Very nice. I like that there are multiple songs to listen to, and the gameplay is frantic and makes good use of the theme.

Good work!

Well done, guys. The multiple weapons and shifting terrain prevented the experience from getting monotonous. The different soundtracks were a pleasant surprise, too!

This is great! A really solid little game. I love the music and sound effects, and the level generating as you play was awesome. Good job!

Nice game. Well polished and fun.
I'm not used to that kind of game (i'm bad at it :)) but i feel that this one can be fun and challenging.
I like the way feedbacks of dangers arrival are made and allow you to escape from.

Maybe it's too much punitive to let the player gets instant kill by enemis because early game can be full of dangers.

I don't get what are the green smoke look alike that appears and kill me.

Love the diversity of the game, like the changing lava spots and the two different soundtracks. Really adds up to the replay value as every run feels different!
Also liked the design of the blobs, which don't appear very dangerous at first, but will crowd the screen in no time and obstruct your bullets' reach.
Very nifty

Fantastic gameplay, it's very well designed. And the art is very nice too. I love this game, congratulations!

Que el ataque cuerpo a cuerpo te desplace da pie a situaciones un poco injustas.

La paleta de colores es muy apropiada, aunque los enemigos verdes no parecen tan mortales como resultan ser.

En general el juego tiene un buen ritmo, y la respuesta es buena (en cuanto a saber cuándo te han dado, la reacción al disparar y atacar, etc.).

¡Buen trabajo!

Polished graphics, nice sounds, and really, really addicting
I love the everchanging levelmap and the arsenal you can use
I would we awesome if the score also tracked the amount of enemies you killed on each game ^^

Very addictive, I like the way the map changes every time. Is very dinamic and frenetic. Congratulations, a great entry!

Nice game but pretty difficult right away. Would great to implement some levels of hardness) But I'm not the most expirienced player though))

Wow, fantastic game! Nothing to fault - though, I knew there was an option to swap weapons but never was able to do it, or thought it would be a good idea: I think that's an unnecessary feature that could be dropped to make the game more "pure".

The ground spawning/changing feature is brilliant - really added a lot to the game and made each change exciting. Tune was awesome too - fantastic effort for 48 hours!

The movements seemed to be a bit glitchy and the character slided a bit. Other than that a pretty great game!

Cool game, very fast-paced. The only thing I did not like is the killer walls that appear form nowhere.

Very nice entry. ;) I love the art, how levels change and how polished this game is.

Really intense action you have there. But it gets really tough really quickly. I liked how there were nice indicators for everything and nothing instantly killed me upon spawning. (Unlike in other games of this type I've played.)

Best was 1:22

Really nice little game. Great music and gameplay + well stylized.

Would love to see global high scores :)

Dec 14, 2014 @ 4:42pm

Solid entry, nice flow and super difficult! I wished the transformation of the ground is announced a little bit earlier :D

We've just updated the game with global highscores (yeah!!), two player coop and controller support, check it out!

Great game. It controls well, and it feels quite polished. I really like the changing environment too. I made a similar game called Enter the Murderdome:

I played this one quite a bit. I also played the 2-player coop version as well (very nice). I really like how the board changes dynamically right under your feet. It adds a nice challenge. Well done!
