Made this is 48 hours for Ludum Dare #23. Theme was "Tiny World", and here's what I came up with.

Enjoy!

Nice game, but one glitch... Not sure if it's some secret or something.
If you keep going outwards when you start, you end up at the final screen.

Great game, love the concept. It a whole new type of labyrinth game in a sense.

Is it a bug though that if I keep going outside the frame and expanding, it takes me to the win screen and then it locks it so I can't go back in?

This happened to be an excellent game and the challenge is there. Possibly the most challenging part of the game are those long bars. Found it kind of weird how instead of a rectangle explosion it shows a double square explosion, I guess there was not enough time to try making it rectangle instead and just went with two squares instead.

The graphics are very much retro and actually pretty nice. Also enjoyable how it does not seem to have much of a story to it. Simple and with it zooming in and out for each segment it does wonders since it makes navigating the maze pretty fun.

The audio was really nice. Sounds for when you shot something, explosions and the music was also nice. I find it kind of funny how once you get to hard mode I would not consider the music reversed. Saying this because paying attention you can hear one sound that should clearly be going in reverse but still going forward instead.

Hard mode is fun yet hard at the same time. Ironically I think the only part that got harder was those bars shooting out a little faster while the squares shoot out double the ammo yet everything has the same health amount which helps make it a bit easier since dodging all the ammo for those bars is hard enough.

Dodging the bullets for the squares is easy along with beating them. Instead of sitting to a side of the ammo you can stand between the bullets and fire at the squares making it easier to beat them. Takes a little practice for a moment though to get between them so you take no damage.

Medals are fun to earn too. The only hard ones to gain though are of course the hard mode medals. As for the secret medals, they can either be easy or hard.

Secret medals:

Flawless - Beat the game and take no damage.

Actually feel this one was rather easy to do. Just go get the gun and then exit the maze and do what you would normally do to reach hard mode. Since you went in far enough to get the gun the game will not put you in hard mode and you instead go the boss who is pretty easy to beat after spending a little time shooting all sides to find the weakness.

Clever - Enter Hard Mode

When the game starts instead of going up, go down, you eventually reach the YOU WIN screen. However the scores are "?????". Go back a little more and the "reverse" version of the music plays. Everything has the same health, enemies shoot twice as much and do a little more damage.

Sweet - Beat Hard Mode

Enter Hard Mode first. This one is easy if you go get the gun and go back the finish and don't bother to collect anything else.

Genocide - Kill all enemies on hard mode, little hard since everything but the blue squares at the start shoot and do more damage than usual.

Greedy - Collect all the coins (+) on Hard Mode
200% - Kill all enemies and collect all coins on hard mode.

Overall, incredibly fun game and finding and completing Hard Mode makes this more of a challenge. Would be nice to see more games like this one.


Lots of people find this review helpful!

Interesting concept, cool design, interesting extra things:
-Find Hard Mode
-Beat Hard Mode
-Do the game perfectly (no damage)

I can't find the other three, but I've:
-Killed the boss as the only enemy I kill
-Beat Hard mode with no life loss
-stuff?

I'm guessing one of those is beat hard mode while losing no life, getting all cash, and killing all enemies, but that sounds retarded hard to get.

None of the ones left involve beating hard mode without losing life

As expected from you, Mr. Glaiel. Another great game. The Ludum Dare time constraint further proves your brilliance at making games that are innovative and captivating. I'm sure it could be a glitch because of the time constraints not allowing for adequate bug-testing, but when I beat the boss and kept moving towards the center, I came back to the title screen area. The reverse was also true as some have pointed out. And if you intended for that to happen, then bravo.

Really though, great game. I'd go so far as to say it's a great standalone game.
