Nice job for your first one!

One feedback I would give is possibly updating the art if you are able to.

Died at 26.. I think if you can in some way speed up the game over time or after some score it would be more fun. The arrows and player are slow placed at the moment imho. Anyways great job!!

The game is fun. For a first game this is good. Well done.

 

If you want to improve the gameplay, you can change the amount of arrows to be more and more over time (start with a few like 3-5).

Add one more with every wave.

Also make the player smaller and have him grow with every wave.

If he gets hit, make him smaller again.

This way you have a small margin for error in the gameplay.

 

You could also change the speed of some arrows to make them look more random.

Give them a random speed (Math.random()*speedVariation + baseSpeed) when you spawn them.

 

Codewise I would recommend you check out Phaser, which would make your projects a lot easier and does not restrict much (you can still code everything you want by hand, but Phaser helps with premade functions).

You should also structure your code a bit more.

Add some comments to help understand what is happening in a function.

This might seem overkill in a small project but it will help a lot in bigger projects if you can make it a habit.

 

Keep coding and change up your projects (always doing the same kind of game might bore you eventually).

Thank you so much, i know the art isn't the best but right now i am mainly focusing on the programming.

Thank you so much for your feedback i will definitely look into that.

Great first game. I have no critique to add other than what was already mentioned.
