Great demo. The retro filter works really well.
My only criticism is that there are some enemies who approach from the left of the screen without any warning early in the stage, which feels unfair. I think a player should be able to complete a level on the first try, but these enemies are impossible to dodge if you don't expect them. I'd either save them for a later stage, or give the player some kind of visual warning that they're about to arrive.

Thanks! :)

As this is a demo(nstration) stage, i put a lot into it, maybe too much for a first stage, idk. For my defense that "warning" icons were not common in R-Type 1/Darius 1 ages! (lazy answer i admit :p )

Niiice!

Those worm like eel like large enemies look sick.
Also, since you appreciate having your game compared to cool classics - that portrait type picture of the admiral type dude immediately made me think of Star Fox. What a classic. Good luck with everything!
