Well made game! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the GBJam 5 games, if you'd like to take a look :)


Why just yes?

just yes


I love all the different weapons you can get. Solid platforming and lots of game to explore. Love it.


Definitely nails the gameboy feel, with compelling platforming and combat. Graphics are great; I especially liked the explosion and blood effects--you used the limited palette in very creative ways. Exploration felt a bit tedious, as I never felt like I was unlocking great upgrades, and the splash damage on the explosives was a bit unforgiving, but overall I was really impressed.
