Ranked from 11 ratings. Score is adjusted from raw score by the median number of ratings per game in the jam.

How does your submission match the theme?
Ammo is tied to the amount of score multiplier you have,
the fire button has 2 ways of shooting: press for a weak but instant arrow, hold for a piercing shot
on hitting an enemy the player is turned into a ghost that floats to the top of the screen, you have a limited time to shoot some targets to revive yourself before you die.
it also gives the player a moment to rest before the oncoming horde.
enemies spawn ghosts on their death that float to the top of the screen, if the player collects them they get more ammo but being closer to the top of the screen means if you get hit you have less time to shoot the targets.

Third-party resources
Unity, Bfxr and LMMS for the music. & Paint.net

This has to be one of my favorites this jam has to offer! Everything's done right. It can be so much fun getting combos.  It reminds me a lot of Spacebomb and Superflail. The termination condition's minigame is also really neat as I have a chance to redeem myself if I mess up. The music is awesome, too! You and I both have a calmer version of the main song used for the title screen. Awesome game!

Art is fantastic! Clever use of light, the music getting more and more intense, lots of feedbacks... The title doesn't disappoint!

And I really like the death mechanic. It allows the game to be quite punitive, but still giving a chance to come back. And it allows for some cool strategies, combined with ghost floating toward the top! Really excellent design!

The sprites are great, a good and consistent style!

the death mechanic is pretty good, being on the bottom of the screen makes it easier to get back to life, but being on the top of the screen makes it easier to get ghosts. Not sure if that was intentional design, but it is well designed nonetheless!

The feel of the bow is really nice, and shooting it is quite satisfying, though it could maybe do with being a bit less floaty.


great game!

Really fun and good looking game. Everything is tied together and the game flows nicely. You can see that the dev though about how everything would work together to make this great project.

That art style is awesome, but also doesn't look too hard to do. I wish I had come up with it.
