- Hey there, Thanks for putting this together. there's a lot here for a single weekend! good job on getting it all in there. I will say, it really feels like what's here needed more time. While the game has a lot of elements going for it (action combat, upgrades, dodge roll, 3D environment and lighting etc) none of these elements were implemented in a way that felt polished enough to really enjoy. On the whole, I think the game really could have used some in-game story setup that explained what was happening, or had some overarching structure like a score system or timer, any kind of objective with measurable outcomes for the player to aim toward. Beyond this, I think action games really warrant time spent getting the feel just right. Seeing the character pivot off-centre or the damage not sync up with the visual feedback for the sword animation were quite jarring, as was the audio mixing. I think with a simpler vision, you might find it a lot easier to make something tighter. There's a lot of good stuff here, it just needed more time. Best of luck with future dev, Adam

Love the combination of pixel art and 2d, although it looked weird when the ghosts were coming at me from 90 degree, they looked like a thin line.
Fit the theme perfectly. Great art style
this was pretty cool. i liked the gameplay loop of this game and it fits the theme of the jam perfectly. my only criticism is that the rock texture is a bit noisy and a bit too disctracting and there is this bug where if you roll infront of the map then you get stuck. overall i liked this!
It doesn't load for my 😔
Very fun arcade-style wave game! I love the art and 2.5 d aesthetic.
