Well, it kept me playing until the end. Not many indie games manage that. Nice, simple idea that was pretty fun to play.

First entry I finished to the end! Great stuff. Very fun, great presentation. No audio though?

A very strong entry. Loved it.

Thanks guys!

Refrag, sadly, no Audio :( I didn't have the time (or skill) to write my own music. I think I'll eventually get a version of the game up with some music composed by my brother, after the competition is over.

Very good, not very innovative, but polished, working and fun to play. Next time just add few sound effects :)

Flawless. Need some music and sfx but we can see is really pleasing. The whole game is so in one piece. Also level design is good. Not too hard, not too easy. I would play several levels in one seat. Congrats, this is one of the bests. Thank you for making it!

Very nice! Very polished gameplay and some excellent level design. I especially liked the forced run down a long hallway with the pink stomping block close behind. Music would definitely help, but I got through in 8 minutes and had a blast the whole time :).

Very nice graphics and solid controls. Love all the graphics effects and smooth animation/many frames. Good gameplay and nice mechanics/AI even at simplest. Feels very polished. Not really central to the theme though.

Really nice visual style. I would have liked to aim/shoot with the mouse.

Got completely caught up playing that! It's games like this that make me forget this is Ludum dare, it feels like it's production quality!

Very nice, the graphics are great and particle effects complement them. Some audio would have been great because that's just about the only thing missing from this entry, good job!

Twin-stick-shooter. Neat.

Aug 31, 2011 @ 5:35pm

Absolutely awesome! Great gfx, great colours, great play feel. I love the "locks" idea. Fan-freaking-tastic work, Noel!

Thanks everyone! Glad people are enjoying it :D

After the Compo is over I'll have a new version up with some awesome music by my brother, Liam!
