Hey Marco, fun game! While I never really figured out where I wanted to go, I think the movement feels great. Some things that could improve: please have a background for the instructions so they're easier to read. If you can, let the player out of the locked box to test the controls in a safe environment before playing for real. I got to shoot but couldn't practice movement. Also, I had trouble understanding when I could shoot again. Am I waiting for a timer? Picking up missed shots? I wasn't sure. Overall, I think that the feeling of really boosting up has a great sense of speed!
