"LZR" is an Endless-Runner with Synthwave/Retrowave aesthetics.

This is my very first game. Have fun !

I really like the game, but there's a few things that need tweaking:

  • Some sort of tutorial would be nice, I had no idea that I could duck by pressing down and died by lasers the first 3 runs
  • I sometime started a level with a bullet floating right in front of me so I died instantly
  • There are places where the road gets smaller, but I've had soldiers with guns right behind that, making it impossible to dodge the bullets so you always die

Thank you,  I didn't expected such fast feedback :).  I am aware of this issues and will fix them in future updates. 

I like to check the newest games on itch and leave some feedback :) There are some really good games being made that maybe never reach the  "hot" section so this way I get to play them haha. I like playing loads of games for a few minutes to try them out and the hot section doesn't update that often, there's new games in the new section every few hours.
