Cool and awesome game! I played the web version and had trouble... the movement keys weren't working for the first few rounds. I think it was working eventually and was epic fun.

One of my favourite games in GGO so far! Gameplay is top-notch, I could barely score in Hard mode. The web version is indeed somehow unresponsive, but the desktop version works perfect. Great job!

Very nice style. The turbo shot is cool.

unfortunately it's qwerty not azerty

Developer

Yeah... rebinding controls is on my roadmap for future versions, but at least you can use a controller in the meantime? :D

Good graphics ! Is there a way to remap buttons for non qwerty keyboards ?

Developer (1 edit)

Thanks! :)

Not currently unfortunately. It's on my list of stuff I'd like to do if I revisit the game after the jam! You can use a controller instead though if that's a possibility!

Yeah, that's what I did, it works well with a controller ;)

I really liked the graphics. Tried out the web version but was unable to get it to work properly  so i downloaded the desktop version and finally got to play it :) was pretty entertaining and i like the mechanic where you get faster when your circle is full. Once i learned to use that i was able to beat the ai(otherwise its pretty hard haha). 

Developer

Yeah, hard mode is relatively brutal until you get fully powered up! Thanks for checking it out!

Great job! I liked the graphic and colors. It´s  fun to play.
One question: Isn´t there sound ?

Developer(+1)

Sorry, I didn't have time to do sound well, so I thought it better to leave out... :\

Superb effort! Pleasing to the eyes and a good interpretation of the theme.
