Really interesting idea. I think you could do more upgrades like maybe adding some powerups. At the beginning of course it's easy to stay alive but i thinks you did this on purpose because no one wants to die instantently. Also i have to say the aesthetics works very fine. You did a really nice job! It remembers me to the film Sausage Party!
