A fun and well made game. Graphics are really neat and the music is simple but non-intrusive. Controls are good also. Sometimes when turning around you could shoot in the opposite direction from where you fired, but it was a great game nonetheless

Thank you so much! The input lag is something we noticed after upload. Glad you enjoyed it!

Nice job! Everything's great, but enemies can spawn on top of you.

Thanks! In hindsight we should have had a "spawn in" animation before the enemies to inform players of the incoming threat.

Very original game that fits with the theme and the controls and graphics are nice too!

Cool! The graphics are simple but on point, I like them.

The game itself is fun and enjoyed doing several runs.

Developer

Thank you playing, we appreciate it!

didn't find any issues, graphics were interesting, i didn't feel like the theme was really on point, but overall good game :)

Thanks so much for playing! We are glad you enjoyed it.

As far as the theme is concerned: Every stat upgrade you get will say it increased your stat, even if it didn't, effectively lying to you.

For example:  Your starting hp is 3. If you have taken 1 hit, then get an hp up placebo, the game lies to you and tells you that your current health is 3. When in reality your health is 2. If you would have gotten an actual hp up in this scenario, your health would be accurate. Hopefully this clears up any confusion. :) - Glasses

Ah, i saw the rules about getting fake powerups but it wasn't really represented until the end scene, but even then i wouldn't have known cause it doesn't show me the health at the end xD i only noticed stat changes for the most part xD

Thanks! We have gotten ourselves in over our heads before with other game jams. We tried to make something that we could spend more time polishing this go around. Glad you enjoyed it!
