I found some serious bugs like random restarting, but i don't know how to fix it, sorry :c

I like the aesthetic - though I'm not a huge fan of the player movement. I found the game quite challenging. Good work!

Fun game, but very hard to aim. Could you implement the mouse for aiming? This could improve the aiming.

It's a neat game, but very difficult. I could never do well enough buy a single turret! Maybe lower the difficulty a little bit? Or maybe I'm just bad at the game. But good job, it was still fun to play!

Buggy, but fun. Would feel better if it was easier to stay at a diagonal when not moving. And if it didn't have the random restarts.

I like hard games and games trolling the player :)
Unfortunately, I think you lack lisibility, the player ship is small and with all the particles around him, you get lost way too easily

Very solid spriting. The game is very difficult I found but the mechanics are interesting and solid. I wish I could have got further into it to see some more of them in effect.

Great entry! Could see this being very fun with multiplayer!

Really good graphics. It's hard to aim with the ship, and I couldn't survive very much. Maybe using the control scheme from Asteroids where you rotate with the left and right and go forward with the up key could improve it.

So, very pleasant and fun !
Your ship must be better highlighted compared to the foes, It will be better :p

There is bug that makes the game randomly restart!
Btw Nice audio, great and minimal graphic and enjoyable gameplay! I think that the ship is a little too small, but this isn't really a problem.. Well done!

Great idea, great style. I liked the bug which randomly spawns hundreds of coins :-) I think the random restarting only happens after dying once so restarting the whole game helped me there.
It still was quite hard. Maybe analog shooting/mouse aiming would help. Loved it anyway!

Fun game but WAY too difficult. I never were able to gain 50 gold by myself.
The only times it happens it was thanks to a bug spawning tons of gold. And even in this situation It tooks so much time to grab the coins AND reach the construction point than I died 3 seconds after seeing my turret...
The ships being small is not a problem, but the particles are too big and it makes the game unclear.
Despite all of this I like the game, and tried it many time (8-10) before giving up.

Pretty much what everybody else said - visually very well made and the mechanics seem to work well (except the bugs), bug wayy too hard. Wasn't able to build a turret, even when I managed to destroy a few enemies it was a challenge to even collect the coins without randomly hitting an enemy and dying.
I imagine this is due to the 48h time limit though. As the developer and basically only playtester available you often get very good at your own game without really noticing, so that might be such a case. Kind of hard to avoid in these game jams, but maybe you'll make sure to keep your games somewhat easier in the future. :)

nice game, i enjoyed it, good controls and graphics.
I think it is hard because the ship is very petit and that makes it hard for a schmup.
nice job!

Wow this game is hard!
Nice mechanics tough, liked it very much.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline.

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.
