Challenging game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Low Rez Jam games, if you would like to take a look :)

Hi Adam

Thanks for the comments I will look to reduce the difficulty in the next update after the contest.

Or have an "easy","hard" option menu.

Thanks for the feedback!

The game is fun, but extremely difficult! It's hard to dodge bullets. Maybe the character controls could be faster or there should be some kind of a short time shield activated by a button to deflect some of the bullets. Or maybe a health bar with 3 hit points. I didn't feel 3 lives enough. It's very easy to die. I had to defeat some enemies in a cheap way.

I like the sound effects and the music, also the glow effect and parallax scrolling is nice too!

Thanks Sparrowspell! Glad you enjoyed it - Its was fun playtesting it :) I wanted to give the feeling of being at the arcades

Was very fun to play, awesome game!

It's a little too difficult for me, maybe if the enemies were a little slower. It's well-made though, I just can't even get past the first level. :-P

After 1000 points you get a Bonus Extra Life

I would be curious to know if anyone gets to Level 4 or more... maybe some arcade defender fans? :)

Developer

Thanks CheBO

I will be tweaking the controls after the jam - I think the lift is faster than it was before, takes a little getting used to - but so did the arcade titles of the 1980s :)

Once you get the hang of it the 1st level becomes quite easy...

Exciting, bombastic action. You nailed the real retro arcade feel.

I feel the controls could have been more responsive, but then that is part of the challenge. It just seemed to take slightly too long for the jetpack's lift to kick in. I also struggled with the camera when moving left to mop up remaining enemies (which was a bit frustrating, but true to its origins).

It was just too hard for me, too. I'm not much of a fan of challenging action games. I enjoyed the experience, though.

Very nice shooter.

This one has parallax scrolling and a nice glow effect

Added 1st Boss!
