Some... 'interesting' design choices (motherships don't shoot???) but technically quite nice :)

The station & robot & whatnot does all shoot at you, but is thankfully not too hard to avoid. Most enemies do have a "blind spot" where you can hide temporarily .. or you can make a blind spot by quickly taking down 1-2 of the turrets. The extremely fast diagonal shots is usually what gets you. Of cause the true test in the game is if you have the patience to not shoot wildly & blow yourself up with a overheating laser.

Toughest is getting thru the meteor storms. Definately some "balancing" issue with the gameplay but i do like how random everything is in the game (random space station layouts, storms, colour of ships, name of pilots, etc).
