Crashed for me in Chrome. But then worked in Firefox. May or may not be my system, but thought I'd mention in case anyone else experiences problems.

Very nice pixelling - the game looks great. I really like the gun smoke! But the gameplay needs a little work - it seems up to luck more than anything else whether you actually find slimes or not. I like how you can listen for them bouncing though.

Also, one time I went off the right side of the world and everything went gray! You may want to look into that.

Encountered some bugs such as http://imgur.com/jO4b3 and the character entering through wrong door (had two doors side by side, tried to open and enter the left one but instead the right one opened).

Nice art style, loving these big pixels. Does the main character have pants? Well, looking for the creatures doesn't really feel that much fun though, after killing a few I felt I was done with the game as nothing new was really happening.

Really cool! I love the graphics style, and the simplicity.

However, the gameplay is really repetitive, and I wasn't sure if something was going to happen (a boss fight? I find an item?)

Pretty good. I like how original your use of the theme is. I tried on chrome, but it didn't work, and as Waynetron said, it worked fine on firefox.

I don't really find the game too much fun as I just seem to walk around until I see a slime and then shoot. And it is not so much exploration as trial and error because of the timer. That being said, I love the layout of the game, the way the UI is above the "screen" and the long narrow layout of the screen. I also really like how the player moves around levels.

Played on Chrome and worked fine.

Liked the panning/transistions between rooms, would be cool if you could zoom out to see a map. Your pixel art would suit that :)

very nice art style, but there was not a much of a game in it. Don't know if it is intentional, but player can walk trough some walls

Well done graphic Style!

A pretty neat idea, though it could use some variety (such as the slimes fighting back in some way!). My only real complaint is that the time limit felt a bit arbitrary, and didn't really add to the fun of the game at all.

Crashed on Firefox twice, the last one froze my PC. :(

That was fun! it took me 3 tries to open it in chrome for some reason, chrome kept wanting me to "kill pages" with it. I like the graphics! nice job!

Thanks to everyone who has played and left comments. Still trying to figure out the source of the crashes which I can reproduce on my Mac, but not my windows box.

Awesome graphics, but the game itself is a bit repetitive :/

Audio didn't work for me (Safari), very pretty graphics / animation.

Nice pixel art. I killed all the slimes, but it didn't say I won or anything. Time just ran out again. Oh well, it was fun.

I really love the graphisms. But the gameplay is slow, it is really easy to get lost as all the rooms are looking like each other. The UI is great !

I like it though the gameplay is a bit slow.

Worked fine for me on Firefox. Nice graphics, the smooth transition between rooms is a nice effect too. The actual gameplay got tiring fast though. I played until I had about 50 secs left in the clock and then just gave up.

Love your graphics, but after a while the game itself became a little tasteless. (I find it great that you at least hear the slimes bouncing!) Btw it kinda breaks when i hit space at the opening screen (in firefox).

I love the slide transition. That gives me an idea. It would be cool to do a transition like Prezi.

Killing slimes without pants sure is funny XD
I really missed audio, man :/

Fun to play! It lags a bit when there's a lot of furniture to be loaded

The nav between rooms is awesome. :)

The timer is way to strict, there is no room at all for exploration. Listening for the slime was a good effect, something to explore more perhaps.

Cool art, I liked the transitions from room to room.

I like the super chunky pixel graphics! Some sound would have added a lot to the game. I also enjoyed the humor in the intro scene :)

Awesome transitions and graphics overall!

Jezzamon says ...
Sep 4, 2012 @ 6:37am

Yes! I made it with 2 seconds left.

Needs music and sound, and maybe being a bit faster though

Jezzamon says ...
Sep 4, 2012 @ 6:38am

Also: Is it randomly generated? If so, then good job!

pythong says ...
Sep 4, 2012 @ 4:53pm

i'd say, too much text in the intro. also, why can't i walk and shoot at the same time :< ?

was a good game.

Fun! Might want to change the pants color to be a little less flesh-tone... that or just turn the knobs to 11 and add some saucy time.

Cute graphics, but not very fun to play
