  • I love the simple style of game. I feel like audio could be improved a lot with background music and there being a sound effect for the blimp exploding and a bigger explosion when the blimp exploded.

Really great idea.  The big balloon had a lot of health which was quite frustrating to deal with but the game itself was really fun!!

Thank you for playing!
The zeppelin was going to be the "level boss" but we added it earlier so that people would see it before closing the game.

Great aesthetics and cool concept of using masks. Would prefer if the searchlight was faster to move.

Thank you for playing the game and for your feedback!
We were going to implement an upgrade system to improve the speed and width of the light, plus the damage and fire rate of the AA gun. Didn't had the time though =/

Loved the aesthetic of the game. The stylized silhouettes of the aircraft look very professional. The sound effects were also nice (though could use some more diversity). One thing that I wish the game had was more variation in the behavior of enemies. Instead of just having all enemies moving in a straight line to the left, have some change elevation making it more difficult to track them with the light. All together, this is one of the more polished (and fun) entries I've played from this jam. Great job! 

Also nice touch with the planes falling, indicating your final score.

Thank you for your review, It's amazing you liked it!
We had plans to implement a sort of kamikaze that would do a dive towards the light, but didn't had the time =/

(I have tons of fun looking at the highscore too)

very cool game but the quit button if you die doesn't work

Thank you for playing my game!

I think that is just the way Unity exports to WebGL, it works fine in Windows and Mac though.

I played it on windows

it's fun. baloon had a lot of health though. And I think planes can hide behind it and can pass without anti air gun not shooting the plane but I'm not sure. I may just have missed a plane passing by. Still enjoyed the experience

Glad you enjoyed it.

Yes, there is one plane in particular that manages to stay in the belly of the zeppelin almost the whole time. It always gets me too ;)

The graphics were great. The airplane sound was really annoying. I'd recommend lower the sound or just have it play less frequently. Also, maybe have indication that a specific aircraft is firing at me.

The game definitely fits the theme and has a pleasing aesthetic, but the plane sound effects quickly become grating and the controls often feel a bit unresponsive.

Thank you for the feedback, We'll definitely improve the speed of the light in a next build.
