How does your submission match the theme?
Holding reload key attracts bullets which can be used for precise shooting but if reloading is interrupted it will result in bullets being fired in all directions.
Shards need to be protected as they are your health but they also give you ammunition.
Reloading boosts enemy speed but considering the way they move it can also help you avoid them.

I like the idea of the game and it is really fun. The graphic and atmosphere is good and the controls works fine. I just think the movement could be a little bit faster. It feels really slow. But maybe this is intended.

My personal highscore is 79.

Golem Shards has a really cool idea in its core mechanic that it's been built around nicely.

Once you get your head around aiming and how the reload works, the game becomes quite fun as you attempt to avoid the enemies, protect the shards and keep your bullet supply stocked. I think the game stuck to the theme fairly well, the shards being (to me) the core mechanic tying it all together. I enjoyed the visuals, the lighting and glowing colours, plus the minimalist style models all looked quite good together.

The game worked well and I encountered no problems. It was fairly challenging (I think my highest was 80-90 points), the game-play was smooth and the shooting / reloading mechanic was interesting and took a bit to master.

Overall, the game was fun and the content that was there was polished and put together well. 
Definitely my most replayed game out of those I've tried so far. A great entry, well done! Rated.

If you have a moment, could you please rate mine? Thanks!
