Haha. I have never played katana zero, just looked it up and now my confidence is crushed! Haha. Gave me some cool ideas though. Thanks!

Edit: btw thank you so much for rating! It means a lot!!


It is a really good and polished game. I really enjoyed playing it. I am not that good ad avoiding the loads of bullets but i think that this is a skill problem xD.

Really good game!

Thanks so much!! I plan to update it where it is a bit more balanced. Glad you enjoyed it!!

Thank you so much for the review and follow!!! Your too kind! :D much love to you! I plan on working the rest of the month to try and push an update with some more balanced gameplay and a few more enemies so keep in touch!!! :D


Hi! I'll be playing Y E L L O W - J A C K E T tomorrow on stream along with several others games from the jam at 3:30pm EST. I'll be talking about any interesting design decisions as I play, and suggesting improvements if any come to mind. Please feel free to join me live, it'll be extra fun to chat together about your game while playing it :)


Can't wait! :DD thank you so much again!


Here's the segment where I played your game! It has really lovely visuals, I'm sure people have told you that before though haha

I liked your take on the one mechanic theme, the game has enough going on with just movement that players won't miss having to control their shooting at all.

I'm looking forward to seeing wider roads on the next version!

Thanks! I think I am going to aim to finish it for the Game Off jam since the time constraints of this jam fit within that one as well


moonshot – noun

  • an extremely ambitious and innovative project

Just aim to turn your game into an MMORPG  in less than 3 weeks and you're set!


haha. With full character customization, open world, neural network ai. Psh, three weeks, that's just the first day girl! Haha. 


Your video is ready and available on YouTube.

I remind, that your game can go to the next stage, and get a full review with analysis, so don't forget to subscribe to the channel.

Absolutely! Thank you so much! I want to do a postmortem update within the next couple of weeks wherein I plan to expand the player area, tweak the difficulty, add a couple more enemies, a boss fight, and a bit of story. Nothing crazy. Would it be okay for me to message you with that update? :)


Of course, we are looking forward to it, it should be interesting ;)


This game was so much fun =) not GREAT at bullet hells but definitely love em loads xD though towards the end (my last run) I felt like I was getting better at the game haha!!! Will definitely hone my skills some more off recording left a follow and keep up the good work! Lemme know of more games in the future!!

Thank you so much for playing! Yeah I have a post mortem blog laying out my ideas for this project. Mainly I am going to tweak the difficulty a bit, add a couple more enemy's, small story and a boss and make it a short little game. Will definitely keep you updated on the progress! Thank you so much for doing a video on it!!! That is awesome!! :D
