Known issues:
On occasion, the shotgun can sometimes make enemies become invincible - there is no known work around and I haven't got to the bottom of why this happens :|

I still remember this game from the first GMTK gamejam.

very impressive only issue is the weapon balancing, the uzi is too op.

Ah yeah, the Uzi and Shotgun were added afterwards for fun :)

its cool your still active on your older itch games


Freaking amazing.


Amazing game! Its super juicy with a perfect screen shake. Some games make their screen shake so much that it interrupts the gamplay but not this! Love it. 


I love this game! at first i didn't know i was able to change weapons or slow time, and it was a lot harder!


This game is a lot of fun, and I like how you are (theoretically) able to beat it without even once slowing time. But if you go this route, the boss fight will be almost unbeatable, since the particles are never removed.


I like how i've been able to progress and learn while dying in this game.


This game is tons of fun. Amazing job.
