tomos:
How will that work?

I've no idea. You're the coder/gamer/designer :D :P
I can see that it might be problematic - you cant 'steal' simple mouse movements I guess.
There may be other ways of implementing?
Possibly a bit complex:
Mouse + two keys (say Ctrl+Appskey) = Fire
Mouse + one of the above keys (Ctrl) = Rotate
-
that's problematic too I guess...

Gamewise, as said above, the union of the two is problematic imo. But maybe I should just look at it as a challenge!

Maybe also the option to use Left/right-arrows to rotate - that might be good -
Plus another key to shoot. That could be the keyboard alternative to the mouse.
EDIT// and eventually we could move (?) with the spacebar...

Deozaan:
I think that having to press 2 buttons as well as move the mouse will just be too confusing. I think what I'll do also allow you to press the spacebar to aim+shoot. Wherever the mouse cursor is pointing is where you'll turn to shoot.

the spacebar + mouse sounds good :up:

mouser:
What about simple impulse movement using cursor keys (up, down, left, right)?  That wouldn't be hard for player to do while aiming and shooting.

I'm planning on making this game available for Android, too. Which means I'd like to keep the controls simple enough to use on a touch screen. Personally I'm not a fan of those virtual joysticks. They're hard to use properly without the tactile feedback an actual joystick provides.
