Well done! Really enjoyed playing this!

This is so well done! Great job.

I think my only suggestion would be to add a respawn delay and/or an invincibility period after death. There were a few times I died and respawned so fast a second shot killed me again.


Other than that, the mechanics are great, the graphics look awesome, sounds are spot on. And most of all, it's fun :D

Developer

Thanks! Good suggestion. Will definitely look into adding that after the competition closes.

Just implemented your suggestion @tincman - check it out here. Will update on itch.io after the competition.

Galaxy was/is one of my favourites. I had tons of fun playing Galaxeroids. Good job!

Developer

Thanks! I was aiming for late 70s, early 80s arcade nostalgia with some extra tricks thrown in for fun.
