Quite basic, but that might not be a bad thing.
I loved the hitting effect, it had "power" in it.
The sword graphics and the slight screen shake
felt awesome. Movement was bit strange at start,
but I got used to it quickly.

Thank you for fast-paced action and upgrades. Also, I need MOAR upgrades!

Simple but good game. I liked the music. Here are some stuff you could improve:
- Put an end screen because at the end you cannot generate new waves but the counter still increases (or create and infinite number of waves by augmenting the speed of enemies)
- Write the message of the new wave once all enemies are dead
- Give some feedback when you are hit (sound/graphical) because it is hard too say when it is now.
- Make the hero invincible after being hit because if a single enemy touch you too long or if you are touched by multiple enemies, you loose too much health.
- Add noise/improve pathfinding. This is hard to do a good one but now, if you just turn around enemies, they stack in a single point and you can kill all of them at once. They also seem a bit fast when they are getting too close.

@Aun Thank you for these tips! I will continue working on the game and will do things better as I don't have the time limit anymore.

Great game, simple and smooth. It's just a bit too fast to die when they get you.

You had me sold with the sweet soundtrack. This game is fun, fast-paced, and dynamic. I got a lot more mileage out of my $500 bow than any of the expensive melee weapons. Having a final boss is always cool, but I think the one here should have at least tried to aim at the player. Still, good work!

First of all, AWESOME MUSIC! :D Had fun slaughtering zombies while listening to this heavy metal sound! Attacks to the zombies were really responsive, but when zombies attacked you sometimes I wondered "Did I really get hit?", but that was really just a minor issue. Overall great and fun game to play, if you want to feel bad ass killing machine :D

Simple and fun game, i like the sword animation a lot. The robot explosions make the game a little laggy but they are cool. The game lacks an End Game screen or something at the end and when you die and it's difficult to know when you are hit.

It's a nice entry :D
It's fun to play, the graphics are nice. The main thing I don't like is that when you open the shop the zombies keep coming after you, which makes it a little difficult. Other than that, the controls were responsive and it was a pretty polished game. Nice!

I really enjoyed it. sword swinging animation looks pretty nice.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 8:51pm

Swinging the blade and the blood effect were really satisfying :D Berserk mode on !!!

I didn't find how to get to the shop though...

Spawn positions need a little work. Kept dying due to enemies spawning directly on top of me.

Shop button is unresponsive.

movement felt good and the speed was alright. Enemy AI could use some variation. Enemies that take more than one hit would be good to have a visual marker and maybe an indication that you hit but not killed them.

Really liked the particle effects used.

Nice that you included a shop with such varying weapons! I kinda wish I had had more to spend money on such as upgrades, and there could've been more enemy variety, but overall very neat!

@n00basaurus @Yami no tenshi Yeah I found out today that I forgot to resize the hud with resolutions. That's why the shop button is in wrong place for bigger resolutions.

Really fun, and feels great!

Killing stuff feels really good, but one hit kills for those basic enemies would probably be better.

The balance is really off though! Way too hard and takes too much to get a new weapon.

The sound effect for hitting people doesn't feel meaty or impactful enough - it feels too tingy.

Need some feedback passes on when you get damaged. It's hard to keep looking at the top corner :).

Like the music! <3
Most of what I was going to say Aun said already, particularly the "new wave" message appearing when you are still trying to deal with the current wave is a little odd/distracting, and the fast enemies can just latch onto you forever if they get too close. Invincibility frames, or making the enemy pause after attacking, would make this aspect a lot better.

Great mechanic, reminds me of Amorphous+!
It was an interesting gauntlet. Felt somewhat bland, as most compo entries, due to time, often are, but the execution was amazingly perfect.
And wow! This is a compo, so you made the music, right? Great skills.

Hello! I done some update for my game you can try it by downloading Windows PostCompo on game page

Hey this was a lot better than I was expecting; more than one enemy type, multiple weapons. Pretty good for an LD.
I think some adjustments needed would be to make the shop auto open at the end of a round instead of having a button for it. Also a warning when you're low on health
