Nice simple game. Would be great to expand with some different enemies with different speeds, different shooting patterns etc.

I don't think I stand a chance against a fleet skilled enough to fly planes backwards :c

I really like the color scheme on this little entry. The puffs of orange smoke against the teal sky look great!

Keep it up, you'll get better the more games you make.

Controls could have used some work, adding some velocity and slide to the planes.

Enemy planes being able to move backwards after flying past you is totally cheating btw ! :)

The player feels very disempowered. Your plane moves slower then the enemies that home in on your position, so it is impossible to dodge. If the speed of the enemies started slower and ramped up, the game would have a much better feel and be more engaging.

You move a little too slow, it's a simple game, with a little more time and polish on graphics, sound and the balance of gameplay this could be a pretty fun thing to play.

Simple but fun. Diagonal movement is a bit weird though, I can't seem to move in all directions...?

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

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.
