Fun game so far, but I would add an upgrade system that can be accessed after each wave or after a few waves. Also the recharge of the missiles seems to fast making the game a bit to easy. Overall it's a very fun game so far and excited for its development.

hey good game though i did beat both chapters on first try. maybe make the missile bank based on number of houses still alive or something like that. i dont think an upgrade system would be a good idea at this stage but maybe eventfully make an upgrade system based on beating a chapter lets u upgrade for better stuff in the next chapter. just a few thoughts, great start though and will be following the game ;)

Thanks for the feedback guys, good suggestions! We're still experimenting on how to approach the powerup/upgrades for the game at this point. Upgrades are tempting but we're trying to keep things simple too so it's a bit of a dilemma right now :)

Interesting, but why go for 3D when 2D would have been easier and looked a lot better?
I like the music and theme, but I also think a game like this could use more humor :P

It's also very unclear where the meteorites can hit, because of the graphics.
Adding fog a slight fog/tint to the bg would help. Or you could experiment with outlines.
