Unplayable, but looks good!

This Shoot 'em up looks really nice. The graphics are colourful with a lot of variety throughout each level and a nice selection of different enemy waves attacking you. The sound effects and music is also good.



However the game has a huge flaw that renders it near impossible to play. The player's ship sprite is way too big and there is a noticeable joystick delay between moving the stick and the ship actually reacting. The problem with the ship being too big is quite bad because some parts of even level one are very narrow and this doesn't give you enough space to even move your ship out of the way of a single enemy! This coupled with the slow joystick response means you are often dead without being able to do much about it.



It is such a shame. If the ship sprite were smaller and the response faster this would be a very good shoot 'em up. However as it is you will quickly become frustrated by the level of difficulty these flaws create.



To be fair I've given the graphics and sound good scores because they are very nice. But I had to give a below average score for the gameplay due to the flaws, and this directly effects the lifespan of the game as you will quickly become frustrated and stop playing.
