The game does not run for me. I get http://i.imgur.com/SkIFM.png twice, then http://i.imgur.com/ompmc.png, then the game just closes. Using Win7 64-bit, dual core 2.8 ghz, 4 GB RAM, NVIDIA Quadro FX 770M.

A bit basic, but it works. However, it felt like I couldn't kill the spiked ball enemies, and it seemed almost impossible to dodge all of the bullets they were shooting.

The game doesn't work for me. The music started to play, but the game crashed with this exception:

System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft\LD23\Models\Player2.mdl' is denied.

Hint: make your game a standalone download, not requiring to be installed.

Quite simple, but it worked, I wasnt entirely sure what was happening though. well done though :)

I think the powerups are really small, making it hard to see the icons on them, and there are some missing sound effects (like hitting and killing enemies) but it's a nice simple game.

Pretty cool, the number of bullets was absurd but that's what made it great. Good job.

I tried to install the game three times, but it did not show up in the directory it said it was going to go (weird). I speak a little German, and the installer didn't seem to report any errors. The stand-alone version worked; I'd avoid installers if possible for this competition. The 3D graphics are cool. The game was a little hard to play, and it wasn't at first clear that I'd killed anything, or what was hurting me. The options to move seemed very constrained by the square (I guess that was the theme, though). The music is very nice, and I like the powerups.

An installer... and it's in German? :-/
It could have been asking me to agree to installing viruses for all I know. Also, it should definitely not be trying to write data into its own directory, especially since the default installation path is administrator-only.

The effects were decent, but trouble came with the exploding fire shots. My GPU is pretty good and it couldn't handle it. There's no limit on how fast you can fire, either, adding to the slowdown. The powerups were too small to differentiate.

493,390 pts. I dunno if that's good?

Good game, but the fire effects killed my frame rate, and I have an Alienware! I like how the menus are built around the game mechanic, and the music was pretty cool. I wish the bullets and powerups didn't go through the floor though, and it could've used some more sounds.

Fun game. Crazy number of bullets. Plays well. Well done.

Cute menus and lots of bullets and powerups which was nice. The sound effects and music were decent. I also got massive slowdown and wasn't sure if it was deliberate or not! I wished it was at times to give me a better chance of dodging. I only have manged to get 6th in the high score table so far.

It really didn't feel like dodging was doable with the crazy bullet density/player size and jumping didn't seem useful, but I could easily see the game working well if, at least early on, dodging bullets was way more manageable.

The background was cool! What's going on there?

I can't play your game because I don't have Windows. Perhaps another member of my team will find and rate your game.

Didn't get it working on Linux.

Needs way more manoeuvrability if you're gonna be chucking that many bullets at me, also feels really hard to aim with the mouse, particularly without autofire.

Heh yeah ran into some of the same problems as others. Game ran smooth as butter until the explosions. I also felt the tank was a little bit too big for how small and close together the bullets were. Still a pretty fun game.
