Pilot a rare Bullet Eater, a ship that builds power from eating the enemy bullets!
Made for the Go Godot Jam #4, along about 10 days.
The theme was "Less is More": I took a minimalist approach with the visuals, and a bit with the music too I guess (there are not a lot of instruments, mostly drums and a bass).
Mechanics-wise, the controls are quite simple, but there's a catch: you start up really weak, and has to get stronger by eating the enemy bullets (hence the game name, Bullet Eater). This ties in the theme since the player needs to get less away from the bullets to get more power. Usually I play the other way around in shmups.
So... maybe I stretched the theme a bit! But I'm satisfied with how things turned out.

Pretty cool mechanic, but if you're familiar with bullet hell games, It's pretty darn easy. I'd love some harder bosses, or a difficulty with a less forgiving hitbox.
Nice game, liked it! :-)
Fantastic Game dud Great mechanic
great game love this bullet hell adding it to the collection
Cool game. Only problem is a glitch where if you mash c on the victory after you beat a boss, it allows you to skip the next boss, and if you mash fast enough, you can skip the entire game.
I just had to drop everything when I got the notification in my mail that Escada Games released something new.
This was a lot of fun! It's another masterpiece from one of my favorite game devs.
I'm pretty okay at bullet hell games, but this has a nice ceiling for entry. It's not too hard and dodging is a major game mechanic, so it teaches you as you go. I'm going to practice this one for the next few hours and hopefully unlock everything.
Knowing this made our day... thanks a lot!
I hope we keep managing to make interesting games and deserve such appreciation :)
I believe in what you folks do, which is why I have a push notification on my phone for when you publish things. That's why I've been the near the first to comment on most of your games :)
All in all, I like all of your games but I still have dreams about the Alchemy one. I LOVE puzzle games like that.
