Fun, wish I could have used a joystick. :)

It was difficult. The spawning time of the fire was too late. But I loved the idea of the time capsule. And the way you put in all the things together was really cool. 

It was fun to play!

Great Job! Love top shooter games. Yours its really fun to play, still i feel its to far from the jam theme "Time", but overall amazing job! Good Luck! BTW: You can check my game "Night Time".

Fun little shooter and the mechanic of creating time fields was really interesting, however I don't think it had a large enough impact on the world to be truly useful. It was also really difficult to change the time bombs whilst also piloting the ship. Overall great game which was really difficult!

Developer

Thank you! I agree with you on the impact, I had time to get all the pieces working and set up a core game loop, but not really to find ways to implement it better. I'd like to keep working on this, so if you have suggestions I'm all ears! Thanks for the feedback!

I think if you just increase the radius of the time fields a considerable amount. Also, for the weapon change what about using the scroll wheel instead?

Developer

Those are good suggestions, thanks! Scroll wheel makes much more sense.

As another little suggestion, maybe switch space bar to the bombs and make click shoot? Constantly tapping space bar whilst moving is a lot more difficult than clicking. Really excited to see any changes you make!
