When trying to load the game, it is just a copy of the controls?

Great work. It would be great to have a retry button, but still fun to play.

Developer

Thanks!  I wanted to have a retry button but I just ran out of time.  I vastly underestimated how long it'd take me to get even simple things done!

I thought this was a great game!

Developer

Thanks for the kind words.

Man don't be so hard on yourself in your game description :P

Developer

Thanks.  I think at the time I had just finished looking at the #PixelWeekendJam posts on Twitter and was just feeling very far behind.  It's really impressive how much people got done!

I loved how we had the same concept idea, but made it wastly different :D liked it!

Thanks.  RGB War is really cool: you did an awesome job this past weekend.

Submitted

The game is really fun. The shoot mechanics is cool.

Developer

Thanks: glad you liked the shoot mechanics.  I spent a fair amount of time trying to tweak them to feel all right.  There were some things I couldn't get done in time, but hopefully in the future.

Nice game for your first game, mine was my first too

Developer

Thanks.  Color Roll was a great first game, too.  I'm going to go back to it again -- the fact that I didn't beat two of those levels is getting to me.

Thanks for liking it

Congrats for your first Jam, it's fun to play too. I'd suggest making it auto-shoot when left clicking, also a system to restart the game when you die. Cheers!

Thanks!  I definitely agree with your suggestions.  If I don't try to enter this weekend's Pixel Weekend Jam #3 I'll implement them soon.
