This is one of my favourites so far, I thought it would be better if you had to move to the shop square so when you think you have enough money, you have to work your way through and onslaught of bullets. Also, I get that not being safe in the shop is a part of the intended experience but, I think if it's safe, it would be like a pause button that the player has to work towards. You know how near the end of tense boss fights, players sometimes pause the game to collect themselves, well it would be like that but the player has to put effort into it. 

So yeah, I really like this one, great job

Thanks! I'm happy to hear you enjoyed it! :D 

My original idea was simular to yours, where you have had to go into a small window to be transported to the shop but I couldn't implement it in time because of the bugs it caused, but I'm definitely going to change the game based on your feedback after the jam is over. That mechanic shouldn't be too hard to program.

Sounds great, I look forwards to playing it :)

Developer

All done!

Nice! I actually meant the shop would act as a pause button rather than adding a new button to pause, since that could get in the way. Going into the shop like that looks great by the way!

Developer

Sorry but what exactly do you mean that? 

Submitted(+1)

I mean there shouldn't be a pause button you move to but the shop should feel like a break from the action(like a pause)

Developer

Ok, so I'll just remove the boss from the shop

And remove the pause button you showed in the gif becuase it will get in the way for when players want to dodge bullets and move into it (but keep the shop). I don't want you to feel like I'm controlling development of your game but I do see great potential in it :)

Developer

I'm just happy that people care enough about my games to help me improve them! :D

Great game! But with the rockets, the game gets too cluttered to see anything and it doesn't have a point afterwards because it's basically random chance if you get hit or not...

Thanks for your feedback!! After the jam ends I'm definitely going to try to fix that!

I really like the idea, however I think that while in the shop, you should be safe. However that is just my opinion. Great game!

Thanks for playing the game! I might make the bullets in the shop easier to dodge but not being safe in the shop is part of the gimmick.
