because something like this would (imho) be better.

I find myself getting overwhelmed very easily. Things move a little too fast for me, but it could be just because I'm old (you know, people in their late 30's can't play video games).

Cool though. I saw it the other day when I was browsing the Steam Greenlight games.

Everybody has their own opinion. I agree with Nixola that adding makes way more sense. Especially with the 1.2 number suggested; it puts too much of the weight onto the speed of the avatar. What if, later, he implemented acceleration rather than a fixed speed? When the player starts moving the arrows will go from dropping at his feet and as his speed increases start arcing higher into the sky when really they should have some fixed distance with the additional velocity of the avatar.

Exactly. Additive is how it works in the real world anyway.

Maybe he could implement that as a powerup?
