Nice simple game. I like the zoom in slo-mo effect.

Good, but could use more innovation. Still, I like zoom-in and old-school style

For 1/2 hour this is amazingly well done.
A lot of juicyness!
Love the slow motion effect and sound. It was a little hard to distinguish between things that hurt you and things that were in the background, but overall a solid game!

Nice game. I think the ship is a bit too much slippy and becomes very quickly impossible to control. I am not sure the background is appropriate as it makes the projectiles hard to see. The fact that you cannot leaves the map is a good idea but as I do not control well my ship, it is hard to follow what's happening. It is even worst if you have to follow all projectiles because if you are close to a border, you cannot see danger arrive. You could also remove the "_" at best score :)

Yeah, it's just asteroids with some controls, but I love it.

Also, if you just don't fire your weapon they don't fire theirs. Makes it pretty easy to avoid 'em.

Nice. Damn 30min? Wish i could do something like this in such a short time. Awesome job!

It looks like a good little game

Zoom in is pretty cool! Also like how you have to immediately focus on a new part of the room when you goes from down to up :) Made a couple of tries before handling the gameplay, but it was enough fun to die and retry.
Nice work!

Really nice game. I really like the graphics. Keep up the good work!

Outstanding for 30 mins! Controls are good, right on the edge of sloppy, which created a good feeling of it being my fault but also never being totally in control. Graphics, sound, and quick retry loop all helped carry the day.

Nice entry!

Simple game, but pretty tough and very addictive! Impressive entry, especially given the timeframe - I'd say that was a 1/2 hour well spent. Slo-mo zoom was a great touch.
