Wow thanks for the awesome gameplay video! I'm stoked that you enjoyed the game ^_^ especially since top down shooters aren't your thing!
The space bar mashing is a little intentional as to be honest otherwise the game becomes a little too easy... But maybe there's an upgrade/power-up idea in there somewhere?? Only future star systems will tell!
Thanks so much for taking the time to play through this. Maybe if you want to take on the rest of The Blue Deltas there's a part 2 ahead?! (If you want to start The Blue Deltas with a couple more lives without grinding through chapter one again, the settings in the save select screen - hit the gear icon in the bottom right - allows you to select which system to start from).
Keep up the great videos!
