It's a buggy piece of crap, but whatever!

The game mechanics themselves are interesting, but the game was too frustratingly difficult to be considered fun. I guess it kind of fits the theme. The graphic style was actually pretty cool. With a bit more effort, this game could have been a great success.

The intro and instructions come up, but afterward it stays as a black screen indefinitely (with "orb 0/2" being drawn happily at the corner still).

libgcc_s_dw-1.dll not found. Also antivirus screams and warns and wants to run it in sandbox mode

Also recieving the same error about libgcc. I imagine it's much like the issues I was having with the visual studio redistributable, where the runtime DLL wasn't being compiled into the program, and instead just assumed to be on the system... required compiling it with specific linker flags to fix.

I had to hunt for 2 DLLs to run the game (libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll and libstdc++-6.dll). My antivirus didn't warn about it, and since the source code code is included, I don't think that it is malicious.
Unfortunately the game is buggy and the animations are weird. There is no sound or music. I was unable to complete the game, so I cannot comment on the ending.

Cannot play or rate - missing libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll
Please include all libraries necessary to run the game next time.

Missing dll too. I got libgcc from here: http://pt.sourceforge.jp/projects/sfnet_openmarias/downloads/libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll/. And then libstdc++ from here: http://code.google.com/p/wtfu/downloads/detail?name=libstdc%2B%2B-6.dll&can=2&q=. And it worked :) (in sandboxed mode, Avast doesn't like all this)

So you should package those two dlls, or maybe check this post on stackoverflow to remove the need: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4702732/the-program-cant-start-because-libgcc-s-dw2-1-dll-is-missing.

Indeed, it's buggy, but I wouldn't say it's crap. I agree with Aslai that you could have done something really interesting with a bit more polish. The enemies are too fast, the camera rotation is awkward, and the most annoying of all: you can outrun the camera which removes all chance to see the enemies coming. Oh and there's no audio (at least for me). All this prevented me from finishing the game.

I think the camera is the biggest issue here - just keep the camera centered on the player instead of a "lazy camera".
