This was a cool little game, but I did run into the same bug as bodgrank. I don't know if you care but thats a pretty easy fix if you just change 0= gameover to 0>= gameover

It has a bug where you continue alive even with negative lives, i realized that i was not dying when i was on -20 lives lol

I love the concept of the plane tilting its shots and think more shoot-em-ups should do this! However, using the mouse buttons for shooting is extremely awkward on a laptop with only a touchpad. Could the shooting keys be doubled on the left and right arrow keys? It was also odd having to figure out that Space Bar, not Enter, selects menu entries. It would be very helpful if these controls were described somewhere in the main menu of the game itself or in a Readme file.
