Cool game and art design!  I like how the colors invert if you go into the squares.  Fun energetic gameplay too!  Good job making this in only 48hours!  Please check out my entry if you have time~ good day!

Feels so good to play! Really like the pace this game has and I felt really challenged by it. Could be more adherent to the theme but other than that awesome job!

Not sure how it fits the theme design-wise, but the shooting itself feels really rewarding.
I also made a twin-stick shooter. Check it out! https://cerosware.itch.io/one-stick-shooter

I like the simplicity of the graphics and the dynamism of the game. It was nice to play it. :)

I also made a little video compilation of games from the game jam and you're in it : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLyp4qxT7Uc

I don't tend to play wave shooters but still found this very fun, especially once I picked up on the fact the player could transition to the negative space during and enemies death. Along with that the audio, visuals just felt crisp and polished and had a good feel to it, good time overall!

If you have time, would love to hear what you think of my game; https://itch.io/jam/gmtk-2019/rate/461074

Hey there, here's the video of me playing your game at around 6:30

This is such a mechanically cool game! I love the way the skull makes keeps you on the move, while at the same time helping you out of sticky situations! The music is really fitting too. The topic is a bit of a stretch, especially since you can change the pallet (which I otherwise love!).

Okay this is definitely one of the best feeling games I've played so far. Perfect amount of screen-shake, and everything feels responsive and smooth. The theme seems a little far fetched, as one color is purely aesthetic, but it's fun nonetheless.

Developer

Color or lack of it plays a big role in the gameplay, as you can move between filled areas and destroy specific enemies only on white or on black. But I agree that the theme isn't fully explored here. 

Anyway, I'm glad you enjoyed the game, thanks for playing!

Nice game, I'm not very good at it though. The game play is fast and fun and the music is a good fit. I like the palette feature. It would be nice if there was a way to pause or exit during the game though.

Developer

You can pause and unpause with ESC or Start button on controller. But I forgot to add an exit button, so it's alt+f4 for now, sorry :)

This game is legitimately extremely engaging, weaving in and out of little alleys I created by killing enemies was an absolute good time. My only real gripe is that the mechanics aren't really based around the jam's theme.

Developer(+1)

Thank you! Unfortunately the game is not particularly designed around the theme, more so inspired by it, but I'm really glad you liked it! It looked more fitting on paper :)

No worries, fitting or not the game is in my top 3 favorite in this jam that I've played so far.

This is a quite nice game with very peculiar design and exellent realisation!

Thanks!
