Hi, Mr. jwiggs. I found a small bug in the console, which is the game will break down if you only type "?"
Also, I have a not bad idea for a new weapon when I was playing with weapons' properties. If you make a weapon have a 'projectileknockback' with a negative number, the enemy will be pull towards your spacecraft. This kind of weapon will work well with spykes, and if the enemies equip this kind of weapon, the players will have so much ‘fun’ when fighting.
I think close combat type is not strong enough, especially in later realms.
One more thing to tell, the update called "enemy boosting" is great, but it will also lead an OP way (kiteflying) to play. Players can easily win any enemy by keep moving to the left and shooting to the right, in this way, an enemy can never hurt players, but players can still cause damage.
In the end, love this game a lot, and looking forward to next update. >_<
