I really want to love this game because it's such a neat idea. And the aesthetics are great. There's small things in the graphics that tell me that certain parts should be placed behind and certain parts should be in front, which is great. However, the actual combat is really, really hard. Like, I found I could rarely kill any enemies at the start with my regular core. And that really crippled me for later on. It was literally impossible for me to not take damage to fight these ships, which really sucked!
I wish there was some additional mobility or similar that allowed me to dodge or not take damage. I thought there was a shield part or something, but I don't think I ever saw it. I wish some of the parts were a little clearer as to what they were. Otherwise though, cool idea!
