Our game jam theme was "Ladybugs knocking over deadly butchers". We chose the obvious thing to do with that theme, so there's no need to explain it here.

Press Q to change quality, F to toggle fullscreen, and the rest of the instructions are in-game.

ENJOY!!!!!!!

I couldn't rate it lower...

I was on the verge of a 9 ... but the creativity was simply stellar. Maybe I'm showing my ignorance ... but I'd never seen a shooter like this where formations could be made, and were actually strategically needed in places...

Super fun, and very smooth.

Triple Threat!

Gameplay, Graphics, and Sound! It has it all...

That formation system blew my mind, essential gameplay for this style of gaming. The game felt right...both the movement and the shots flowed. The difficulty curve felt natural (after every boss the game should get harder...yeah...) It felt as if the game fitted the rhythm of the music and it was just downright fun!

But that formation system...hell yes...

My favorite Game Jam submission so far.



They're in My HEAD!

Expand upon it.

It was made in three days, right? This was a thrill to behold in Full-Screen Mode, and the formation concept is something that will be ripped off by everyone else who sees it in action. Might as well take the hint and see if this can become a shooter with tons of levels, faster pace, or what have you.

Congratulations. This is likely the best of the crop from NG Game Jam 3.

i wont expand on the formation idea in the near future, maybe the far future though


good job on the game

{it's a kinda addicting game }



AMAZING!!!!!

This game is soooooo awesome!!! It would have been "just another arcade shooter" if it wasn't for the ingenious formation system (a very good "just another arcade shooter" nonetheless).
