All very well and good, but elements of the game were not all in one screen (they came from outside/appeared)

Things do get pretty crazy, though I think maybe a little bit too fast. Games like these end when we lose control and I hardly hit 10000 points before then.

But I suppose that's what practice is for. Mechanics are pretty solid!

Super fun :)
I think it lacks precise collision detection sometimes but the speed of the game is just right!

Interesting take on asteroids. I like how hectic it gets towards the end.

That's a crazy little game! Nice balance, without ever getting boring.

Cool little game - the smaller hitbox was unclear, and it would be nice to see some effect when you're hit, and possibly a bit of momentum on the ship to add a bit of juice.

Reminds me of that Galaxian (or was it Galaga?) version on Wii. Nice :)

Fun game, and extremely difficult. I enjoy that creation animation on the polygons, nice touch then just having them appear! Good job.

Works pretty well. I just thought that the music tempo doesn't match the game speed. Keep going :)

Nice game.
I've got 29700!
It became hard really quickly.
Glad to see I'm not the only one to make a "shoot and avoid" game ^^.

simple, but challenging shooter

Dec 8, 2014 @ 5:50pm

Surely you mean... Bullet Hellements??

Awesome game, best so far was 41400, but I may come back to it and try and top that.

Movement and shooting both feel great, only taking damage felt like it was missing a little bit of feedback. Liked the enemies shrinking to represent damage (instead of floaty healing bars or something).

Nice arcade shooter! I like the cartoonish style! Would've been good with a larger field to fight on. Thanks for the game and good luck! :)

It was exciting to play this. I felt good when I dodged stuff and stayed alive even when there was tons of danger on the screen. The music was simple but effective. I liked the little tutorial intro to re-start the game. It was pretty fun.

Well done ... you may want to build to the frenzy ... start out simple and the go crazy with enemies ... otherwise ... good job.

Hi there. Needs fullscreen or capture mouse, pretty unplayable without... Is very manic, nice lot of objects moving around. The 8-bit sound was nice, bit incongruous with the smoothly rounded sprites tho.

Game gets hectic very fast! I liked it though I wish use of the theme was more creative. Good job!

Pretty hard on a touchpad, only managed to get 18800 points. Simple but well executed, good job!

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
