Awesome entry! I really enjoyed playing it. The bullet hell mix is awesome, the visual feedback for damage on both player and boss is good, a very satisfying boss battle. It woul be a bit more satisfying if the tank keeps shooting when holding the mouse LMB, but awesome job you did, congrats :3

Nice graphics and gameplay! It would be more fun/challenging if you had to shoot the boss's hands first.

Very satisfying game! A nice set of varying attacks from the baddie. My only thought is, the player doesn't take too much damage from hits and, as another user mentioned, if you part in the extreme edge of the map, you rarely get hit at all, making it a cake walk. Perhaps limit movement to the limits of the baddy's hand attacks?

Anyway, VERY good!

I think that this "ease" is up to the player, I decided to stay in the middle of the screen on purpose just to feel the bullet hell urge tapping left right left right to avoid the bullets :P

Hey! Because I don't know where to begin with rating a game, I just want to tell you that I played your game.

BAM BAM

The art and focus of the game are good, but when I first heard the shoot sound you used, I fell in love.

There's no need for a mouse. I just put my cursor on the head, and used LMB as my shoot button (I'm on a laptop). Also staying in the bottom left corner makes it very easy. I didn't know there was a super shot.

I like the art a lot, and the gameplay is really good. However, I can't get the super fire to work properly, and I feel that it could benefit from some music.

You have to keep holding the lmb until it fires, if you release it before it wont work... Also after I started using it there's no reason not to only use it, it almost gave me RSI trying to defeat the bos without it (because I'm dumb and played the game without reading the comments below haha)

the game segfaults if you shoot too fast :/

Oh no :d What dist are you using? Has it happened more than once?

yes it happens every time I shoot faster than casual clicking, the webgl version crashes and the downloadable version crashes. Very annoying when you are nearly done and then click faster

Cool game.
