I give a 2/10 because of the fun premise.
Sadly, the music is not the greatest for headphone users, some of the collisions don't work if they come at you diagonally (because of box collisions, the empty space around them counts as a part of them), and there is no health bar. Also the earth seems to be rotating in a very strange way, because the center of the sprite is not the center of the earth, but the center of the earth+gun.

@Javabot Thank you for your feedback, we actually have the rotation thing fixed and we're going to update the file tonight to get that working for everyone. As for the music, I'm not sure why you say that, it sounds just fine on my headphones and several other pairs of headphones I've tried??

I really like what you did with the menus. Humor is almost always welcomed in games and the gameplay is straightforward. If more features were added this could be a pretty fun game.

I really like the menu moving style and graphics. Even if the concept is basic it's still a nice game. I just guess it could miss some bonus stuff to increase the challenge.

Nice simple shooter game :) Some of the ships spawned at strange very close positions though....

Fun gameplay, although the music is pretty harsh and the game might need difficulty increases as time goes on.

Good game, I liked the humor, and I enjoyed the music
(though I didn't use headphones).

Just a general tip, if you change the end of your dropbox link from "?dl=0" to "?dl=1", the file will download automatically. Also, your download has a lot of unnecessary or duplicated stuff in it, like screenshots, some random videos, some duplicated sound effects, and both a zipped and unzipped version of the "TEST GAME" folder, which significantly increase the file size.

I enjoyed this game! The graphics were nice, and I'd probably be drawn in with some juice effects but this was a mini LD and that's not a huge concern :~]

I can say, as a headphone user, the music wasn't that bad! I didn't quite enjoy it as much as the game over and title screen music, but it wasn't /that/ bad on headphones. Some of the collisions were a little wonky, so maybe playing a sound or some kind of visual effect would have been a good way to signal that.

7/10, good job!

Simple, well made game! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the MiniLD 69 games, if you’d like to take a look :)
