Thank you for that detailed feedback! We will try that shield stacking now =D we had the idea ourselves before but i guess we just forgot it. so now, we're working on it.
And thanks again for your kind words!
I was discussing the game with one of my teammates yesterday evening, and we came to the conclusion that a co-op mode would make a really awesome addition. Although it would be a lot of work to implement, due to the small amount of buttons required, a one-keyboard approach with either split-screen or a single stretching screen could work, no online stuff required.
Co-op would allow for a bit of teamwork, bouncing ships and especially rocks around. Also, it would make it more managable when the RNG spawning system screws you over by spawning multiple huge (!!!) ships on opposite sides :p
Have you guys made any games before this? You seem like you knew what you were doing.
We're working on some ideas. But you are kind of correct. Both of us studied game design here in germany. =D
Oh wow, just played it again, and you already so much extra stuff!
- stacking armour
- title screen and score board
- maybe tweaked the controls/flying speed? Not quite sure, hard to compare my experience from yesterday with today. But it felt a little different.
