Really interesting idea! This is kinda the Ikaruga I've always wanted to play... It's hard to properly pull off reflections, but when you land a hit it feels SO GOOD.

Aww Thank you!

The polarity is fun to play around with. Takes a bit to get used to balancing it with the reflection.  A good twist on the arena shooter formula. Also I had some kind of glitch where sometimes the reflect wouldn't work even my stamina had charged back up, I think it usually happened after a polarity shift? Couldn't figure out exactly why though. Good job!

Developer

Thank you! Yes I couldn't iron that bug out.:( If you keep spamming the polarity switch or reflect ability the energy gauge locks up. If you use phase shifting it resets the gauge!

It doesn't work for me under linux, saying that there is no data folder.

I'll try rebuilding/reuploading it in the morning! Thank you for letting me know!
