An okay game. Good gameplay but a bit repetitive, I wish there was more content. Great music though!

Great audio, repetitive gameplay, seems to have no difficulty changes so it just goes on forever. With some tweeks it could be an ok game.

I found the audio a tad grating, and there needed to be more content, but what you had ran quite smoothly! A hitpoints indicator would have been nice to have, though.

Game play got stale quickly but give you props for working a potato into the game.

Well, that's very simple and becomes repetitive quickly.

Can not be emulated properly under Linux using Wine 1.2.3.

Music was ok, but as the others said, gameplay was a bit repetitive.

The enemy bounding box is a bit too big. I also had a bug if I try to click on restart after death and it seems that the aiming work only if I aim top or down. Othewise there's a difference of several degrees which make the shooting difficult.

I was expecting the difficulty to increase as I played the game. Unfortunately by a score of 100,000 it was the same :P try increasing difficulty over time next LD.

So, the "Web" version is still only available for Windows?

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.
