Haha, I like the fact that we used the same basic premise (shoot-em-up without shooting), borrowed the same free music AND even have similar nicknames! :) Your approach is very different from mine though, and feels quite satisfying to break through walls of enemies. Would be nice if my ship was a little bit faster (or enemies slower) so that I could still dodge somewhat reliably and running out of shield energy is less of a guaranteed death. Anyway, would play more of this! (It feels a bit short even for the scope of this game jam.)

Oh man, that's crazy! I didn't have time on Sunday to work on this project so I didn't have time to flesh out the level and tune the movement. I should've left more time for that. Thanks for playing and leaving feedback!

It's good that it's fast and frantic, but maybe the enemies move a bit too fast, and I don't like that the energy bar depletes faster if you touch more enemies, when you are required to deflect at least 3-4 enemies after 20 seconds of game time.

When I was initially planning the game I wanted to discourage shielding everything in sight but I think the final gameplay would feel better if you could bump things more often than not now that you mention it. Anyways, thanks for playing and leaving feedback!

I like the concept of your game, but it has the same problem as the one i worked on, it's too fast. the player movement is good even if it could be tweaked, but the asteroids and ships are way too fast.

Thanks for playing my game and leaving feedback! I'll check out your game as well.
