A very stylish way to kick of Bullet Bash! The explosion animation when you perish is especially awesome :D

Thank you (: I tried to give the game a home-grown atmosphere. I am impressed with your entry. The patterns become challenging but fair, and the dynamic difficulty is executed well. Also, though not a requirement, the code does seem very structured and easy to modify. I look forward to seeing where this project goes

Thanks, really encouraging to hear that :) Coming from "line of business development" (i.e. not the game industry), one of my defining ideas for this project was to apply a modular, component based structure to bullet hell game design (and make coming up with new patterns as easy as editing a text file, with no recompilation), so I'm especially glad that this goal seems to "come through" in the actual code structure. Thanks again for organizing this jam :)

Nice game! I think that the bombs should be limited since they will be strong. ;)

Thank you very much (: I was thinking about also making your own bombs destroy you if you get caught in the blast, so you have to be careful where you aim
