It's a very basic shoot-em-up with some simple upgrades, depending on how skilled you are it can be a simple 5 - 10 minute play through.
I made this over a couple weekends for a friend's birthday. It was a short experiment to get back into making games again.
==== UPDATE ====
Screen size update:
A lot of reviews mentioned the screen-size was too big - I've gone ahead and made the screen smaller and zoomed the camera out to account for this - personally I preferred the larger pixel size, but unfortunately it's not possible to have both without having something like 1.25 pixel size and it ends up warping stuff and lookin gross.
I made the gun a slight bit weaker, but improved the reload system. It now doubles the damage of all bullets in the chamber, this makes the ammo upgrade more worth it.
A few people mentioned they weren't aware of double jumps and wall slides/jumps - I've updated the room before the boss to make this more obvious.
No one likes the space bar jump - who knew?
I've kept it but also made it so you can jump with up or W, and added arrow key controls too.
