Very nice game it was well thought of and seem original. 


Started my revisit of the game, but on elite mode. I suddenly ended it after over 40 minutes of recording, i did not PLAN on recording for so long but I got lost in it xD (I suppose thats a good thing though haha). Loving the differences with the abilities that have been added. Also saw the homing missile was nerfed a tad, looking forward to continuing my adventure! =D

Thanks again! Yes, some of the op items no longer appear in early shops. Looking forward your videos :D


Hey. I beat your game in two hours on the easiest difficulty. It felt so amazing and polished that I decided to purchase it. I tried it on the normal one, and I felt like I would not handle it. At least not today. Anyway, I had a lot of fun playing your game, and I am looking forward to playing the second part when it comes out.

I recorded how I played your game on the video. You can check it below. If you want me to delete the video, let me know. However, if you like the video, I make videos for such developers like you every day. I will be happy if you subscribe.

If the video quality is bad, it means that it is not uploaded entirely yet. It should be available in HD.

Thanks for buying the game!
I will go to watch your video now. Epic thumbnail by the way :D

Hey, I was curious about something. If I were to pay you commission (I don't have a whole lot to do that with but want to support ya!) would you be capable of making me a youtube icon and banner art? Love the simple design, and with this method not only couldI pay you a little, but could use the banner and icon art to advertise the game =D

Im not exacty professional artis, but im glad you like my style :) I suppose i could try.  What kind of icon/banner do you need? 

Nothing too crazy, was thinking the design of the desert in your first area, with ASWhaler Gamer written in cactus, and the icon just being much like the cactus guy but with my headphones on him. I am a sucker for desert theme things xD

Sounds cool :D What is size of that banner?

Looking forward it!

Thanks! Glad to see you didnt die yet aside from arena :D
