Couldn't get past the lvl6, after many retries. Would have keep going but it's a bit frustrating to have to get past all the waves every time.

It was quite fun anyway.

Reminded me of on mario game I used to play, also really liked the smoothness of controls. But game gets really hard after 4th level.

Stuck on level 6

I didn't expect to enjoy this game. First of all, it was compressed as rar, which is just annoying. And the implementation seemed to be very basic. But once I started playing it, I enjoyed it quite a lot, and restarted over and over again to try to get further into the game. So, good job after all!

@Martin Vilcans Okay, I will add a .zip file to the itch.io page. Thanks for pointing that out.

Nice game but i feel with such strong opponents you could add life system. Restaring from level makes it challenging if anyone wants to participate in repetitive challenge.

Lacks music, but overall it was fun, controls feel good and it's not too hard (well that should be a con for me :P)

Simple but fun game. Well done :)

That was actually pretty fun. The X-Button is bit troublesome on a QWERTZ keyboard, but then again who uses these. Other than that solid controls.

A cool little game, remins me of Super Crate Box in a way.
It's a bit hard too :D
I guess if the platforms were one-way it'd help the controls a bit.
Anyway, you've got a new basis to experiment with more guns, explosions and so on!
