You've wandered through the deserts up to exhaustion...

...but it's not enough to outrun your past sins.

Surrounded in all directions, nothing to bribe them with, nothing to help yourself with.

Except one, last, bullet.

0.5:Added Aura and two more upgrades. Slight more waves. Slower bullet, more enemies, and slightly higher upg prices.

Interesting idea, looking forward for the rest!


nousername010 2020-04-28 14:00

thanks!


GAMELEGEND 2020-04-28 15:31

I like getting a big group of enemies and then move in way that lines them up and take out all of them with one bullet


Timo 2020-04-29 06:02

It’s already fun, I like it!


nousername010 2020-04-29 10:50

@GAMELEGEND Haha, sometimes i do that too, it's the easiest way atm.

@Timo Thanks once again! I appreciate it.


nousername010 2020-05-04 14:04

For those still checking this project, I'm gonna get off my little procrastination break tomorrow and hopefully post an update. I really want to finish this, and Initial D can wait.


CubicleHead 2020-05-05 18:32

Can I recommend slowing down the bullet

I find it hard to rotate in time

Cool game


nousername010 2020-05-06 23:17 (Edited)

Thanks! After some time testing, I also thought the same. The next update will have a slightly slower bullet, alongside a few other tweaks.


GAMELEGEND 2020-05-06 23:22

How many types of enemys were you going to come up with


nousername010 2020-05-06 23:55

Currently, there are four types of enemies: the normal one, the shooting one, the fast one, and the giant one. I don't think that will change any time soon, since I'll have to rework the entire wave system if it comes to that.


GAMELEGEND 2020-05-09 15:14

I have been wondering what are the rotations


nousername010 2020-05-09 23:44

The value of rotations is how many times you can change the direction of your bullet, which is the number displayed on the screen.
