I had a chance to play some but not enough to make a solid judgement yet. I know I like the theme, graphics, music, and the concept of the game is good. But I'm still not sure what to make of the gameplay to determine if theres any issues or not. I don't know if its me or the game itself or if I just gotta play more to get better, I'm still trying to figure out but I only played about 25 mins so far. 3 levels. I like many things about the gameplay but I sense some things could be more smoother such as the shooting. You swipe to move the bat and the bat drifts with momentum. You shoot by tapping but the bat only shoots in set directions, like diagnally but not straight down or up. I would love to see an update where the bat could shoot in any precise direction, at any angle instead of set limited angles. The bat drifting looks and feels realistics as far as physics go, but it makes it tough to hit bugs because of the set shooting angles. The bugs also move pretty damn fast and are pesky. I wish the levels had some sort of minimap or map at pause for each stage or something for a little better guidance.

Those are just some early impressions. The game does have a super stylish feel to it though. I'm sensing a few issues that could be adjusted or corrected in an update but at the same time I like the game a lot and its kind of addicting. Cool theme to it. Still no final judgement on this because I'm getting more and more used to it all each time I play so some things could be just a matter of getting a better feel for it.

Thanks for the first impression freedog!

I will definitely work on perfecting the angle issue. The shooting angle is currently constrained not to shoot under him and a bit more. This will be perfected for sure.

I like the idea of possibly having a map screen at pause. I will add something like this to my next update. I think I just got too good at the game, I forgot how challenging it could be.
