I Loved the visuals and me and my 2 dead me shooting all together! :) This is a very nice twist to the shmup genre, it could be took further on a bigger game.

Amazing use of the theme, the game is really fun to play! Loved trying to break the egg. Good job!

Howdy folks! My game was made JavaScript building off the code I used for my js13k game Bounce Back. The source code is on GitHub.

I integrated the theme by having ghosts of your previous lives return to help you after each death. There is also a juggling mechanic like the Twin Bee / Stinger series of games where you can juggle an egg for massive bonus points. 

The level is procedurally generated every time you start a new game and gets progressively more difficult over time. There are 2 ways to shoot, hold fire for fully auto, or wait to charge up a powerful blast. 

The game can be played with keyboard, mouse, or gamepad in several different configurations. Player's high score is tracked for when they return. I have yet to break 1000 points. The sound effects use ZzFX, my tiny JavaScript sound generator.

I also used the same font and font rendering system I made for Bogus Roads.

I wasn't very good at the game. I wasn't sure what the goal was exactly but I just avoided everything and ended up with a score of 0 every time. I am no expert.

The enemies were great. Nice design, and predictable yet challenging behavior patterns.

The sounds aren't very Nokia 3310. Clever use of flickering on the ghosts of your previous attempts. I'm not sure the Nokia could refresh at that rate but it's a good idea.

Thanks for the feedback!

It's a shooter, you are supposed to shoot stuff mostly. You can play it without shooting (like you can any shooter) but it will probably not be nearly as fun. and yeah, you won't get any points. I will make it more clear in the description that you can shoot.
