Not bad, I gotta say though some of those graphics are killer.

A bit chaotic. The music got a bit repetitive. But otherwise, it's some solid fun. :)

Took me a minute to realize I was scrolling to the top-left, though.

Here my feedback:

- the music stops after some time (as I read the instructions)
- sometimes while I move to the right, my cell moves left until I stop pressing "D"
- nice game design tweak to make the health-cells shootable.
- I think you used collision boxes for collision detection and maybe, they are a bit too big.
- Nice controls respective shooting (flying bubbles, yeah :D)
- implementing a screen which explains controls and basic gameplay: great!

Wow, that gameplay was way harder then I thought it would be!
I really liked it :D The main character looks pretty cute too :P

Awesome :D

Pretty solid, but gets a little repetitive. I like that you had a detailed instruction screen and changed the goal occasionally (from survival to kill x number of enemies). Overall pretty fun.

I loved the soundtrack :DD I loved the player animation, very cartoonish :DD

Hmm, the enemies could've been a bit more lively, they just spammed from a few corners and it felt slightly repetitive, but the difficulty curve was nicely set for this game. Wasn't too hard at first but clearly started to had troubles a bit later and it was just massacre later D:

I had fun playing it, the soundtrack set the mood for the game! Nice interpretation of the theme as well(my game holds a similar idea, thanks for the comment on my timelapse video as well ^^)

Nice music! Good theme for a shooter. I like the instruction screen and the fact that you could access it in-game and then return to your game (a small but handy feature).

Great first entry! Music was awesome and controls felt fluid. It got to a point where there was a ton of stuff on the screen, and I wasn't quite sure what was good/bad! Otherwise, a solid, fun little entry. Thanks!

Interesting... although a little repetitive after awhile.

The music was ok, but it didn't really seem to fit the mood of the game.

Nice for a first game ... I like that the speed of the bullets depends on the distance between cursor and player. But why no sounds for destroying enemies? Generally, there's a lot of feedback stuff missing.

A bit confusing at first, but still a very nice game.

Interesting game... wish I had a clue what was going on. Music was repetitive, but not too bad. Art/style was good.

Pretty good. The controls could use some fine-tuning.

Pretty good, I don't know why but it kind of reminds me of earthworm jim

Nick, I have something to tell you.

I scanned my computer yesterday and found 33 files infected with Paramite A. You might have become infected from playing my game.

I'm really sorry about this.
