High-grade game. The gameplay is not the standard. Graphics on top.

Excellent graphics. Took me a moment to realize repairing took energy, but it makes sense. Two-player's also cool.

I really liked the idea of this game, and actually had fun playing it. I'm sure it would have been even better with another person!

Original idea, at least for me. I didn't have anyone to play with, so I can judge only single player mode. I liked it. Great sprite work.

Cool gameplay, fit the theme very well. Graphics and music are nice. The game is insanely hard!

Also controls are buggy on the web version when there's too much ennemies!

Nice work, enjoyable and nicely polished for a jam game. Would be awesome if there was a bit more to it though.

Exceptional Graphics, really. This game looks and feels polished to a great extent. A really hard game to play if you do not have a friend with you. Specially impressed how the controller support was well implemented in so little time.
