Things to Include in Future Updates
Implementing more guns with some sort of leveling up system or gun unlocking missions is a must have in a future update. Also, you start out the game with three lives. A game like this would be much more polished with a heath bar that reduces when damage is taken. There is no way to gain a heart either so once you lose a life its gone.
