Congrats on your first game!  It's not too bad for your first project, especially from a teenager.

Some ideas to improve it:

The character doesn't immediately look like it moves, so it took me a while to figure out what to do.  I thought it was a house or something initially.  Redesign the character to look like it can move around.

Maybe a jump feature?  So if the player is in a tight spot, he can jump over an arrow.

Vary the arrows.  Stagger their deployment, randomize their speed, maybe even make them different sizes.

You're right i should probably work on the graphics and i will definitely add different types of arrows.

Space Invaders ! It's the first arcade title I thought of after avoiding my first arrow. Don't hesitate to check it out to get inspired. Some ideas :

  • Add a way to defend yourself like a shield bonus
  • Make it feels like a level was passed after a while then increase the difficulty
  • Support other keyboards than QWERTY. For instance in France we used AZERTY. To move left I press A instead of Q. But it's a minor issue as arrows can be used !

Congrats and good luck with your improvements.

Note : Is it me or is the attachment broken ? The PNG isn't displayed.
