Awesome game with a great idea of an arena shootout, but are you able to make a weapon slot where you can switch between guns picked up. Also are you able to make ammo left over from say the shotgun able to have the leftover ammo from another picked up shotgun. 

keep up the good work!

Thank you for playing! :D Thanks for the suggestion too, we will analyze it! But the ideia is to keep the gameplay simple with no weapon slot, which forces player to play agressively by moving and dodging all the time to get weapons, which makes the game really fast-paced! :)


Great game with great gameplay and combat, only thing is i experience frame lag a lot. often times my game will suddenly run in slow motion

Thank you! Thanks for playing and for the feedback! We will optimize the game in future updates, optimization is always good! Obs: when you die, the "lag" is proposital, we drop the frame rate to create a slow mo effect!


great game. You should add the option of saving up the coins you get during battle, outside of the battle so you can buy special upgrades/items e.g. money magnets, skins 

Thank you so much for playing! The idea is you have to collect coins to level up and then choose/buy one upgrade, this way we can create replayability. Every time you play you can create and test different builds. But we are testing a lot of things yet and any suggestion and idea is welcome!! Thanks man! :D


Wonderful game! only issue i seem to be having is, me and my friend love a bit of competition, and the two player option doesn't seem to be working. At least, it does not activate using the enter key. Is anyone else  getting the same problem? 

Thank you!! Sorry, the two player is not working yet, we forgot to remove it from the option! But we are working on two players mode already! In the next updates it will be avaialable! And thank you so much for playing! :D


let me say this though, many casuals in the comments are requesting an easy mode and balances, however, games like dark souls and cuphead are popular due to their difficulty. So, i think you should consider leaving the single player as is, and promoting the game based off of its difficulty. Just my opinion tho.

Yes! But don't worry, we want to keep the game hard :D The "easy" mode will be just less hard haha. Thank you for your opinion, I really appreciated! ;)


this game is so god damn fun and addicting, would recommend that we get full hp whenever we level up or complete a level though :P or add a easy/normal/hard mode

Thank you for playing and for the feedback! :D Hey! Get full HP when level up could be a good upgrade! Haha a lot of people are asking for that! We will add easy mode or something like that! ;)


How do you select an upgrade? Am I just dumb?

(Edited 1 time)

Just press "E"! Nah, the instruction of the game is very poor right now! It is just in the main menu at left/bottom side, it is hard to see! But we will improve that! Thank you for playing and for the feedback!! :)


Ah thanks man! Your game is amazing!


Seems to be a Binding of Isaac clone.


Haha I would prefer to say that it is a game inspired by Binding of Isaac! :)

I like the gameplay, it's fun to play, addicting. But it's REALLY hard. I would definitely LOVE it if you devs add an easy mode.


Hey!! Thank you for playing and for the feedback! Yes, the game probably need a better balance! But easy mode could be a really nice solution too! We will work on it! Thanks! :)


Can't seem to play the game but the game seems to have previously been named SMASH.exe which avast does not like. Glad I put this on a VM first.

Yeah, SMASH was the name of our project before have a name Galaxy Champions T.V.. Hey, but don't worry! It is not a virus!! :P


Love the game, But REALLY hard, could use a easy mode pls :D


yeah i like casual games

would be definitely appreciated if there was an easy mode

Haha yeah! We can work on it! And thank you for playing and for the feedback!! :D


The challenge is what made it so special when I beat the end boss

Nice!! Congrats man!! That is the idea!

I love this game. It's got a few bugs but it's soooooooooo much fun. Thank you devs.

P.S. Overkill by Motorhead works really well with this game mwhahahahahaha

Mind you so does.

Motorhead Eat the Rich

Slipknot 555 to 666

And i'm sure so many other tunes will also work but the in game audio is the best.



Thank you for playing! I am glad you liked it!! And thank you so much for stream it too! It was really nice watching you having fun with it haha! Also thank you for the feedbacks! It all means a lot to us!! :) Cheers! :P

Got it. Hit alt + enter to switch the game back to window mode. The game doesn't like full screen for some reason.


I got into the settings for the game and tested the different Display Modes and it doesn't like full screen. The other options seem to work.

Video incoming.

Oh! Thanks a lot for the information and tips! :D

It's the same here. I've tried with duel monitors, single monitor, rebooting and still a black screen. I'm going to see if I can diagnose the fault.

Really sorry for that! A lot of people is having the same problem! We will fix it in the next update!


I really want to play this game but it seems like it's broken. When I launch it, it's just a black screen with the music playing (which is amazing, by the way). If you could please fix this issue I'll then be able to do a video on your game. Thank you.

Hello Mutant Gamer, sorry for that! It is probabily a Windows compatibility problem, try to activate the Windows compatibility mode! And thank you very much for the report! We will fix it in the next update! :)
