Looks neat, though it would be nice if you tried to work within GB constraints a bit more. Also on GB all shmups had WHITE space, because having a lot of black a) drains the batteries faster and b) does not look nice because of the ghosting the screen had.

Example
There are no ugly colours, only ugly combinations of colours.
