This game was very fun, though stressful. I love the concept, though managing all 3 ships is quite difficult

Fun little game, needs a little more, a little featureless.

Aw that was so hard! :D
Cool idea, it's not only an entire game on one screen, it's three games at the same time! Cool interpretation of the theme.

It was so hard, many things parallel. Fits the theme well!

Very nice idea but quite hard to manage both of them. ^^

A very interesting concept, and one I would like to see more of in a more polished form.

Personally I did have issues with how hard it is to keep your three ships alive compared to just keeping one alive, leaving me playing through the game with just a single ship. There's some possible changes you could experiment with here, such as having the ships move together, or maybe reduced spawning on the active layer.

The other issue I had was how tricky switching between ships was using a keyboard. Since there's only three ships, the ability to cycle through them, perhaps with Q and E, would be a lot easier than having to remember and push three seperate hotkeys.

Apart from those issues, I thought this was a very fun game!

I like the idea and also the graphical effects (flashing of the ships when you are close to dying). However, once you're down to one ship it becomes way too easy. I think it would be better if there were fewer enemies, but you died as soon as any one of your ships is destroyed.

Cool idea - I found it difficult to manage so many ships and so many enemies coming at them.

Some good potential here, I would have liked to have seen a little more polish regarding feedback when my ships are getting hit or when they are hitting the enemy.

This needs a multiplayer option, though I think that would defeat your original intent.

Oh man, that's hard. Great interpretation of the theme!

I love this idea! However, there doesn't seem to be a downside to letting two of your ships die (as it's hard to focus on them all at once). Controller support is awesome though! I'd love to play a more refined version.

Clever take on the color-switching mechanic. Pretty difficult having to juggle 3 ships. Nice job!

Cool shooter, with a nice twist. You can exploit the enemy spawning system by centering yourself at the bottom (there's a spot where you can shoot at all spawn points just by rotating, making the game very easy).
I'd like to see it when it's polished up!

Fun and hard game, managing all three ships at once it though.

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 (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.
