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

DOOMTANK, a visceral, fast-paced experience. Enter the ever-changing room of Hell and slay its inhabitants.

Find and use four new weapons to destroy the minions of hell. Equip armor to stay alive. Place towers that split your shots into two. Most of all, beat your high score.

DOOMTANK supports controllers, keyboard, and keyboard+mouse, and has rebindable keys. We recommend a controller for the best experience.

*Edit: PRESS ESCAPE OR ENTER to enable "Aim with Mouse" and to rebind your controls. Sorry everyone, that feature wasn't very obvious!

The art is fantastic. Good work. The controls are difficult but I think is a good thing because it makes you want to keep playing to master them. It's pretty hard to steer and aim at the same time. The effects are good too.

Wow, amazing work on this. The game's great fun, and the art is incredible! :D Slight improvement in the camera is all I can think of to fix.

Really nice game. The graphics are good and the music is amazing. The game is hard and the controls are tricky, but it still is pretty fun.

Maybe it's just a linux version bug (common with Unity) but sometimes the player stops aiming at the mouse.

Overall, it's a solid twin stick bullet hell shooter! But it could use more enemy variety :P

Man this is great once I got into it. 26630 high score so far (probably pretty low, only played about 3 games). Definitely keeping this one around to play some more. Great job.

The controls I think would be smoother with mouse aiming, although that may go against what you were trying to do

Fantastic game. The tower splitting was a neat idea.

Awesome submission! The soundtrack was very fitting!

Maxed out at 70770 :(
Not really sure what the crystals were for?

Oh yeah, got the mouse working. Definitely going to be playing this some more.

Very challenging! Can't stop playing it, even when I've failed countless times :)

Sharp, will play again.

Love the game. The soundtrack is fantastic. Aside from some camera issues and balancing this is a great entry.

Great visuals, fitting sound and amazing gameplay! The only issues is the KBD+Mouse controls, they feel quite unresponsive when you have to flick the mouse around to shoot when you start to get surrounded.

Good job!

The art and the sounds are metal. Great job

Incredible game. The first thing I notice is the quality of the music. Couldn't get the mouse to work...Didn't know why...Didn't care once I realized I could dual-stick it. Now I've read the description, I realize it doesn't start with mouse working.. :) Squarely in my top genres of games.

Great job guys!

Good mood through the audio, visuals and overall play style. Good use of theme with changing layout. Very well conceived.

I love the music. The gameplay is very punishing, maybe a little too much on the sadistic side honestly. I like the enemy design though.

Cool game. Hard, but very good.

OMG that was stressful. Turns out I'm terrible at unwinnable bullet hell hell?...real hell? Either way this was really well done and I REALLY enjoyed playing it.

Lovely graphics, challenging game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :)

This is awesome! Great art, great sounds, really really engaging gameplay. It is rather difficult what with the huge swarms of enemies, but it still seems possible, and is very very fun.
