Well made game! The bosses fight patterns are hard at first, but not unfair. If you played perfectly you could dodge every attack. What made the fight a bit hard for me was the unusal controls (most players - me included - are used to WASD controls) which took some time to get used to. Other than that well done!

Crazy hard, but fun nonetheless. Not entirely sure if Mark will be able to beat it, or how he'll catch on to the "Only One" boss idea, but this is still good stuff. Patters are nicely done.

The art and boss design made this feel like a sweet Undertale/Downfall mix. The boss fight is incredibly difficult, but also a ton of fun as I slowly began to master use of the movement along with the fact that shooting also allows you to float in midair.  And, of course, the art is great as always. I've seen very few games that used only two colors while still making sure everything looks good and visually clear. Congrats on the game, and I can't wait to see what else you create in the future!

Ou my boss still live =)

Nice hardcore game. I love how visual style (one color) fits the theme) Couldn't beat the boss.  What frustrates me the most is that player can't move and shoot at the same time. Good luck!

Cool boss fight. But would nice if the controls were more responsive after shooting.

Its challenging and hard. I did not initially understand that you could shoot up which made it impossible to damage the boss, I think it could use some movement tweaking aswell as some telegraphing on the boss what the comming move will be :)

I wish i could move sooner after shooting since it requires precise jumping and movement. I don't know if that was your intent or not but I enjoyed it regardless. I also like how the main menu allows the player to test out their moves before going into the boss fight.

Love the music, bos is hard AF
