WOW! The first thing that struck me was those graphics (really took me back to the ol' TI-83 days, which I LOVE!) I love the control setup, the movement with WSAD and shooting with the arrow keys, it's awesome how the gun shoot in whichever arrow key you press- which gives it a very different dynamic than the average, platformer (I've never really seen that shooting style implemented before and I really enjoyed it). Everything about it is so crisp and clean and beautifully simple and challenging without being unfair. The instant respawn was a great way to learn from your mistakes quickly which I felt really added to the gameplay. Now, I have to figure out how to beat it without dying so I can get the alternate ending! AwEsOmE JoB!!!!!!!!

I couldn't wall jump to save my life (literally!). It's too bad, as it looks really well done, would love to be able to play though the whole thing. I'll give it a few more tries later, but nice job - looks and sounds great.

Thanks all for the comments! I'm really glad you all like the game. For the ones interested, if you don't die you get another final ending haha. 

I like the aesthetic a lot! With the way the jumping and enemies are currently tuned, I felt a bit frustrated about not having a diagonal shooting option. The video link is not working.

I found the game super elegant both mechanic wise and story wise. The game is challenging and fun, I still haven't beaten the game yet after trying at least 15 times now (I guess I suck)! Good work! 

Cool little game!  Simple but efficient art style.  I like the wall jump!  It's probably per design, but I'm not too keen on using the arrows to shoot though as enemies come to you diagonally so it can be a bit fiddly to aim.  Mouse aim would have made it a bit easier for clumsy players like me ;)

Very entertaining to play, and challenging, great work. Loved the simplistic art style aswell.

That ending is really something. Very cool jump and gun and fairly balanced!

This was very enjoyable and the save points were well needed. The ending was unexpected and very funny once I realized what I was looking at. The level is well crafted and the variety of enemies was a nice touch. Well done!

I like this type of game, beautiful aesthetics, nice color pallet and top notch effects haha, really cool
