Really outstanding pixel art here (looks like super metroid?) and the defensive swapping mechanic with no attacks is a cool concept! Not sure why the rocket direction gets swapped sometimes though. Would be cooler in an expanded game.

Thanks! The rocket flies whatever direction you were facing when you swap with it. That way you can aim it at a specific group of enemies even if they're in the other direction.
