I really enjoyed this one. The graphics were simple, but you gave a lot of information, with the health bars - something a lot of games miss out on. It would have been nice to know how long some of the attack-based upgrades lasted, and the time in which I got overwhelmed felt a little rushed, but it was fun. Had I been a bit more intelligent each time with my aiming, I would have done better. Good pace, otherwise.

Ok shooter. Maybe it would be more intense if enemies would take a bit less hits and be faster.

This is fun. The hand drawn art is pretty entertaining. I barely noticed the transition from 4 to 60 guys on the screen but I wasn't worried because I kept finding grenades. I wish there was a high score.

Very hard game, but it's oddly addicting.
I couldn't kill the big guy. x.x

An exciting game experience, easy and clear mechanism; the difficulty curve is a bit weird, it seems the game suddenly become very difficult, and I dont feel my hero enhanced a lot accordingly. When I finally got killed, I did not see a score screen or game over screen, is that intended or a bug?

It is a nice game, maybe a bit of sound fx or variation in enemies would have helped, I also liked the textures as they looked hand drawn and I like that kind of stuff. Goodjob!

Hi there. Very competent, nice balance of powerups, felt generous without being easy. Really, really missed sound though.

haha, nice graphics! :D
However the gameplay is really fun! I like how it eventually throws insane amount of enemies on me)

Nothing is like shooting zombies to have fun.

Oof, the difficulty curve is bananas in this game. Went from being an easy little shooter to a flood of dancing enemy sprites in seconds. I had fun playing though, and tried my best to grenade the big guy when he came on screen (I was eaten by the horde when he had a sliver of health left D:)

I like the different weapons and powerups, like the bigger bullet that explodes and spread shot especially. I also like that there is a progression to the monsters, although they move a bit slow. It seems more about learning to deal with a large number though, rather than their speed. I also like their health meters, and the feedback that the game gives you overall is pretty good. Everything made sense intuitively.

Good Job! ;)
