Great experience. Very 'oldschool hori' where memorization and execution came with dedicated practice. Laser was my favorite weapon and I liked that bursting the powerup matched yours. Would have liked if bursting swapped a powerup to another type if it already matches your current loadout. There were times when I was getting only normal shot and wanted laser. If there will be more weapons you could make a bursted powerup bounce to mid screen before coming back left. This would give more opportunity to grab it but also to cycle through types until getting the one you want. Make the ship sprite the hitbox for powerups and keep the cockpit for collisions. Would alleviate the issue of overshooting an upgrade in the heat of battle.
For what it is going for you delivered on the difficulty. Maybe add an easier option but don't shy away from going harder as well. This is the kind of game that gets a dedicated fanbase competing for leaderboard and easier settings can be for everyone else. Keep it up!

This was hard honestly! It probably shouldn't have but it took me a while to figure out I had to dash through the rings to activate them. Getting the key to the lock was a whole other challenge itself! Just a couple of things I noticed:

1) When the game is paused you can still press jump and hear the sound effect
2) There might have been a way to do it that I missed but I would have loved the ability to bring the phone menu back up. I tried every button on a controller and all I could find was jump,dash,pause, and text messages

That being said I could see what you were going for with this game and with polish and music(this alone would improve so much) this project of yours is turning out to be a really interesting game! (the day and night cycle was a nice touch by the way. I noticed it on the last leg of my journey with the key). I look forward to seeing where you take this!

Very interesting game you have made here! The Mega Man vibe is real and that is a positive.I was interested in the "you made a new friend" text but then became even more so when I discovered there was a whole database dedicated to them. And from the looks of it a fairly extensive one at that! Some things I noticed:

1) Using the laser weapon seems to only hit the first enemy in a group of large creatures (big slimes etc) even though it looks to be piercing through everything. On smaller groups it is apparent that everything is taking damage.
2) I was able to just run forward and keep my finger on the fire button and kill almost half of the enemies before I even saw them.
3) The camera only starts following after you have crossed the midway point of the screen by a bit. This leads to you being able to see behind you more than you can see in front. I think if you reverse this it will enhance the gaming experience.

Overall it is a great start!

I don't normally play these kinds of games but it was honestly kind of hard to stop once I started. It took almost a full play before I realized why the ball was stopping about halfway up the lane despite me messing with the rpm (which should have given it away really). After I started messing with the actual strength of the throw it became a play of me trying to get at least ONE strike. After I finally got one I started a play to see how many I could actually get. Pretty fun. I am not sure I would actively play it if I came across it in the wild, more so because it is outside the genres of my interest and not because of the quality of the game, but having crossed paths with it I can definitely say it was a fun experience and one I do not regret. Thank you for making it!

It was charming. I had tried to use keyboard initially because for some reason my gamepad wasn't being detected but after a few frustrating attempts I decided to try the gamepad again and it worked. What followed was a far more focused and far more fun experience! Some of the enemy placement, specifically with enemies firing at you from off screen before you have even seen them is a bit of an issue in my opinion. I could understand if they saw you/you saw them and then you tried to back away. I was honestly hoping to be able to destroy those rotating turrets you had in the last segment but when I found I couldn't I resigned myself to slowly getting through it as best I could (it took about 5 attempts and the successful one had me at one hit til death). Other than the sometimes awkward difficulty spikes and sniper A.I. I had fun and I would definitely come back and play it again!

Definitely fun and I wish I could have continued but I am very uncomfortable with keyboard controls so any accuracy/precision I could have gained by being able to use my preferred input device (gamepad) was thrown to the wayside. After about 20 minutes of attempts I walked away, not frustrated at the game (because it is honestly fun) but frustrated at my inability to control it properly. If you could add gamepad support that would make this already fun game even more enoyable!

Very nice experience. I loved the arcade feeling it gave and I also loved that it was accessible despite this. The girl cat crying when she has only one health left is adorable. Hopefully sometime in the future you could include gamepad rebind as I found myself wishing one of the face buttons could have been shield. Keep going because this is a really fun game!

Fantastic atmosphere. The combat is very difficult (though I feel I might have done better with the aid of a gamepad as I am pretty terrible with keyboard playing). It is amazing what you have been able to accomplish is such a short time. I had no issue with any of the logic puzzles (**SPOILERS** although I died to my third vcombat encounter on my way to axe down the boarded up door***END SPOILERS). So really the only issue I had was unfamiliarity with the input device for gaming. Otherwise everything felt really good. Hope you continue with this project!

I am a fan of visual novels and text heavy games in general and I absolutely loved all of my time with Metanoia. It was an engrossing experience and one I hope to be able to continue in the future. Keep up the good work, this one is a gem!

Probably a very minor issue to handle but every time I died and started over I had to hit F2 again so I could use my controller (...I died a lot).

Some of the movement felt a bit slippery(?) I would stop moving but it felt like she would slide further along into a wall much more than a physics based stop would usually give (if that is even something you actually added).

The game, however felt really really nice. I played on fantastic settings using an almost 10 year old machine that has never had a single upgrade in parts and it played very smooth with no slowdown at all. Some of the enemy placement felt a little unfair but the overall experience was really nice. I wasn't fond of any of the other guns sans the starting weapons and even after I picked up the frost one to handle the buzz saw enemy I still went back to get my "Re-paw-lver". The starting weapons just have a meatier feedback to them so they actually feel powerful. Great game with an amazing future!

I am terrible with keyboard and mouse controls but I had fun with this demo. The data spike punch was oddly satisfying. It is probably my weaker fps skills talking but I felt like the almost instantaneous reaction time of the enemies (from seeing you to shooting) made it almost impossible to not take a few shots even if you were just peeking around the corner real fast (though I suppose they are machines so their reaction time would be spot on). Great experience regardless!

Very minor nitpicks really. Holding towards a wall while against it and almost simultaneously holding jump results in an odd animation loop. There also seems to be an odd bug where if you go to higher ground and the camera pans up with you, you can actually drop down to the lower area you were at before and instantly die as if you dropped into a death pit.
All that being said I thought it felt really slick and functional. There is a level of polish and care here that shines through. You really care for this project and if you can maintain this quality throughout the rest of the game you will have something magical here for sure!

I have never played a game in this genre (if another exists) but I can definitely see the appeal in it if only I had more time to give it. Even though I ended up trying and failing 5 times (two of those times the ranger and wizard refused to leave the starting room even though the knight and thief had ventured out already and no enemies were close by to prevent them from joining the other two) I still found myself wanting to try 'just one more time'. Surprisingly I wasn't annoyed by the music at all (in fact I would say it complimented the game very well and kept everything buoyant and approachable. Had it been more serious music I probably would have given up after a second try out of frustration from not being able to completely understand the game).

It would be pretty nice if you continued to work on it just to see where it ends up!

I enjoyed this. Your character is really cute and the music was endearing. The combat was engaging enough but I wish it had more enemy movement when they attack (but this is a quick demo and a complete non issue at this time!). The only issues I had were:

1) the camera going through walls in the dungeon. I like tank controls because I grew up with them but when combined with the camera+wall interaction made it a bit unpleasant.

2) I could use a gamepad (wireless x360) to move around but none of the other buttons on it worked besides pause(start). I had to use the keyboard to confirm and open menus

3) Probably the biggest one. For some reason when entering the abilities window from my status screen the game became unable to leave the ability window. Not a single button on the gamepad or keyboard did anything but scroll up and down the spell list and confirm on them.

This has amazing potential!

First the issues. The combat feels "sticky" and it takes a bit long to go from standing to crouching in order to react to ground enemies. You can get stuck at the tops of staircases and fall into bottomless pits at the bottom of them. I don't know if the standing enemies were meant to be walking in mid air sometimes (maybe they are going to be apparitions?) but I wanted to report that.

All that being said I still had a great time. I appreciated seeing the bats in the far distance and can tell that will lend itself well to building the atmosphere. With enough polish and love this could be a really great game and I hope you continue to work on it!

I was getting into the game but in the second room (I think) this error popped up: http://imgur.com/a/6Di3p

I hit ignore and a few seconds later it popped up again. I was unable to get around it unfortunately. I loved the music and the general mood of the game though!

This made me remember the good times I had with Link's Awakening and I appreciate that. Besides the obviously menu issues that you are aware of the only other thing I could think to bring up that isn't praise would be that the weapons (or at least the axe in general since that is all I found) didn't "feel" impactful. Maybe I was hoping for a low key sound effect for swinging or maybe just one for contact, I honestly couldn't say, but it felt like something was missing to make the weapon feel powerful. I look forward to your continued progress!

It was a cute experience with very nice graphics. The only bug (outside of the obviously 'in development' state of the game itself) is that when choosing windowed mode and 1280x960 the game still forced itself into full screen mode with no way to leave the game other than to hard crash it in task manager. Otherwise it is really well done and I look forward to seeing how it continues to develop!

It was thoroughly enjoyable (I found at least 2 pieces I could not get to so I am pretty sure I wasn't even close to finishing it). I did however give it a good 30min of effort. The sound effects were fitting and the background music was subdued enough that not once did I feel like they overstayed their welcome. In fact I would say their quality helped to offset the frustration that was mildly bubbling at the surface as the attempts dragged to their last.

Overall I think you have a really nice game here and if you wanted to you could probably turn it into something much more than it is (but that might destroy the intent and purpose behind it. Only you can say.)
Thank you for making such an enjoyable experience!

Was getting this error message when trying to launch the game. Both the standalone .exe as well as the .zip

I was really looking forward to it as well!
