Added Gameplay Manual

Because some questions came up about the player ship's hit box size and other details I wrote a short manual for this.

Nordenfelt is a steampunk shoot 'em up game for Windows.

The game is set in an alternative history timeline where steam-powered machines are still the state of the art. Mechanical behemoths are invading the lands, just to get shredded to pieces by you.

I can't seem to run it, and I've yet to see fixes online, so, meanwhile, I can't recommend this. Which is a shame, it looked fairly interesting.

Until this gets proper controller support, along with fixes to some game pausing/stopping issues... Pass.

And to the developer, you have a good foundation here to build upon, but you may want to research what makes a SHMUP not only playable, but enjoyable.

Granted, I initially missed a certain component in the system requirements: section, which requires the player to have Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 installed in order for the game to run successfully.

Now, that I've managed to remedy this issue, I'm having a blast! (pun intended)

The game nicely integrates components of bullet-hell style SHMUPS with a buyable upgrade system, enabling you to augment your weapon systems to your liking from one level to the next levels.

With attractive visuals, nice particle effects, and an invigorating orchestral soundtrack, this title effectively captures the steampunk vibe integral to its setting that is every bit as fun as it is pretty.

One may find the player's hit-circle to encompass a slightly larger surface area than the miniscule center-of-the-center-of-the-center-of-the-center hit detection component prevalent in CAVE-style shooters, so veterans of this genre may wish to steer slightly clearer of incoming projectiles than they're accustomed to. Not to suggest that the game isn't well balanced, and the difficulty level is nicely compensated for with the ability to replay the most recent level in which you perished.

Definitely a recommendation. A+
