Reminds me of smash TV. Nice graphic effects. Quite enjoyable.

I really liked the lo-fi models and textures, almost looks like something from the mid-late 90's. Only issue I see is the enemies spawning near you while you are kiting the hoard and when you respawn. Perhaps it would have worked better if it spawned you as far away from them as possible.

Great little Robotron game, has a few issues, but really fun overall!

Decent little games, reminds me a ton of Smash TV. I like the intro animation with the door opening, and overall I think it looks pretty good. I did have a problem seeing the player though. They should be larger, or at least a different colour to stand out from the crowd. Congrats on the game!

Really challenging and fun. Maybe too challenging at some parts, but eh who am I, you know? Graphics were sweet too.

Similar to Crimson Land. Healt bar would be better than dying and respawning. Now it's too hard.
But well done.

A good prototype. Coop is now in the trend. It is necessary to complete the project under the console or Big picture.

The graphics are nice, but I have issues seeing the player at times.

Nice game, similar to Smash TV or a single-screen Gauntlet.

Dec 9, 2014 @ 7:30am

One of the most fun games I've played in the jam so far. There are a few small issues (like keeping power-ups after you die, being able to be killed while transitioning between levels, and enemies spawning directly on top of you without warning), but they don't stop the game from being enjoyable. The sound is a bit loud, but fits very well and helps give the game a tense, upbeat feeling.

I liked the graphics effects. Had a pretty good time playing this.

Nice graphics and sound. The game did not reset correctly when I died though I needed to restart the game.

I can't fire :/ Will vote later !

Not bad at all! Great juice, despite the sound making my ears bleed. Had to turn that down. Very stylish. I could hardly ever get any weapons because the hordes were just too much - I'm guessing you don't have the spawns keyed to number of players? You should do that :)

Buggy though, I ended up playing the game on the title screen while pressing play and then died before anything spawned :)

Fun oldie. Does the multiplayer controls use controllers?

Great visuals and audio. I love the twinstick style genre. A few bugs and its general hardcore difficulty keep it from being stellar. I'm excited to see this polished up into the gem it will be :D

first of all, thanks for your feedback and kind words, and second, I apologize for all the bugs you found, simply, we haven't enough time to fix'em all before commit. and yes you can use controllers but a little bug makes you need 4 controllers even the first player don't use it. We'll let you know when all the typos wi'll be fixed

Amazing game, really fun, nice visuals, state of the art music. Has all the late 90's feel in it, it's like playing on my old psx.

The yee explosion moment was epic.

Simple, and fun. A bit too difficult for someone like me after a while, but I had fun nevertheless! =)

Cool game! Great graphics and music! Love it! I would add a health rather than the die-by-one-touch. Good work!!!

Stunning graphics. Maybe a little bit too many enemies

This gun makes a statement every time you fire it, haha! Nice game. I'm a sucker for Twinstick-like games. By coincidence, my main project outside of ludum dare is somewhat like this! But that is a "hush-hush-secret-hush" thing still. Good job man!

nice overall game, sometimes it's hard to figure out where the player character is.

This was really cool! So much stuff in here for a jam entry. Like others have said, the late-90s aesthetic is great and that opening sequence is awesome :)

Good take on the old skool Robotron idea. Well done on making it local multiplayer.

Loved the intensity of this game, it was challenging to keep up with the randomness of the levels. A suggestion I would have for a post-jam version is using "object pooling" to manage a set of exploding enemies, so you don't get performance hitches at runtime from instantiating them.

Omiya Games says ...
Dec 17, 2014 @ 4:24am

That was adorable. Even though the song was really annoying. I kind of wanted camera controls to figure out which tree was green, and which wasn't.

Darn commented in the wrong game again. I did play DoomZone, and to be quite frank, I was cursing at the graphics. Your player looks exactly the same as the enemies, so I couldn't tell where I was, or where I spawned when I died. I also didn't like the fact that the default bullets were too small.
