This was a phenomenal experience. You know exactly what you want your project to be and you move towards that goal with finesse. Shooting felt tight and well designed and the stage itself was laid out beautifully. You and your team are very talented and have a bright future ahead. Please continue to work towards your end goal! I look forward to seeing more in the future!
Attempting to set 'Escape' as a button for config exits the game. Probably best to let the player know if that's a reserved key.
Shooting controls were a bit confusing, as I'm sure you've heard many times before. I get that there's benefits to not firing, but they hardly felt worth it and I'd much rather have auto-fire so as to not kill my fingers. The bomb key didn't seem to do anything and the focus key did... something I never figured out, probably a projectile barrier but I think I saw it drain two bars instead of 1.
The level was fast but it wasn't all too difficult aside from a moment or two of tight bullet patterns. I never beat the boss, though, that form where they shoot aimed attacks and can't be hurt until you pop the bubble got me every time.
For some reason when I went to edit keyboard controls it would never save them so I have no idea what button focus or pause is. Which I would like to know b/c the default movement speed is a bit quick.
also more of a personal opinion but escape should not be an equivalent to alt+f4
