A note from the devs

Hello guys, Lonely Moon Games team here. We wanted to point out some stuff regards the "polished" jam version: 

Mostly, the stuff that we added are just "quick fixes" to the build:
- Gamebreaking Bug on Final boss  /Sound  overlapping fixes
- Some balancing in numbers (literally, just couple numbers.)
- Shortened intro screen and made it skippable. 

So we really encourage you to try out this build better as it just have some quick fixes and we actually pushed them around the same or 1 day after the deadline. 
The web version is indeed also the polished version.

Thank you and kind regards.

This is a lot of fun! It felt a little slow at first, but it picks up and can get plenty intense past the first small area. Love the overall design of the game. The mix of guns provides a nice variety for play styles and enemy types. 

I'm really excited to see where this goes in the future. Hopefully more enemy types and maybe even battle screen layouts(Mobile enemies with shields, ones that work in pairs, etc.)

Any chance of a downloadable Linux version?

Thank you! I could try, but I can't test it, so let me know when you're around and I'll upload it 

I'd be happy to help. I'll be checking the site just about everyday since I'm new here and still looking for new stuff to play.

Is there more content after the boss? 

I wasn't sure if I could go down the ladder-hole or not.

Nope that's all! There's a last message thanking you for playing hehehe

Aww, that's too bad! It was a lot of fun!

Great work!

Thank you Mox! :) I'm glad you liked it.

if i want it to read, better grab a book, not a game... I dont wanna play your game, becouse t takes like 5 hours, to the text to pass...so, now i pass

Sorry, I thought I wrote on the description you can actually skip the intro ny pressing ESC. I'm sorry that you found the game's not for you!


o man, im sorry, i really dont read the description very often, i first see how the game is, like, gameplay, mechanics and all of that.
Sorry about that. You should add a text on the top that said "Press ESC to SKIP", ill try your game again now. 

Dw, we made it even bigger for now until the jam stuff ends and we can polish more this version hehe.


It's Very good from what I've experienced.


Thank you!


Amazing, Great Job


I'm glad you liked it!

Can't wait to see the final project!


Thanks a lot dude!
