That's some amazing concept. This can be easily expanded upon like, bullet size increasing. power-ups etc. but the foundation here is great. It can be a bit faster and 2D lights combined with bloom would make your game a lot better. But, I would say the main part is the foundation, and that is amazing here. Thanks for this game!

Please play and rate my game as well. I would really appreciate it! Thanks!! Cheers!!

Developer

Thank you for playing.

Im actually planing to work more on the game once the jam is over. Power ups are on my check list, but changing bullet size? Yeah, its pretty cool idea. At the beggining I wanted to mess around with the lighting and some bloom, but I havent tried them before and I didnt have that much time for research. 

If you wanna see how this project will develop concider following me on twitter and here on itch to be notified about all the upcoming updates (Or new versions) to this game. 

P.S.
Im going to play your game now!

I wish the movement is a bit faster, overall good game.

Developer

Thanks for playing!

Could've just been a simple twin stick shooter if it weren't for the space key to directly control your speed. That was a nice addition to give more freedom to the player

Developer

Thanks for playing my game!

Really good concept  the break momentum thingy is superlative idea, but maybe more acceleration might be much more better.

like it btw :3

Developer

Thanks for sharing your opinion. Yeah faster acceleration is a good idea. I will try to adjust that in next versions of the game :)

(+1)

I really like the concept behind this one!  My only suggestion is that maybe the player-character should have a little faster acceleration.  Other than that, great job!

Developer

Thanks for your advise, I'll keep it in mind when I will be polishing it after the jam is over.

That pink background was really good. I liked the concept of having to stop to shoot faster. I think the character should be a little bit faster, because sometimes it is impossible to dodge some bullets, but other than that, good job!

Developer

Thanks for playing my game. Yeah Player movement should be a bit faster. I should probably playtest  more my next game.

I will adjust the movement speed, and even add some new enemies after the jam so you can follow me if you want to get notified when this happens!

Submitted(+1)

Really fun game! Love the visual and effect, the gameplay is very fast pace and satisfying. I had a blast with this. Great job!

Developer

Im so happy you had a good time playing my game!

Im planning to add more enemy types, some level options, and progression system in the future so follow me to get notified when this happens!

Pretty fun wave shooter, though I would have greatly enjoyed the player following his forward direction (ie. if I press W, he goes in his forward direction, not just up regardless of his orientation), as that would've felt a lot more natural to me.

Developer

I'm glad you enjoyed it!

I see, I'm planning to continue working on that game after the jam is over and I'll try to add different ways of moving around,. This way players will be able to chose the most natural feeling to them :)

Concider following me to get notified about the updates!

Fun game! I don't know if it's just something weird with the browser, but I had a very limited viewing window which made it hard to find the ranged enemies who were normally shooting from out of the screen and moving fast enough that it was hard to track them down. Overall, a fun game that could use some polish. Good job!

Developer

Thanks for playing my game. Yeah I didnt fix it in time, the browser version is a bit weird, Its better to download and play that way if you have windows.

I will continue to work on that game after the jam, and will definitely try to fix the UI issue, add new enemies, some progression system. So if this sounds fun for you concider following me to get notified about the updates! 

Submitted(+1)

Oh! I didn't realize there was a download version. I'll give your game another try!

Developer

Thanks! Hope it's a bit more playable

Submitted

Alright, that was much better. I played it some more and really enjoyed how the difficulty ramped up with more and more enemies. One minor annoyance was that when I cancelled my momentum to start shooting faster, there would be a little delay before the speed increase took effect. Good luck on polishing the game up, it has potential!

Submitted(+1)

The mechanics are really cool, and the gameplays fun. I think it could've used some more polish though

Developer

Thanks for rating and playing my game, Im glad you've enjoyied it!

Yeah I know, Im working on upgrading the game, making better UI, polishing the enemies and other mechanics.
If you are interested in that follow me to get notified about games updates  :)

Hey ! Great take on the theme! The try again UI does not match the scene and has scope for improvement! Visuals arent the best but fine for a jam! Looking forward to the game's updates if there are any!

Developer(+1)

Hey, thanks for a feedback! 
I know the UI looks weird if you play it in browser, I failed to notice it before the submission time was over.

There will definitely be updates to this game (Or new , improved versions) so follow me if you are interested :)

Submitted(+1)

Hey followed! :d

Developer(+1)

Thanks!

Submitted(+1)

great! implemented the theme very well! I also really liked the background to the game and the background music. the game over menu could look a little bit better but other than that great job!!

Developer

Thanks, it was my first game jam and this means a lot :)

Follow me if you wanna get notified about updates to this game (making better UI will be the 1st thing I'll do)

Submitted (1 edit)

this is also my first game jam also! hope to see some amazing projects in the future!

This game should score well in nailing the concept! Well done! 

Developer

Thanks, Im so happy you've liked it!

Hi! This is one of the best executions of this kind of concept I've seen in the jam so far. I really like the ability to stop all momentum, it makes the movement feel a little more fair. I do wish that the player accelerated a little faster, so that bullets were easier to dodge. I also was frustrated by the camera keeping the player too close to the edge of the screen at higher speeds, making it very hard to dodge enemies that are just offscreen. 

The visual style was also really nice, with a little tweaking I think this can be a really solid game!

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad you liked it, gonna try to improve the aspects you've pointed out. 

Submitted(+1)

Nice work. I loved that background! I moving around with the FX out the back, on that BG without having the shoot anything was the most fun for me. The camera did struggle to kept up with the character, especially on the Y axis and I did fly around without encountering any enemy for like 5 minutes or so but lots to enjoy in this game! 

Developer

Thanks for playing my game, Glad you liked it. Yeah you're right, camera needs a bit polish, and it may be a bit hard to find enemies when you fly away from them and thats my bad

Submitted(+1)

nice game, the unique visual style fits the game well, the trippy background are great. I would make the game a bit faster thou, and amp up a bit the firerate making the difference between moving and saying still more noticiable. Also the movement is a bit weird and the camera should be centered at all times. Overall a great entry with a nice presentation

Developer(+1)

Thanks for advices! I'll keed them in mind when polishing this game after the jam is over. You are right with centered camera, it feels bad to aim with mouse when perspective changes as you move around.
still, glad you had fun with it!

Submitted(+1)

A nice unique take on a classic genre! The camera can be a little annoying, but the interesting slow to shoot faster mechanic is really fun!

Developer

Thanks, I'm happy you liked it!
