A downloadable game

Soppel is a top down bullet-hell game by Faxdoc about descending a pit of trash and garbage. Fight mechs and robots in an attempt to find out what lies at the bottom. 

Controls: 

  • WASD: Move
  • SPACE: Jump over bullets
  • LEFT CLICK: Swing weapon
  • RIGHT CLICK: Special 


One year ago I made this small game but couldn't release it due to some complications.  It's still not finished, but I still feel like it might be worth uploading.

I liked this game, I would definitely recommend to someone who just wants a short game to play quickly. However, I found the default screen shake to be a little too much. Also, for some reason the higher difficulties

didn't really feel any harder. They WERE harder (I died much more frequently on hyper), but for some reason it just didn't feel that way.

Awesome game. I'd recommend putting some unlocks earlier for people who have a lot of trouble with the difficulty-- I had a very hard time getting my first clear on normal, and I think the experience might put off people with equally poor skills and a lower tolerance for frustration.  Specifically, you unlock two weapons on your first normal completion (unless I did something weird I didn't realize) and one of those (probably the knife, since it's more obviously not 'better' than the sword) could be a reward for beating the second level instead. A gun would be more thematically appropriate as an unlock there, but doesn't fit the style too well in the PC's hands, and maybe there isn't one in the game yet (idk, I just beat normal and not even the void yet).  Also, I got a 47 combo, but I didn't get the achievement-- maybe it's because I hadn't finished my first run yet?  It wasn't on my winning run, it was a few times before that.

I really enjoy this game. the best part about it was the overall design of it. The amount of detail put into this game is really impressive it kinda reminds me of Nier. Keep up the good work!

is bottomless trash (my opinion)

Hello, I work on a small podcast where I like to interview indie dev's and their projects, would you like to do an episode? My contact info is on profile and link to my channel.

IMMAGINE IF THERE WAS AN UPGRADE TO YOUR SWORD ABILITY SO YOU CAN THROW YOUR SWORD IN THE CURSOR DIRECTION LIKE A BOOMERANG THEN IT SPAWNS BACK!?!?!?!!?

gud game but i keep getting cornered and for the jump ability i dont know where i land meaning that i could accidentaly hit a bullet falling down i think you guys must make the air time of the jump longer cuz i mostly use block with sword that depletes my energy

pretty fun game but i think it could be improve

the energy bar is really not stand out from most thing so it's really hard to tell if you have enough energy to use special move

i think it should be bigger and have some bright effect when close to 0 energy

and personally i think there should be some indication of where you will land when holding jump

unless you want that to be part of the skill you want player to learn i think it would be really nice

Hello, I just tried this game. I think this game is very good, but there are also some areas that need to be improved. For example, when I indulge in attacking the enemy, I can't distinguish the enemy from me. I think you can highlight the characters controlled by the player. If there are too many objects on the picture, I will become dazzled. And, I think you may need to expand the scope of the character's maneuverable actions, because otherwise, the barrage launched by the enemy is difficult to dodge, and I can only run to the corner to avoid these bullets.

Hope this game will become better!

By the way, my highest score in ordinary difficulty is 1700. This game may be difficult for me.

If you're having a hard time telling what's going on, you can turn down/off screenshake/hitlag/chromatic aberration in the settings. For dodging the enemies, you can jump over their bullets or right click to destroy them if you have meter.

Try right clicking to attack enemy attacks.  It works well.  Dodging is not necessary, at least on normal, except for lasers but there are never too many at once.

did a no hit on normal after 212 attempts lol. maybe hard mode next or is that too much..?

Wow that's amazing, good job. Hard mode would be impressive, and there's also leaderboards on the gxc version if you wanna go for highscores. 

nice.

(+1)

amazing, it just has so much style and the controls feel great. The unlocks and the end of the stage add a whole layer of complexity

I really like it

good but too hard

u can download it if u dont need ur pc anymore, CAUSE U WILL SMASH IT 

I think so.

Really good but, it's way too hard. I mean, I enjoy a good challenge but not when Level 1 is so insanely difficult...

Wait how did I miss this?? I remember your prototype from the bundle it was super cool then and it's super cool now!! Nice work!!

does this work on Mac?

i can't figure out how to counter exactly so i'm struggling with getting those curses/blessings.. does anyone know how that system works?

(+2)

Hitting an enemy during or right after it has attacked triggers a counter.

thank you! also how do you trigger where it says "hyper mode" that ends when you get hit?

(+1)

When the special meter that builds from hitting enemies is fully filled.

I really like it

Very fun game. Great work! 

someone who installed it can confirm that is not a virus?

:?

You're good to go

This was really dope Faxdoc! The game was really engaging, plus the music choice is banging.

I really like it! it's really clean, but sometimes there is a big lag spike.

Really cool tho! I'd like to see it in the future :)

not going full screen, i have a high res small screen so it takes up like 2 inches how do i get it bigger

Does pressing f3 work?

I share with you my playthrough of SOPPEL for Itch.

Sorry for taking too long to upload.

I wish your success in your indie game journey.

The game has a fantastic gameplay which merges keyboard and mouse gameplay at its finest. Unfortunately it took me hours to beat it and I am now making a video for DaniEmpire Personal Computer where I post my PC playthroughs which doesn't have to do with either Steam or Epic Games. The game is one of the best indies I had played on Itch. Congratulations for your hard work. May Soppel 2 come with a man protagonist and guns.

This game is incredible. This is not just some casual indie game that I'll delete after playing it. I'm determined to complete it and try my hand at a speedrun.
