This looked really good and I loved the day and night cycle.  I also appreciate that you seemed to focus on polish instead of length, which is good in game jams.

Very juicy, catchy soundtrack, beautiful time of day transitions... Very beautiful game overall !

Feels like a game on the game boy if the gameboy had the processing power of the SegaSuperScaler ^^ ! I love those games that go for a "fantasy gameboy" more thant an "authentic gameboy".

I just wish the planes were 2D... But I'm just nitpicking here.

Incredible graphical and game feel! Doesn't really look like something the gameboy could handle, but it's really impressive work. The game did slowdown the longer I was playing it, which is a bummer, but that's jam games for you. Very nicely done!

This just blew my mind. Excellent visuals, and very polished game. I had no trouble with slowdowns, by the way.

Very fun but it doesn't look like a game boy game :(, I would also recommend that you can press space/z to keep shooting. The music is good and the art is great. Pretty good!

I saw the gif of your game on Twitter and I was really impressed. It really gives you a sense of depth and the feeling of flying. I would love to now how you did it. The SFX is great as well. It's a pity that it has only one stage, but that means I really enjoyed it and want to play more.

Really nice entry! I think with a downgrade in a couple of things, it would be a game that would fit the GB, back in the day! It's not important, but I'm also having the issue where it slows down. It affects a bit the gameplay, but does not make it impossible to play.

PS: Feel free to try my game out! Cheers!

Nice gameplay, nice controls, but HTML5 have slowdown sometimes. It's a shame it was so short, the overall presentation is amazing =]

It's really great, though it ran very slowly on my computer. Might just be due to my own browser issues, a downloadable version might help in that regard.

Loved the aesthetics! Convincing sense of depth and really cool transitions between levels/times of day. Did find that the second area was the most difficult, because by the time I spotted enemy planes I couldn't lock on before they had already sped past. Otherwise great work!

I liked to flying around :D

Really cool illusion of depth and overall good game! The gameplay is fun, though I wished there was some signifier, if a plane (looking through the camera) is in front of the player or behind.

Awesome graphics and audio! I appreciate the sound effects. They add that little extra polish ;). It was a bit hard to see your targets since your own plane was blocking the view.

The graphics and the 3D effect are impressive. It is a well polished game in many aspects. It may be due to my connection but the game ran really slowly. The main problem I could see is the visibility, certainly due to the low rez. It was hard to spot and track the enemies. All in all, it is a spectacular game with a excellent BG music.
