RightClick: Shoot
LeftClick: Place Trap / Buy Trap
SpaceBar: Open/Close doors.
MouseWheel: Scroll through trap bar.

Hi, Was just wondering, is it intentional that you can only fire to the right? Would also be cool to have a window option as fullscreen was a bit much for me. Way ahead of anything I can make though :) Good job

You should be able to shoot in both directions, the player shoots to where the mouse is, the fullscreen might have messed up the mouse positioning.
You also cant shoot while moving

How does the trap placement work? You buy a trap on the shop, it shows on the bar below, and then you click on the bar to place a trap? Where can you place traps?

You do not have to click on the bottom bar to select the trap, you just left click anywhere on the screen while the shops not open.
You select traps by using the scroll wheel.

The option for Window Mode would be very nice as the fullscreen mode messed up my display after the program exits. I enjoyed the game though!! Nice music and game play, sadly it keeps crashing on me.

Cool game but the music was a bit loud. Would be nice with a volume slider somewhere.

I played the first two levels without buying traps.. then I tried to buy and place a trap on the third level, suddenly a crash.

Windows vista with intel Duo T7300 (asus laptop).

Ok so you both crashed on the third Level? Hmmm, I think I may know what went wrong. Thanks for telling me!
