LOVED IT, best game I've seen so far, especially loved the sound effects and the filter on the screen. Also liked the way the pew pew path wasn't fully straight.

Looks very good! Should be played in fullscreen mode though, it's frustrating when the mouse gets outside the window.

Well things went to hell really fast... but I love the challenge! Well done. I wish I could figure out how to get that retro screen like shader in my games.

Very good game. I wish the controls were different though, or at least customizable.

Solid game with a catchy soundtrack and a GREAT aesthetic. Only major complaint is that it gets really irritating having to click everytime you fire a shot - would be better if you could just hold down the button or autofire.

Really nice! I had lots of fun playing :D Wish the difficulty would increase over time, also would be nice if it had more screenshake, but might just be me loving screenshake xD Love the visuals and the sound, feels really good to play <3

Excellent. It played well, looked good, sounded good, fit the theme. The difficulty was low at first then ramped up fast. Great work.

Wow 30K+ on 1 place? I got barely 1000.
Very nice game. nice responsive controls.

Very good game, a pause by pressing esc or something would have been nice. In this kind of game, I prefer some pacing with level separation.

Really fun. I love the grenade, especially the sound effect, although that lazer phaser thing felt a bit useless. The difficulty started really low for ages but then suddenly went into hyper mode xD

Loved the song too

Dec 11, 2014 @ 10:27am

Great game awesome audio track! as for game design point of view i kinda felt having to keep pressing the mouse to shoot a bit annoying.

Nice! Gameplay is classic but efficient! I like the visuals, especially the little "old screen" effect.

Dec 11, 2014 @ 8:53pm

very polished and fun!. doesn't mess around with easy levels. like the screen shader.

I love the old screen effect, good graphics and pleasant music. I like your idea for the theme a lot :)

The challenge ramps up pretty nicely. I think doing A-D-1-2 for controls is a bit odd, since it makes 1 and 2 tricky to press.

Amazing entry! That was a lot of fun. Couldn't stop playing it :P
