I think that after implementing score and health with UI you should do something about targeting. I find it very hard to control the turret. I think it would be great if you could allow the player to use his mouse to control the turret and maybe some kind of visual guide of where the projectile is going to hit (otherwise just make the projectiles move straight).

Thanks for the advice KloudRazor, the speed and the targetting system should indeed be improved.
I plan to help the player aim with some UI icons in my next update.

I don't know if the inverted vertical axis is intentional but it's making the game more difficult/interesting :) But because of it I can't tell if the controls could be improved. It's still better than keyboard only controls

Can't play Windows games, but looks interesting.

Neat game! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the MiniLD 69 games, if you’d like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/fqpIvqrRLGw
