Played the game earlier today. I only finished the bar level. Very good quirky game with a bit of originality thrown in for the various types of enemies. I can see playing this one to the end of story mode, not sure yet about endless. Still, this is a gem and I'm glad I read the TA article to see what was coming out tonight or I would have completely missed this one.
Thank you! I might change the bandage icon so it's a bit more recognisable in the next update!

The other stages? Like the Warehouse etc? You have to beat the boss at the end of each stage to unlock the next. I made it so the game saves after you beat the normal aliens in the rooms, so you can have as many attempts at the boss as you want without having to replay the stage.

Finished story mode. That was good fun. I did get a bit spammy with my abuse of the bow&arrow since I have rapid fire thumbs. I tried endless a couple times. Currently I'm 10th in the world. Not bad. Hopefully the highscore chart doesn't end up hacked like so many other games.

Best part of the game was definitely the music. That rocked! I'm not sure ill keep on to unlock the other stuff. It pretty much seems meaningless other than getting a few more achievements. Currently I have 14/22 of them. Not too bad.

I think the game needs more levels. But as it is, it's still really good and worth recommending due to the unique gameplay & rocking retro music.

Good job. Thanks for making the game free... Though it confuses me how free games like this make money. I think this easily could be $0.99.

Thanks for the feedback. There will be more content coming in future updates, don't worry! I'm planning on introducing new story levels, enemy types, collectible items that give you stats, added depth to endless mode and more

Sounds awesome. I'll put this in a folder then so I don't miss future updates. I think I'm now 9th without buying Items and almost have enough credits to unlock the soundtrack. I may actually use the soundtrack to run to depending on how it works.

I think you should just give in and change 'bandages' to 'bread'.

Seconded. Is it possible to change the achievement that mentions bandages to mention bread though? I wouldn't want it to confuse folks.

Bread as a way to replenish health makes more sense than bandages. Then again if the face was doctored up with bandages when you use them then that actually could be quite cool... unless its already doing that.

I'm not sure about changing the achievement, i'll have to take a look for the next update if it's possible.

Played the game a little more today on endless mode (aka Arcade) in my quest for enough credits to get the soundtrack. During the wheel spin bonus thing I managed to get "Lil' Ghost (PET)". Cool. I didn't know unlockables would do that. But I don't see where to activate it for use.

Anyway, currently 8th on the leaderboard. I know I could do better if I spent some coin on the consumables... but I am on a quest for that soundtrack unlock which I'm at 29,528 so just a little under 5K to go and I'll be there and then can focus on dominating the highscore chart.

For some reason, I keep wanting to play this game. It's just... good fun.


EDIT: I figured out the pet thing. I didn't relize I had to scroll through the list to find Lil Ghost. Also, unlocked the boombox. Kind of sad it's only 4 tracks, but still, good stuff. Hopefully more songs will get added in a future update.
