So I've been spending a lot of time on side hobbies lately to break from routine and the daily grind. I've been learning how to program and i started working on this game a couple months ago... chipping away at it every day. Today, I finally finished it and uploaded it to the google play store, and i'd really like to know what peoples first impressions of it are. It would be really helpful to me if you downloaded/took a look it here and gave me your first impressions of the gameplay. The game is free, but you don't have to play it to offer an opinion. You can also give me your first impression of the game based on the screenshots I'll post below, as well as the game description which ill get into now.
Basically, the inspiration for the game came from the old arcade game space invaders, if you've ever heard of it. i'm a really big sci fi fan, so i thought it would be a great idea for my first game to be something situated in space. The simple premise of the game is that aliens have invaded your sector of space in order to invade your homeworld, and you must take to space in your starship to defend it. Killing different types of enemies will earn your more and more credits, which you use to purchase things in-game that can help you progress, such as support ships, auto-turrets and extra lives, etc. You also have the ability to upload a replay of any level you've beaten to facebook, twitter, youtube or mail if you wish. It's not meant to be a super complex game, as im still just learning the ropes... but i'm really looking for feedback from people... especially if you frequently play games on your phone. Here are a few screenshots of what it looks like. Tell me what you think

How did you make that graphic of the planet?
The only critical comment I'll make is that you need better kerning with that font--sometimes letters blend into one another in a way that makes the text hard to read easily.
Terrific job overall, though.
