Really loved this one, surprisingly engaging despite the limited mechanics. I'm pretty sure I died on level 12 more times than the whole rest of the game combined though

I finally found my way back to this after many months of meaning to play through. I did it! Got to the 13th island, and that little gem spree was really nice and fun  :D

This was delightful. It's just pure, simple video game packed with small joys and moments of surprising nuance. Took me a bit to realize how small my hitbox really was. I feel like my recent foray into Touhou gave me some training for Jellyfish Archipelago, and not just for the more obviously bullethell-like levels!

The level with the jellyfish walls (11 I think?) was the toughest for me. That's when I made the hitbox realization. I also found it was easiest if I took a path that required the least amount of stopping, which started by going left, and took a pretty twisty path through the middle and back again... How intentional was that? It was brilliant regardless! Very cool use of the jellyfish as insta-kill walls that don't block other jellyfish, too.

Oh and this level is extremely John:

Surprised this wasn't a submission to touhou jam!! really made me stretch my bullet hell skills for those last few levels, the escalation of jellyfish and how they're used in the levels feels perfectly paced. Real clean jam entry here!

Deathless up until level 10 and then extremely NOT deathless

Fun, simple, and extremely nostalgic!  I love the cute visuals.  Unfortunately I wasn't able finish the final level, but I had a good time getting there!

This is definitely the cutest game I  had in a very loooong time. I only managed to reach lvl9 as it was too difficult for me to beat it

Amazing! Reminds me of simple bullet hell/maze navigation games I enjoyed in retro arcades way back when. It's just the essentials of "get items, avoid getting hit' but it manages such tension despite being forgiving enough that you effectively have infinite 'lives'. And the homemade sfx are adorable and lend to the cute feel of the game.

This is great! I made it through, but had to swear a little.

Nice work!
