Nice game! I included it in my LowRezJam compilation, if you’d like to take a look :)

From a design standpoint this is close to perfect, this shuriken mechanic where the stronger the attack, the less risk you have to take to get the enemy, is amazing. You've also got a nice variety of enemies and a clean interface. Could really benefit from some audio, at least sound effects, it would feel even more satisfying!

Also for a space game I kinda wished for a starry background but I'm just nitpicking at this point ^^

Thanks, I was trying to keep it simple.
Maybe one day it'll be like what I envisioned, it's a long way to go though.

Really enjoyed the concept of this game! However, once I hit 35 points all I seemed to get was powerups and no more enemies spawned in for me. Hope to see this expand into a bigger project.

Glad you liked it.
I got that bug when I was testing it. They stop moving before they reach the end point, thus stopping the next wave.

Shooting and then collecting your own projectile to fuel your ammo is a cool idea! I wish there was some cool sounds to go with this!

It was next on the list, but my "free" time ended up being far less than expected.

I wish the stars would recharge cause a lot of the time I was out of energy

Both energy and shield regenerate but I nerfed it when I balanced the game. Certainly something I'll look into.

The game is quite simple, but it is a cool simple game, and it is endless so you can play a lot =p I would like to see a custom background instead of the gray screen, but besides that great job !

I had far less time than I expected so it's a basic prototype. There are tons of improvements pending.
