I have to say I enjoyed the visuals very much! The way the things glow, and how they explode is really nice to see. Other than that: the game fits well the theme, the sound effects are good, as is the music.

I can see your game being good played on mobile! The only problem I had was when I hit the wall, sometimes I would get stuck there a little bit before being able to move.

That's a fun little game you got there! Great job with it! One thing though... there is WAY too much bloom, WAY too much... I understand you wanted to look cool but there are other ways to do. The bloom was really misleading; for example: the red square that comes down, most of the time I wouldn't touch it even thugh my bullet when straight past it, then I noticed it was just the bloom making it look like a sphere... Apart from this small details, great job with your game!

Would love if you could check mine out too! Or not, no pressure ;)

Nice and fun idea) I stuck in walls several times, but it's 48 hours jam after all) Good luck!

Developer

Sorry about that I will try to fix this in the future.

This was really great, you could get under an enemy and then spam the space button for a better chance but the fact that some enemies fall faster is a really great counter to this. Great job!

I definitely didn't realize what I was supposed to do the first time. This game has a good pacing to it. After a little practice, I made it solidly into the top 10! The leaderboard is a nice touch.

I did run into a weird bug -- it looks like if you turn directions too quickly next to the wall, you can get stuck for a bit. Definitely lost some lives due to that. Overall, nice entry into the jam :)

thanks for the feedback I will try to fix this in the future.

Damn, this game is hard. Also really enjoyable. The leaderboard made me go full competitive mode and play lots of times. (Still not good at it though)

Great game!
