Pretty polished game, however my cursor started off out of the screen area and I didn't know what to do for a few second.

The movement was really snappy and quick, I finished the game without firing once after the first level as the enemy shots were slow enough I could dodge them

Graphics are pretty polished and sweet, controls are well, the gameplays is simple but works pretty good.
Maybe enemies could have been a more bit difficult, in fact you can shoot all of them without being in range.
By the way, good job.

The game is pretty good. The levels are well designed and the graphics are very pretty. A couple of things that could have been better:

The shooting should have been automatic. Clicking a lot really fast is a little uncomfortable. This is also a problem because the enemies are shooting really fast, which gives them an unfair advantage.

The shooting sound seems to playing constantly, and the sounds overlap each other in a very noisy way.

That said, the game is overall very good.

Cool game, but I don't know if it's just because I've 16:10 screen but enemies couldn't see me eve tho I saw them, so it was really easy to kill them and peacefully walk through. Anyway nice game!

Nice minimal art style. I like the unique look of the ships, and the target graphic is great! It's a nicely paced little shooter.

Levels were designed well. Passing by enemies was also quite a challenge at the start, which I liked. A problem that I noticed is that my cursor can move off screen to the left and to the bottom a bit further than the actual screen boundary.

It hanged when I got to the end of lvl1, right when I came to what I guess is the end of that level. :)
Nice to get the good old aim a trying. Nice and simple!

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
