I found a small bug. When it tells you to "GO TO THE EXIT", don't collect any more energy orbs or you won't be able to exit the room. Sorry 'bout that.

Thanks for playing.

I liked the music and gameplay mechanic, but I quit when I got to the room with a ton of shooting enemies in it, just too hard for me. Overall a really solid game, great job!

Thanks for giving it a try! That is actually the last room before the ending. Try taking out the the enemies that pull you in towards them first thing, then concentrate on the enemies that shoot.

I beat your game. I fits with the theme. Nice "singularity" xD

Really interesting sort of level up mechanic (the shrinking). Pretty fun. The fact that you can't shoot and move made things really interesting. Nice choice there I think. Graphics were actually pretty well done. Audio was nice aswell.

I think it would have been cool if you would have done the shrinking a bit differently. More of a metroidvania style I think would have cooler.

Very complete! I enjoyed the narrative and the writing style although I didn't quite understand what exactly happened at the very ending... it was still awesome though.

Graphics, music and sound were good- I really appreciate the friction in the player's actions! Very pretty pixel art and design. The chunky aural feedback from shooting a monster, the satisfying way right click draws in a monster and then the camera shake- it's all very lovingly crafted and it shows. The lofi sound effects synergize very well with the crunchy gameplay. It's always a pleasure to see such energetic friction in a game!

Can't wait to see more from you! :)

I really enjoyed this game, the story seemed intriguing and the game was fun to play too! I thought the music set the tone nicely and the graphics were nice and simple - my only gripe is that I felt the difficulty ramp in the second world was massive as compared to the first. Still, keep up the good work!

At first I thought I had 0 health because it was just a string of 'o's but after getting hit a few times it became clear those were circles indicating hits you can take! Maybe they could look more like lives.

In any case, it was a fun game about securing tenure. Gameplay was solid if a bit repetitive, and the enemies had some interesting variation! Risking the absorption of energy and the possibility of merely bringing them closer to you when they recovered was a really cool mechanic. Nicely done!

Awesome game! The only thing I would change is the health indicator.

Liked the game, I played on a mac with the touchpad, it is hard to use the right click to collect the energy.

Some cool mechanics, and nice audio!
