Interesting concept. It would be nice to include the controls in the instructions. WASD to move but I'm not really sure what the shoot button is, which makes it hard to get very far. Would be nice to make player confirm before restarting too. :)

Graphics, Sound and Game-mechanics work really well together in this game, good job!

Good work. I'm glad that I was able to shoot enemy bullets too, that felt nice. I felt a little confused as to the danger of the falling pieces, at first I thought I could be crushed, or use them to crush my enemies, but neither of those seemed true and the baddies could just shoot through them. Still, solid stuff, good job this weekend.

At first I did not quite get the control, as I (naively) did not check this site - so I though you could only move and not shoot. Actually, the game was quite fun without any shooting, and I was really driven by the music (especially as it turned more intense and I died I really wanted to play again).
Therefore it is sad that you did not include more music, but good game anyway!

Cool game! The graphics are simple but the little effects make them work a lot better, if you work more on the game I'd add even more fun effects to everything. Fun idea that translated to fun gameplay as well.

I like concept and the music. And the artstyle is unique, and original! I had fun, even if it is just a simple idea!

I forgot to mention, I am a big Godot fun!

That's pretty good. Doesn't have nearly anything to do with Tetris, but it is very innovative and enjoyable.

Really cool and original. It's quite hard to aim though !

Something about this feels really satisfying, the fire rate and bullet speed make it so that you have to really think about where you're aiming, and it feels great when you hit an enemy mid-air or cancel one of their bullets.
Graphics and sound fit perfectly!
Love the weapons, amazing what you can do with just a few simple shapes and tweaking the bullet behaviour. well done!
