The game is still in 'alpha' phase so please be assured I am taking on board all player feedback and striving to make improvements and changes where needed, no matter how big or small.

Hey guys, I'm embarking on a project to make a futuristic / retro style / sci-fi Metroidvania.

Honestly... I loved it. It wasn't really difficult, but I thought it was on purpose... I think it would have be great to add a scenario to your game, you know. The universe is very interesting, so why not? I'd love to know what happened on Earth, why does this research lab exists, where do all those parasite-plant monsters come from... But in the end, it was a very decent demo. I love art pixel art, its one of my favorites kinds of 2D art, and I know how compicated that must have been to draw all those sprites.

For the remaining, I've read a lot of reviews below saying the game was laggy, but I didn't lag (on Chrome).The only thing that was frustrating for me was about the weapons, the upgrading system and the fact you lose your gun when you die... I lost the flamethrower I found by pure hazard, so I'm a little bit.... Argh...

In the end, that game has a real potential. I'm totally impatient to see it when you'll finalize it :)

PS: Sorry for my english if I have made any mistakes, I'm trying to do better but I know I'm not perfect ;) Keep up the good work !

Looks great, lags a lot. Certain screens get stuck with no allowance of returning to main screen. When Skipping through the intro the page gets stuck on repeat with 6 years laters. A little more tweeking and this will be a stellar game.

This is great, I'm not experiencing any of the lag that other people are talking about.

I can't even get the menu screen to work, I can't move in the selection menu and I'm instead greeted with a bunch of lag and so forth. Some improvement with Firefox browser compatibility could be helpful, is what I'm saying. Until then, I can't give a fair answer as to the actual gameplay.
