Ranked from 1 rating. Score is adjusted from raw score by the median number of ratings per game in the jam.

How does your submission match the theme?
Moving in this game is done by firing bullets out of the back, so you have to balance aiming your shots at enemies and dodging bullets at the same time.
There is also a burst mechanic, which encourages aggressive close quarters combat by firing multiple bullets like a shotgun, but also limits your mobility by disabling your ability to act for a short time.

Third-party resources
This was built using only JS and the HTML5 canvas, using no existing engines, tools or art.

Nice little game! I included it in my Game Maker Toolkit’s Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Dammit, been working on a similar thing for 25 hours now... and mine doesn't quite fit the theme as well  as yours seeing how you're only using two buttons while I'm here using four.

Thank you, but don't be discouraged! Just keep at it!

Gotta love the simplicity of the idea :)
