I found the movement mechanics a bit frustrating, and I'm not sure why the rockets I fire don't seem to do anything. It seems strange that the enemies weapons do nothing to you either. Please explain the function of the shield and the dash - what advantages do thy bring? The idea of making the planet larger as it progresses makes sense from a gameplay point of view (giving the player a harder time defending it) but not really from a logical/story point of view - maybe add some explanation as to why it grows? On the whole a clearer experience for the player would be better. Great job on the soundtrack, it matches the pixel arcade shooter style very well, and is a genuinely good composition.

this is explanation for the ship (read on the download page): 'your ship is made from so strong material it can withstand blasts from meteors or laser and can be used to ram into enemies to destroy them' but true we should add an explanation to the planet growing also the function of the shield is to make it easier to destroy projectiles when there are many of them coming but thanks for the comment :)
