This is unbelievably cute and surprisingly well made, I hope your nephews and nieces are touched by this.
Clearly a very well crafted, well rounded game with a lot of playability and moderate re-playability, I need not sing your praises here as the fruits of your labours are evident to anybody who bothers playing.
Some flaws which I fear to those of a weaker disposition than I might consider fatal.
1. Auto-switch to Best Weapon when picked up - these days it is a standard (I am aware this is something not favoured by all, so it should be available from the settings menu) that when a weapon considered more powerful or ranked higher is picked up you should switch to that weapon
2. Auto-Switch when weapon is out of ammo - this one I believe is fatal, too often when playing I find myself (for want of a better phrase) with my dick in my hands, clicking absently with some plasma rifle that's out of juice as my opponent fires rounds into my head, the player won't at first know, less due vigilance is payed that they've run out of ammo, so this should be rectified by an auto-switch component.
3. Online Play - if properly implemented, a massive bonus.
This rectifications twinned with what is already a lovely game with a lot of scope would make for an unrivaled genius.
