I like this game a lot! The colors remind me of Risk of Rain, and since I'm kind of bad with shmups in general, the difficulty was about as hard as Risk of Rain. I also like the music and art! The controls are solid and the game is overall pretty fun to play.

Hey Andy, thanks for the video!
I'm glad you're liking the game so far. Can't wait til you get to the next couple of levels! ;)

Also, watching your video, I just noticed a bug on the upgrade screen!! hahahaha

Which engine you're used in development? It's Unity or something else? :)

It's Construct 2 :)
