Great fun! The art is simple but very effective. I like the ending.

There was a slight tendency to die without knowing exactly what happened.

Once I figured the game out, it instead became absurdly easy. I got all upgrades and kind of stood around waiting for the ending and occasionally buying health.

The voice acting is good. I need to do that for my next game jam.

Thanks for the review.

Yes as it was a game jam I didn't find the time to give any feedback for the game over, so for a 72 hour game it just exists to serve it's purpose. I'm working on an expanded version that fixes this as well as adding challenges you can complete. This means if you struggle with the game there are challenges there, and if you figure out the holy grail of upgrade order and technique there will be challenges there for you too. There is no wrong or right way to play the game, but the additional objectives will serve to challenge players of all skil levels.
