Game Graphics Mechanics
Controls are fine, I got used to it really quick.

I like the retro art style. However, there are some graphical elements I'd adjust
- the background image too bright and together with those trees, it camouflages some powerups (especially ammo) sometimes
- the "pixels" sizes are not consistent. I don't mind having finer pixel art objects in front of a coarse background, but the background alone has different levels of detail
- the health display should be more present

I know it's just a beta and you might not have concentrated on content much yet. But still: What is the goal? Is it just all about collecting coins? Is there any variety in difficulty (e.g. end bosses or huge waves of enemies)? I also think the "action" could need some tweaking. Try having more enemies or higher rate of fire, but have them dealing less damage, so difficulty overall stays the same.
