A little pod racer - this guy's nimble!
No armament, but he's nimble.  He's even got flames shooting out of his engine!  Turns are especially fast, with the pods further out from the center of mass.  He has more fuel than he needs, though, and more energy, too. (With low consumption, those flamers draw 17 power total.)

The logic controls the thrusters, which are in four groups.  Two groups per keypress.  Thus all forward thrusters are used to accelerate forward, but you still retain a little manuevering capacity. (You'll turn a lot faster if you stop forward thrust, though.)

Here's a test-run where I practice dodging some homing bullets.

Let me know if you can't get to it, I may have to throttle imgur until it cooperates.  The link in the img tags is a proper gif, but same host.

I see it now! even in the original post - unsure why it wasn't loading before.
That is some maneuverability it has!! Nice work.

I especially liked seeing the enemy bullets hit and destroy each other.  I didn't notice that this could happen until I made that .gif.
