Awesome game. It felt really good when things got crazy with a lot of enemies and powerful attacks. You did great and keep up the good work

I think i did not get fully how the upgrades work. The art with the music makes me tense lol, and think a big thing is coming up. The slow paced type of the shots contribute to this tenseness of the vibe. This is terrifying, great work

Developer

The upgrades strengthen the respective projectiles in either their size, speed, damage or number of projectiles. Glad you like the tense atmosphere. Thank you for playing and giving us feedback.

Awesome graphics but I think there's a room for improvement regarding the music and sound. 

The gameplay is very engaging. Didn't know you can win this game until I did it. I think difficulty was just right, not too easy, not too hard. And yeah, I liked that you have to pick up the coins, it really requires you to go try to clear the stage and go into the crowd.

Also, I liked having two weapons at the same time even though I didn't get it until the third attempt or so.

Great job!

Developer

Maybe some sort of Tutorial would be nice? I've added mouse prompts to the UI though. Maybe you don't see them that well because they blend with the UI. Thank you for your feedback and playing our game. I'm glad you liked it.

Submitted

I think you can make some pop up prompts. Like, when your left weapon runs out, a hint appears saying that the right weapon is also a thing. Having some movement instead of static elements should bring attention to it.

The soundtrack/sound effects are a bit lacking, but damn, I love this game's spritework. The animations are juicy, the lighting is effective, the sprites are well-made. In terms of gameplay, I do like the concept, but some powers do end up vastly more powerful than others at times, and without a way to predict or control what I'm going to get, I'm mostly incentivized to just keep shooting regardless of what weapon I have. So yeah, it might need a couple more passes in terms of design... but I still a lot of fun with this game.

Here's my level when I died:

Thank you, I learned a lot about pixel art animation in this jam, glad you like it. You're right about the music. This is only the second time I've made music for video games, but i learned a lot through feedback. Unfortunately, we've had a very difficult time balancing this game, which is why some weapons are stronger than others. Thank you for your feedback and playing our game.

A nice take on the genre. The circling weapon is my favorite.

This is one of my favourite games that I've played so far in the jam. The mechanics are beautifully simple, but play really nicely into the game, forcing you to adapt to the weapons given. Also, the fact that you have to pick up gold to progress is also a lovely way to encourage players to get into harms way.

My only feedback is likely something you've already thought about and couldn't do because of time, but I think the game would be great with some more enemy variety. But I could genuinely see this becoming a bigger, fuller, game.

In summary: I loved it. Great work. (I even forgot to mention to cute little character and animation)

Developer

Thank you for your feedback. There are actually 6 different enemies. However, they only differ in a few parameters. Due to time constraints, I didn't manage to give each enemie a face of their own. The idea was to add a range enemy, but we didn't have the time for that either. Thank you for playing though.

Submitted

Of course there were other enemies; I'm a fool! There were those nasty dice that came running at me! Also, you're not the only jam entry to to have the scope for a ranged enemy.

Nice rogue like shooter!

Beautifully executed. Good luck with the jam!

(If this game gets a procedurally generated dungeon system It'll get me glued to it for at least two months)

Had a lot of fun playing this game! The visual conveyance for the power-ups and shot types was intuitive, and the art is highly polished.
