you should change your logo, this is the font of Gears of War, which is not only a terribly overused and tasteless font but also likely not well recieved by epic games if you have this on a commercial product. Alteast change some of the remarkable letters like the G

some of the effects with soft glows etc and the coins do not fit the style of the rest of the art

The healing wells are not as obvious what they do
At some point i didnt know if i was actually progressing the right way
and felt discouraged to progress
Interface on monitor should be curved, feels odd
Sometimes it was impossible to jump to the left, also jumping feels delayed and not direct
What i liked were the sounds and the hit effects, the art in general is fine, but environments would need some extra details to look not too repetitive. the swarms of flying monsters were cool at first sight, but you used them too often and without adding something afterwards, the story with the hand and all is cool too. Keep it up guys !

here some feedback, i hope you can do something with it

- things happen way too slowly, introduction of enemy types, getting a second weapon , seeing the "shop" - the player is no baby, the first 15 minutes are your most important to make the player stick, show something cool

- the level feels like a drag as a cause. Why am i doing this again ?
For money ? What can i do with the money ? I dont know yet. Money feels 100% worthless until you know what you can do with it. Even if you know, if things you can buy are not exiting, players wont be happy to get money. If you name it "greedy guns"
money needs to feel amazing. Also dont spam coins so hard, less means its more valuable.
Make levels shorter or add more undisruptive text from hand

- challenge, you need way more enemies in there, its way too easy and it feels boring as a cause. So what if the player dies, he can respawn, make it hard. Challenge gives a aesthetic, meaning player will feel something while playing. Put way more and more varied enemies from the very start on

- weapons, if you make a shooter, that gun you start with should do something special, make it bounce from a wall or anything, its very unspecial, it feels good due to the sounds and vfx , same for the rapid firing one, but the effect and gameplay is bland. if you have 15+ guns, those were ok, else make them more special somehow. Also the rapid firing one is a plain upgrade, why would i still use the first ? make both worthwhile

Also you gotta work on the core gameplay, the customization and everything all looks nice, but in the end youre just shooting a with your gun on a cooldown on others without an objective. There is a lot of depth missing that ultimately makes the difference

One advice from a fellow designer
DO NOT give out all parts for premium instantly
(do you buy 6 parts for the price or all of them? That changes it of course)

If you give out all the things, people quickly lose interest
progression is what keeps the player motivated, give it all and theyre bored

If you d ask the player what he would want, then he will say "I want all the parts" but thats not whats the best for him and not what he really wants.

People want the the game simply free but not free to play. People tend to forget that making free to play work is a huge effort and comes with a lot of burdens.

Looking nice so far!
How did you make the screens go into that lightbox mode when clicked ? Is that custom or can you do that with normal indiedb tools ?
