It's now playable ... need feedback on difficulty level as I find it challenging as is.. will be adding more aliens and them different play modes (different difficulties, current mode will be the easiest level)

Thanks for any feedback :)

Added 3 more alien types... added a method for adding the different aliens, and added a check for a level cleared... game currently halts at level clear...

Different levels, will have extra stuff and more aliens...

Much to hard for me😳.

Design ideas:
- Make the stars blueish (I tried, but I couldn't understand quickly which palettes you use)
- Set the priority flag of the text, so it appears in front of the sprites
- I think the spaceship colors of Emerald Derp Leader looked better (white)

I made an adjustment and addition to my palette:
- Normal: (0,0,0)(3,3,3)(3,2,0)(1,1,1) 003F2A15002A063000150000003F3815
0005160000053D2B000C0804003F2A15

- Second: (0,0,0)(3,2,0)(0,3,3)(1,1,1) 003F2A15002A06300015000000380F15
0005160000053D2B000C0804003F2A15

These are all based on the same thing: https://ftl.fandom.com/wiki/The_Kestrel_Cruiser

@Timo, I think the first palette is the stars.

I think the respawn time should be quicker, because I didn’t realize it was there until I started it in my browser and went to see if I was dead.

Star colors are abit odd... the big stars use all 3 colors of set#0, the little stars use the first color of each sets#0,1,2 as the animation cells are all done in color one, to get 3 colors then without having to have 3 sets of little star animations, I simply use 3 pallets,, abit wasteful, but effective..

Thanks for the tips and help... I added animation to the player hit/rebirth :)

Please test the easier gameplay and see if it is ok or is it too easy.... thanks :) I've removed the dual button restriction...
