Neat game!  I liked the music and atmosphere.  Great sprite art as well.  To improve it add some Unity particle systems to make it feel more juicy and satisfying~  Good job!  Please try out my entry if you have free time. (or check out gameplay trailer) Good day!


Thanks for playing! Particle effects and juice are definitely on the to do list for us. Nice job with Only One Arrow as well!


Cute little game! I love the art and music, and the concept is cool. I had a few problems with getting back my spell and the enemies seemed to be going a lot faster than me, but otherwise I enjoyed it. Keep it up! :)


Thanks for the playing and the feedback! It'll be really valuable for improving the game. :D


You're very welcome! :D


Great job! Other than maybe some more polishing on the enemy movement and bullet retrieval, I have no critiques! This is a great twist on a commonly used idea!


Thank you for playing! Polishing up those with particle effects and more unique movement is definitely on our to do list. :)


It would be better to have the camera a little further away to see the enemies coming, but cool idea tho. Love the game design.


Thanks for playing! Pulling the camera back is definitely something we want to try out to balance enemy and player movement.


Thanks for taking a look at A Cat Named Shmup! We highly recommend you read the description before playing as it has a quick overview of the controls. Hope you have fun playing!
