Thanks for letting me play your game my guy. 10/10 game 👌

(+1)

An interesting play for sure and  a great idea! Thanks for giving me a chance to try it out!

(+1)

Here's my gameplay video! Thanks again for sending a review copy. Although the game seems simple at first glance, it's actually a lot of fun and a decent challenge. The large variety of characters, enemies, and weapons give an element of replay value and quite a lot to do.

(+1)

I have given a gameplay review video as you asked on my channel. I hope this helps and I honestly enjoyed your game. Keep working on it, I see huge promises in this game. I checked your YouTube channel too! I am following so I don't miss any updates. Feel free to contact me again if you have anything for me to cover it up for you. It would be nice if you did subscribe to my YouTube channel. Here is the video:

I will chip in with with a funny video about this marvellous game

Am a little late to the party but the game was very fun! I had a jump build going with double jump, boosted jump, explosive jump and projectiles on jump lol

This game is quite fun! There's room for updates or extra features but  I did like what I played!

Hey yrbiax, I really enjoy playing this game. On my recent playthrough, I attempted to change to ability key to space and then tab, neither of which worked. I thought you'd be interested to know this :)

You are right. Looks like lot of other keys dont work either. I'll try to take a look at this. Thanks for notifying me!

Edit: I just put out update. Should be working now.

I was asked to play this game, and in the time that I did, I found myself having more fun than I would've expected from a game of this style. It is very reminiscent of Altered Beast, which was an old arcade game that I used to play with my brother. The progression was well paced, and the enemies were interesting. This was a fun game to play!

(+1)

Fun game, even though I'm terrible at it. I liked it actually
(+1)

Seems cool, will probably try it.

(+1)

Good game, decent graphic, controls are good. Sadly the Story takes too long, but in general very good. It is worth it to play it. I Struggled a lot.

😊👍

This game is really good! At first I didn't think it would be that awesome, but it is quite addictive and very fun to play! I had a great time and almost forgot I was recording haha Can't wait to go back in and defeat all of those bad guys! Well done yrbiax =)

(+1)

I really enjoyed this! Music was great. I didn't get too far yet, but I might have to try again soon and get all those prisoners!

(+1)

The music reminds me of the soundtrack for the 1995 game Thunderscape

Yo this is sick! Huge Risk of Rain 1 vibes and I love it. Goodjob

(+1)

Pretty fun game! Gave me nostalgic vibes for sure. Thank you devs for reaching out!! Here's my review.

(+1)

FINALLY! The final part to this great game! Finally rounded up all the convicts and got to the end. Overall I had a ton of fun with the whole experience, didn't expect much going in but It was quite enjoyable. Thanks again for the dev for reaching out to me and good luck to you on future projects :) 
(+1)

The game is awesome and addicting at the same time! I had a great time playing this. I really liked the music and combat style. You did a great job! Btw the struggle is definitely real lol!  

PS. Thank you for providing me with a code! 

(+1)

An amazing game, I really had fun playing this. Thank you for reaching out to me and giving me the privilege of experiencing this game, it really was something else. I actually didn't want to stop playing its slightly addicting to me 😂 excellent job 👍


(+1)

FINALLY! Got a chance to play this after the dev reached out to me. From what I saw it looked interesting/fun but still didn't know if I was going to enjoy it or not. But once I started playing I honestly COULDN'T put it down! I had a ton of fun with it, It took me about two hours to complete all 7 stages and reach the final boss and beat em up. The various weapons, upgrades to said weapons and different abilities you can buy between zones and different variety of characters with different skill sets and weapons is all great and creative adding various sorts of different play styles you can mess around with! Including once you beat the game all the modifiers *called Struggle* ingame that you can adjust to add more of a challenge for a second playthrough offers even more replayability to the game making it more fun to challenge ones self after beating the main game. I didn't find the normal difficulty that hard unlike others have stated. I only died fully once and had to restart a playthrough again but on the second one I beat the game. But the game does offer an easier variant to its normal for players who are struggling or not used to these sorta games. Overall a fun experience!

It was a lot of fun. Truly. Catroony graphics, nice sound tracks, variety of enemies and simple, but effective combat. Nicely done.

(+2)

Hey I will be making video 2 of this game. What did you update again?

I  reworked ammo upgrades and made some bug fixes. I will be saving bigger changes for later update.

Ok how do I play the upgraded one 😁

Just download it again. I replaced old version with new one. It has same name, so your old save file should work with new version.

This was a lot of fun even though I'm obviously not very good at it. I love the cute little art style and the funny sound effects when the baddies go down.  I like the different heroes you can play as, the different types of weapons, and various bonuses you can select (at least the ones I saw). This is a cool game; thanks for sending me a key to play! Also, my mouth tracking wasn't working that great for this video; I apologize for that.

(+2)

Fun game. I like the enemies, they kept me on my toes. Been a long time since I played this type of game.

(+2)

Hai! This was actually pretty good! It was tough and I didn't make it all the way, lolol. ( I played for a solid 2 1/2 hours ) Here's a link to my lil video: 

(+2)

Yo, this game was challenging but I still had a lot of fun with it! Don't sleep on this game. Keep up the good work! 

(+2)

Thank you for letting me know about The Struggle of Combat!

The graphics are simple and cute. The graphics are simple and cute, and each stage is filled with tough enemies and bosses. The controls are simple, but there are many different weapons and upgrades to enjoy.

I think it would be better if the enemies had less HP depending on the difficulty level, so that people who are not good at this game can enjoy it.

Thank you for a fun game! (DeepL Translate)

Thank you for asking me to play your game! I wasn't quite sure about it initially, as I haven't played a game like this in years. But that just added to the fun! It brought me back to high-quality indie flash games when I was younger and I seriously loved every second of playing it! Amazing gameplay and nicely put-together game!

(+2)

First of all, thank you so much for ask me to play your game. Tbh, I never thought that I'll be having so much fun playing this game! I hope I'm not looked annoying to you in my video. But, that's me when I'm having fun. I never judge the game by the graphic, as long it has great gameplay, I'm sold!

(+2)

Good game! Aside from the graphics, this is still enjoyable to play. The randomly generated for each stages are what gives this game and endless fun.

Overall this is a pretty decent game. Really good job!

A crazy game, it may seem like a bad game visually but quite the opposite. It has managed to hook me from the beginning and as you progress and you get more things you want to continue playing. 

I just missed a little visual feedback on the player when taking damage. I really enjoyed it and will play again.
(+2)

I really enjoyed the style of the game!

Despite being reminiscing of something made in paint, I really think this art-style brings a unique characteristic and charm to the game!

The gameplay was nothing out of ten ordinary but really fun none the less. The mechanics worked really well and the game was properly balanced.

I think the extension for the game by adding new conditions to the game is a clever and simple way of extending the gameplay. The game certainly leaves plenty of play time to satisfy the player, and loads of challenges to overcome.

I am going to stop my own gameplay here, as it takes quite the while to complete the entire game, and as it leaves much more for those watching to explore!

In it's own right, this game is a 5/5 star project!

Good work!

Game was a lot of fun! Thanks for telling us about your game!! 

(+2)

Hello! I sat down to play your game the other day. Have to say it really fun, you couldn't tell from the gameplay, lol. Wasn't sure what to expect. later on I got the hang of it. Love the look of Struggle of Combat. So I made a video on my channel. enjoy the video. I enjoyed playing it! Have a good one!
(+2)(-1)

I'm glad you requested for me to play this game because it's soo much fun, and can get intense pretty quick! For the amount of content that is within the game, I'd say it's well worth the price tag! It's not something you're gonna annihilate in 15 minutes. I managed to get to the fourth stage without restarting on normal. The BAZOOKA was closest friend during these hard times hahaha

Great work!

(+2)

Whew! That was...frustrating! lol I made it much further than I thought I would (especially on easy  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) but I had fun. 

(+2)

I finally got the chance to play your game. I didn’t know what to expect, but it was enjoyable. Once I got to the cave, I got waxed. Still fun though.
