Hey Brentacon, nice to see some more aussies using c2.
Game is looking good, I like the graphics and the parallax movement.
The gameplay itself is looking pretty fun too. It does feel a little weird though the way the ship can move 360 degrees. I don't know if you will be interested but there was an old nes game called Macross where your character could go into 3 different combat states; a ship, half ship half man, man.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EkDD3bMfnR0
The ship would go faster where as the humanoid version was slower but much more flexible in terms of movement. It could be fun if you incorporated this kind of thing into your game. The ship could drive more like a car (with a 360 turret) while your humanoid version could move the way it does in your video.
Just a couple of thoughts, keep up the good work either way.
