Wow, I really love the concept.  Enjoyable to play and very challenging!

Thanks! I have continued working on it since but it's too far along to update it before the gamejam has finished.

I now have green lighting that emits when an enemy is near as well as a beeper depending on how close they are.

Fixed the issue with falling through the platforms on level 3 (I will remember to set background objects to obstacles next time haha)

Zoomed the screen out by two resolutions from 112x63 to 144x81 making the character a little smaller.

Well done!

It looked and felt quite good as far as gameplay mechanics are concerned, but it wasn't particularly fun to play, the screen is way too zoomed in to make a judgements about what I should be doing, enemies just kind of popped up in front of you most of the time, or that's what it felt like.

Developer

Hi SZ thanks for the feedback, I will certainly be adding a sound when enemies are closer and will be zooming out the action a tiny bit.

Lot of fun and challenging...wore out my space key lol.  Like others have said it's a bit too zoomed in....other then that very immersive and fun.

Developer

Cheers! Them aliens take some killing without the Shotgun. When the game jam has finished I think I will alter the window resolution a small amount to

As it was said here before, the view was way too close up, but besides that, it was a really nice experience. All the particles and sounds immersed you into the atmospheric feel. Loved the references. Cute ✓ Fun ✓ Blood ✓

The atmosphere was nice, but the view was a little too zoomed in for my taste :) I think it could easily be ported to mobile also :D

Developer

Thanks Harri.

Yeah it is very close up, I think it would use a slightly larger resolution if I was to do a project like this again. Its in 112 x 63 which made using the mandatory splash screen pretty darn tough.

Thanks Aenever really glad you liked it! I feel it has an odd mix of comedy and horror :D
