Neat game! I included it in my compilation video series of the ‘So Bad It’s Good’ Jam, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Good minimalistic bullet game. Well done.

Brilliant. There wasn't any way to fight back, right? It was just dodging, right?

Developer(+1)

Yes, you can fight back. Hold the left mouse button to shoot! :)

Thanks for playing!

I love the music! I also like how every enemy feels like a mini-boss. once a second enemy spawns though, I'm doomed :P

I think a health bar for the enemies would be a good addition, but overall, excellent!

Really nice little bullet hell here. I managed to get 8 enemies. To be honest, if anything, this game is too good for this jam! Really enjoyed it nonetheless though.

Enemy types are really cool. Sound direction is nice. Maybe a bit more feedback when you get hit won't go amiss. Overall though this is a really solid effort!

Honestly, just a very good minimal bullet hell. Great sound, nice art style, good enemy variation. I think this is too good for this jam!

Nice job!

I like the aesthetic a lot. From the graphics to the sound, you really nailed it!

I've decided to try using a standard format for all my feedback this time around. Please excuse me if I come across as overly curt or miss something important about your game. I'm writing these all quite hastily as there are a lot of games in the jam this year!

What I liked

Retro minimalist aesthetic and nice chiptune music.

Has a kind of zen, relaxing feel to it but it also intense at the same time.

What I didn't like

I'm just not really into bullet hells so much.

Could use a scoring system.

Did I think it was so bad it was good?

Not at all. It's minimalist but functional, and really didn't seem bad at all.

My thoughts on the modifier implementation

Every bullet hell is impossible for me.

Verdict

A neat little retro minimalist game. Not bad at all.

If you have any questions, comments, queries or concerns, please reply and I'll do my best to get back to you.

This is a great game.  But I would go so far as to say it's just straight up good rather than so bad it's good?

I like your game, it is very challenging.

It was a minimalist masterpiece. I couldn't find anything bad about the game except for the kerning.

Thanks so much!

I like it. You've taken the SHMUP genre, and reduced it to its best parts.
