Feedback from the experts

Christer Kaitila: In my imagination, it felt like I was screaming in panic, abandoning my post and going AWOL, running from battle and into the line of friendly fire like a cowardly fool! I deserved to be blown to bloody pieces over and over, this punishment of Sysiphus! I felt the chilling dread of impending disaster as I ran from my problems and to my inevitable doom! I have succummed to my eternal repeating demise, all for fear of turning and facing the future! Nice.

Nathan Lie: Neat game with the intriguing contrast between the bleak setting and the over-the-top physics. Between the music and the eventual plethora of obstacles appearing onscreen, it's quite the adrenaline rush. This game could be improved greatly with some improved visibility of the crosshairs/mouse position so it's easier to tell what direction you're aiming, especially amongst the bombs and projectiles cluttering the screen. Locking the mouse to the browser window could help as well too - I found myself clicking outside the window as I swept the mouse around trying to dodge incoming bombs.

Joep van Duinen: Great job - love the gruesomeness - Great music, who created it? Suggestions - the barak is a bit to strong and hard to beat - you could speed up the bullets to make the shooting more responsive
