Nice work! One of my favorite submissions so far. The artwork is great, I for one really liked the bold color choices. It's busy, but despite that I never had any trouble identifying threats, items, etc.

It did get very difficult pretty quick, but I'm no expert shmup player. Being able to continue helped me keep pushing forward. My best score was 125 on wave 10.

The only thing I didn't like was the music, it was a little too repetitive and simple for the amount of time I had to listen to it. But a minor complaint on an otherwise excellent game!

thanks, i got a deadline and the music didn’t make the cut, sorry about that, I ll work it in. Wave 10 is a lot 😃

Game has a Galaga feel and I like that. I think the music could use some work, it has a funky feel to it (that was nice) but I didn't like how anxiety inducing it was. I found it hard to play after a minute or two and felt like I could spam "X" for some of the game. Overall I think it could be really fun and that you have a very nice base for the game, keep it up and good job!

Im sorry about the music, I'll work a little more on it. Thanks for playing. You could also let the button pressed, the rate of fire is important in the aiming fire.

Great game. I just don't agree with the color selection and the background seems a bit busy to me.

Developer

thanks, i ve been discussing the background a lot and I m trying to make it better, any suggestions would be appreciated

I think if you slow down the parallax effect it would help a lot. My issue with the color is that usually colors with high levels of red are used for danger and green is used for health and life. You used it backwards. Not that it's wrong, it can work, but i guess I'm just color biased.
