Hyper Ultra Astronautics 0.0.14 alpha released

In contrast to the previous alpha update only fixing a single bug, this one brings a lot of new stuff. In addition to the long list of visual and usability improvements, there is a new single fire weapon that can wipe the arena clean:

Many testers have felt that the ship is too hard to control due to inertia. However, I like the raw turn-and-thrust controls and so do most of the players once they get the hang of it. As a compromise, I have added an option to automatically use ship's side thrusters to dampen the lateral movement while thrusting. This makes maneuvering a bit easier without introducing any magical forces or friction. It is disabled by default and can be changed in the settings menu (Settings->Controller settings->Slide prevention). Please test it and let me know what you think!

Here's full list of changes since 0.0.13 alpha:

Updated packages are available for download on Itch.io page and the official game page has been updated.
