A decent core game, but gets old fast. Definitely has some nice polish to it with certain elements like cool explosions for death of enemies and the player, a weight/momentum to the player's movement, the way the score ticker pulses with each point, and the way the text wobbles about. These elements are very nice and do elevate the game beyond what would just be a very simple game, but even then it can get pretty repetitive quickly: there's nothing to really shake it up and make it exciting like power-ups, enemy varieties, music, levels, difficulties, etc.

Could do with a bit of music. Solid stuff otherwise.

a little frustating, at first, but i started to get the jist of it afte 6 games, i like the idea and the simple aesthetic, it takes me back to the era of aracde games , really good work

Very simple but addictive, especially with the High Scores board. I like the high rate of fire of the arrows, and the sound effects are nice.

thank you man, i hope to beat your highscore one day haha

A very good example of the flow state! Important feeling in game design, I love that "Arrow Girl" has a certain acceleration in its movement and that his shots have a certain delay on what part of the screen is aiming, a mistake and you're totally exposed! the effects and particles are a nice touch and it benefits a lot that the background it is totally black and the projectiles colored blocks.
Very well executed the simple concept, a little more content or mechanics would not hurt to give some variation

thank you, that means a lot :)
