    I love this! and that menu screen. good stuff.

    It looks really nice but I think there might be something wrong. I open, and I shoot, but then the screen fades to black.

    I love the ambience, I love the controls and how you can feel the gravity. This game has potential :)

    Nice, simple, fun game. The menu screen was awesome.

    The targets were all a bit small, though, not really varying much in size from what I saw, it was difficult to tell when you were getting close to losing (or if there was better indication, it was taking forever to get to that indication), and the turret seemed to run out of energy all too quickly.

    I never finished a level (won or lost), because indications of winning/losing weren't really noticeable besides a number that didn't say what it meant and it was starting to drag.

    Nice gameplay and menu. Got a little bit repetitive but overall fun. Watch the volume on some of your sounds. I had to rip my headphones off when the planet exploded.

    Cool gameplay, if a bit repetitive. Jumping between Earth and the Moon gave me an unusual amount of joy.

    The game is well polished. I got an score of 352 :). It's getting really fast really hard.

    Thanks Everyone for playing this!

    I've fixed multiple bugs. Like the volume being too high.

    Wat is this I don't even...
    Ok...
    I think it's fun, but the game crashes after the second room. Love the cat noise btw.

    I like the menu and the earth fisics and how you can jump onto the moon and almost get yourself to orbit around it.

    Solid gameplay and good execution, well done. I did find the cool-off on the gun a bit annoying though. It doesn't seem to serve a purpose, and kinda distracts from the action-arcade experience. But well done, nonetheless.

    @PabloAM
    It's pretty much the same though.
    But if you insist; then fine. I'll put a link the the previous one. If I can find it.

    Very good entry. The ambient sounds really set the mood. My first request would be to somehow to see the health of the planet so I can make decisions on which targets I should go after. My second request would be gun upgrades and power ups! I enjoyed playing it. You menu is really cool too. My high score was 715.
