Really cool game! You certainly nabbed the Downwell aesthetic! The gameplay itself was actually rather interesting, although I found myself resorting solely on the shield. Getting hit means getting one step closer to death, and it didn't seem worth it to get one bullet that couldn't kill an enemy in one hit. Plus, the shield regenerates faster than the health! All in all, a pretty fun game!
Agree that the balancing is a bit off, am trying to figure out what's the best way to balance this (perhaps more starting ammo). Hopefully the shield requiring a higher accuracy combined with trickier enemies later on forces the player to rely on shooting as well. Thanks for playing!
