Pewpewpew! Pretty fun, I especially like the lassoing aspect. I also love the music once it gets started.

***I'm posting this on all non-browser games I bring up in an attempt to encourage folks to make browser games next time around. Do not take it personally.***

When hundreds of people make non-browser games, that means that, to play all of the entries, I would need to download hundreds of games to my computer. I typically use OS X, so Windows-only entries are particularly inconvenient.

Please consider making a browser game next time.

Nice - liked this one a lot. Cool sounds and music. Would be cool to have the other buildings all do stuff (probably in the plans - or maybe I missed that?).

I initially got an error about not having d3dx9_41.dll on my computer (Win7). I assumed that was DirectX, so I went and installed the latest version, and it worked! Just warning you that you might want to mention the requirement. Neat game though!

Fun! Couldn't figure out how to drop bad guys off at the sheriff's...oh well, shooting them was great fun :D Thanks!

@LukeRissacher Yeah that was totally the idea - buy items from the shop, etc. Ran out of time for that however.

:C Unfortunately I cannot play this on my mac.

Good luck for this Ludum Dare though! I hope whatever happens you're happy with your game!

It took me a couple tries to get the hang of it but, when I did, it became quite fun! The game is responsive and dynamic. I also really liked the sounds.

It would be nice if there was a way to dodge the bullets, like jumping. Also, the spinning animation made me bit dizzy -- maybe fix the position of the player on the screen?

@caranha Thanks for playing!

I agree with both criticisms. The camera is very lazy, it likely needs tightening a tad to keep track of the player better.

Nice music too.

Fun entry, hard a hard time figuring out who was an enemy. Nice look to the game.
