The explosions are IMO a bit too short. You should fade them a bit
slower or maybe make some double explosion sounds.

Yup, that one is the best.

How about picking up some sinking debris for refueling and ammunition?
And could the bouncing torpedos be faster (e.g. 2x)? Now they are IMO
too easy to evade. Some water bombs wouldn't be bad too. Or some ships
could need more than one hit.

Have fun!
