WASD or Arrow Keys to move the player

The guitar is killing me. Sounds like a nice idea, like a survival shooter with interesting weapons.

Very cool, I like the lighting/mood. It would be good if it was more obvious what was a powerup, what was an enemy, etc.

Fun game! Music and gameplay is good.
Some sound effects would be nice to add.

I imagine this is what Geometry Wars looked like before they revamped the art style. Sorry, but I do not like the graphics. They remind me of a previous game I tried making that crashed and burned and killed my inspiration for a while.

Apart from that, the gameplay works, the music is pretty retro and the theme is absolutely there. Nothing new, though. Like I said, steer away from recreating Geometry Wars.

I'm no artist hence the artistic style I went for. Also while the survival gameplay element of Geometry Wars is there, the gameplay is significantly different because of the randomly generated elements (enemy characteristics, weapons and health packs) resulting in a completely different style of gameplay. I was never intending on recreating Geometry Wars as I had never heard of it and had to Google it now to comment.

Ok, the music is horrible - sorry :/

But besides that you got a fun little survival shooter. Some neat ideas in there. Some more polish and this could be a good game!

I liked this! But I found it a bit easy and repetitive..
