Love the art style and mechanics however i think it can be improved by making the light move faster and getting the total kills and high score working for the webgl build. Also sometimes i don't see anything in the light however i hear a bomb sound then a plane crashes to the base.

Hey, thanks for playing my game! 

The crash at the base means some plane sneaked by  unnoticed, which I get is kinda annoying given the speed of the light. The scoreboard is crashing randomly, still not sure why =/


The planes crash even though i don't see any thing in the light...Maybe they go behind/in front of the big airship and they aren't visible bc they're the same colour.

I took a look at the light speed and saw that it was set to a debug value i used for fine tunning, thank you for pointing it out.

Just submitted a bug fix regarding the highscore issue as well.

Thank you for your amazing feedback, feel free to give it another shot.
