Needs:
- Attack cooldown
- Lag fix (ingame theres a lot of.. slowdown)

Re-check:
- Moving up and down on the ground (hitting the buttons accidentally stop your character, might want to make it so that they just move you up on the vines)
- Shop GUI (Clunky and not exactly the most good looking GUI. Perhaps move the buttons closer and make them more compact.)

Caavida responds:

Thank you for your constructive criticism. :)
Yeah, actually the vine was planned as a close-range attack. But that did not turn out to be a good solution. It has proved to be very bulky and difficult due to the simple movement.
I also thought about a cooldown, but I liked the buttonmashing in the end.

I'm sorry you had lags. :(
I used the RAM to full capacity on porpuse and filled the arena with enemies but I had no lags.

I see your point at the up- and down-buttons-problem.

Also good Points with the Shop GUI. ;)

All in all, I'm planning a mobile port in December and will consider your suggestions for improvement. Of course, also for the HTML version.
In the end it was just a matter of time, because the game had to be finished in a month because of the jam and because I did it all by myself, there was not much time to deviate from the plan.

But as I said, thank you for your criticism! :)
There is no denying that there are some things to improve. ^^

Avoiding the red E.Tish plant is very hard on some floor enemies spawn too fast.

Yeah, it's really plays like '80 arcade game. But drawbacks is that it really repetitive and don't provide decent challenge. And also it's impossible to avoid bullets from red plant.

Caavida responds:

Thanks for your feedback. :)
You can shoot the bullets. ;)
