fact paced/ hectic for extreme math and science

BlueFireStudio responds:

Thank a lot, for playing and rating!!!

It's a functioning neon sh'mup/twin stick shooter with a unique resurrection mechanic, but unfortunately that is all it is. I say that with the warmest intentions because I see a lot of potential in this game if properly tweaked.

First off, the resurrection mechanic is your gold right here...it gives the player another chance in case they screwed up which can increase the replayability a ton as the player knows they doesn't need to sweat about one single mistake. Additionally I'd add a wave-based system for distributing the enemies so the player has a second or two to recoup before more enemies begin bombarding. Lastly, I couldn't get the medal to work despite scoring around 1400 which makes me sad :(

BlueFireStudio responds:

Thanks a lot for playing! The medal I am working on! I will polish the game a lot more. I didn't get time for adding more as its a jam game.

This is fantastic! I love the square ships! Now, if it only had some music. Maybe something like this dude's https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/967139 .

BlueFireStudio responds:

I will definitely add music really soon!

That's challenging
the graphics are amazing (but at some point there's so much bright stuff on the screen its hart to see where are you)

BlueFireStudio responds:

Thanks for playing! I will decrease the bloom soon!
