Here are a few excerpts of what others who have played are saying:

"The particle effects, graphics, sound design and fine balance all contributed to a great and very polished game feel. My first 5/5 this LD." - Jesús González
"Great atmosphere! The music, particle effects, and fireworks explosion when killing an enemy were very well done." - BoxedMeatRevolution
"Very nice game and I love how everything was tied to the theme of space nicely." - John Snyder
"The result is pretty polished and complete." - Cassio Eduardo
"I like how turning is hyper precise but forward movement is clunky, it’s the right mix of fun and frustrating." - jjjjason
"Busting up enemy ships feels real good. Nice and clunky ship controls, too. Took a while to adjust but before long I was slingshotting all over the place." - DeathBySnail
"I got 2 kills with one shot, that felt awesome :D" - Marcus Otterstrom
