Interesting concept. I was baffled at what I had to do the first round, but I learned and evolved my gun and whatnot. Innovative game and impressive graphics.

Great proof of concept. After I discovered I was in no danger it wasn't as much fun but I stuck with it until the final round.

A solid defense game. Controls are smooth and weapons upgrade at a pretty good pace. I like it!

It had some interesting tactics too it. A bit unbalanced since they just swarmed and no chance to keep them at bay. But I liked the idea that what manages to survive gives a boost, you should explore that more.

Good idea!

Started out as little confusing, but quickly got fun. Good job!

The enemies seem to converge a bit too quickly on the centre and then spend too long once they're there, so you're mostly just shooting into the centre. I'd suggest making them move a bit slower, giving the seeds less health and maybe putting the seeds in a few other locations too.

The other thing that seemed a bit odd was that you couldn't get hurt by the enemies (unless I'm mistaken?). That could add an extra element of strategy and tension to the game.

Also, some shapes other than boxes for enemies would be nice. :-)

I had fun playing through this. Also, best ending ever. :)

Yay, woo.

Maybe it was my trackpad, but the rate of movement of the gun was EXTREMELY fast and I just couldn't control anything.
