Mechanics UI Graphics
I really enjoyed giving this a quick play because it's very similar in play style to the game I'm working on with the exception of the setting. The weapons were satisfyingly smooth and the collision detection seemed really good. I enjoyed the top-down 3D perspective because it gives depth to the game that mine doesn't have. The game is a solid start. However, it would be nice to be able to play in full-screen and see more, as the window you play in is very small and doesn't show much. Also, the UI needs some work, as the components that make it up don't seem to work well together. You might try spacing out the components of the HUD rather than clumping them all together in the top-left.

Keep at it!

Thank PacketPirate for playing! Happy to see you enjoyed the flow, weapons and art style.

We really focused on polishing those core elements, greatly paid off. You're right the UI could us much more love. I like your idea of moving certain elements around---would have to ensure it doesn't block sight of enemies in other areas of the screen.

PM me when your top-down game is done, I'll glady return the favor in feedback.
