Great game! Destroying enemies feel incredible. One of the best game I have seen in this game jam. Maybe you could make it more clear when you hit an enemy but don't kill it.

You can also make a disappear animation for the enemies death particles.

Game felt awesome to play, I don't think it fits the theme too well though.

Developer

Thanks for playing! For there and back, I decided to implement near death and back!

that's an option theme, the focus is collection, where's the collection in your game?

Hey, awesome game you've got there. I really liked the neon feel as well as the whole glitch thing that was an awesome way to bring the player back into the game. I do have to say that a healthbar would have helped and maybe some upgrades so i could fire faster etc as it got very hectic later on. Great jam entry though, nice to see it done in a week too.

Thank you! I spent a lot of time for the neon look and glitch! I didn't get time to add a health-bar and a lot of power-ups i'll  add it in a post jam version!

The graphics and presentation of this were SO cool! I love glitch effects so this was really cool, but I have to echo the issue that the screen shake was a little intense, and when a ton of enemies showed up I started to feel a little sick. Very cool overall though and I would love to play a fully fleshed out project like this!

Developer

Thanks a lot for playing! The screen shake is a result of not playtesting! Thanks for rating, playing and the feedback!!!

It has a really good amount of polish and the game was simple yet fun. However, i feel like there's a little too much screen shake considering how many enemies there are and made me feel a little sick. The death screen's also was very sudden and i didn't know how much health i had. Other than that, great work!

Developer

Thank you! Yes, the screen shake was a result of not playtesting. And I probably should have added a health bar, but I didn't get time. Anyways, thanks for playing!

Firstly, I would like to say how I was ready to take a review for your game when I died and then I realised I was in another area lol, but now I completed everything and I can talk about it

I really like what you did with all the particles, mainly, the red area background, it was amazing

I also got a lot of glitches that I would like to report - 
- You can kill enemies even if they are not on your screen, and cause the screen to shake without seeing you kill any enemie

- The "really dead screen" was cut on half for me, saying only "you'r definitely dead th-, I think it was supposed to show you're definitely dead this time, but idk

- On that same dead screen my 3430 score entered inside the score text, and it was almost impossible to see my score, I will take a picture of what it looks like to you

Also I didnt see anything related to collectables, if you can say it for me I will chance my vote about it, but great game and thanks for reading.

Developer

Thanks a lot for the great feedback! There are some text glitches the text is bigger than it should be, I will fix it in a sec, You collect points!

Stunning looking game! Tho the screen shake is a bit much and the rotating thing did make me nauseous a bit... Anyway pretty good game :)

Developer

Thanks a lot! I should probably playtest more!
