The PCB design is awesome.

The original game is on itch.io for free, however, you need Java installed to run it:

It's also available on Android with ads:

I like it.

Live-streaming the attract mode now. Also playing a bit, but with terrible lag, need a video-splitter so I can play properly while streaming. :)

Gameplay looks awesome (11 minutes in).

As for the attract loop, the cuts are IMO too fast. The tile foreground also appears out of nowhere, could do with the curtain animation like you have it when it disappears.

Also, all great games have an empty title screen at first and the logo then appears with a barrage of explosions :awe: (do you have a friend with a cool voice that you could record saying TWIN TIGER SHARK (NOT THE SAME), and play it when it happens? :lol:)

Attract loops are always tricky to do while the game isn't finished, as it will mean that the "player" will fail if bullets has become faster/slower etc due to fine tuning of the difficulty for example. I'm sure that it will look great when the game ships. :)
