Pretty cool little arcade game! I quickly realized on my first run that I better save my bullets and grenades lol
Game becomes super hard quickly in the second level, but I like the idea of powerups, leveling, etc. Well executed. The only thing that really bothered me was to not have a mouse cursor to show me where I was aiming... Other than that it was quite well executed. Cheers

Really simple but nice art! I find it a little bit slow and I would switch the "shoot" and "granade" controls as it would be more intuitive to shoot with LMB (as in most games).
I had fun playing it! :)

Dual wielding, yay! Gameplay is a little on the slow side I feel, but still very hard. The grenade is incredibly hard to use when hunted by a pack. Graphics and collision works fine tho. Still better than my own game. Good job!

Cool game. I like the ammo system, but I didn't get ammo spawns very often and I spammed my bullets too much and died shortly after. Haha. Oh, and I like the heat system too. Adds a level of realism to the game.

First run was a bit brutal because I didn't realize I needed to save my ammo! Gets overwhelming fast, especially when the ammo spawns are scarce and the scene has gotten crowded. Also felt very odd to have the grenades (a less common action) bound to mouse 1 and the more commonly used bullets to mouse 2.

OK game. Heating is a nice idea. Controls are a bit weird, but it doesn't really matter. Nothing else to say.

P.S: I fixed my game.

Simple and fun! Would be nice with some audio feedback when you hit an enemy to make it more satisfying

Pretty good game! I like the variety of enemies, and the graphics work well. I felt like a badass shooting 4 bullets at once! But then I ran out of ammo and died. Quite fun!

Nice little arena shooter. I wasn't sure what the heat stat was for, but everything else made sense.

Unfortunately, I played this game on a laptop, which made the game very hard (because of the touch pad rather than a dedicated mouse). Game pad controls with dual analogs would be wonderful for this style of game, but I'm not sure how difficult that would be to implement in Love2d.

Also, I did find a bug where I could move pretty far off the edge of the map either to the right or down, there was an eventual barrier, but it was pretty far back.
