I don't have a lot of useful comments, but I wanted to point
out how cool the little tanks look...

I dunno, I kind of like the challenge of not getting too close
maybe the shields themselves could take like 4 or 5 hits to go away

And I know it might be truer to an original in the current mode,
but would it be cooler to have the main player be a tank as well?
Or change the helicopter to an overhead view? 

Or maybe (and I know I rely on this idea way too much) make 
the game easier in other ways, but then a bit harder by giving
the copter a bit of inertia.  I'm thinking of something a little
bit like omega race, though with out the "asteroids"-esque

I guess the trick is most of the really cool suggestions for 
this general game involving needing more sprites...(or maybe
I've been playing too much Bangai-O lately with its 100s 
and 100s of enemies and missiles and all...)
