Good Work!

I really like the visuals and the generel gameplay idea.

Here are some things I think could be improved:

-Music and sound:

Even though the background sound sets a great mood in the beginning, I think some more aggressiv music during the actual gameplay would support the game feel. I also would add an explosion sound when the asteroids get destroyed.


I feel the game could be faster and more tight. Maybe decrease the asteroids health and increase the spawn amount? I think there is to much idle time every now and then. Maybe also increase the start rotation speed?

These are just some random thoughts I got while playing. Overall I really like the game.

Hey thanks, I really appreciate your feedback!
