I'm... confused :D It may be just me, but there's too many stuff going on. I managed to get at least some score after a while (ranked 21st as of now \o/), but I suppose it's more luck than skill :D Also, took some time for me to even locate my ship. Still, you're 15 right ? Kudos for taking part and finishing your entry, keep it up ! (and keep using python, and maybe take a look at http://www.pyinstaller.org/ to package your pygame apps. Works quite well, but use the SVN version !)

I lack the technical prowess to make this go. :(

The window insisted on rezising to my main monitor's resolution and it simply cut off the lower part of the window. I had no idea what was going on :-/

Judging from the code it's attempting to go fullscreen but fails to do so, possibly because I run two monitors (different resolutions, at that).

Any ideas?

Took a long time to find my ship. So much happens so fast it is hard to figure out what is going on at first.
The ships response is slow that it is tricky to intentionally dodge much.

You probably ought to use py2exe for this sort of thing in the future so people can run your game more easily.

I have the technical prowess to make this run, but expecting me to go hunt dependencies is a bit much... You should use something like py2exe next time if you want useful feedback.

Screenshot looks decent and well done for being able to finish an entry at age 15 - keep trying!
