Not sure how to get more bullets, if possible. Controls are constrained to one axis at a time as well.

got to a little over a thousand score. I rationed my bullets pretty carefully, but eventually it becomes impossible to get more bullets. Perhaps you should make bullet spawns randomly appear after a while. While bullets should be an important resource, the more important one should be your hp. I often had lots of hp but no bullets. Even something like a very short-range melee attack where I could get more bullets if I needed when I desperate would've greatly added to this game. Background music was effective, sound effects were gratifying without being annoying. Gameplay was actually pretty engaging, if it only had more polish, like you say, would've been a pretty enjoyable entry. As it is, after playing two rounds, there's really no more enjoyment to be had.

Not bad, but not enough bullet pickups and the movement gets laggy after some time. Also some enemies wont move if too many are on the screen.

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.
