Absolutely right! His games are consistently great.


Yes, I like shmups, too! :gun:

Thanks! :smiley:

Almost of my sketches are porting or demake.
Those lack novelty… :roll_eyes:

There is nothing new under the sun.

While I suck at this game, and probably games in general :sweat_smile:, I definitely enjoyed it. Loved how it feels like a real barrage of bullets. And slowing the ship down was an awesome touch!

Thank you for your playing.
Yes, slowing the ship down is very important feature for shmups! :small_airplane:

This has quickly become my favorite Arduboy game. I love the concept of the quick playtime, ability to replay patterns or start a new one, difficulty is perfect. Awesome job, your programming skills are top-notch!


I agree completely!
Actually it’s hard for me to play games with such a small device for long time… :tired_face:
