Well I enjoyed it but not enough to make it to a boss. I kept dying and enemies took SO long to kill. I'm not sure if it's supposed to take that long to progress off one screen? It feels like I should have been getting stronger or something, because the part I kept dying on (one eye, 3 yellow guys) took forever. The fireball almost doesn't even feel worth using other than as a knockback because it does such little damage, and attacking with the sword is clunky and isn't fun.

But, other than that, the game looks cool and chances are I'm just bad at it (and/or I'm too impatient for your game, whichever one :P.) The boss fight looks really cool, almost want to go back and try to get to it but I think the cool-factor would be ruined by the slow pace of the game :x Overall, nice job though!

wtf did I just play? Enemies were pretty hard. Actually kind of fun game though. I'd up the crazy and make progression a little bit faster.

That was fun, but I couldn't get past the third wave of enemies. I kept on getting cornered off screen and mauled to death. I liked the eyeball sound effect. I made me smile :D

Very,very,very hard game. But quite fun. Can be frustrating but if you prevail, you will find yourself having a lot of fun.

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.
