Hello fellow Stencyl(ers?)

Game
Updated: http://www.stencyl.com/game/play/29988

Not sure how to start this off, as this is my first game journal, but bare with me. I'll try to keep it short and consist.

I started working on this game about a year ago, first I simply wanted re-create the classic Asteroids game in Stencyl, to see if I was capable of doing it.  And I did, it worked perfectly (pretty much), after that I just kept adding stuff to it, power ups, player selection and more asteroids in a bunch of different shapes and sizes.

The version uploaded to the Arcade is about 1 year old, I stopped working on it because my life got in the way, and then I simply forgot about it.  But now it's time to bring it back.

How to play
Arrow keys to move
Spacebar to shoot
Esc to start a new game

So far
2 powers ups/downs implemented so far
     *Extra bullet
     *Wall
The different difficulties kinda work, seems like it at least.

Future plans/to do
Get the difficulties to work properly.
Add an enemy similar to the classic Asteroids game.
Implement more power ups, they're all pretty much done just have to make it work better with the game.
Multiplayer if I can figure out how to do it.
Highscore
Give the ships different advantages/disadvantages.
Tidy up the code and make it more versitile. E.g make it adapt to absolutely any size without ugly borders and what not.
Tidy up the graphics
Resizable window
Fix some bugs and other random stuff.

If you like it and/or discover any bugs (there's a few) please leave a comment :)

Pretty nice. Certainly feels like asteroids... :o

I did die once immediately at the start of the level when an asteroid spawned on top of me, even though the shield still showed up. Also, the resolution is a bit too big. Otherwise, you're nailing the asteroids feel rather well in my opinion.
Do NOT PM me your questions, because I likely will not respond. If I have replied to your question on the forum, keep using that topic. Thanks!

Here's a fixed version.  http://www.stencyl.com/game/play/29957

* Fixed die on spawn
*Changed a bunch of code that should allow me to adapt the game to any screen, seems to be working pretty well so far.
*Updated a bunch of graphics.
*Added more bugs?

Sure, I'll get on it later.     But further attention?
