How does your game fit the theme?
The game is a shooter/bullet hell where the enemies are weeds and, like weeds, the enemies multiply and grow out of control. The angle of the bullets you shoot is also out of your control.

Nice Idea, the Gui is a little messed up....

Nice game but the UI hides too many elements.

Pretty good, but the stun mechanic really annoys me. The best tactic seems to be straight-up running into the plants because this way you have much better chance to hit it

Submitted

Good concept and a decent game. Once you get stunned it's pretty much game over so maybe limiting the stun time might help. Other than that good job, well done.

once you get stunned near a dandelion, you're dead. good.

Really enjoyed the music speeding up the more you took damage, but like the others said, the stun mechanic is a bit much the way it's currently implemented

Submitted

The music was really good! The only thing I would change would be to lower the stun duration, especially at the beginning

Neat idea, but the stun mechanics made the game very unfair.

Developer

That really wasn't my intention. I made the weeds stun you instead of damaging you because I wanted the game to really feel like you were losing control of your garden, but I'm sorry if it made you dislike the game.

Submitted

I wouldn't say dislike, but it was a bit annyoing. The plants that stun you (in my opinion) should shoot slighty less freqently and it would be just fine. And due to the nature of games that go on infinitely, the sense of losing control would come naturally after a while. But overall I did have fun, so I wouldn't use the term "dislike".

Developer

Alright. Thanks for your feedback!
