The entrance is on Gamejolt !

Hey guys,

My name is whiteclaws , I'm the CEO of WhiteclawsStudio and I make game using ... Erm ... Let's skip this crap and go right in the subject , shall we ?

So I made a game for GameJolt 9th Competition , it's my first one and I'm happy to present you
Bullet Hell ; The game ! ( Controls ; A/D/H !)

Before starting the babble ... here's the link !


I'm doing this with matwek , a very talented artist that lurks the TIGStreets ... A lot of you guys might know him ...

It's a game made in pretty much one week ... It's a bullet hell ( Captain obvious was here ! ) The main mechanic is that you can grow stronger by holding the H button but your collision box grows bigger too ... You need to get that boss health to 0 ...

There's an easy mode cheat but It's deactivated for the moment ...

Leave me some basic feedback and tell me if the difficulty is too hard , and if you get that white bar to 0 then tell me your time ...

Thanks for all , guys !Whiteclaws2013-03-10 17:40:52

This game puts the "Hell"...in bullet hell....Its a little like watching the tumble dryer while having your thumbs screwed...and my head is tilted to one side as i type this....very difficult,,but I did persist....and do have that "just one more go" feeling..
As long as I can move left, right and fire, I'm Happy...

@Whiteclaws
little awkward with the key positions, which didn't help the control. Although my control was bad!! very addictive yet frustrating.. did want to get that white bar to 0 - bar seemed to go fuller !!! mmm I wasn't very good was I.. very hard game,, but I did want to keep trying .. mineet2013-03-09 02:42:20

Nice game, but a little easy if you find "the point"

I didn't get it sorry. First the keys were not intuitive, I had to go back to see which keys to use.

The flashing was very disrupting.

The actual game play I didn't understand, basically you can't dodge between bullets and no matter how fast you move to the left you will die when the first bullet hits. No matter how much I shoot I don't see it having an effect on the enemy. I love the circular gyrus feel but at the moment I found that game to be frustrating and not in a good way. I hope that helps you to refine the game, looking forward to the next version.czar2013-03-09 08:54:03

I have my record: 1,35 at the first dead.

@czar he put the keys in his post

- The keys are A/D direction keys and H to fire (still button pressed to increase firepower).

The enemy dies? All the time I was shooting him with max firepower and never dies. Kuso2013-03-09 07:59:48

@kuso, yup I was aware of that. Hence "I had to go back to see which keys to use.". No probs.

Yeah, for the first couple of sections you can just kind of sit in the right place. I think the progression of the game could be improved but yeah.. when it's for a comp where you have 10 days or so to make an entire game it's a little hard to fine tune gameplay to everyones tastes!

You should post your progress on gamejolt.

EDIT: forgot to mention, I do like it!Tommyttk2013-03-09 13:15:52

@czar , @mineet ,

The boss HP is the top bar , I'm putting a little text to display it in the other version , the point of the game ia to avoid between the bullets , and the controls were changed many times

What do you guys suggest ?

@Whiteclaws
thank you for the reply
yes think i was looking in the wrong place for the boss bar. I agree with czar that its hard to dodge the bullets, although I understand there is 'gaps', which i couldn't get through.
I was watching where my fingers where placed as it didn't feel natural, and I kept pressing A and S instead. using the little finger didn't help...
good game though, impressive that it was made in such a short time too.
