Fantastic tool, will definitely be making use of this a lot!

First I just want to say that I LOVE the aesthetic you've got going on here. Big fan of the low res, limited palette, retro vibe, although I do feel like this could be improved in some areas.
Most notably, the particle effects for enemy deaths don't conform to the same strict colour palette that's present for the other sprites, nor do they keep to the same rigid movement style that enemies do. There are some tools available for Unity that come help overcome these issues, I can send you a link to them if that's something you're interested in.
Some other QoL features would also go a long way such as the inclusion of a pause mode, controller support and firing with the directional keys, which was my first instinct considering this is a twin-stick shooter.
Also a huge fan of the enemy spawners and the animation of each new enemy being built piece by piece, an excellent little feature.

Thanks very much, Sean! This jam has largely been experimental for me so it's good to hear about stuff that doesn't work so well and I do agree, the shooting doesn't 100% fit here due to the speed / screen size.
Your game looks rad as fuck by the way.
I hate to be 'that guy' but the particle effect used when you pick up the collectable at the start uses colours outside of the 4 in your palette due to the opacity levels.
I love how bouncy landing on enemies is though, fun stuff :).
Neat experience, and awesome to see this limited resolution + colour palette used to thematic effect too. The one downside of this is text can sometimes become difficult to read against such strong white colours, I found myself staring at a few ceilings trying to bits of text.
Otherwise, cool game!
