I quite enjoyed the demo, satisfying gameplay, cool weapons and the jetpak jumping over walls is a nice mechanic that brings something unique to this genre with a bazillion competing entries.
The game is a bit thin at the moment and honestly, the single music track on an endless loop gets old before long. I muted the music and put on some death metal instead, like God intended. \m/

Played the native version from itch.io and it runs great, barely uses any resources at all. The immortal champion Logitech F710 gamepad gets the job done as usual. I imagine it would run swell on the Steam Deck.
Note that it doesn't support wider than 16:9 aspect ratios properly, another case of the classic Unity problem with scaling against the X-axis. If I had a cookie for every time I've seen this, I'd be dead from hyperglycemia thrice over.
