    That was....interesting. I have know idea what I just played. All I know it was fun and I feel a little dirty, even though I am not sure why.

    Everytime that big yellow thing comes around, I always die immediately. Haha.

    Funny game. I can't beat that big ball, though.

    Hey, thanks. Pooping was one of my mandatory features from before I knew the theme. I was going to implement a snake enemy that attacks from behind, and you'd have to destroy it with the poops. Got too tired!

    To kill the big things, (or Queens), you just have to go all out! It was much easier in earlier builds, but not so much fun :)

    You've got to complete it for the ending, it's super rotatey! :)

    Thanks for playing!

    Loving the destruction of it :D

    ._. Defecation that makes sense!

    Well. This is... bizarre.

    Sex and defecation: precisely what I want from my games. We only took 31.231 seconds to inseminate the queen. Beat that!

    The music is really nice, and the game itself is hilarious XD

    Hahahaha. Thanks for your comment, VAM - fixed the critical bug, so please come back if you get a chance! Hilarious game. What's with the pooping? I could use a health meter. :)

    9.9958874 seconds to inseminate the queen??? Whaaaaaat? xD

    The first level was hard to beat until I figured out I could camp a spot just between the sphere and the attack spawn point. Really zany game!

    tastive - pooping is the health meter. When you get hit, you poop. 5 poops in one level and you're dead! You are free to induce poop yourself, that doesn't affect your health!

    Cheers Cake&Code :)

    @Cake&Code - You can't just inseminate her once. You have to beat the game, and then give your total score!

    I'm not sure what I was doing most of the time. But it seemed to work...

    Fun to play, absolutely no idea what I was doing or why I was doing it!

    What just happened to me?

    I found that I got the best results from just kinda sitting in a corner and hammering the 'Z' button, and then the mid-level, erm, 'boss' thing required me to... sit there and hammer the 'Z' button. So it gave my finger a good work-out! Loved the music, too.

    But why was there poop?

    VAMflax says ...
    Aug 30, 2012 @ 2:06pm

    @photex You were VAMflaxed...!! ;)

    @Zed Yeah, it needs enemies that creep up from behind, so you can't sit in one spot. The poop could then kill them. Also, if enemy bullets weren't killed by your bullets, that would make it more interesting.

    So much poop

    Quite a unique universe you built there !
    I kinda missed a health bar, it would make it easier to evaluate how close you are to losing and add some tension.

    Yeah, true that. Maybe the world is not ready yet for the five-poops-and-you're-dead system... :)

    Thanks for playing!
