Pretty fun! At first it felt kind of too easy but then suddenly there's chaos with all the Milo's. Simple but engaging game. I agree with others about the balloon and the plane, the balloons are a bit too punishing to shoot. Maybe the plane could slow down when you shoot the Milo's? Good job!

Adorable twist on Missile Command / Space Invaders, love the graphics and animation. Impressive that you managed to get an upgrade system implemented within 48 hours too, it's a clever way to keep the player engaged!

I. Need. To. Hit. That. Plane!! Lol! Very enganging gameplay, every upgrade you get, the game gets more interesting! Music is good, and the 1bit graphics are very cute. Great game! Too bad, couldn't stop Milo from getting away :(

Amazing! The upgrades to add replayability were great! My hishcore was 262! The graphics wer amazing too, I love this draw style. Congratulations!

Thanks for playing! Great highscore!

Very fun! My only complaint is how you need to play sub-optimally to get more money in the beginning. I think it would be better if you got money at the end of the run proportionally to how many milos you got.

Developer

Thanks for playing! Yeah, could definitely revisit that mechanic once the jam is over :)

Great game! Cute presentation, addicting gameplay and fits the theme of the jam pretty well.

Developer

Thank you for playing!

I didn't expect the game to go out of control SO FAST. Without a joke it was like "seems pretty nice and relaxing... wait... WAIT MILO, WHERE ARE YOU GOING, COME BACK. NO NO NO" (as you can see, I was losing a lot XD)
The game is so well polished and executed, you even made the shop. In a game for a jam! That's some high level category of the jam games. The art style and funny music fit the gameplay very nicely and do their work to set the right tone. Although, if you think so, it's story is kind of sad: MILO just wanted a balloon, poor Milo... but great game! Best of luck

Haha! Thanks for playing and I'm really glad you had fun :)

Fantastic, really! I like the concept, art, music and MILO!

It gave me a really good feeling when I thought "if the dart could pierce ballons it would be perfect, that's a shame!" and then here it is in the upgrade menu!

Wonderful work! Probably my favourite so far (I hope you won't mind if I follow you XD).

Developer(+1)

Thanks for playing! I'm really glad you had fun! :D (Totally don't mind if you follow, will definitely be doing more jams in the future!)

I'll definitely check out your game :)

I really like how the game plays out and overall artsyle. I wish the sounds didnt stack as with 250 milos it got really really hard to listen to.I like how powerfull complete upgrades are.

Developer

Thanks for playing! That  audio beep is my biggest regret, haha.

Submitted

really fun! Simple but effective art. It's pretty satisfying when you get all the upgrades and can basically start spamming the whole screen

Developer

Thanks for playing! :)

Really cool game and quite addictive! Maybe I am not very convinced with the cash system, earning money is not directly related to lasting a long time. Anyway, great game!

Developer

Thanks for playing! :)

This is honestly my favorite game of the jam that I have seen so far! The audio design and composition is stellar and the even the music alone was enough to keep me wanting more!  Really like the idea that Milo duplicates when you shoot him down instead of just  having random increased waves. that exponential growth can certainly get overwhelming really fast but luckily the power ups are there. Seriously though, great game! 

Developer

Thanks so much for playing! Really glad you enjoyed it :) 

No problem lol always happy to play through game jam games. If you dont mind me asking, where did you get the music for the game/whats the name of the song you used? 

Developer

I got the music from OpenGameArt.org! https://opengameart.org/content/bossa-nova << Here's a link to that specific track. :)

Awesome, thanks!
