Feedback from the experts

Anonymous: Good: - Nice gauntlet game! - Well implemented animations. I love that you put some efforts on the details: the blood on the floor, swirling blood animation, the shaking camera, and the spotlight effect. - Good sound FX. - Nice game theme, fits with the game competition. - Good readme, explaining current bug or compatibility issues, even with game tips and tricks! - Good documentation: changelog, behind-the-scenes stories, including your journey using TypeScript. I love reading those! - Has Gamepad support! What could be improved: - It seems there are bugs that I cannot die even if my HP bar reaches 0. The HP bar keeps refill by itself after reaching 0. (Chrome 77 on MacOS Mojave) - This might be a bug but I cannot see a score or a counter showing the number of slain or returned-to-hell enemies. Only see the multiplier - Sometimes you can move outside the viewport, and it might be hard to get it back to the view since you can’t see it.

Jupiter Hadley: Nice graphics and sound effects!
