Interesting controls for an old game.
I like to see people trying new things and attempting innovation! Props for that. However, I don't think this is quite perfect.
Perhaps if you could still move your ship Independence from your mouse I would enjoy it more. As is, I was frustrated that I couldn't shoot at anything that was near the bottom of the screen without being hit by it.
I accidentally used the bomb a number of times, I would place that button elsewhere.
The visuals, while pretty, made me a tad nauseous (especially when it did the speeding up motion, which seemed to serve no purpose aside from making me sick).
Finally, I agree with others that you needed a boss or something to help climax the action. Still an entertaining game with a new look at a classic play style!
