Some Tips and Tricks

  • If you spend too much time in a wave, the witch gets bored and speeds up the monsters, but you will earn extra points during speed up phase.
  • you can deflect the green bullets into monsters and earn bonus points, it does extra damage.
  • Hit the boss directly on his head to do extra damage.

Some Thoughts

  • there was absolutely no time to work on sound fx, it would've been even more awesome with sounds and music.
  • kaboomjs is the best!! it has the most friendly syntax.
  • let me know your thoughts on the game, did you like it? dislike it?
  • I had many monster ideas and making this into an actual dungeon crawler like binding of issac, but had only 7 days.
