Really cool idea! The bullet effect lighting up the room gives adds a nice feel! The score could be displayed at all times!

I liked that if you moved from the powerspot, the screen went dark and it was hard to see the enemies! Makes you feel like you're powering up everything.

Maybe add a firerate to the gun to make it automatic.

Developer

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it.

Sure, the gunplay is something I should defo try to work on a little more

Wow, cool idea. This simple trick really gives a scary feeling.

Developer

Thanks!

Maybe I could turn this into a survival-horro game haha

Really fun! I had a pretty similar idea when I read about the jam topic :)

Solid mechanics and I love the moments when you go around to collect the energy and the light turns off :)

I think the lights mechanic were the best, making everything dark when you go out to get health or running from enemies was a brilliant idea!

Developer

Thank you so much :D It was the first idea I got from the theme that I liked, and tried to build everything around it

I like the lights on/off idea, and I'm a fan of the art (mainly the battery dude)! The shooting felt a bit unresponsive, but aside from that awesome for 3 hours - this could probably turn into some sort of fast-paced shooter/puzzle-ish game with some poish & features!

Developer

Thanks, I really appreciate your comment haha I'm not very fond of my art skills. The battery was the only thing I worked on for more than 5 minutes, though.

Yep, about the shooting, that's one of the parts I had more non-executed ideas. I wanted ammo, reloading, auto mode... Could be much better. But hey, with only 3 hours...

Thanks for playing

Pretty good. I think the power source mechanic worked very well in the gameplay. The game could have been a bit more difficult though.

Developer(+1)

Thanks! I agree, the game feels quite easy. With more time, I could've tested and tweaked values a little to get some more challenge out of it, but I had already gone some minutes over the 3 hour limit...

Nice one! I totally forgot to make different types of enemies like you did.
