I really love this character's design and the music was pretty cool. I love that the boss looks just like you, kinda like they're0 another tech adventurer

Developer

Thanks so much for the feed back, and we are glad someone noticed that! They are, in fact, on their own adventures, testing tech in the warehouse of a dungeon.

The art was really nice. I liked the shooting and how it looked. I wish my range was a bit further. I liked the boss battle. That was a cool touch. It was a bit hard to get around at times because the levels were a lot of open space and sometimes I had to backtrack. The background music was cool too.

Developer

Glad you enjoyed it! We definitely feel the need for some refinement, level generation of this type has been a hurdle of ours for a while. We hope to supplement the backtracking with more points of interest and hostiles. Thank you for your feedback!

Pretty good but the game is a bit :0 if you know what i mean

Developer

Thank you for your feed back, we apologize  but we are unsure of the emotion you mean to convey by ":0"

i did not find any of the actual boosts you showed and neither action :/

Try shooting the blue towers and the guns are located on floor 2 and floor 3

Nice concept! I liked the music and art style too. Could use some refinement to make it a bit more fun - maybe smaller levels or more enemies - got a bit dull wandering through large open areas. Seems like a good base for something though!

Developer

Thanks for your feedback! We have plans for refining the level generation (this is the first time we successfully got one up and running!) Glad you enjoyed it! 

The controls were tight. The overall feel of the game was easy, understandable, and fun.

Developer

Thanks for your feedback! Glad you enjoyed it!

Nice game with cool music, instruction in game will be great. Movement seems to be stuck sometimes and player keep moving without a key pressed.

Developer

Thanks for your feedback! Be on the look out for an updated version in the near future. We will be looking into the movement issue, but it may be lag on your end(internet or itch page itself).

Man that music was da bomb. I wish I could dash a little smoother and the camera tracking was a little tighter. But great!

The instructions on the game page helped clarify things. I loved the item that fixed the sound, and the shooting felt pretty good too. Solid game!

Thanks for the feedback! 

We cut it super close to the deadline and weren't able to add it into the game heh!

That is my favorite item as well! Glad you enjoyed it!

I am not sure if I was missing something but there seemed to be no wincon and overall no clear objective.  I figured out to pretty much shoot everything but nothing particularly posed a challenge and I am not sure if I could die.  I liked the art and the music was nice but got a little repetitive.  A few additional varied enemies would have been nice but the game looked polished.  Just needed to know what I should be doing and if I could die, could accomplish this with either audio voice over from a commanding officer or text.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! 

We cut it pretty close, and weren't able to add all the content we wanted (such is the nature of jams and all lol). 

What was left is a non hostile dungeon crawl. The base concept is your character is modular, and is testing components for dungeon crawling. We have updated the game page with a banner that explains all of the modules and what they do! 

Read Me!

this thing...

You can die, but the only thing in the game that is deadly is the first boss (We intended for two more with increasing difficulty). Also if you press space on the red corpses they take you to the next floor. 

Thanks again,

Well not knowing what to do with the red corpse, which looked like a popsicle is what stopped me.

Developer

Got ya! Yea the bosses were going to have a whole animation and text pop ups and what not. 

Thanks again!
