Solid timekiller and concept, beautiful aesthetic. It'd be nice if there were some kind of story, maybe make the six-eyed creature do more than sit in the middle, and as mentioned in other reviews, add some persistent upgrades.

Not bad, though it could be improved with some persistence, like if each run is what gave you permanent upgrades, and there was some kind of payoff, like reaching the bottom where you get to defeat the unkillable monster. As it stands, it just a kind of ‘play it until you get bored’ game.

This looks like it'd be a good game if it functioned, and I'm sorry to say this, but you get two stars for the aesthetic, and no stars for everything else.

First, I tried to load the game. Loading bar got stuck. I had to reload the page five times for the loading to work, and it was still quite slow. This took about 15 minutes, and if I wasn't stuck in a repetitive online class I wouldn't even have had the pacience for it. (Maybe the video call had something to do with the game being so slow, but all the other newgrounds games I played work fine.)

Then I got so see the tutorial/instructions, and it seemed cool. Then I tried to press space to play. It made the entire computer lag. No dice. After some 15 more minutes in my class with the game abandoned in the background, I returned to find it was starting to run. I got some very basic gameplay with invisible walls in a weird map and clunky shooting. I ied and I guess no replay button. The game window doesn't show the HUD fully outside fullscreen.

I'm on chrome, by the way. This game needs MAJOR fixing.
