Ranked from 32 ratings. Score is adjusted from raw score by the median number of ratings per game in the jam.

Please list any pre-made art/music/code/other assets that you used.
Found the F29 and Mig19 models on Turbosquid. Both were too good to pass up. Everything else, from the music, assets, grass shader, and idea were created during the jam timeframe.

How many members in your team?

Team of 4

List each team member's role, along with their social media / website links!
Everything is in the credits, but mobypixel did the music, pixelnoise sfx, cfTempest (check out his podcast) did the vfx, retrotitan made the 3d models other than described above, billy helped with game design, i did all coding/art/mechanics, and gave a special thanks to greenfox who is a godot patreon and helped me with a few choke points since this is my first godot project. Working in a group was really fun.

Anything you want to say to players before they play?
Pretty simple: Q to quit, click to shoot. There's a chalkboard at the beginning that explains the only quirk in the mechanics.

Nice game!

The visuals and the audio are very good, and the game is fun to play. I was impressed with the graphics for being so simple but so pretty.

Unexpectedness: besides the illuminati pyramid, I don't see any other things to add to the theme.

I had one problem with the resolution: In my monitor, I opened the game and part of the scene was off the screen. And also, sometimes the camera goes spinning and it made me a little dizzy.

Despite the issues I had, it is a great game with a lot of potential! Congratulations!

The music, visuals and controls is all really good. 

This looks like a game, but when I am playing it, it don't really feel like a game. The main issue is that this game have nearly no difficulty, and much of the time you don't really need to do anything. 

Developer(+1)

Agree it's not difficult... we designed it for casual gamers in a jam setting so you're right that it probably doesn't appeal to serious gamers that are looking for a challenge. Happy you like the music, visuals, and controls though!

The music was YES! I actually loved this game! While nothing was unexpected, really- this was just fun. And I don't even like shooters. The plane handles really well, I loved the graphic style, and it had a boss. All around, awesome work!

My Youtube video will come out tomorrow, will let you know so you can see my reaction!

Developer

Loved your game!

Loved the visuals! The toon-ish shader with the red and blue was a really nice aesthetic and I really enjoyed how it was nicely complimented by a BOP of a soundtrack. The song somehow reminded me a lot of Sonic Heroes -- I was just bopping my head, enthusiastically enjoying the whole ride. I also thought that the grass was a really nice touch (especially how it wades as you sh'move right through it).

The shooting and the movement was also super duper fun and unique! I love how you made the camera roll without making the game feel disorienting. I also love how the shooting is a little offset by the movement and the reticle, but I had a little bit of trouble shooting things at the edge of the screen (i.e. the left/right-most turrets on the boss).

Regardless this was an incredibly polished experience and I enjoyed it a lot! Incredibly well-scoped and amazingly executed! Now I just need that soundtrack on loop to listen to while I work :)

Developer

Tanatb- thank you for your very thoughtful review, and it’s great to hear you enjoyed the finished product! Would you mind posting this on the main game page? Also dm me on discord and I’ll talk to mobypixel about getting you the OST. He also has a YouTube channel where he jams out in a variety of genres.

One of the most satisfying games I've played so far! I loved the arcade feel

Developer

Awesome, glad you got your money's worth!

I like this, i can play only with my mouse and looks pretty too =)

Developer

Fabulous, glad you liked it!

Very very well polished, the simplicity lent itself well to a really nice experience, the visuals were lovely, and the music was fitting. 

If I had any critique it would be there isn't a whole lot of unexpected here. 

Developer(+1)

Fair critique. Glad you liked it though!

Awesome visuals, fun and satisfying gameplay! I liked the music a lot!

Props for releasing a Linux version! I needed to Alt-Tab the game to make mouse movement work but otherwise everything is great!

Developer (1 edit) (+1)

Theor - our pleasure! Will look into the Linux build... if you DM me your version of Linux on discord and ill look into it. In any event thank you for your kind feedback!

Sure, I’ve sent you a message!

Knopka is the name of my game by the way, not my nickname. But it’s okay. ;-)

Damn, should probably not be responding to messages on my phone after margaritas!

Super fun, love the retro aesthetic. Great boss battle! Music is awesome too.

Developer

Newt- we are thrilled you enjoyed it! I was very lucky to work with such a great team.

Took me about 5 restarts to figure out that there’s nothing wrong with the controls, you’re just not supposed to control the aircraft at all! So the only thing you can do is shoot, and you have no reason not to. So, I’d say the gameplay needs polishing. The visuals and music are amazing, good job!

Developer(+1)

Lisyarus - the plane is controlled with the mouse, sorry it didn’t work on your pc. If you don’t mind, DM me on discord with details and I’ll look into it. Not worried about any ratings on itch, just wish you could enjoy the experience!

Amazing graphic style! loved the movement and gameplay, I think it has a great potential to become an incredible shmup in the style of StarFox and Panzer Dragon

Developer(+1)

thanks Yuri! Mind posting this on the main game page?

the only thing I would say is a further development in the game to expand it. The visuals were amazing!! 

Developer

Super happy you like it. Mind posting your comment on the main game page? Will help generate interest in continuing the project!

Great game. Looks cool and plays well. I like the colors and shading. It would be nice to see this one as a full game outside of gamejam with more content.
