Play as one of four sisters in this action-packed arcade throwback inspired by the likes of Nuclear Throne and Castle Crashers! This game features four levels, fifteen weapons, a big assortment of enemies to gun your way through, and four unique characters to smack those enemies with.

Controls are:
WASD to move
Left mouse button to fire
Mouse to aim

First time playing, fun game, ~2million score, 12m 03s as Wendy, the shotgun is impeccable. Solid game, I see other people complaining about gameplay; but gameplay is fun interactive and simple.

Edit: Also, when the game ends I wish it would send us back to main menu so I don't have to refresh my webpage to play again. And maybe add a pause function?

Really fun, great sprite work!

i love the gameplay, a plot would be nice

I wanted to elaborate more on the story of the game through scenes in between levels but I ended up not having time to add those scenes, so instead I basically had to cram the entire story into the ending scene. There was supposed to be a little conversation before the boss fight that'd reveal the big plot twist that the villain is actually your oldest sister, but not everything ends up working out. Thanks for your comment, I'm glad you enjoyed the game!

Presentation and aesthetics are on point but the gamefeel is really off

milkbarjack responds:

Thanks for your critique, I'll try to work more on improving how the game actually feels to play for our next project.

So.. Gwen is slightly overweight Colby is overweight Ivy and Wendy have BMIs of over 30 making them obese :? very odd

milkbarjack responds:

To be completely honest, those are some numbers I pulled out of my ass last-minute when it came to making up info for those characters and didn't check the accuracy of or anything. Very impressed that you actually calculated their individual BMIs though, and thanks for playing!
