### Updates & Progress info on trello - June 20th, 2017 by: mintymiyazaki ####################
https://trello.com/b/CecfLdBo

- Boss Level - Momo added with nudity and animations
- Full Controller Support, I still need to add the (press start to proceed to next level)
- I fixed some issues where the images were being downscaled and looking like trash.
- Fixed the issues where UI elements looked like trash as the sprite quality

Known Issues:
- I had to scale down web version of the boss and game due to too many projectiles. I possibly may need to intervene with the garbage collection and activation (not instantiation) of objects due to PC/Linux version having over 4k projectiles on screen at once which causes performance losses. If you would like the true fidelity of the bullet hell, please consider downloading the Linux or PC versions. (Mobile Version Pending).

- The score doesn't mean anything at the moment, just have fun as it increases since there doesn't seem like there's a point to it and finishing the objective seems more important.

Future Implementations (Posting some here so I won't get hate messages for people that won't look at the trello link)
- Boss Phases
- Funnier Transitions
- Level Loading Screens (This is rather easy... I just wanted to design something enjoyable to look at).
- Galleries
- More updates on Trello

Love,

The game has lots of potential for a good bullet hell game but in my honest opinion i felt that even in normie mode and especially in bullet hell mode that it was almost impossible to get to the boss without getting hurt. Nontheless the game itself is good and the music is nice to just do over do it on the bullets to much great work! ^^'

Ironstrom responds:

Haven't checked here to often but thanks for the feedback. I will definitely come back to the project when my financial situation is better and work on the gameplay balancing and enjoyment factor.

It felt as difficult as Touhou on Medium to Hard, but there were also things that made the game feel janky compared to other bullet hells:

I didn't enjoy having momentum in my movement, it makes dodging way harder than it should be and doesn't feel good for a game that needs extremely precise movement.

The visibility of my hit marker wasn't very clear, it was a low opacity flashing dot - make it somewhat more noticeable.

The idea and adult mechanic was fun however, so props on that.

this game is just like deep space waifu

cool game but the boss battle lags the computer a lot. ( well mine anyway). The boss battle feels a bit much and over powering.

We'll get around to it but mint(programmer) is moving house and we have another game to finish commercially before then. But of course we don't want people to lag through the encounter.

This is a separate optimized web version. It's mainly for desktop but I'll port it properly to web once the other titles get shipped. Also... i am a carrot

this game is good and fun, but waaayyy too hard.. :/

maybe add a lower difficulty? or make the normie less intense?

Ironstrom responds:

Uh practise!... but there will be other things that effect balance in the future such as power ups and the like.

I believe there is a normies mode in this version.
