Feedback from the experts

Spartez Team: The game is a bit too simple so there is not a lot that I can comment. I would try to make the gameplay a bit more diverse, add more enemies weapons, etc. About code: - from the code style, I can see that you are probably not a JS developer and more C programmer, keep the js code in a separate file and use tools like prettier to take care of this - code consistency - sometimes you are using camelCase and sometimes snake_case pick one and use one everywhere (camelCase is pretty much default in JS ), sometimes your functions are using upper case letters and some are starting from lower case letter (in JS the old convention was that the function with UpperCase name was an object factory that you would later call new on) - game loop - the game loop should be done in this way as it's not taking into consideration the load on main thread and time that has passed between renders https://isaacsukin.com/news/2015/01/detailed-explanation-javascript-game-loops-and-timing this is a good article that describes how to write a proper game loop that works in a browser
