Very 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 :)

Nice game! Balancing my attention between the different attack types was a bit unintuitive at first but I could see the strategy behind each. The missle mechanic in particular is very cool.

Cool game! good job =D

@ RnK

Cool! Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad that you liked the 'boss'; next time I hope I can put a proper one in.

Good looking game, I really miss some sound, but the graphics are good enought to hook you up, controls feels a bit too sensitive and you maybe want to make the laser hitbox a bitt wider and the special weapon a bit less powerful, maybe increasing the cooldown time, boss fight was very cool. Nice work!

@Jerom

Awesome!


@mr

Thanks. Missiles do need some balancing,they're quite fun to use so I think that I'll tune them to being more of a regular attack than the smart bomb that they are now.

Fast & with few patterns fairly challenging, which is more than enough to me to make this game enjoyable! (my xbox gamepad is working)

A fairly decent scrolling shooter. The Missle attack was clearly overpowered though.

Okay, I've updated the game to support gamepads. I think. I don't actually own a gamepad so I have no way of testing, so any feedback would be highly welcome. Please check https://kieron-overton.itch.io/gb5 for the latest version.

@katana beetle

Sure thing, I'll get to work. I'm glad that you enjoyed the game.

Can you add controller support please? And the directional keys be for the analog and d-pad? Thanks. BTW really fun game!
