Got a Lua error as I tried to start the game, right after the (faster than light) intro text...too bad, I was very curious to play it. Gonna give it another try with Windows later.

Oh no! I’ll make sure to fix it today when I have access to my computer. I’ll notify you when I fix it. Really sorry about that. 

edit: I know I haven't updated it yet, the game is in development hell right now. I'm not sure what to do.

Great job! I like the music  and the little cutscene at the start. The powerups were quite fun too. The boss was very cool as well, I liked how it had a shield of lesser enemies. Very fun game!

Developer

Thank you for playing our game, and for the kind words!

"To be continued..." Short, sweet, fun, challenging. Very nice job! Boss seems to stay off screen for a while longer than I think it's meant to, and no power ups drop while in the boss fight(would have been nice XD). Congrats on submitting for the game jam!

Thank you for taking the time to play our game, and for the suggestions. :)

It's crazy fast on my computer, did you limit the framerate? Well done but I could use some autofire though.
The story was nice but I didn't see a tutorial, maybe it happened while I was trying the keys out.

I am terribly sorry for that other comment, please disregard it, it was left by the artist of the game. Thank you for playing our game!

I look forward to playing the continuation! :)

Since you've written this in lua: Could you make it work in the browser using something like lua.js? :)

Developer

Yes, but I never thought to. I will look into doing that today maybe. Thanks for playing! :)

Mood was very good with the story attached, but the tutorial was only really necessary the first time around.  Music was very good and gave a nice shift in mood between normal gameplay and boss fight. Also liked the butterfly things, which forced me to leave the bottom of the screen, where I had been hiding out for too long :) 

Developer

In the future, you will only have to play the tutorial once, and there will be more levels, but one step at a time. Thank you for playing our game!

But please make your intro skippable :-)

Developer

I made it so that once you play the tutorial, you never have to play it again. :)

Yeah, this makes sense.

Looks cool, grats on your progress!

This was a very good one! It really felt quite polished and ready for a jam game, and I liked the style, especially the music! The difficulty felt good, and the gameplay was smooth and compelling. One of the best submissions I've tried in this Jam :

Perhaps the only thing I felt was missing was some sort of particle or explosions effects, or some other response to enemies being destroyed to bring a bit of juice to the gameplay.

Developer

Thank you so much! We actually planned to have a particle system for explosions, but we ran out of time. I will probably work on that today. 

The music is not original and is from https://incompetech.com/. They have a lot of awesome royalty free music, check them out!

update: I got the explosion particles in. They don't look that good, but I can work on them. Thanks for the comment :)

What a nice game! I hope you will continue this game!I really like it :)

Developer (1 edit) (+1)

Thank you! We will definitely continue working on it, especially because it’s super buggy right now. We plan on adding more levels very soon.

edit: not so buggy anymore.
