Lovely background and sound effects! I included it in my LowRezJam compilation, if you’d like to take a look :)

Developer

Thanks again! :)

Looks so cute and I really want to play....but no Windows. ;_; Amazing graphics, though, and the screen reads very well, even in small format!

Developer

I'll have to look into porting some time, but thanks for checking it out though :)

I loved playing the game! The BG art is lovely. difficulty was fair. GJ

Developer

Thank you :)

The graphics and controls are slick. I would love to see you continue on this one! I agree with others that background music and multiple lives/hit points would be nice (maybe an easy mode? hehe). Very nice entry overall.

Thank you. I'll see about different difficulties next time :)

Neat game. It's fun flying around and shooting stuff. The background is really nice - I like the lighting on the poles that go past. The sounds effect are cool, too. Personally, I would have liked multiple lives as it's pretty disappointing starting over after one mistake.

Developer(+1)

Thank you! I had considered multiple lives, but i guess I like it arcade hard haha. I'll be more fair next game though :)

Wonderful game, I absolutely loved it.
Graphics and audio are just perfect. The game itself is really fun to play though wish it had some cool powerups, but for a jam entry, it is very impressive. Amazing job, keep it up.
P.S. you could check out my entry if you wish, (Shamless selfpromotion).

Thank you :) And yeah I'll check it out.

For me the difficulty scaled just about right :) Love the look of the game, nice color choices, plays smooth and plus points for the neat enemy descriptions. Would have liked some background music though.

Developer

I had considered music but it was 3 days until the deadline, definitetly next time though :)
(I thought I replied earlier but looks like i hadn't, whoops!)

Moody visuals. For all its simplicity, the enemy types seem to have their own personalities. Appreciate the little details like particle effects and score turning yellow once you pass your previous record.

Maybe it's just because I'm a Touhou player, but I think the difficulty could scale a bit faster. 

Developer(+1)

Thank you! It's funny because i was worried it scaled too fast, so atleast i know now haha :)

I definitely wouldn't say it was "too fast"!! Personally I was pretty terrible at it. But  it's an incredibly adorable game; great "feel", sounds were cute and complimentary to the visuals. I'm was also inclined to love it just because it reminded me of Kiki's delivery service :)

That's why she's in silhouette ;) haha
I'm happy to hear that- and I wouldn't mind making some sort of difficulty slider next time.
