* Fixed bug in health bar/upgrade display
* Fixed missing sound for upgrade potion pickup
* Standardized which non-generated enemies appear on screen at level start. Levels 1-7 as in the arcade, and Death now appears consistently above level 8.
* Added interlaced color to title pic
* Removed Game Over screen
* Fixed shield upgrade bug (player was almost invulnerable!)
* Corrected enemy hit points (to 1-3, from 2-4)
* Weakened shot power upgrade--used to kill enemies outright, now does 2 HP damage.
