Hi everyone, Jay here from RIE STUDIOS, this is Komodo Crunchtime; a love letter to the 90s and the coin-op culture of the time.

Komodo Crunchtime is a fun 90s-style arcade shooting/time-attack game.

Players must battle enemies to collect time gems while flying at high-speed. Dodge past hordes of enemies and unleash your powerful scratch attack at close range, but beware the constantly ticking clock!

Okay, I Like the Ingredients, but...

...This game is a mess. There a lot about the intentions behind this game I like. I tend to like games with catchy, upbeat music like shown here, with colorful graphics and such, and of course, the 90's was full of such games.

However, the controls are quite unresponsive, and need fixing. I can't move left or right, and I can barely move up or down. The sprites, although nicely designed (they look really colorful like something out of bust a move or Twinbee), are lacking in regards to their animation. They sure could use a few extra frames if you know what I mean. There should be more variety in enemies, and a couple bosses too. We need more than just green spiky guy and seahorses, just saying. Although I love the music you have here, each stage should have it's own unique musical score. Also, these weird symbols pop up when I shoot down stuff. I don't know what that's for. Also, powerups, can't go wrong with power ups. Oh, and through in some precise bullet curtain patterns for challenge. Yep, I think that's all.

Wow, thanks for seeing what we were trying to do. I released the game early, but I'm in the middle of updating as we make it better for the web. More enemies, more music, more powerups and animations. Bare with me. Really though, thanks for playing. The symbols say -3 sec :)

Hopefully check back in the future and they'll be some new updates

broken game is broken

play test it - the character stops for no apparent reason while holding up or down.

in the process of fixing this, the game was originally designed for mobile, must admit the controls need tweaking. Thanks for the POV
