I don't know what it was, but the exploding into shards of glass sounded cool and satisfying to shoot the enemies.

(might not have been implemented) but I never had an option to start a new game, the game would stop on the game over screen and I'd have to close the app to play again. Maybe something simple like clicking esc/start when on game over reloads the scene :)

Also the very first enemy on each wave was always really annoying haha since there wasn't much time to react.

Lastly, I found the pause menu nice and creative. It's much easier to focus when there's only one option on screen at a time which I liked :)

Thanks for playing! The restart was the last critical bit I was trying to fix before I ran out of time, unfortunately. Good point on the first enemy spawn; I should have had some kind of signpost for it like a glow in the portal. 

You managed to get a very satisfying gameplay!

That super power that destroys all the balls is a nice touch!

Keep up the good work!
