This was cute! It felt to me like some kind of reverse Metroid situation. Where Metroid is defined by its isolation and claustrophobia, Samus Aran out on her dangerous missions all alone in the world, with Halen you have this space adventurer character out on dangerous remote missions but then getting stuck in that isolation with a talking sword? This is a neat idea!
Boss fight was janky. Couldn't hit him with sword at all. But could beat him without moving by just standing still and shooting repeatedly.
Understandable from a smaller game. But was confused about what I was supposed to be doing. Are you supposed to just stand still and spam shooting? Because that worked for me!
