Great entry! The pacing, level up system, different enemy types, and shield abilities were all really well done. Surprisingly gruesome.

Really good job on this game, full of interesting contents ! Love how the "good gus" are talking to us in a heroic way, really funny ! And it gets really hard in the end, a good challenge !

I would have like an item attracting capacity though ;)

Neat! Polished and elegant.
It's a little slow in the beginning after I die. If you add a skip intro or something I'll play again ;)

Really cool game with an awesome art style, and great humor! My one complaint is the difficulty spike on (what I assume is) the very last level. Everything was very easy until that one, and then the screen is filled with enemies and it's extremely hard.

Anyways, great work!

I always like games where you play the villain! Nice music and graphics, great that you followed the theme. Nice game and thumbs up for Java!

Great entry. It is nice to have two different keys for firing (I cannot use space and two arrows at the same time because of keyboard ghosting).

Thank you for comments :)
Yes this is a compo :)
I've run out of time to add more content like a big boss or a super-power but I'm satisfaying with the result.

(I have hardly slept during these 48 hours to make this game ^^)

Quite fun and charming! Lots of content to it as well, with the abilities and different potions, etc.

Music is suitable, sounds are all right. Graphics are good and cute. Gives it lots of charm. Something I may play again.

Polish, gradualy difficult and fun ! It's a great game ! The only one think who bother me was the unability to shot in back when running away from ennemies.

Mwahaha, this last wave is IMPOSSIBLE! xD
Maybe the game I had the most fun with, and one of the most complete one. Really great job!

Thanks all !

I work on a new version with more enemies, more powers and more waves.
(And an option to skip the intro)

Dec 16, 2016 @ 6:41pm

Quite complete game, really neat entry, pretty strong in each aspect and really fun gameplay. I especially love the different kind of enemies. Really impressive for compo

Dec 16, 2016 @ 9:15pm

This game rocks, classic but super smart and efficient! Super polish too, we're super impressed.

I don't know if it was just me, but I can't shoot and go to the top left, and that really ruined my experience, even if if it's a solid game.

You are the first to say that, you play with WASD ou arrow keys ?

Can you try with arrow keys ?

What is your OS and java version ?

Good job but the shoot direction isn't intuitive, the dialog of enemies is funny

Dec 20, 2016 @ 9:44pm

Really well made game! You didn't do anything that special with the theme but that doesn't matter, you did a great job!

a very nice little game. Enjoyed it very much. Love the fact that shots are not instant.

Dec 21, 2016 @ 4:42pm

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