I like the idea, but the execution wasn't super great. It's unpolished (It is a game jam but still) and the gameplay consists mostly of running around in circles. I did have fun with it tho! (Some simple screenshake will work wonders.) Otherwise very nice!

Neat Idea, I liked having to just dodge. I would make the enemies and bullets more high contrast (make the bg more plain) and slow things way down. Could be a lot of fun if it was more like a bullet hell, and dodging let you do something to destroy enemies.

i think it's definetly interesting. I'd suggest having a slight low-detail background or lightening up and enlarging the stuff that matters. Always look at your game while squinting (Or take your glasses off, my personal methord of checking readability) to see if your game is clear or not.

I would make the background darker, so you can see the action better (bullets kind of blend in). Slowing down the bullets would also make the game a bit more tactical, but the idea has potential.

This isnt really working sorry.
In this genre you basically only have one method of interaction and it's your shooting, you took that away without compensating or giving any other tool. The simplest solution is to slow down enemy bullets so you can dodge them or give a shield you can trigger. You need something.

Oh my god the bullets are so fast x)

Neat idea, could do with more polish but I did enjoy my minutes with it. Needs a different background and more visible bullets though, it was sometimes hard to tell bullets from the background.

Neat.
