What, that's a very nice entry. I totally love the mood of the game, quite sad and depressing. It reminds me of Diablo I, and the music is just outstanding. The game ending added an extra layer to this incredible mood too.

Gameplay, it's fun to play and midly challenging. I like how many levels, ennemies, and bosses you put in there. The "spike" booby trap is very clever (often, I'll kill all enemies on a floor, just to be wiped but one of these spiked balls). My only complaint is that the hero base shot is to slow (rapid fire is great though), and that you can combine Triple shot and rapid fire ;)!

Undeads want pie too!

Decent game, not sure if intended but you could shoot from multiple sides at once.

@negativice: Thanks for the feedback! There are checks in place to ensure you aren't shooting from multiple sides at once. You could shoot between all them really fast, but only one direction will fire at a time. Depending on how accurate your keyboard is and the disparity between frames, it might appear as though they are firing at the same time. Thanks again!

I like the very unique game concept very much... its not my fav in artwork, but the gameplay is neat.

That's a very nice game. I really loved the feel of the game. I felt the need to get my PIE back! And that I did. Overall the game was fun to play and the audio went very well with the game. Keep it up!

Even though the intro is pretty slow, it helps set the mood. Gameplay, sound and graphics remind me of old Atari games, it's a nice revival.

Now I want some pie...

You really need to add animations, even simpliest ones would do a huge difference. And make proper z-order of the objects on stage.

Fun game, really enjoyed this! Am I the only one getting Binding of Isaac vibes here?

But, I was a bit disappointed when I realized that the upgrades don't stack :(

So you made this all by yourself? impressing! Yeah as i read in the comments, a Diablo1 like feeling was there.
I like that kind of games.

Cool art style though wish the player was animated, would've helped a lot.

Was it Gaben on 8th level? Wow, how fat you are on steam sales...

Not bad overall. The firing sound seems to be broken, or at least is sounds weird. Maybe it's only on my end... Nice, clean, main menu!

@Fuad: Haha, that's funny, but no. The bosses are both poking fun at my friends.

@menip: Thanks for the feedback. I've noticed it as well. I think it is how Construct 2 converts the WAVs from BFXR into OGG. I'll have to look into it. Glad you liked the ending!

Nice entry overall. The graphics and audio leave a bit to be desired (music got repetitive quickly). Enjoyable gameplay and the spike balls were a fun and challenging surprise!

Solid entry! It's possible that the enemies could use a bit of tweaking. Staring out with the bats might have been better. One issue with the zombies is that they feel a bit non-interactive. Because the character speed is a bit slow, fighting them is mostly a matter of standing there and shooting at them until they die. The bats and the bosses were definitely much more interesting. I found level 5 to be strangely difficult, but everything else wasn't so bad. XD
