"I've got blisters on my fingers!" say Ringo when he played. Seriously , this controls game my hands a jam!

I would only improve the layout and fonts somewhat...but cool game!

This was hardcore, I was expecting to use the mouse to aim, but I guess the keyboard controls did add an interesting challenge to the game.  Ultimately I found that I was defeated by the controls before the difficulty of the game,  I like the mood of the it though, for some reason it really made me smile (and the shotgun sound made me laugh).

Thanks for your kind words! I've just released version 0.4.0 which allows for twin stick controls, as well as adds multiple achievements and a purchasable 'grimoire' if you are interested :)

I had fun but I think I would enjoy it even more if you could aim and shoot with the mouse.

Developer

As of yet, you still cannot shoot with the mouse. However, as of version 0.4.0, you can shoot using your ijkl keys! :D

Jam Judge

Hehe the game is very bare, but it was quite entertaining to play. There didn't seem to be a way to die, is there? I never lost my 1 HP. 

Developer

Thank you. I apologize for your inability to die, the new update appears to have a few issues. It will be fixed in the next patch.

(Edited 1 time)

The  web-gun? wielding spider didn't die when it was stopped while I read the description nor when touching green flies. Pressing Z fast enough made for a good machine-gun though.
PS: Cursor-key support (the keys with an arrow) would be nice.

Developer

Yeah, I posted an update to the game a little bit ago, and I believe there have been some issues. Sorry about that. It will be fixed in the next patch, which I'll get out as soon as possible. :)

Sound volume rises constantly, until it is unbearable, must be a bug. Also why does spider shoot with the firearm sound?

Developer

I've seen that bug before, but it doesn't seem to always do it. I'll do a bit more testing, see if I can fix it. Thanks for letting me know its not just me.

A few suggestions. When we're hit it really looks like the game goes on as if nothing happened. There should be some indications, like removing the enemies and putting the player back to the center of the screen.

It is quite hard to aim too, the game would probably be more pleasant to play with twin stick controls.

Developer(+1)

Out of popular demand, the new update has added twin stick controls! Thank you for your feedback :)
