveless right now. :D

Särskrivningspolisen säger; "skitbra" :P

Anyway; kickass game! A tad on the difficult side :D The few times i get to the boss, i die there.

Collect as many gun powerups as possible, shoot out the lower turret first. :)

When the top two turrets are the only ones left, just hover at the left side of the screen level with them and keep firing. Don't move. Their shots will miss. :P

played it some more and here's a few things a like and dislike: all shots have the same color :(. the projectiles are big :(. i don't know the critical point on my ship :(. the game is hard :). the projectiles move around very much(changing their course) making it hard to predict their movements :( sometimes :). the shots sometimes dissapears (while some fired by the same enemy don't) :(. feeling :).
overall :). i guess this is the kind of game that you need to play for a while so you know where all the enemies will turn up, because when you do: :).
hope to play the full version soon!.

BTW, i've added an attachment with a picture of my highscore.......... - -

You are kind of a comic, Albin ;D But you are also as hard as rock in your comments :-X

For the critical point on your ship: There's a freakin' arrow pointing to it on the character select!

But it indicates nothing about the size or orientation of it. It sure isn't one pixel.

Kikaru: OOPS... my bad..

Well, i said those things to point out what i think is good and not, and i expect people to do the same when i place my game in the depot :). It's important right?, when you make your own game it's to be expected that you also play it alot and therefor negates alot of things because you're so familiar with it. am i wrong?.

My comments may have been hard but that does not change the fact that the game is great :). sorry if i have made someone sad......

Oh, and one more thing: I can't sign the highscore.. because i always use my initials when there's a 3character signingsystemstuff and there A P E... ><.. not that that is a bad thing.. it's just a coincidence :P

Thanks for the great response Albin (btw my name is Albin too ... now THAT's a coincidence)

"i don't know the critical point on my ship"

This has been taken care of in v1.3 demo (which will be out soon), your hitbox (exact hitbox) is displayed when you join a game and there's a large arrow that points on it and the text "WEAK POINT" flashes for a few seconds.

"the shots sometimes dissapears (while some fired by the same enemy don't) "

This is fully explained in the readme-file, and will also be explained in the "how to play"-tutorial which will be available in the full game.

Thanks again :)

Oh.. and I think you cheated on your highscore.

glad you liked my comments :). so here's some more stuff i thought about when i played: the smoke that comes from the missiles gets in the way of sight, i don't know if this is a good or a bad thing, they create a cool atmosphere, i like it, but at the same time i don't :P. One thing that makes me really sad very often are the helicopters.. those bastards can shoot a lot of projectiles! and they are the main reason to my deaths.. i love hard games but those helicopters makes me mad...
Will there be a difficulty switch in comming versions?

And it's not cheating, it's art :).
there's no better name than "Albin", and girls find it cute too +.

My hi score's 34 045. One issue that I find a bit annoying, is the sound effect for Choke's fully upgraded cannon. It's too beefy! Could you tone it down a bit, so I could still hear the awesome music while kicking ass :).

That reminds me. There is one thing that annoys me about the scoring system: THe fact that you lose all multipliers upon dying. This means that in order to get a high score, you need to never die. Ever. Not-dying becomes the main point of the game rather than trying to hit as much stuff as possible. I find myself being forced to reset the game (which has significant overhead) over and over again because I die once and lose my only chance to get a high score. Whether this is intended or not I don't know; what I do know is that I'm not enjoying it.

Hmmm... I see what you are saying about that, but I die so much normally I just need to reduce the rate. Why not just lose a fraction of your multipliers, like half?
