Thanks for the critique, though I have NO clue what your first line means.
I tried that with the mouse at first, but then if the cursor goes behind the cannon, it points either all the way up or all the way down instead of the height the mouse is on.
This is just the first blush, I plan on adding a few things like power ups (instead of the cheat codes), recreating the images that are rips and adding to the animations. Plus more items to fill in a longer level and an actual scoring system.
(Odd Tidbit: If you go up and down, instead of more of a straight shot, your distance will be longer because it uses the player's traveled distance instead of the width of the screen.)
