  • I have to say this looks good! Love the effects on the Bullets. Interesting how this base defense has a rythm game feel to it, since my fingers sit at the number keys. I would make sure that you can only shoot a bullet at a time in order to maintain balance. I found I could spam all 4 at the same time (which looks really cool), but makes things a little too easy. Great job and awesome level of polish! I really enjoyed watching your consistent updates and really hope to see you at the next jam!

  • Excellent submission. You have a solid style in the type, robots, and effects. I could see a lot of possibilities for combos. One thing to consider is that it is possible to press all four keys down (or press them in a quick nearly simultaneous sequence). This is not a bad thing by any means and I don't think you should prevent someone from doing it, how might it work in your design? Something to slow the robots or block the door could be cool. If you run with this idea, I wonder how you might scale the player's capabilities along with the robots getting harder/faster?
