So this shit wont let me post my full review... so here it is.
Pros: Very solid gameplay. Shows lots of promise.
Cons: Art looks like its from newgrounds.
Hey! Thanks for the input. I'm well aware the game is slow. I needed to work on hangar screen, so there wasnt much time to rebalance the game around a faster speed. The plan was (and still is) to have weapon types of various firing speeds and projectile speed (and range), lasers being the fastest, then going down to ballistic, missiles, photon, and finally mines. But as you might imagine i ran out of time to really implement much of that into the demo. Enemies don't really have an AI yet either, so they just kinda randomly fire.
The update I'm working on ATM speeds the game up somewhat, but its gonna be a while before its ready.
Shows lots of promise. Keep it up. If it were up to me I'd turn this into a mixture between Stranded Kids/Survival Kids for GBC and Harvest Moon/Stardew valley.
Heres my vivid imagination when I play this: Imagine a tropical Island where you've washed up. You pick up a stick and a rock and combine them to make a shovel. Eating raw berries you eventually find some seeds, grow food and settle down in a hollow log. There's a few areas available to you but a huge boulder blocking off the path to the rest of the island. Eventually you're able to grow bamboo (need to water it, need to make watering can, need to give it nutrients, have to hunt/gather specific stuff to turn it into fertilizer etc. Progression based on your farming. Once you have bamboo you can use a stick of it to stick it under huge boulder, move it and get further inland. You find more wild animals to hunt, wild tomato plant that you can grow using bamboo to support it, etc. You get a few more areas, but to the east is a fast river with a waterfall that you cant cross. Gonna need to make/grow something to cross it. You eventually build a home out of the hollow log, build more outposts/farms in the new areas of the island, eventually you find a cove with strong wood and start building a boat. The end goal is to leave the island.
I'm sure you know what harvest moon is, but maybe take a look at Survival Kids. I'd kill for a game that combined the two.
