Haahaha, I collapsed a single cell away from my spaceship. XD

This is really good in almost all aspects. The graphics are decent, the audio is enjoyable and moody, the theme is well represented, and it kept me playing for quite a bit despite its difficulty. Stellar job, IMHO!

If there's anything I can leave you with, besides difficulty, is maybe a bit more visual feedback on game events. During my first game I wasn't even aware there were levels, and I was surprised to see everything around me change when I walked into a black spot. It took me another two deaths before I figured out what was doing the ranged attacks. ;)

But at the same time, I think a higher difficulty and having to figure things out a bit are two pillars of rogue-likes.

Very good game. It took me a little to figure out, and I died misserably, but still liked it :)

I keep getting killed by screams...SCREAMS! How could a scream hurt ? It's too hard! I give up!
But : It's nice, moody, and I get suprised many times. I liked it.

Thanks for comments!
The game is really difficult, this is my mistake. See my journal for easy version and easy ascii version (they are pretty difficult too, but easier than original one).

The controls are a bit weird; I surprised myself wanting to move by just pressing the arrow key instead of having to rotate the arrow. I didn't like that sometimes I am forced to take damage or I can't continue; this makes the game harder that necessary. It was funny though.
