Very fun! The special weapons were really frustrating though, Would have been nice if they were bound to a different key then your main attack. I found myself spamming through them to get back to the normal attack (Especially the mines).

Yes, I know, It was a mess the weapon system. The only way to change weapons manually is by clicking on the top bar, but that is kind of useless.

*However, you also can choose not to get the special weapons.

Enjoyable music and audio feel, the game made me smile. The bombs also felt powerful. One minor thing that would make it even better would be if the bombs made some sort of explosion sprite (or at least some sort of effect) when they kill a summons. This might also help differentiate between the normal weapon and more advanced weapons.

The main problem I saw, which also got me killed multiple times, was that sometimes the ship randomly stops firing. It's not overheated (I got the whistle noise when I overheated, and I'm pretty sure I had an empty meter in this case), and I had ammo (or an infinite weapon)...but mouse clicks no longer register.

A simple game but executed well, nicely polished for the time limit.

Wow, this is a slick-looking game!

Nice graphics. I like the screen layout and general idea. I think it has potential. I would recommend working on the "jucyness". Some particle effects for the ship breaking into waves, air bubbles under water, enemies dropping dead instead of disappearing and so on would go a long way. Keep up the good work!

It's good well polished game with nice visuals and audio, but I wish there was something more to the mechanics.

This is really fun :)
The mines are a bit annoying though...

challenging but when you play for a long time, it becomes repetitive

One of the best entries so far.

What I liked most about it was the art - It got me so in the mood!

It's really addictive because it gets challenging and you really want to see what the other power-ups do.

The theme music kind of reminds me of Terminator. Is there a way to switch weapons? I was doing pretty good until I got the mines and then got murdered.

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 ( 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.
