@Rao Thanks for testing! The turn rate is something I'll consider changing, although I've been playing with that in particular quite a bit (since enemies come from all 360 degrees) and I'm happy with it. Hitting starcraft when they're plenty far away is how you get enough time to maneuver your considerable dragonly girth.
@Anopob The whelps can't have life bars because of the Locust ability that makes them uncontrolled by the user. Would putting a whelp life average in the scoreboard be a good solution?
@both... should I make the starcraft able to strike at you from a greater distance? It will make the game more challenging to be sure.
