Dang i got hunted


Pretty fun arcade game. Idk if I'm just bad but it seems like the bullets come out very fast, and if there's a squirrel or bush on the edge, I get bodied pretty quick, especially in the levels where it's a vertical column of bullets, so if I see a bush close to the edge I'm already expecting to die from one hit. Speaking of which, when you die idk if it's my screen but it says "o:menu" but it does it when I press p instead. I've been hit by some bullets a few times that seemed like they should've gone past me but hit me instead, maybe it's just my eyes but it could be the hitboxes were bigger than they seemed idk. Another thing I think could really help is being able to move diagonally, it may make it easier to dodge bullets. Other than that I enjoyed it

Thanks a lot for playing and for the feedback!

Just saved your game!

The concept and progression are solid (for as far as I got) but a few things could get tweaked. Whether I win or not is mostly determined by how close the berry bushes are to the edge of the screen. Given that there's no way to block bullets and the character only has one hp, the bullets are also going a bit too fast for my tastes. Also it's somewhat hard to tell whether the bushes have been harvested or not, maybe put more berries on the non-harvested bushes? Finally, the squirrels' movement patterns are somewhat predictable, maybe they could be "scared" by bullets traveling close to them? Despite the difficulty and rough patches I enjoyed playing though.
