Well, I have to say this game got me originally, as I was confused why I wasn't shooting! After I worked out how the game worked though, I quickly worked my way through the levels. The puzzle elements are good and it took me a while to work out how to tackle each stage, although they did become a little cluttered after a while. I really liked the juice the game had though, the screenshake when the bullet hits a wall, and the persona 5 style shadow screen that appears when you die. With some more level design, maybe adding in extra shadows? (You can maybe get them to shoot each other?) I think that this game could become a really great puzzle game. Well done, I really enjoyed it!

Thanks for playing! We spend a lot of time making sure the game is  j u i c y. The game was heavily inspired by the visuals of Persona 5 (might have taken their color palette...)

Finding a way to kill your enemy is half the battle. The other half is to make sure that you survive their bullet! I love the concept if it given more polish later on!

Please cheek out my game! I would love your input and rating!

Really liking the graphics! I appreciate the persona 5 style silhouette upon death XD The idea is pretty fun and I also like how the bullet behaves. Minor nitpick here but a more top-down perspective will make aiming a lot more accurate :D Great game nonetheless!

Thanks for the comment! It was my focus to get the graphics good for the jam so I'm really happy you liked it.  We did plan to implement an aim assist system/bullet trail prediction, but time disagreed. Thanks for playing!

The idea of using the ricochet to defeat the enemy was good and the character well drawn. Good job.

Really like the idea of the game. For some reason everything was in slow Motion for me, dont really know if it is supposed to be like that. But still awesome game!

Maybe you want to try our game too.

It Looks like a platformer, but there is more to it.

I'd love to try this one.  Are you able to build a macOS version?  If so you can upload to an external site (google drive, media fire, etc) and just share the link here so we can play and rate during the rating period.

Hey, we definitely forgot about building the mac version, I just posted the link to the mac OS ver, enjoy!

Awesome!  I'll try it out.

EDIT - This is amazing!  Love the flow of this game.  Moving about the level, using the obstacles, and setting up the perfect shot to reflect back to the past shadow are all really cool!  The controls feel good and tight.  The animation is smooth.  Watching the bullet play afterward is so satisfying and I love the masking of the end result into the striking red and black colors.  The sound fx fit well.  This is a dynamite entry!  Well done!

Thanks for the feedback! The sound effects were added last seconds tho, glad you liked it! =D

Nice game! I really like your character's art and the red screen when the bullet hits. I think having another mechanic and playing around with that could have added a lot to the game, but I can totally understand the time crunch T T

Developer

Thanks!

I know right, we did not have enough time to implement other things and features that we wanted to do as well T T

I love your art style! I have lots of fun playing if.

I guess a auto restart when the bullet fly away will be cool. I didn't know I need to press R to restart because the UI is hidden!


I appreciate if you play and rate my game! Hope you will enjoy it!

Thanks for playing our game, the restart thing was a bug we realized but could not fix in time. We might work on this project some more and release a better version in the future.
