What will be added:

-a soundtrack

-weapon fusion mechanic

-mutatio-err...I mean perks.

- more zones, enemys, boss...

Thank you for your reply.
In truth this game is just barely in alpha.
It also is made unbalanced in the purpose of testing the new and future features it will receive.
I'm also planing to add a delay between attacks and add more juiciness to each action done by the player, so stay hyped for future releases.

Well its not that bad really. Its nothing absolutely awesome but is also nothing really harmless. Somewhat boring i guess, like you can just spam the attack button (theres no delay between attacks) and deflect all the projectiles with the starting weapon but still. I had a slight feeling that you didnt test it too much, believe me i too always think that everything is perfect but then i discover that everything is actually absolutely terrible, so yeah test it a bit more i guess. (Also the cursor can get covered under the walls so heres that).

Hi everyone !

The update is here, now you can choose between ZQSD and WASD controls in the option menu !

Don't worry about that, it's going to be fixed in the new update.

The controls were only adapted for french keyboard.

Good to know.

Youre certainly dont give me much hope when i start the game, start the run, and discover that the "W" and "A" keys dont work (yes its the game i tried it on 2 PCs but up and left buttons still dont work). Also i bit of sounds would make the game feel a bit better, theres a tool named sfxr, with it you can quickly make up some basic sounds to place in the game.
