love the astronauts, the different style to enemy attacks across the screen is really nice, only complain is the hit sound, is a bit loud. great game!

OHH I really like shooter games! this one was good. I like the enemies and that you had to collect the space astronauts.

Fun shooter.  I didn't spot the in browser game window at first, but once I clicked all was well.  Interesting movement.

Super fun game! As a fan of shmup games like this (eg Touhou) this is definitely up my alley! Sadly wasn't able to complete it the first try, but I loved it! I'm not sure why enemies drop new colonists for you, but I still like the idea of it being your health, so it didn't really bother me. If you have the time, I hope you can also look at my game!

Man down! Man down! I let you boys down! - Me. This game is fantastic. Starts slow and the pace goes up rapidly. It got so hard that you were throwing regular ships, side swiping ships and those connected laser ones. Mad game that is a lot of fun. The music went really well with it too and the sound effects were on point, well done!

Thanks! That's really great to hear especially since this is my first game jam.

I had some problems playing the game due to the game window being too large for my monitor. Like I actually couldn't click the back button on the credits because it was bellow my toolbar. While the webGL version works I have it being cut off on the top and bottom because the window is too tall. I also feel like the bullets being shot is wayy to loud and just devolves into a mess of explosions. Music is pretty good, and the ships while having some dithering could be a bit more detailed. The idea of using astronauts you save by defeating other ships is rather unique however, and kinda quirky.

Thank you, this is my first time uploading a project online so I wasn't quite sure how to get it to work with all systems.  Thanks for the criticism  - Kolocop

I like the power ups and the idea of the crew being your health!
