I think the game is really fun, although I did feel like the hit box for the Heart ship was a bit big, but it wasn't too bad. Great job!

Thanks for playing! I meant to go back and change the hitbox to be smaller, just didn't make the final cut.

Very cool how you chose hearts as the aesthetics! The radar having a limited time on screen really forces the player to move, however, combined with shooting consuming health and mines requiring to be shot 3 times to get rid of them, the optimal strategy is to dash 100% of the time.

Thank you!   Ideally it would be more balanced on that aspect.  I had some ideas to increase the difficulty but time ran out.  Making the asteroids aggro from further away and gradually getting faster over time were a couple of ideas I had.   Just didn't have time.   Thanks for playing and leaving feedback!

I like it man, it is a bit easy though, I found it really fun to navigate through the asteroids without actually shooting rather than blasting my way through, the theme made me laugh... you're a heart collecting jam, love it. The ship feels really good to control, great job :)

Thank you, yes I wish I had more time to play test and balance it.  I added the heart-bomb in the last hour and I think it made it a bit easier.   Honestly I'm just glad I finished! :)  Thanks for playing!

Oh, the asteroids also have a 20% chance to drop jam, to make them worth shooting.  I didn't have enough time to get it all in the explanation though.
