F to fullscreen

Blinkous is a really challenging arcade action game. You move really slowly, but luckily you have a super fast dash attack. You can dash to move around, avoid damage and inflict damage on enemies if you go through them.

- Easy to learn and hard to master gameplay with only three buttons
- Neverending action with endless waves of crushing enemies
- Three different types of enemies that will work together to destroy you
- Defeat enemies to increase your score. Aim for the highest!
- Pixel art and chiptune music for a great retro experience

the game started a little too abruptly and i didnt get to read the controls. then i realized that i was actually doing what i was supposed to do, but the movement is just really erratic to the point where i assumed i must have been doing something wrong
in general this seems cool but it didnt grab me. its really hard to control the player and i feel like im either moving way too fast or way too slow. ill probably give it another try later but didnt really enjoy my first time

I assume you pressed F to go fullscreen and the game started, right? I will put the F key as an exception for the "any key pressed" thingy. We should make the game wait some seconds before starting spawning enemies so the player can get ready for the action. I liked your point about the movement being too erratic, I never really thought about it, this is definitely a game too different from the usual but sometimes we should make things more similar.
Thank you for your valuable feedback. Getting used to the characters's control is part of the game's challenge, but it may be a little obnoxious to get used to the slow/fast movement. I hope you do try again, maybe you'll enjoy this time :)

Crap game, you get shot by bullets no mater what you do.


marcosfl responds:

Bullets that come high can be dodged by crouching or dashing, and low bullets can be dodged by dashing. Don't confuse a hard game with a bugged game, we're pretty sure the game mechanics here work fine

I had a lot of fun playing ,but there definitely is room for improvement. Like adding powerups and more enemies.

Thanks man, really glad you had fun. We did that in 48 hours for a game jam so we didn't have time to add everything we wanted, but hopefully we improve on this game in the future

Quite a swell game with a mechanic that, while it's hard to master, it's fun to try as best as you can.
