Developer

Thanks!

This was very fun to play! Well done

The art was good and the game made me feel good inside lol.  Great job.  Whenever the whole screen cleared I got excited, but was never really sure if that was an immediate bell effect or a delayed affect of the reverse controls bell.  Very engaging

Developer(+1)

Thank you very much ^^
It was an immediate effect, one of the bells has a chance of doing that.

This was a very charming arcade style game. Kind of made me want to sit back with a beer and some coins and play. 

Submitted(+1)

as long as it's not one of those 4 coins to start and 2 to continue kind of arcade games...

Developer(+1)

Thank you!
Oh, I wouldn't put such exploitative monetisation in my games lol

Submitted(+2)

Really good pixel art!

Developer

Thank you!

The music and graphics are great! I liked the randomness on what effect the bells were going to have. I think with a bit more time you could have put even crazier effects in there :)

Developer(+1)

Yeah, I tried, but there were some effects I was unable to implement and just left out...
Glad you liked it though ^^

Submitted(+2)

Visuals, music and presentation are all super cute!! I love the Twinbee bells too! I wish you would've gone even beyond with the theme to make it feel more out of control. Like have some bullets that come back to hurt you, or change the controls to the flappy bird ones. Either way, it looks super cute and is really fun to play!

Developer

Thank you very much ^^

Submitted(+2)

Cool game! I love how the controls get out of control! Good job!

Developer

Thank you very much ^^

Submitted(+2)

Love the aesthetics of the game!!! Awesome!  but I just don't see clearly the Out of control theme

Developer(+2)

Thanks!
Maybe try playing it a little longer, collect a few more bells...

Submitted(+2)

Great game. I really enjoyed the art and music and the gameplay was really polished. Good job.

Developer

Thank you very much!

Submitted(+1)

I guess I had this coming...


Developer(+2)

Yeah, the extra health was intentional, the effect the bells will have is always random, but the colour has an influence on what you'll get.
One affects your shots, another your health, and the 3rd one may either give you max power, fix the controls, or take it away and reverse them. Sometimes though bells just give you points, but more points than any other item.

Don't worry, there's no bad blood between us ^^

Beautiful, polished TwinBee-like! Loved the graphics and gamefeel

Developer

Glad you did~ ^^

Submitted(+1)

Really love the graphics! I think that you must add a way to understand what "powerup" I activate: too often i don't understand if i catch a bonus or a malus. I hope you continue it after the jam!

Developer(+1)

Thank you very much!
Sorry, I have other plans...

Submitted(+2)

This is super cute! I love the whole vibe this game has. It feels nice and it's a fun take on the SHMUP genre. Great work!

Developer(+1)

Thank you very much for your kind comment~

Submitted

Of course! We'd love your feedback on our game as well. SpaceBus

Submitted(+2)

This game looks great and it's enjoyable to try out for a while. well done

Developer

Thank you very much!

I loved this game so much ! The art, the ennemies, all was great and cuuute ! The only thing missing is a game over screen with our score and a retry button, because the game is restarting automatically :(

Developer(+1)

Thank you very much ^^
Yeah, it's cuz there's no lives, you just keep trying over and over and see what score you can get in 3 minutes...

Submitted(+1)

The ennemies and the style remind me Touhou, too.

Submitted

Only complaint is that it sometimes felt the upgrade bells gave me the same ability I currently had making it a bit unclear if there was a connection to the other collectables or not.  There's a difference between lack of control and lack of clarity.

I think you're giving  Construct 2 far too little credit, you'd be surprised with what you can do with it...
A Game Engine is only as good as the developer using it, and C2 does most of what I need it to do, in a manner that I can wrap my head around as a non-coder...

Submitted

Sorry... I don't exactly know why, but I seem to have a Bias against Pre-Built game engines... (Especially Unity)

Submitted(+2)

The aesthetics, the music, the animation, everything is too beautiful! nice job!

Developer(+1)

Glad you think so~ ^^

Submitted(+2)

Wow this game is so cute, the aesthetics are great, congrats!

Developer

Thank you very much ^^
