Very neat idea.
 I would like the game to make me use my shield as a way to kill enemies more often.

 I felt that the best strategy was to only use the shield as a defense mechanism as you run forward.

 Although I only made it to 300 points lol.

I love the cheesiness of the intro cutscene. Fun blend of Only One and Genre Without Mechanic (sidescroller shooter without shooting)!

Thanks for playing :)

The shield mechanic was fun and the battery requirement forces the player to be more aggressive, nice.

Thanks for playing!

Really fun game! Love the music and the atmosphere. Also like the shield aspect of the game :D

Developer

Glad you enjoyed :)

I like it! The game is pretty dang fun really, and I played a few times. The difficulty curve was a bit interesting; before 500 was pretty easy, then the game's like 'damn your still alive? DIE'. It just channels maximal enemy spam, and feels pretty ridiculous. Really fun, I had a quick hack at your record but the sudden enemy spam was too strong.

I agree with your comments, really appreciate the feedback

Loved it! Espacially the musicic, so relaxing! Loved the intro, but even though it is here that you explain the coherece to the theme, I don't think it really reflected in the gameplay; Ok, 1 life I understand but you can just replay it afterwards (sure its still 1 life but it could have been further developped), for example: you have to reach the end with one battery using itself constantly, meaning you can't too much time waiting for the opportune moment + it creates stress for the player and gives him a goal with the game. Other than the relevance to the theme, this game is great! The sound effects fit perfectly the style, same for the 'blooming' models. Also, the difficulty curve is perfect and challenging! A very fun and amusing game! Great job!

Thank you, this was really helpful feedback. I’ll be sure to return the favor

I liked it, but not too adherent to the theme. Everything else was good though. Well done!

Cool idea! I'm really bad at the game but had fun anyway.

This is a really cool bullet hell! I think I'm in love with that intro by the way. Only problem is that it seems a little off the theme. Other then that good job!

Developer

Thank you, appreciate the kind comments

Neat idea, but not really fitting the theme, still the gameplay is fluid, some sound effect would be nice :)

Developer

Oh, sadly the sound effects seemed to be turned off by default for some people. You can enable them in the main menu.

This is a great game with great graphics. It's a pity it dies from time to time if you are in full playing, at least the browser version. But I like it.

Developer

Apologies for that, are you pressing Q accidentally by any chance. That sends you back to the main menu. Thanks for playing!

This is great! I'd love to see more rewards for deflecting the bullets back to the turrets, though.

Developer

Thanks for playing
