its fun but its really gets my jimmys going when i die 

Awesome game! Very engrossing, and easy to get addicted to. Love the mix of genres, this is something I hadn't ever pictured. Great job.

Ad an endless mode. I really want to see how far I can take my runs.

(1 edit) (+1)

this game is fun but man it hurts getting good items and upgrades and one unfortunate crit shot ends it all (btw how does the shop refreshing work)

The game was very difficult at first but once I figured out a reliable strategy I managed to get through the entire game without taking any damage. Really well made!

what strategy was it? im stuck on the first few levels.

I don't want to spoil too much, because part of the fun is finding the strategy, but I'll give some hints

1: You don't need to worry about getting hit if you know where the bullet is

2: Spells are more useful than you think

3: The more empty slots there are, the less likely you are to get shot


I advise learning what all the spells do and seeing how they work

gambling with bullets

The game is fun and addictive. Loved the 8bit style and the music.

fun

lol this is great

(+3)

I have a weird addiction to this game, it is just such a shame i have the luck of a half baked potato

(+1)

Omg I was doing so well but then I got shot at full health and died instantly, didn't even tell me it was going to be a fatal shot

you probably got crit hit and it dealt double what it would have done

Hey there, OneFourtySevenAM here, and I just played your game for a video series I have called "Indie Picks". If you're at all interested in seeing what I thought of your game, feel free to watch the video.

how do u mute the music i havent played in a while and forgot everything about this game,its also in a diffrent laguage please help

Is the biggest revolver only 9 rounds?

(+4)

pardner if you only have heard about 9 rounds being the biggest you aren't prepared for what i am about to say

(-1)

asking for updates and suggestions is pointless cuz the creator is offline... for now

if he is online he wouldn't add anything anyways maybe

if he is gonna add anything it would either be a stats screen, ( which probably already exist but you can't find it ) a hard mode, ( if the game was too easy for you lucky people ) more items, or a easy mode ( for unlucky people )

pls help game to hard give me tips pls also there is a bug with either 101% misfire and dodge or -1% misfire and dodge that you will never get hit

(-1)

One word:
Pain

(+5)

This is rng hell

yep

(+3)

i did a run without ever getting hit once!

Very impressive.

hello Mignola!

how do you get past the beginning upgrade screen

idk ask the devs

(+3)

i finally won, after all this time

(+5)

This really is a "spin to win" situation haha......ha.....I'm sry.

(+4)

...I will find you and we will play the real version of this game

(+1)

Well tell me..do you feel lucky puke?

(+2)

Does this answer your question?  *loads six bullets* *pulls trigger* *click*

*takes gun* yknow the great thing about luck *pulls trigger**click* if you belivle in it it will always be there *pulls trigger* *click* And if you don't have fear *pulls trigger* *click* then you'll be even more lucky *hands gun back*

you shall fear me, for i have the worst aim in the world

i beat the game yay

(+2)

It’s a really good game with full of potential, but the only thing I don’t like at all, is the luck, you can take 3 times at a row the only bullet you’ve placed in the first revolver. It’s really aleatory ? I don’t think so.

Ah yes, the best way to level up.

I'd like to speak with you about publishing your title but find no information about how to contact you online. Please speak with me at alex@gamesplanet.com cheers"!

(1 edit)

after a certain amount of tries it gives me a crash error message (all very similar to this), so i cant beat the game

My thoughts: The game indicates stats for a lof of things, like health, regen, bullet damage, but nowhere in the game can you actually see how much health you have (numerically), how much damage a bullet will do, what your current regen is. While the game is very simple, a simple stats screen so you could see what your actual dodge chance, health, or incoming bullet damage is would make some nice quality of life improvements so it was not just guesswork with how the skills stack, or how useful some items are / what the base stats are. For a Ludem Dare entry its quite a  nice little game, definitely worthy of experiencing.

Spoiler / Balance issue:

Once you have a high capacity revolver you can pretty much play the rest of the game without taking a hit by using insight. From there a few minor items or skill upgrades and you'll have no need to rely on dodging, misfires, health / regen again.

i love this game, makes you think the game is rng but I saw the patterns that exist with each spin of the gun, quite good actually.

It's a really rad game! I love playing it! Sometimes it'll kill the knight with out warning me i'm on fatal shot, but other wise it's the best!!! Very very addictive!!

Fun! But very dark theme. 

(+3)

Accidentally sold my gun before buying the upgrade first. 10/10 would dance merrily in the fields again.

how do you accidentally sell your gun??

that's an ending? thanks for sharing

One of my favorite games to play to pass the time, love the style and love the gameplay! Keep coming back to this game to try a whole different strategy and test my odds in this awesome game.

(+6)

OMFG YOU CAN JUST SELL THE GUN

Well this is a revelation. :|

I made quick No Commentary video and I realy like this game!Keep up the good work!

Great gambling game, really enjoyed it.

it's funny :) , very good job! 

How the fuck do I play?

(+1)

Make sure gun is in gun slot (below map), put a bullet in the chamber, then spin the chamber, then press the trigger.

Great crazy idea implemented very well into an addicted adventure of a game.
