Cute, I like it
Great vid man, I really appreciate the feedback and I'm glad you like it. I'll look into keybinds and either an online leaderboard or a personal one at least. I'll let you know when it's updated.
Pretty cute, the music is catchy, and it runs perfectly under WINE on linux.
Alloyed brings up from strong points, but it's a competent game.
* too easy for too long, by the time I started to need to pay attention I was already out of it
* the blocks _almost_ fell in time with the music, which was a little disconcerting. sort of an explicit sync would have helped
* it seems like an ideal strategy would be to just circle the arrow keys really fast. Adding mechanics that didn't make that true, like a "blocked just in time" combo, would have made it more compelling to play
Thanks for the recording, I have made spawntimes static and increased the rate they speed up.
I've worked with timing it to the music but it never felt quite right.
as for mechanics, I thought of having a block meter which depleted when you held a key to block, and restored while not blocking, but I decided that I wanted to leave the game simple and light.
