I really like the mechanics of this. The way the enemy numbers increase as you move really makes you think about your actions, you try to be as efficient as possible with last second dodges and efficient collection. I like the way you can see where the enemies are going to spawn on your next move, too.
The music and sound design is nice, though maybe a game over theme would be nice.
Tough as nails, though.
My biggest complaint is the tiny screen size. I sit quite far from my monitor so it's really hard to see anything1
Yep, game over was on the to-do but no time to get it done :D Also I tried adding some sort of 'request fullscreen' option but I guess newgrounds has none of that. Thanks for the feedback I will update once the jam is complete!
Very difficult but once you get the hang of it it feels fair and consistent. The one issue I have is that, we can only attack in 8 directions but it sometimes feels like the enemy is a few pixels out of alignment meaning you can't actually hit them. Maybe increase the hitbox sizes or - if they actually are perfectly aligned and it just *feels* off - maybe show a flash of their silhouette for near misses.
I am really enjoying this though and will probably play a lot more!
Great way to kill some time! The explosion sound effect is a bit clippy and I think the sound design could be a bit punchier in general, but the gameplay is solid fun and I like the visual style :)
I only wish the AI could understand more phrases. The music, visual design and writing are all top-notch, though. Fantastic game.
