Part 2!I use the word "hate" a few times in this, but it's nothing critical of the game. It's still a great time overall that I could get better at with practice. The only issue I have with it is a lack of save system. Even an old school password system would be nice.
Funny you should mention the save system.
We actually just made a post on our devlog announcing the save system to be coming in the next update, since its a popular request. We'll let you know when we post it up!
Part 3!Now with 100% more shield usage! (Which amounts to little, considering I still get hit a lot!)
Be sure to check out version 1.1, now with 100% more saving AND streamer-friendly!
Part 4!Now with a save file!
Part 5!Getting more challenging now.
Skipped a few to avoid cluttering the page. Here's part 10!Overall, this is a great game and I enjoyed playing through it. The music was catchy, especially the main theme, and I liked hunting for the secrets in each stage. Some of the bosses were a tad frustrating, but in that "early era games" way where the player had to learn how to play. With a little more polish on the visuals and combat, I could easily see this being sold here or on Steam. Maybe even a sequel...depending on what the ending is like. Unfortunately, while fighting the final final boss, the game bugged out and I could not finish it in this video. Still, that hiccup aside, great job, devs. Hopefully word of your game will spread.
