You are assigned to exterminate these green monsters. But are they the real monsters here?

For some reason controllers don't work properly in the browser version. Try to press other buttons (like X, Y, A, B) and then press "start".

this is almost 5 years old, why is this in my "You might also enjoy..."?

Now if only it was a complete game... If you finish this I'll give 4.5 :D

Really cool stuff! I had a blast playing this! Keep up the great work!

Very short, but like it. Wish there were more chars to pick from, and maybe upgrades defo more levels! Maybe some including boss levels?

Pretty good for a jam. It reminds of the old top-down shooters like Alien Syndrome. The hero looks like an old Apogee character called Commander Keen.

The overall mechanics are solid, and that's what's important. The sound is crisp, the music is good. It controls quite quite, and it's a pretty challenging game. I feel like the enemies had a bit too much health, especially since aiming can be difficult, and the level design/gameplay don't give the opportunity for any really good tactics. But you did put enough health upgrade into. I enjoyed it. Graphics are nice, especially the different types of enemies.

More levels and gun and armor upgrade are necessary, but it seems already know that, and I suspect you'd have implemented that and more if you'd had more time.

Thank you for the response! That is very nice, that you understand the situation we created this game in. Anyway I have an idea for another top-down shooter and your advice is very helpful for me!
