Nice snake version. Graphics get flickery sometimes and the controls are somewhat hard, but overall the theme idea interpretation is good!

The game takes a little while to get into. The early stages of play aren't particularly exciting. As the player starts learning more about the systems in the game, and the fight on the virus gets more frantic, the game really shines. I worry that, because of the short play time a lot will give for LD games, many might not get to that point. The only suggestion for change that I'd make is for controls. I don't necessarily mind the "tank" controls, but it's be great if the snake stopped turning when I left go of left or right, rather than continuing to drift. It made it difficult to target pickups.

That escalated quickly! I never really felt the rounded turn snake games were all that 'tight' control wise due to getting into situations where i'm spinning in circles around what I want to pick up, but it's definitely useful here due to having to dodge bullets. Some sort of counter for how large a tail you have could have been nice.

Well, I sure didn't know what I was doing until I read the comment someone posted about it being a snake game.

A little too easy to die, and if you find yourself too close to the wall, due to your fixed turn radius and speed there's nothing you can do about it.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
