Kill the boss, cowboy

Kill the boss, cowboy.

You start with only one bullet.

When you aim at enemies, they get out of the way. They get scared. If you aim at the boss, he'll grab a weapon and shoot you.

Kill as many bosses as you can.
Survive as long as possible.
Get ammo from the deceased.

Controls:

  1. MOVE: WASD.
  2. AIM: Hold SPACE
  3. SHOOT: LEFT-CLICK.
  4. PAUSE: ESCAPE

Gameplay

Draw your gun with SPACE and aim at enemies to scare them away. Even with no bullets, your gun is still useful. If you aim at a boss, he'll get a gun and shoot you.

Don't let enemies touch you. Don't let bullets touch you. When you think you're done... there will be more.

    Challenging game! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the games from the GM48, if you’d like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/kfb6IM-P_cA

    Neat game. Aiming your gun at people to slow them is really cool idea. I also like how you can kill people by making them stand in the way of the boss bullets. Unfortunately the theme feels a bit weak considering how much ammo you can collect.

    The graphics look pretty nice. The visual style is cool and remains consistent throughout the game. The audio is good. I really like the shooting sound effect.

    The music is really nice, but there are some things in the gameplay that bug me
    The movement speed isn't well adjusted, so if I walk diagonally, enemies always approach me :/
    It's kinda hard to walk, hold space and click to shoot (ok, maybe it's because I'm using the notebook's touchpad)
    You start with one bullet but then you get like, 8 ammo, and it's no longer a one shot game... maybe if you limited to one bullet with you at a time it would fit the theme better

    You had a really great idea dude, scaring people by aiming at them, even when you don't have bullets, I've never seen it before and I think it's awesome.

    Other than that, interesting game, even if it's a little too simple for being one of the better ones. I really liked the music.

    Great little game! I was very delighted to see bosses have to go find ammo as well as the fact that the bullets they fired could kill other baddies. Kiting them into flying bullets was really fun!

    This could really evolve into something special!

    Fun little game, but I really wish the game was faster! It feels so slow, so at some point the challenge is completely gone. The game doesn't seem to get too difficult (or too slowly). Got bored after killing 28 bosses. Also, too bad the background is just... a background. Would have been nice to have some cover (trees, benches, for example) while making the game faster.

    Very nicely put game. It does the theme justice, and it is also very fun. Even the tutorial was fun, so good job on that. Loved the bullet trails, and the lasers too.

    I loved that every time you died it gave you a score report telling you what you accomplished, a very small yet subtle detail. Props for that brother!

    This was a great idea! Loved how running out of ammo was necessarily the end. I liked the graphics. Simple but they did the trick. I liked the music too! Made the game feel tense. Nice job!
