  • Congrats on the well-rounded, polished, complete game! It's beautiful, has great controls, and it's one of the most fun games I've played so far this year. I particularly liked the roguelike-ish prefixes on the items, that was a nice touch. I also really liked the limited screen size and the darkness, it really added to the tension. Nicely done!
  • Not very roguelite'ish, but still the random level generation and power modules give a nice impression of variety. The learning curve is well adjusted. I had alot of good fun with it and have to admit I sank a bit into it. Also it just looks nice with its dark atmosphere lighted by bursting bullets.

I liked the mood of the game. The loot mechanic kept me going for more good weapons. Good work!

I thought the gameplay was very rewarding and liked how there was a degree of tactics and strategy involved in my decisions in game.

thanks! I was afraid the gameplay would be too monotone in the early-mid stages, glad you liked it!

I love this. Played for almost an hour, just couldn't stop! I would be interested to see this a bit more fleshed out. I also don't know if there's an ending, but I was deep into the fire zone when I died. Good work!

Thanks! we're working on some updates that include online coop which was almost functional but had to be left out because of bugs :)

There's an ending on level 10 if you can survive that long, I recommend investing in enough movement speed and making sure you got plenty of ammo to survive the latter stages :)
