I enjoyed everything about this game, honestly. It was pretty, fun, and had some awesome music and character designs. It felt a bit cramped, but that's not a bad thing. I feel it helped to reinforce a very tense mood, which felt really good

This is really great! Fantastic art style and animations and a really good use of the theme. Having the Sea King come out like that really makes you feel like you are confined and fighting for your life! The music fits perfectly as well! My only gripe is that I think one hit and you die is too little, I would have enjoyed it a bit more if it took 3 hits to die. Otherwise, amazing work you guys!

Very good game! I had a lot of fun playing it. The graphics and the animation are amazing, and the bosses are awesome. I'd love a continue button though! :D

Running on walls is very fun. (I found that the player character never be killed while he doesn't move.)

Loved every detail about this game. Really well done animations and character design, the sounds are amazing as well and the music is great! I think it needed a bit more feedback for the hits, I wasn't sure when I was hitting an enemy or not. Really beautiful game, nice job!

Woah! Great visuals and animation, it got a bit glitch when I was trying to move up and down on the left wall, it kept disconnecting me but that boss though, man!

Awesome design and animations, control scheme is also interesting, great work !
The only thing that I think was lacking is that there is no feedback when shooting the boss so we are not sure if we are hurting it or not.

Woah, this was a pretty game. Animations were also fantastic. Nice take on the theme, well done!

Extremely good-looking game! The gameplay is really solid, too! I managed to get past the first boss, but beyond that, the game became a little too hectic for me. Great concept, great implementation, but I do feel the difficulty could ramp up a little more gently.

This game looks really good, even for a Jam entry, where expectactions are usually a bit higher. This game is really fun, but also a bit hard. I'm not a big fan of the bullet-hell-style gameplay beginning with level 2, but that's just me. Good job!

Nice job on this! The graphics were surprisingly well polished. The movement was also intuitive and simple to pick up and understand. I've seen a couple of other entries that share a similar approach to being able to walk around the borders and some of them become difficult to control when inverted.

I also liked that you could change your direction mid-air. That wasn't something I expected and felt like a very valuable addition to the game.

After a couple of tries I got past the first phase of the sea king, but didn't survive much longer past that.

It seems simple, but you guys did a good job creating a nice polished experience that is more difficult than it seems to be at first.

Looks good, his facial expression while shooting is funny :) the death sound of the enemies was funny too but a bit repetitive after my 5th try. And I couldn't seem to find out what to do with the Sea King, shooting didn't do anything :/ But still a cool game :)

Very nice gfx. Models and animations, and all in 3D. Amazing!

That was a very nice game! Some improvements, if I may:
- The big snake that comes from the walls. There's no way of knowing if you're damaging it or not. It would be nice if the snake flashed when you're damaging it.
- Sometimes, when I'm trying to avoid bullets, I "touch" the sidewalls and the player changes orientation and the controls get all messed up cause I wasn't expecting it. Perhaps make the hitbox with the walls smaller, i dunno.

Great job anyways, I really like the animations and the cell shading art style! Awesome!

Great game loved the concept of the game. like how the it gets progressively difficult. could not pass the second dragon looking character. Loved the visuals and the audio. Great entry good job.

Nice game ! The chara design is really good and I also love the little animations you've made for the main character. It maybe lacks a bit of feedbacks when you hit the sea king.

This was great, just great! Amazing charadesign and animation, simple but addictive shmup gameplay (maybe too simple ? I feel a lot of potential in the gamedesign but it seems a bit underexploited), I simply loved it. It's amazing how polished your game is!
