really neat concept! i really liked the amalgamation of the two genres. cool visuals and sound! also really like that the ship automatically goes back down, though i do think it would be nice to be able to go back down manually. 

i'm not much into skill-based games as much anymore, but shooting the ball with the single shot was kinda rough. it was a lot more fun with the spread, way more satisfying... although maybe a bit overpowered. this is just my perspective, though :OP

Thanks so much for playing and providing such great and honest feedback! 

You aren't the first to mention manual vertical movement, but you are the first to mention just manually moving down. Most people ask about manually moving up. Either way it's something that I may end up toying with, since its usually the first feedback people give. 

The vanilla laser has been getting this common feedback too. Nearly every iteration I speed it up a bit, but I think I may need to try to stabilize the ball so its easier to direct.  

As for the spread shot being OP. You're correct! I'm thinking about nerfing it just a bit, though some people really like the OPness of it. Its a tough call so I think minute changes my be beneficial. 

Thanks again for your well written and awesome feedback! I very much appreciate the support! Get at me anytime if you come up with anything else!  馃槂
