It'd be really nice if it used any other keys. Ctrl + arrow keys changes virtual desktops on my machine, and why does it use right-shift to do stuff but doesn't allow you to use left shift for the same control? Why do are there five controls to be used by the right hand, but only one for the left?
It really, desperately needs at least one instructions screen (how do you kill the enemies? What exactly are the 3 bars on the left?).
Also, don't listen to mouser: the sound effects are awesome, I'd love it if it had a few more (man-made, that is).
I just read the link. that helps, but please make it larger
. Ideally, however, it should be somewhere in the game itself.
The shift problem is probably related to me being in a mac, I recommend switching from ctrl/alt/shift to z/x/c or something like that.
