143800. Pace is good, as are the weapon upgrades. Couple of thoughts:

1) Instead of getting upgrades automatically at certain points, maybe drop upgrades randomly that have to be picked up?
2) I find it irritating that I can't see the entire field at once. There's plenty of enemies too make this difficult enough without being surprised by a swarm offscreen.

Bombs are kinda lame since you don't get points killed by the bomb, and as DingDingDao pointed out you can't see half the enemies anyway so it's hard to know when to use them for maximum effectiveness.

This is similar to another game I've played. I can't remember the name of it now, but you could play online or download the game. There were weapon upgrades, shields, health, etc.

Hmm this is basically geometry wars but with hand drawn enemies instead of glowy geometric ones

Instead of a bomb that gets everything on the screen, make one that explodes in a smaller radius just around you. That way you can use it in a pinch right before a whole bunch of guys get you.

Yeah, still not bad if you just want to play a game for a few minutes though.

Not geometry wars. It had aliens and bosses. Weapon power-ups. Same square environment, same key configuration.

It was a sick game.
