LD47 entry, the theme was "Stuck in a loop". You play as a computer program stuck in an endless loop. Fight viruses to get their energy and open the firewall. Then, you can choose between bonuses and malus. Each malus give you some point for picking more bonus, but be carreful! Then you loop again in the same room. Again and again.

I made a video about it, this game was fun along with the power-ups after beating the enemies

Hello! Thanks for playing! I'm a dev on this project and i hope it bring you some fun. In fact, you're playing the JAM version done in 72h but i work on it when i have the time and add a lot of upgrade/feature to it. If you want to try !

whenever i launch it, it just opens discord

Hello ! Sorry to hear that. Did you download the jam or the updated version ?

"What if the movies Cube and Tron had a child?"  This amazing Outrun/Synthwave-aesthetic game is the answer.  This Beat 'Em Up added roguelite elements that will have you chasing the leaderboards.

A small request: instead of Shift+Space, can we get a Settings Menu that allows LClick attack RClick dash?  Thanks!!

Thanks for the feedback!

You pretty much synched the gameplay loop with your narrative loop, with the reward being for both the ennemies and the player, it is for sure veyr interesting ! I liked the controls though it could be fast paced and juicy, the animations transitions also were very rough. The graphic style is good, loved the perspective and the global mood, and your presentation page on itch.io is neat as it should! I had a good time, played it 2 times, made it to 9 loops, it’s really rewarding to be granted a bonus at the end of each ^^ Also, online leaderbaord, very good job, I can only salute those who make this type of thing.

Very good entry, good gameplay, good audio, mood, and graphics!

Thanks for you feedback Kaldrin!

You're welcome !

Love the Tron vibe!


Glad you like it!

Ey! It's kind of interesting. Control isn't bad at is fun. I think it's a bit difficult at the beggining and I didn't understand which things could damage me or not. Using the bomber things to kill the other minions was fun.

I don't really like to have to choose something negative and get full health its not enough of a prize in my opinion... and you really need it and you start to fall behind. It doesn't feel great.


Thanks for your feedback. :)

If your windows warn you with Smart Screen don't worry simply use the "More info" button and run it anyway.
