Hello I finally played your game! It's fun! It looks cool and the black hole was interesting! I was slightly confused at first, but eventually i figured it out.

cool game , I like the black hole mechanic that sucks the enemy bullets away from the player. challenging but fun.

Developer

Hi DeeRaghoo, thanks for checking it out, we really appreciate it! Glad you liked the blackhole.

Submitted(+2)

I really liked this one, although I didn't really know what I was doing at first, after that, I had a really fun time, good job man!

Developer

Thanks for checking it out. I would love to hear what confused you at first. We would love to improve.

I liked the game. The gravity makes for some intersting ways to attack and not all enemies can be easily killed by just spamming them with alien-spawn. The game should start fully zoomed out imo. I didn't notice you can zoom out at first. Also the enemy that destroys your black hole felt a little unfair when you don't always see it or know that its there. Another problem I could see is that it isnt clear when you've healed from catching enemies in your black hole.

Otherwise the game is good and I can see the potential in it.

Developer

Thanks! You're right, have your black hole been destroyed from miles away isn't fair lol .And the healng mechanic too!

Developer

Hi! Thanks for your feedback. I agree and with every point you made and plan to improve. Thanks for taking the time to check it out :)

Nice concept and nice music. It reminds me of a very similar jam game that I played months ago.

Developer (1 edit)

Thanks for stopping by! Interesting! Any chance you know what that game is anymore? I'm curious to check it out, I thought we were pretty original X)

It's not the "same game" but it reminds me a little bit haha.

Developer

I totally see it! Thanks for finding it for me!

Developer

Thank you!

Nice game. The music felt a little too ambient for the style of game, but the art was amazing. It stayed very consistent the whole game which was surprising considering how well detailed it was. Nice job.

Developer

Hi Gamerblook23! Thanks for stopping by. In our next project, we plan to fix the music, so thank you for your feedback on this. Currently, it ramps up as the game goes on. Thanks for taking the time to stop by! :)

Developer

Thanks for your thoughts! In the beginning, the music is very ambient, but as the waves progress, the music intensifies!

Good game! I got to wave 11 and I think at that point the amount of bullets can be a bit unfair since it is not easy to dodge all of them nor are you meant to I assume, but I really like the main mechanic. It is satisfying to look at all of the bullets swirling around the black hole and I love that it has multiple uses. The fact that you can heal by consuming enemies with it really makes you think about the right time to use it instead of just spamming it at all times. I think it would be better if there was some way to increase your damage for the later waves as dealing with a lot of enemies can take some time. With that said, it looks great, it's a good concept and most importantly it's pretty fun!

Hi SpiceyCatto! Thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I am beginning work on a successor to this game and we plan to have a proper progression system. Stay tuned for a post about that :)

Submitted

Very cool concept! Every black hole changes the way you have to play - really enjoyed it overall. Audio and visual design were also excellent. Great work!

Developer

Hi Billbobphil, I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for taking the time to play it and stop by to give it a review! We're quite proud of the blackhole mechanic.

I found this game quite cool!
Smooth and polished visuals (other than when you run into the edge of the map), and interesting concept. Love the way all of the bullets swirl around the blackhole.
My main complaint would be that it was very difficult to see the darker enemy bullets against the background. Other than that, fun concept, and pretty good execution.

Developer(+1)

HiTyrant, I really appreciate you taking the time to review our game. I'm glad you liked it. 

Im sorry the darker bullets are hard to see. They actually glow white, but we last-minute swapped to webgl and it broke the visuals of that bullet x) 

Thank you though!

Crazy amount of  mechanics, really liked it, did took a bit but after some time, i actually felt great with the moves i managed to pull of, great stuff

Developer (1 edit)

Oh man! I'm so glad you liked it! :) Thanks for taking the time to check it out! We are proud of the number of mechanics we could fit in.

pretty creative game! there's a lot of game mechanics here, i'm impressed that you finished all of this in the jam's time.

Developer

Thanks! :) It was definitely a grind to get it all there, but we had a great team of people that worked so fast! Thank you for the feedback!

Nice entry ! Well made, Loving the gravity weapon ;)

I have some difficulties with the controls, that remove some fluidity to the game, but btw it’s a really nice game !! Well play

Developer

Hi! Thank you for your kind words!
Other people have had the same difficulty with the controls, this feedback is very helpful. We will have that in mind

Developer

Hi Kalinka, thanks you for the feedback, I would love to know what felt clunky about the controls. Others have said its the movement. Is this what you experienced?

I'm glad you enjoyed it! Thanks :)

Thank you for your compliment :)

The black hole mechanic is really neat, and the ship designs were really cool too. Nice entry!

Developer

I'm glad you liked it. We are proud of our enemy design and worked hard on it. Thanks a lot! :)

Submitted(+1)

Solid idea, the black hole as a mechanic worked really well, it reminded me of the Black Hole Gun in Enter the Gungeon, and worked basically just like that! It makes enemy bullets sink into it, but also affects the trajectory of your own "bullets", so you really have to think where to put it! Controls were clear and worked well. I didn't like the fact that you can take dmg from your own spawns, I understand the idea behind it, but for me it was a bit much. Maybe it just takes some time to get used to, though :)

Overall, a very solid entry, good job!

We'd also appreciate big time if you had time to check out our submission! :)

Hi Nordic, I will check yours out now! Thanks for taking the time to review ours. I got a lot of feedback saying the self-damage was bad or just a bit too strong and is something we will look into changing in the future. Thanks so much! :)

Submitted(+2)

very clean art direction 

Developer

Thanks, Clark! Appreciate the feedback! Hope you enjoyed it!

Submitted(+2)

The game is really cool to play with. Your primary attack following you around makes for some really cool trick-shots and what not. The black hole attack is also super interesting to use, both offensively and defensively. There's a wide variety of enemies, which makes the game really interesting. The enemies are usually quite tough and tank though... It should also be noted that the primary attack of babies can also hurt you. It's visually really nice though. Congrats!

Developer

Wow! What a great review! Thanks a ton! I'm glad you enjoyed it and really appreciate that you took the time to give us a such a great review. Thanks!

I really liked the sfx, I think it could have a song, by the way the graphics are beautiful, but I found the art kinda weird, I don't know if that was the goal

Developer

The game has adaptative music that grows as you defeat the waves!  Was the music too low?

Submitted (1 edit) (+1)

I felt her low

Developer

Got it, thanks for your feedback!

Developer

I happy to hear that! we haven't had the chance to mix things propperly, this is definitely on our to do list.

Developer
