    Sweet - love the music, top notch. And great simple communication of a story without the usual excessive pontification.

    Works great. I like the art and love the music. Reminds me of Super Metroid.

    Apr 25, 2012 @ 8:01am

    This is excellent! The style is pretty out there. I felt like I was playing an old school adventure game at first. I really liked the animations. The pacing feels a bit slow, but none the less its a good game.

    Apr 25, 2012 @ 10:49am

    Beautiful ^_^. I wish I was given an objective, as I was just wandering around, exploring for the heck of it - also I wish there was a way to regain health. Nice atmosphere.

    Good old school feel, and really nice art effects - the spores exploding when they die, and the locks... er, unlocking! Great!

    Orni says ...
    Apr 26, 2012 @ 8:44pm

    I would have loved this as a child on a gameboy or snes or something

    such a classic experience - well done :D

    your source code link is broken btw.
    please fix that

    pgil says ...
    Apr 27, 2012 @ 5:25pm

    Whoops. Yeah, I'd uploaded a new copy of the source because the old one had the wrong readme. Guess I forgot to update the link. Fixed!

    Cute ending! Nicely designed map as well! Really good!

    Bam. Definitely the most COMPLETE entry I've played. Music fit, lots of baddies, great graphics, good balanced gameplay, story, everything. Perfect entry minus innovation and humour. I also rated fun a 4, everything else 5 stars.

    Apr 27, 2012 @ 6:46pm

    The limited graphicstyle is really nice. It would be a lot easier, if the movement is free.

    CappaGames says ...
    Apr 27, 2012 @ 9:38pm

    Good job. Don't know how you did all this in 48 hours, this is a lot of content.

    Can't get the music out of my head! Nice game, thanks!

    mimshwright says ...
    Apr 27, 2012 @ 10:25pm

    Great work! Very impressive. You got a lot of gameplay out of a short time. I love the graphics and music.
    My wife was urging me to make a game about serving the queen ant. She'll be excited to play it.

    johnfn says ...
    Apr 28, 2012 @ 3:58am

    Whoa, it's like this game was lifted straight out of the SNES era. And I mean that as the highest compliment. Excellent work. So impressive.

    chambers says ...
    Apr 28, 2012 @ 6:02am

    Awesome pallete and background graphics, music and sound effects were good and very fitting to the game style!

    I loved the explosion animations and also how the keyholes worked!

    I'm not sure if I understood what happened at the ending, but it I did, then the ending was awesome XD

    Draknek says ...
    Apr 28, 2012 @ 4:11pm

    Love the graphics! The gameplay wasn't particularly fun, but I enjoyed the ending.

    Broxter says ...
    Apr 29, 2012 @ 2:05am

    I absolutely loved the music and the pixel art. I felt like because there were so many spores to kill that it got very repetitive, although I enjoyed the story aspect and for the time limitation, it's a decently lengthy polished adventure.

    Hazematman says ...
    Apr 29, 2012 @ 4:52am

    Very very cool! I have to say I really loved the music and the artwork! The only problems I had were that the collision detection was only for the bottom half of the ant, I think it should have been for the whole ant, and it would have been a lot cooler if there was an actual sword attack animation instead of the particles. Other than those two things, I really liked this game!

    BNeutral says ...
    Apr 29, 2012 @ 5:43am

    That ending D:

    summaky says ...
    Apr 29, 2012 @ 9:40am

    It is hard to believe that you've done this in just 48 hours. The mood is excellent and that music, oh the music! I really enjoyed it and the only complain I have is that is too short :-P

    naufr4g0 says ...
    Apr 29, 2012 @ 10:05am

    Very nice game! Love the good pixel art graphics and the music fits well the game. :)

    Nice Job! I got to save the queen! Nice audio and graphics.

    Jiggawatt says ...
    Apr 29, 2012 @ 12:32pm

    One of my favorite entries in the audio department. The songs really create mood.

    marudziik says ...
    Apr 30, 2012 @ 9:36am

    Audio is astonishing. Great work!

    May 1, 2012 @ 2:37pm

    Fantastic game with beautiful visuals and great ambiance. The ending gave me a bit of a chuckle, too. My biggest complaint? The controls. When holding down and left I expected to move on a diagonal or at least a zig-zag pattern. Other than that though, a great entry.

    seagaia says ...
    May 1, 2012 @ 3:04pm

    Nice and complete, nice aesthetics and music (though the spores look funny). The collision box was non intuitive though, and the enemy placement at times felt gratuitous. Also no diagonal movement.

    onehandclap says ...
    May 1, 2012 @ 4:14pm

    Oh... wow! Slick and good looking and sounding, great job!

    Tourgen says ...
    May 1, 2012 @ 9:58pm

    great game. I suppose the end was inevitable but it was still pretty cool. I loved the sprite work and the music.

    mooosh says ...
    May 2, 2012 @ 2:08am

    this is on of my favorites for sure. the palette and graphics are top notch.

    Thotep says ...
    May 2, 2012 @ 9:10pm

    Nice graphics and interesting choice of colors. I liked the "story" as well!

    Vilborg says ...
    May 4, 2012 @ 5:45am

    I was certainly not expecting that!

    May 4, 2012 @ 2:58pm

    Perfect. Awesome on so many levels.

    dustmyte says ...
    May 9, 2012 @ 8:25am

    What a fun little adventure! Sweet palette and graphics. The effect animations are amazing. I commend you for writing new music for each screen, and each of these loops is well orchestrated. You seriously got a lot done in 48 hours! Respect.

    May 13, 2012 @ 12:15am

    Excellent visuals - great game!

    KevinWorkman says ...
    May 13, 2012 @ 4:07pm

    This is really fun and well-polished. Some minor things like getting health back and being able to move diagonally would have been nice, and upgrades and different enemy types would take this game to the next level. Great work.

    Toast says ...
    May 13, 2012 @ 4:23pm

    Cool game.

    dr_soda says ...

    I think this pretty well captures the life of an ant, really. Nicely done!
