Really nice to play, even a bit addicting. Nice take on the concept of "shoot'em ups without shooting"

It felt good to play :) Would be awesome to have some more variety in enemies and potentially the need for some more accuracy with deflecting the bullets.

Very fitting to the theme. I like that the shield uses energy so you have to balance how much you use it.

Great game!

I really liked it! The bullet deflecting is fun, and I can imagine harder levels with different enemy types, little Pong-like tables that could pop up on screen and ricochet bullets back at you, and etc. to up the ante.

Thanks BenChong! I really like your idea. Having some sort of enemy that can deflect bullets back at the player would be really cool!


I am planning on adding a few extra features after the game jam, I will add this to my todo list.

the concept is good but it sold get harder PS it looks nice

Developer

Great idea Ewaj. Maybe it would be cool if over time there were more/tougher enemies or maybe they start shooting faster.

The concept is fun and the aesthetics are nice.  Some suggestions would be to add some feedback on hitting and killing enemies (explosions and sound effects go a long way in SHMUPs), make the reflected shots faster than the enemy shots, and to have more enemy variety.

Developer

Thanks Durbo! I really wanted to add a few more enemy types/effect but sadly didnt have enough time. 

That's the nature of a game jam I guess :)

I like the glitchy damage effects and old school style, nice game!

Developer

Thanks Chrispyloco! The glitch effects was probably one of the favourite things I managed to add before the deadline. :)

Great game!

Developer

Great concept, and really nice retro look. Shield recharge adds an extra panic element to the game! haha. Fantastic job.

Although the idea is quite cool and it seems unique, it doesn't feel like it when you play. The mechanic is almost the same as you are shooting, it's only a bit more complicated because you have to deflect. But god job nevertheless :)
