Nice job. I really like the title screen and the overall aesthetic. Not sure why but when I pass the half way point the bat begins to move extremely slow and there is not enough bug to eat to survive. Replayed several times and had the same issue.

Hola, Vimlark! Cheers for the comments - I thought the bat slowdown was due to an unused lighting effect taking up system memory but I removed that so I'm still not sure what's causing it...!  I'll take a look at everything again after the jam and see if I can fix it!

I really love the retro aesthetic and the whole look and feel of the game. The white on dark background gives it kind of a gothic look. And also the use of sound. It's awesome, especially on the title screen. I just wish controlling the bat could have been made more fun. I cannot pinpoint on what is lacking but the overall experience isn't enough to make me want to play more. 

Also, I encountered a crash. Here's the screenshot of the Code Error:

Cheers for the comments, adity! I appreciate you taking the time to give it a go and for posting the crash error - after the jam, I'll have a proper look at the game again and see how I can tweak it. I wonder if maybe making the bat just a *little* faster would help...?

The bat moves relatively slow. It's an interesting concept though. It's hard to avoid the weapons. I enjoyed the fact that the actual file name is, yknow....

Cheers for the comment, IndiCode! I'm looking at tweaking the game a little after the jam :)
