    The music and the sounds are sort of annoying. At least to me. xD Otherwise, it's a good bullet-storm type game.

    Nice Game. found it got overwhelming quickly as there were few power ups but once you get going its fun.

    I liked the game quite a bit. But I love dual-stick shooters and 360 controller option is wonderful. It's fun to play.

    Aaaahhh I want to play this game. I could only see the gameplay video but it looks amazing. Wish I had a windows machine to try out these XNA titles.

    Thank you guys!

    Good point regarding the music ^^. I used Autotracker and I wished that I could find a way to change the default Win7 MIDI synthesiser. It sounds quite bad. I made an even more annoying music with PXTone but thankfully, it didn't made it to the final game ^^.

    And also good point on the lack of power ups, the game is not quite well balanced and your success depends on the probability of power ups to appear :-/.

    Not well balanced, and the graphics could have been a bit better (including the font) bot other than that great job! Its fun to play with!

    Nice game.

    A few annoyances though: When you die, all your powerups are gone and you're having a hard time. Also, the shoot sound gets annoying real fast. Other than that quite ok.

    Decent shooter. I don't mind the fuzzy graphics, but the font is rather difficult to read.

    interesting, I love shooter games, but can't test due to XNA4 dependency (doesn't work on anything but windows, which I don't have)

    Controls are weird...why no WASD ? Why a middle mouse button ? I haven't any middle mouse butoon nor gamepad. No bullet time for me.
    Anyway, the games works fine and is quite fun to play
