Wow! Love how the glitches interfered with gameplay. Especially love the decision for the game over scene to terminate the program :) Theme was really well put together, found myself just shooting randomly for the sound effects.

Felt like this should have ranked way higher just on the design choices alone. Gameplay might be unbalanced(?) but Design-wise this was pretty cool.

Thank you, glad you like it! Yes, gameplay is totally unbalanced xD To be honest I tried to unbalance it on purpose, just to be sure that the judges could experience the fatal error without spending an hour playing... but I admit that I made it way too unbalanced even for that goal. I'm thinking to rebalance it and maybe add some minor feature when I have time :) And also share the project with the community, maybe some unexperienced user could find useful see some macros in action.
