A very intriguing shooter! One problem I encountered is one of the round enemies spawned outside of the playable area and was unable to be shot, so I would recommend looking over the spawning boundaries. Otherwise, intriguing art for the enemies! Another place for potential development would be the background scrolling art, and some sort of variation there. Really cool though!

I had a lot planned -- different backgrounds, patterned-enemy movement, power-ups, real boss fights, etc. But this was for a jam and the deadline came quickly. I'll iterate on what you've suggested and work to make a better game. I have received advice on how to prevent the frame drops. Thank you for your consideration!

Love it!

It doesn't start- it won't start when I press space- ):

Xinjinmeng responds:

I've noticed that it does that sometimes. My advice is to reload the page, and make sure the window doesn't lose focus while you're loading.
