What’s New?

Most of this devlog is making a lot of minor adjustments to help the game feel a bit better to play. I also added a new level and basic AI type to try and spice it up.


  • When killing someone stealthily (without the enemy alerted) or with a teleport kill, it adds 2 seconds to your slow mo timer.
  • When in slow-mo, bullets have a short time period where they move normal speed, to help you not run into your own bullets
  • Added laser indicator on turrets to display where they’re shooting at.
  • When swapping with an enemy, there’s a minor delay where you also attack them before swapping.
  • Added blue indicator (using the same image as the swap) to show if you will hit an enemy when teleporting.
  • Removed alternate bullet type – didn’t find it helpful/used much, can return to alternate types in the future if it seems useful.
  • Added some basic UI on screen to show different abilities and the keys to use them.
  • End level panel now correctly states whether you completed or failed the level. You’re welcome to everyone complaining.


Blocking has been adjusted. It now goes around in a circle, with a few small areas for bullets to slip through. Bullets will reflect off each piece. Block duration has been increased to 3 seconds, and cooldown has been increased to 1.5 seconds.

Level 3 & Heavy AI Type

There’s now a level 3, which mainly serves to show off the new AI type. They’re not particularly inventive or interesting, they’ve just a big bigger with a bit more health. Good uses of teleport chaining will help to take them down.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed bug where enemy deaths weren’t being counted.
  • Dodging through strong (grey) walls should no longer happen.


Soon I plan on adding a few features and working on polish and bugs as I find them. The feedback and bug reports submitted to the issues page will be extremely helpful in this.

Some of the features I have planned to work on soon:

  • Control remapping – to go with the new UI
  • AI upgrades to make them act more natural
  • New AI types, hopefully interesting ones that change the way you approach situations
  • More stealth mechanics?
