Yes, the pile of meat is killable (5 shots), there is actually no spread on the shotgun, I have just made the projectile bigger. The projectile flies from the shotgun not from middle screen.
Oh okay. Good to know. I may hop back on there and look over the mechanics a bit more. I'm also a developer, and i always love seeing how other people accomplish different mechanics and the mindset behind them. If you're interested in talking this kinda stuff, my discord has quite a few like minded people. Maybe even offer some insight into future projects?
