I played trought the campain from the beginning with the S-116 Wasp (Windows version).

On the level Starship Down i discovered that you could ram into enemys with your shield from your special to damage them. When i tried to ram into one of the enemies, witch has a shield infront of it and shoots homing missiles, i died while the shield was still up. After respawning and playing for a while i noticed that i couldn't take any damage. I'm not 100% sure that trigged the glitch. I also got sometimes randomly instantly killed by nothing. The glitch carried over to the rest of the missions. [Fixed]

I got to The Storm level with the invincibility glitch still in effect and got to the huge ship at the end of the level. I got to the third "ring" and there was no way through. I think the rings are supposed to move in a circle, witch they weren't. They weren't moving at all. Then i tried to run into the outside part of the ring i got sucked into the ring towards the middle but i could still not pass through. I have no idea what trigged this glitch.

Another glitch i found was that you could use the mouse in the menu but the pointer wasen't visible. [Fixed]

Thanks for the feedback!

We are about to release a patch that should fix the invincibility and mouse bug.
As for the circles not moving ... this is weird ... we will look into it asap.

Nice! Seems that you have fixed the invincibility and mouse glitches. Nice of you to fix these.

I forgot that i found another bug on the level The Storm. The square turrets that emerge from the sea dropped powerup that i couldn't pick up. They seemed to be stuck behind the playfield. The bug happend on the previous version so I'm not sure if you have fixed it.

I also found a new bug on the highscoreboard. I had submitted my score on the pervious version and only the highest score got saved. After the patch it now creates a new score. This score saves only the highest score and leaves the previous score alone.

Edit: The game seems to crash then you die and use your special at the same time (Was using Wasp on the survival level).
Edit2: The game seem that it crashes then you die after surviving a long time in survival mode, not by using special and die at the same time.
