Nice game. Decent graphics and ... well... damn you those blue jellies. They keep shooting and you just can't kill them. Also these red jellies are making me crazy... fun game.

Hm... should I slow down those red jellies?? or make the blue ones shoot slower??
Anyway, thanks a lot! I'm glad you're enjoying it. BTW, I will upload a timelapse video soon, so stay tuned :D

Nice game, sometimes red jellies seem to push you inside a wall. I think the speed of the red/blue jellies is fine, it makes it a pretty frantic game when you're running from a bunch of red jellies!

Excellent ! Feels very tense, even though it can be 'cheated' a bit by leaving c and v pressed all the time. Pretty crazy when ble jellies shoot are you while you're surrounded by red ones !

Good solid game, expecially for only 48 hours. I liked the digging, it gave me a nice sense of exploration and discovery.

Fixed enemies pushing you to a wall :P

Movement was very jerky, but I liked the random caves and the general feel of the game. However I wish I had a way to replenish my rocks.

@stevejohnson You have, you just have to dig through walls.

Wouldn't run :( Java starts to load, then nothing. Will hold off on rating until I try it on another computer.

Tried it on another machine, and it's a pretty fun game! It gets pretty dang hard after the first floor, though. Perhaps don't introduce the blue jellies quite so quickly, and introduce the red jellies more gradually?

Not bad. I really like the generated caves. It makes them fun to dig around and find new rooms.
However I was not able to find the stairs down from the 2nd level. The level is huuge.

Wow pretty fun! A bit repetitive, and I felt it was quite easy. Damn blue Jellys. Gotta snipe those a$$ holes.
