YeahH!! 38on the first try! THat was fun. Maybe the bomb is too powerful? But actually the screen size getsmaller and smaller. So there is that :) fun and the graphics is really good too :) 

I like also that there is no explanation for how to use the bomb on the screen : )

Beautiful, fun little game. Both the slow down and bomb ability were fun and useful to use. I liked the wave-like movement of the clouds. I got to 72 :)

My only two constructive comments I would add are, I wish there were some mention of what the controls were in the game itself, and I wish that the bombs were a different color than the ninja stars (I'm not sure if that was intentional).

Extremely polished, and gameplay is tight and immediately fun. Really great job here :)

52 ;)  loved the animation and the old game cartridge theme! Song was perfect in my opinion for this and the clouds getting in the way were perfectly annoying!   


Presented very well. Simple, but plays to its strengths. All the mechanics work in tandem, only real downside I can think of is the music lasts 4 seconds per loop which can get a bit grating.


Love this! Fan of the genre in general, and absolutely love the art!


Good gameplay and nice graphics, congrats!


The beginning boot sequence made me feel nostalgic.  Good luck in the jam, the pixel art is really good.


The pixel art is very good, and you can't beat the gameplay. Nice!

I like it very very much, nice artwork and very simple but really fun.

Nice Guy o/


Thanks, pixels are my forte! Why is everyone stressing that it's "simple" though? xD

Very very well designed, love the artwork! The shrinking clouds was very subtle so when i noticed it was a lovely surprise. Thanks !


Thanks, art is definitely my favorite aspect of gamdev!

And he subtle shrinking wasn't really intended, but I'm glad that you played far enough and noticed it!

Fun: This game is fun, it might only be so for a couple minutes, but it is still fun.

Visuals: You nailed the NES astetic

Music: A bit to repetitive, even for NES standers

Sound: The sound effects are good, wouldn't change them.

Story: n/a

Theme: I think the idea is that you only have a small slow-mo timer, but that isn't much of a problem as you can still play it just fine without it.


Thanks for the thorough feedback! Yeah unfortunately I only had like 10 mins for the music ^^''

The theme btw was meant to be implemented through the wall of clouds that is slowly getting closer (scarce space)

(Edited 1 time)

Sorry, I didn't notice at first


No worries! I think it is shrinking very slowly in this version too, I would have increased it now


Simple but very well done.


Thanks, I always strive for minimalism!
And btw I reworked the game page to also explain the theme, because I think it may have been unclear

Cool! I didn't feel like it needed an explanation, at least for me. I originally rated it 5 stars on theme.


Oh wow, alright thank you :D


Simple and fun. Great job!


Simple but addicting and fun - Love the slow down mechanic and its a nice unique idea good job


Really fun game. Can't say anything bad.
