I've tried the demo and the game seems to have a lot of potential, but two things annoyed me a lot:

1) Collisions don't work properly and are too punishing. You die even if nothing really touches you. I think a very smaller hitbox is necessary.

2) When you die you don't even notice, both because of the collisions bug, and because nothing happens: no explosion, no sound effectss

If I may add some suggestion I think it would be nice to have sound effects for "bigger" enemies shooting (like flying and walking mechs in the demo).

Ah, one more thing: once in three attempts the first level's boss (wich I could not beat! It0s hard!) did not appear, leaving me in the empty room, with nothing to do but crashing on the soil.

Seems people have a very different opinion on them and how they should behave.

Had some adjustments here and there, but I am very sure there is no way to get everybody happy on this topic.

No explosion and no sound when you die sounds weird, since that is definitely happening.
Maybe it's just not prominent enough for you?

Hey Neil, I am just in the process of finishing the game with the help of some very nice beta testers.

I will give you the full game to test (and hopefully write about ) soon..

I was playing with headphones, but I just did not "felt" the pain when dying. Maybe raise up the explosion's volume a bit?

About collisions: little bullets kill you aven if they don't really touch you. Moreover: try to approach one of the walking robots flying near the ground just below their beams. You will die near to themm, without touching them.

All the rest seems great. Maybe the first boss is a little bit too hard?

This stuff has been repaired already. like I said, this demo is over two to three months old now, and I had lots of feedback since then..

But off course, I will never be able to catch every little bug or bad collission in this game.
All of the levels were tested for stuff like this. But even then you might find some weird nook where the collission is shit, and just nobody thought of flying there before you...

The whole level is a bit easier now, as well as the boss...

Thanks for your feedback
Always great to get some ideas that might be worth to look into.
