Made for Weekly Game Jam 118, a simple, standard SHMUP game.

A lot has been going on this week (e.g.: Typhoon Hagibis) so unfortunately I could only submit a very simple game this time. This game is actually made as a malleable prototype that I can easily modify for future use.

Controls:

  • Arrow Keys: move
  • Z: Shoot
  • LShift: Strafe/Slow Move

Have fun :)

P.S.: For some reasons my PC can't test my engine's exported HTML5 anymore... I think Windows updates are to blame. If anyone faces the same problem please let me know. Because of this I also upload the exe version of this game.

Yes. I beated him. Great controls. But it's a little bit annoying to press the button to restart. Would be nice if the z button also works.

Noted. I guess it'd be much better if the game has full keyboard only control...

"Demon Slain", the boss reminds me off this boss. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p2gY7l9y5oU

Nice prototype! The HTML5 version worked fine for me. It was pretty hard, but I'm not great at this type of game, so I might not be a good judge. I did beat it though, so the difficulty balance is probably just right for me!

It'll be cool to see what you do with this moving forward.

Wow really? I actually intended this to be very easy tbh - I suppose my difficulty standard for SHMUP has been greatly skewed by a year of playing Touhou XD

Thanks for playing. Very glad to know the HTML5 works fine for you - I suppose I will be uploading the HTML5 version still then

Haha, like I said, I'm not great at these games. Since I finished it, it must not be too hard! :)
