Am I missing something, or is it really just blindly clicking and hoping you'll win?

Nah, I had to cut a lot of features and plans the last hours, so that's pretty much what I managed to do! I'll try to make it more skillbased when the voting is over, like giving the player a 1 sec peak before starting the shooting!

The graphics are cool, but... not much of a game here it seems :S.

Interesting concept, but with serious balancing issues.

I had a chuckle at dogs as your life points.

Is killing people good or bad? On one hand, I get a "ouch" sound effect. On another, I get a golden chalice when I kill a person.

Stargoat: hehe glad you like the gfx :)

caranha: Yeah, first time speed dev'in, so I had some issues with time planning to make the game an actual game and balanced.

Killing people is good, they are the agents of the evil Mi-Go's and need to be put down for their own good, the people carry additional loot and if you get them you'll earn more life at the end of the round! :)

Not that clear on the objectives at first, but the art and gameplay choice were interesting.
