Really cool game!
Loving the coop mechanics. Tested with 4 players.
Great tutorial without it I would've been a bit lost.

If you continue working on the game please:
* Increase the deadzone for the gamepads
* Give each player a different color or some kind of player indicator to more easily locate your player.

Thanks Supersmo! You're absolutely right about the controller deadzone, I was using some replica NES controllers during the jam so I didn't get to try it out on analogue controllers. It'll be the first thing I fix with an update!

Tested now with 8 wired XBox360 controllers (just by myself octopus style) and it works!
Another detail: On my computer going fullscreen with Alt+Enter gives me a black screen.

By the way what's the current known record for 4 players? My kids and I haven't made it passed the U-shaped aliens at 123 seconds. Wondering if the increase in difficulty is a bit steep or if it's just that my kids are 4, 7 and 8 years old and can't give me the backup I need. ;-)

Haha thanks so much for the feedback Supersmo! I really appreciate it. Me and a couple of friends ended up getting so far on one run that some of the enemies stopped spawning so it's possible to actually 'beat' the game in a sense - I'm planning on doing an update to the game soon to try and balance it a bit better, iron out the bugs, add coloured trails to the players - and as you mentioned, fix the deadzones :) 

Guess me and my kids will have to practice some more then ;-)

Glad to hear that you plan to fix these glitches :-)

SWEEET!

Verified that deadzone is fixed and fullscreen works with the latest update :-)

Thanks!
