Basic concept but so well polished! Love the way you should adapt your movement each wave to fully understand all blocks patterns.

Really Cool! But please, enable the fullscreen button.


Really like this concept for a bullet hell!! Been really into bullet hell games lately and this one is really good for being so small with such a simple idea.


This is super awesome! Love to play this game, it's very well designed and the concept is very well implemented. Well done. Being a Game Jam, it is still made beautiful and enjoyable. Although it's a small concept at this stage, it would be great to look into the bigger picture. Scaling this game by taking care of user feedback and intuitiveness would be the next step.

I and my team would love to have an eye on this project ahead of time. So, added you to our future checking list. All the best.


cool game! :)
