    Nice game! In the beginning I was a bit confused on what to do, but it was very enjoyable once I figured it out :)

    Fun idea, would have been more fun in practice if the gun was more powerful. The art is clean and the particle effects are smooth.

    Really interesting gameplay, I was trying to figure out what gives you more points to spend on the menu but somehow got two. It's neat how the game mechanics change when you pick different combinations; DVD icons seem to bounce when you don't have an attack and red dots appear instead that randomly destroy a DVD upon collecting. I'm glad you added the blinking ! before they spawn in so you've got a heads up that's where it's spawning. As others said I wish you added some sound effects but it still had enough juice to keep me engaged :) My high score was around 24k, thanks for making this entry I enjoyed it.

    Very good use of the DVD logo right here. I couldn't really figure out what the different DVD colors meant, but it was fun to play regardless!

    Probably the most fun I've had with a game so far is this jam. I like the upgrades at the beginning, but it did take me a couple tries to figure out what it meant. It's a simple game, but it's fun to move around, and if you can nail that, it's a great start. Particle effects are good, and I love being able to change direction when I used the boost. Don't worry about not having sounds. I played as the speedy-pacifist character and was making sound effects for it the whole time. haha that was my best setup with 71,190 points. Great job!

      Man really do be touching my heart haha, Thank you so much for the feedback! I'm really glad you liked playing it, congrats on the score! On the future i will make a way for the game to keep track of it through sessions, again thanks for the feedback, and after the GameJam ends i will probaly give some more updates to the game on my itch.io page!

    Fun little game with a cute idea.

    I didn't realize at first that there were different character options and just thought I couldn't shoot/dash for some reason.

    I also didn't hear any sound and wasn't sure if that was the game or my machine.

    The pc is very cute :D

      Thank you so much for playing my game! Glad you liked playing it haha, Yeah i unfurtunatelly wasn't able to create the sound effects in time. The menu is a little confusing since atleast at the time i didn't really knew how to make a proper controls list, but with the GameJam ending i probally will make some changes on the future! Again thanks for the review

    Loved how unique the concept is. There's always been an element of "game"ness to DVD player screensavers, so making it an actual game was a great idea.

    Fairly basic game, but I did like how you let players choose their mechanics. I gave each of the combinations a go and am fairly certain that shooting + 3 lives is the only real way to go, as I found the dash mechanic a little awkward to activate and it almost never had a positive result for me 😅

    Bit of a shame about the lack of a menu, mechanical wrapper (had to restart the game to try again, R just restarted the shooting portion and didn't let me change my powers), and all audio, but this definitely made me smile as an entry still, so nice work!

      Thanks for playing! And for the review! Glad you liked it haha, you can actually press ESC as showed in the Menu screen to go back to the Menu! Unfurtunatelly i didn't had the time to create sounds as i was alone on this GameJam :( but i will definelly be trying to add some when the Game Jam ends! Thanks again for playing and for the Review

    Interesting game, I wish it had a restart button... I included it in my GM48 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/2x0hqeP3RWA

      Thank you for playing! Saw the video :) All the buttons are included in the first Screen! R for Restart and ESC to go to the Menu again, Don't forget also you can increase or change your status on that same menu! So you can actually shoot and/or Dash. Thanks again for playing and the addition of the game on your video.

    pretty intresting idea, no clue where the theme comes in but still a nice little time waster.

    I streamed the game so if you like to watch me play it heres the vod. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/1268766636?t=00h47m03s

      Thank you so much for playing it! Really appreciate the feedback, the theme comes when you can only choose 2 out of the 3 big stats! so you will always be missing one big upgrade and will have to take the best out of the ones you do have. Thanks for the link! Loved watching it haha, and also, you can get the little red balls that the DVDs create to get points and destroy one randomly!

    Haha, Great concept, I couldn't shoot for some reason though! So I just dodged. nice controls and overall fun idea! Great work

      Thanks for playing! You had the gun and couldnt shoot or you didnt had the gun at all? Without the damage status the gameplay changes and it really is about dodging! Glad you liked it anyway

    Wow, why do you hate DVDs so much? Anyway, this is just a very basic point & shoot game. The only mildly interesting element was the stat selection thing at the beginning. I thought maybe shooting the DVDs of different colors would do different things but it didn't seem like it.

    This is what happens when you go for Laserdisc instead of DVD, they attack you all at once! Jokes aside, it was a fun game, could be even more fun with some sound effects or a music to go along with it!

      The exact experience of going for Laserdisc hehe, i was always thinking of doing sound effects for it! But unfurtunatelly i was doing it alone and couldn't get the time to do it, Glad you liked the game anyway! Thanks for playing

    So my first thought was "oh, this is dead easy...", then a hot minute in, my next thought was "oh god, so many DVDs!!!" - I like how you can choose different options to affect how you play (even if they weren't entirely clear), and I like the simplicity but great execution of this one. I would just say, for next time, some sound effects go a long, long way, even some simple ones :) overall though, good job!

      Haha, yeah the game can go to no DVDs to a full screen of then pretty fast, happy you liked it! Unfurtunatelly i'm not the most experienced with sound effects, and even then i wasen't able to make then on the time frame :( Thanks for playing anyway tho!

    Such a fun little concept. I like that you're about to choose to have a non-combat playstyle as well. Although a little basic I had fun with this.
