Slow and boring.
Short: You took every non-madness thing that was present in Accelerant (enemies taking lot of time to die, ridiculously slow bullets, flying in the air when being hit) and forgot the things that ARE Madness like.
Ah, and tutorial screens are pain in ass. (Press arrow keys to move... - I GET IT! - Press arrow keys to move...)
Needs LOT of work. It's mix of beatem'up and run'n'gun? THEN IT NEEDS QUICKER PACE.
Nothing happens. Nothing. After short play of this I had to run Thelemite, to remind myself how action game SHOULD look like.
Last question: WHY IS THIS FRONTPAGED? I see no other reason besides that Tom Fulp felt *flattered* that someone decided to make poor clone of his game...
But this is *still* just poor clone. And crappy game, too.
