Well, Mike ran in to problems getting working properly with about 12 hours left in the Compo, so this is the backup plan.

My two sons wanted me to make a game while they made games too. So I made this shmup. All made in game maker studio pro (thanks humble bundle), sounds via sound recorder app on my phone.

my two son's entries:


Use the mouse to look.
Hold the mouse button to shoot. (I hate clicks-a-lot games so just hold it down when you want to shoot)

NOTE: The HTML5 export has like 90% of the game features working, plus depending on your browser/computer it might get slow and stupid. (missing score, game stats, proper restart) Download the windows exe if you want the full experience. It is just the game maker export, but if you don't trust me that is fine.

Pretty solid twin stick shmup. Being able to play with a controller would be nice!

It's nice to know your sons wanted you to participate in the jam!

Liked it. Is somewhat similar to my game, and I always like action games. Well done!

Something was goofed up with my DNS, I think I got it fixed again.

"Clear vision before death" -> funny idea :-) You should mark "Add fullscreen button" in "Edit entry", because the frame is too small to show all game screen. Windows version works without any problems. Gameplay is intense. Good that you opted for holding mouse button instead of clicking. I think that it would be nice to find "first aid kit" from time to time. Congratulations to your sons for motivating you :-)

OK game, nothing special and becomes repetitive after some time.

Funny and a bit addicting game! Very easy to play. Had fun

Simple game, but I did like being able to move and aim with just the mouse. A score - kill count - would have really improved the game and made me want to play more than once.

I like the controls, easy and simple to use. I found the sound effects a bit annoying.

Nice entry! I like how the screen gets red-er as you take damage. Lots of enemies and solid shoot-em-up gameplay.
