I like the work on the sprites.
The concept is simple but effective. Maybe some sound would make it even better !

Really cool game! There is no objective, and seems to be endless, but it just gets too hard shoot the sharks, since they increase in number fast!

Hi there. Without being able to move around and kite them, this is all over on first wave. Be nice to have some sounds/background. Like the action of the gun and explosion, movement inwards also nice. Good job so far!

Is it possible to survive more than 10-12 seconds? Cool looking turret!

little too hard

So f*ckin hard. One thing learned, is that you have no chances to survive a sharks-on-wheels apocalypse. Even if you are a minigun.. :P

Quite hard, but simple and neat.

Fun concept. Extremely difficult :P .

The raycasting would be nicer if it cast towards the position of the mouse to a distance of infinity (or at least enough to go off the edge of the screen) rather than only shooting to the position of the mouse.

Otherwise, fun entry. Nicely done.

super hard, definitely need to slow down the enemies a bit. took me a bit to realize it's shooting at my cursor, not just the direction the gun is pointing.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. 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 ( 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.
