A game made in 15 days in Game Maker: Studio just for fun.

Yeah, the shop is a mess.
It's unballanced.
Probably it isn't even fun.

I tried to do some of those oldschool newgrounds wave games. Next time will be better.

So what drugs were you on when you made this game? Cause I want some of that.

It's called "Sonic".

2fast2quick, dude.

Is not a bad game, it's fun to blow things up with guns. Controls work good, and even if the art style is on the "simple side" it has its charm. The shop is indeed a bit messy, it needs a way to know how much upgrades are worth, and I can't have more than 3 on the middle upgrade (which I'm guessing is the cooldown time), I can't get the bomb (grenade ?) either. Also the music suddenly stops when the game starts, and is never heard again.

Zelun responds:

Yeah, that thing with the music happened sometimes with me testing. This is a strange bug which I'm gessing is not my fault, but instead it's Game Maker's fault.
The shop is really bad, I agree. It's my first time doing something like that and I didn't knew what kind of things were needed.
The middle thingy is bullet speed.

Glad you liked the shooting!

Great game reminds me of Arcade shooters and mobile games mixed in one. Surprisingly a good combination. The Upgrades are cool, and the music is amazing. Keep up the good work!

Zelun responds:

Cool, thanks! :D

The whole game feels cheap. There is no reload button, waves is gonna be repetitive quick, there is no explanations in shop what each item do. But in general I like the surreal graphic style. The way how enemies look like, how there is no explanation who you are and what happened. I really like it. And the ending was surprisingly unexpected.

Zelun responds:

Yeah, thanks!

I agree with you. Reload seems wrong.
Waves are repetitive.
This is the first upgrade system i've ever done. So it is pretty bad.

It's a pretty good game actually. Graphics play with ur eyes and fx with u lol but the gameplay is pretty good and addicting

Zelun responds:

I hope it didn't cause motion sickness or some shit like that. (Sorry if it did).
