Pretty fun. This projectile is a nice way to not give the player the stereotypical rapid fire weapon. I like facing the edge and shooting so the blast kills the enemies behinde me. I got 462 points.

I like all the little details you've taken care of. Makes it feel like a complete game. Sound is nice and the a rt direction is really great. Also, I think the difficulty was just fine. Maybe the game can start easy and get faster later on?

I really like the art style, minimalist and clean. The game is quite hard but fun :) Some additional items would be nice, like bombs to drop on the enemies! Anyway, nice little game, good job ^_^

Additional items would definitely make the game more fun and interesting, thanks for the suggestion ^_^

Very nice music and art style. :)

For whatever reason the gameplay reminded me a bit of Call Of Duty Zombie Mode, because of the horde of enemies you drag behind as a player. :D

My score was 653.

I like it! Excellent feel. The swarm is maybe a touch too fast, though.

Developer

Yep agreed, we are going to balance the game a bit more once the jam is over. Thanks for playing! :)

Nice little game, maybe could add more mechanics to the player for better gameplay, anyway to slowdown the swarm ? ;)

Developer

A way to slow down the swarm a neat idea! Maybe a pickup or some sort? Nevertheless, thanks for the feedback and we hope you had fun playing! :)

yes exactly, keep in simple like it is but just one perk to slow them down would be nice, pickups really add to arcade game becasue there is also the pro and con of risking it to catch the pickup vs escape.

Nice minimalist graphics, great music, challenge ramps up pretty well. 

Developer

Thanks, we spent a lot of time trying to balance the game to make sure its fun, yet challenging for the players, so I'm glad you like it :)

So elegant!

Looks nice, sounds nice, feels nice!

And you want to restart after you fail!

Developer

Thanks! Glad you enjoyed it :)

great game, desperate need a joystick for moving diagonally though

Developer

Thanks! Yep, keyboard inputs can take some time to get used to, since the game was made for the joystick. But practice makes perfect! :)

This is awesome! The vibe of the game is really cool and I love the start menu, it's just like an arcade

Developer

Thank you! :)
