2 unique game experiences in one game, awesome graphics and music, whats not to love :)

hey thanks buddy 👊👍❤

Very cool game, really like the graphics and the gameplay.

thanks Beedles! :) 

release this as a template!

of course. I always do 👍

A really nice game jam entry!

I think you scoped perfectly on this. Not too long that people won't play it all and not too short as to seem, well,  too short.

The FTL-style boss battling felt really nice. Though I did prefer playing as the starship (that may be my low attention span talking though). The movement felt pretty fluid. I did use all my missiles at first thinking they were my main attack - before realizing if I pressed up I would shoot out my much weaker actual main attack.

The only glitch I noticed was one that was mentioned on your (AMAZING PLEASE JOIN US) Discord, which is playing one right after the other makes the game really slow for some reason.

Nice job Xander!

Hey thanks for the feedback. I'm going to look and fix that slow-mo bug and resubmit, I think I know what's causing it. I'm glad you liked the game, I was worried it might be borrowing due to the limited attacks for the ship and slower click and wait mechanics of the boss.
