Thanks guy's for the kind words.
@robotecollective thanks for the link, much appreciated. I can certainly see what you mean, that artist is great, but i've had a commission lined up on deviant art for some time. All i will say is that the game is going to look amazing.
@Windwalker glad it's working ok. Most of the engine is done now, just going to update the score and enemy health interface, finish coding the map screen and add save / load ability, then update graphics and fx, and start designing the levels. Have to start thinking about music and sound too, but will probably leave that until last.
