The game is quite simple, it's up to you to understand it.

In this game, less is more, in terms of shooting. This is a minimalist platform-shooter.

I added a mouse version that I did after the deadline, it replaces the arrows controls with mouse+WASD, much more enjoyable.

I came here to check out my "Less is More" competition, and am I shocked and appalled to find such a nice game! :) Especially like the sound effects and weaponry diversity.

Oh man, I loved this from the moment the first triangle filled my screen. Music and design is brilliant, and gameplay encompasses a brilliant take on the minimalist theme! Excellent work!

Couldn't really work out what the goal was ... and yet I feel compelled to keep playing. So, success, I think?

Brilliant concept! I liked that you get to try out a weapon and then have to kill similarly armed character. Enemies shooting after their defeat is pretty brutal, I think 200-ish is the highest score I've got.

That's a great game, I love the mood created by the graphisms and the triangle shots !
But I found that this sfxr became annoying over the time :/

Nice visuals! You should to open your window with the WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW style so that we can still move it around. I think the cursor icon was a bit large and distracting, blocking what I am trying to aim at. Really awesome start up sequence. Gameplay was pretty fun, would be cool if there was more of a goal.

I'm in awe. :D The concept is great, and everything is so polished that it could be a multi-month game. Nice one!

I like it, but i dont really get it. I shoot the enemies and they dissapear yet can still kill me. I go through the portal and they phaze back in and i kill them again and so on and so forth. Then the game just ends suddenly.

Nice style and atmosphere. Like the bass guitar type noises when you shoot and the BG music.

"In this game, less is more, in terms of shooting. This is a minimalist platform-shooter. " Enough said. I love everything about this game, 5/5 or me :)

Brilliant. That moment when u realize the nature of the game. Can we actually classify opponents into three categories? AI, others and self? Superb aesthetics as well.

The concept is good and the graphics are really nice, It's pretty stylish game... but the mapping on a french keyboard are very boring. Why don't use arrow key and up for jump, combined to mouse for shoot?

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.
