Catchy, I also like those simple waveforms smile
You asked constructive criticism, so I will try to help, giving my personal thoughts.

- You can guess the end of the track is quite brutal. But even for a unfinished work or a test, I personally like to render a bit more after the track, so last notes leave some echo/reverb : not "cut" effect. Easy and efficient smile
- My ears are a bit tired after working on my own tracks, but I think the delay is note sync with the tempo of your track. most of the time in electro or chiptune, I feel a tempo sync between the delay and the track make it really cool. for example echo delay on 1/2 note. In software like Ableton, you can set a different delay between left and right, you can try left:8 and right:4 smile
- I think an intro without kick could be good for this track, maybe with the melody coming from distance? The track starts really fast
- Maybe a little vibrato or volumee change could be a good idea on your saw lead, to add some details
- Probably personal tastes, but the kick is a bit loud for me.

Hope it can help, have a nice day!
