Clever! I didn't think the gimmick would effect gameplay much at first but having to stop dodging to do damage actually changed my gameplay style a lot from how I would usually play these kinds of games. I think with more enemy types to more fully explore the concept this could be really good!
this is my first participate in a jam and I loved it too much.
Bad news I couldn't add as much enemies as I wanted because of the time but I will try to do better next time.
Now I introduce to you zombie rush a top down shooter game where you can't shoot if you are moving and running from zombies but you also can't stop shooting while you are still in your place.
I don't think it's perfect but it's good as I had no experience in making a game in this short period of time but I face problems and I solved it or took another path until I finished.
W A S D or arrows to move
Mouse to rotate the player around
(NOTE): all the assets in the game where made by me but the background music and some sound effects which was from a free pack (superpowers asset packs master).
And that was all of it so enjoy.

Pretty smooth game! Although it does take skill to survive. You can certainly update this game to have upgrades and more enemy type and that will add more replayability. I may have found a dominant strategy but it still takes getting used to it to abuse it. All in all good design and adherence to the theme.
upgrades are on their way just after the jam end I wish you liked it and gave it a fair rating.
Sorry for the late response, thought I'd check out your game after you left a comment on VacPac! Really liked the idea, animation, everything was very smooth. Couple of small points I wasn't the biggest fan of the camera zooming in the centre and I wish I had less health or the game got more difficult quicker as I ended up quitting before I lost. I would have also have liked a button press for the tutorial text I kept forgetting to press the continue text, a button would have sped this up. Good game though!
really good advices i 'm sure they will help me and I hope you liked it and gave it a fair rating.
Fun little game, like you mentioned, would be really cool with more enemies, I had fun with it. Only got to a score of 89 because I suck but I enjoyed the look and feel of everything, it was smooth
A very clever top down shooter which I found to be very enjoyable. It can have more polish but I really enjoyed this game.
