Theme interpretation
I love the line from Star Wars "that's no moon kid." I love the idea of a ragtag bunch of rebels betting it all on a moonshot and blowing up a moon .. I mean space-station.

I liked the voice over, quite enjoyed the dry humor and the obvious reference to a certain franchise and how you tie it into the theme.

I find that being able to be hit by your own projectiles can be quite jarring, like if I move forward while firing it will easily hit myself, but I could deal with that.

Maybe if there was some visual indication that enemies are being hit would be great, because right now the projectile simply disappears into enemies.

I just noticed there isn't really music in this game? I have nothing much to say about the sound effects.

The graphics are alright, reminiscent of good old online flash games I used to play, though of course they're nothing to write home about.

How do you start the game? I can't find any .exe

Well that's embarrassing. I uploaded a new file. This time I exported the game as .exe and then zipped that as opposed to asking the game engine to do it for me. Sorry :(

Cool. I like that you added voice-overs. Good variety of weapons with different effects.   

Some well-intentioned and constructive criticisms: The voice-overs overlap if the player progresses faster than you intended. The main and in-game menus use a mouse, but the game is played with a gamepad. I skipped all of the enemies and went straight into the reactor and blew it up. I did escape from the moon, but I got blown up anyway when the timer ran out. Also, if you go around the back of the moon (skipping the front entrance), your ship can move behind the moon but you won't see your ship.

Overall, a good attempt for a game jam. I think it still has some loose ends to tie up! Best of luck! 

P.S. We're looking for more feedback on our game submission. Please consider trying out our game. Thanks!
