Thanks Pixel perfick, I got lots for sloppy code to fix and your right it's way to high of a resolution.

We've started to add some game elements so be sure and test those out and let us know:

Click http://www.dthomasdigital.com/NovaBreak/index3.html to go to the updated demo!

Added or changed:

- Da bomb now shows up on level one press x to use. Right now it's a timed event about every 20 seconds one shows up. I find it real hard to get to the bomb to increase the bomb count, (or we just can't fly our own ship) let us know if it works for you.
- Sounds and eye candy when you shoot a shield wall.
- User interface changes
- slowed down the rotation of objects on the "how to play" page.
- credits page now works.

Anyone get a chance to play level 2? Am I on the right track? I've made a bunch of changes, I'm stuck figuring out the best way to award stars for the bonus should be just based on score?

Well the one thing about games is the more you work on them the more bugs you introduce and we sure have been doing that. The latest demo has some real bugs and your help in finding them would be great. NOVA BREAK bug hunt, oh and it’s got 3 playable levels now.

So one thing I noticed, every level I played told me I was on Level 1.
Would be nice if the music was quieter.
Shouldn't be able to mouse-over any buttons while a level is loading.
Would be neat to warp in at a random place.
Next level button should move to the next level instead of the level selection screen.
There's not much of a direction during levels, or real danger. I simply turned towards the boss and shot until I got through his shields.
Opening radio sound byte hurts at normal volume.
Maybe consider limiting rate of fire? It's really easy to spam the lasers, and no real reason not to. I could just rig up a macro, hahah.
Shooting star things on the level selection is kind of confusing. They look neat but are reeeally distracting.
Levels do not seem to save unless you hit "next level"? I went to the help screen and it didn't save completion of the first level.

Yeah, those're my quick thoughts and such.

Great feedback as always on this forum will look into your findings DatapawWolf. Funny you said something about the shooting star effect I was thinking the other day looks cool but a bit to much on that screen.
