It is pretty random. And it has physics. Always a good combo :)

Finally I can get an answer to the age old question, "how many babies does it take to paint a wall?" - good work!

Really fun mechanic! I really liked it. The game was very satisfying because of the ragdoll physics.

That is a really fun game! I found myself getting quite frustrated in a similar way to playing super meat boy! Good job!

Great mechanic. I loved the blood splat. xD

Aug 25, 2013 @ 9:36pm

This is neat. It's a pretty simple avoidance game but it definitely requires finesse, and pulling off the weirder maneuvers gives you a good feeling. The difficulty is a little erratic but that's the only blemish I can see.

Don't you just hate it when you get explosive in your babies...

Good effects, minimalist graphics, and simple mechanics. This is a game worth playing. However,10 seconds doesn't matter that much; the puzzles can be done in 5 seconds or less.
Also, the levels seem to lack decision making.

Probably I don't get it, but I'm not digging the extreme floatiness of grabbing the babies.
BUT the ragdoll, and the explosion makes this fun :)

Didn't play it all (yet)
So still don't know if any surprises are awaiting for me at the end xD, but dude I will be hearing those beats for quite time, I mean, Is there any other game in this compo with SOUNDTRACK? dont think so.
Random, good physics, simple, functional, challenging and fun, there is nothing left to ask for.
Excellent Job, Roan!

That music was amazing, just saying. The story was funny and I'd like to get to the end eventually (if there is one) :D

Those poor babies T__T. Nice concepts and levels though!

Nice game, with awesome music. Well planned, and challenging levels. Cool death effect. My only complaint is that the 10 second time limit never seemed to have a huge effect on game play. Overall, very nicely done!

Simply a great game. This was way more fun than it should have been... red innards everywhere! Awesome job on the physics engine, and the music was epic, too.

Interesting story and fun gameplay! I was a bit frustrated from the death when going off the screen, but it made it more challenging. Good game! :D

Heh, funny but frustrating game. Awesome audio! The baby story is kinda all over the place, but it makes you cackle when you get frustrated with the game and just start throwing the babies into the spikes for fun.

What kind of hospital has exploding spikes in the baby pens?

Thanks for the game, and here is a video review for you:

Pretty solid game here! Its seems like an easy game, but the way the baby moves makes it tough and fun to maneuver around. I had a lot of fun playing this!

Haha tasty explosions.

Aug 30, 2013 @ 5:01am

Nice mechanic, and well done. Nice amount of levels too.

Sep 1, 2013 @ 12:11am

Interesting mechanics here, fun use of physics too. I love the music, and the minimalist graphical presentation is cool.

Nice rag-doll physics, intro text was silly and bizarre (could exploding nappies be anything else?), all in all nice game.

Fun and challenging game! Really fun mechanics and tough obstacles. Also the music is really good although it seems a bit too loud. Very well done!

The violence in this one is a bit unnecesary.. Maybe if you had handled it with more irony or sarcasm, that would be ok for me. That being said, I enjoyed playing it a lot.Is a great approach to the usual 2d physics game. Sound worked very well too. Good job!

hypp says ...
Sep 1, 2013 @ 7:31am

Excellent! Really like it!

Sep 1, 2013 @ 9:38am

Enjoyed playing this game for a while, the physics are fun to play around with! I noticed there were a few levels which were basically the same situation mirrored twice, you should watch out with that, doesn't add much to the level.

funny game.good job

Awesome game! You must make post-compo polished version and can it port to mobile.

mollymus says ...
Sep 1, 2013 @ 10:36am

I was never under any real time pressure, and the time between a level being completed and the next one starting was longer than the actual playingtime.. I think I spent half the time waiting and half the time playing for the first ~15 levels:/ The game has potential to be a good time-killer, maybe on mobile devices? Would've liked less waiting and more action to keep me from getting a bit bored!

nice game. Love the explosions :)

Sep 11, 2013 @ 7:11am

This is a great idea. Nice work!

Quite fun actually, nice to play around with ragdoll physics a bit. Graphics are fine and music is quite good. I seriously WTF'd when I read the intro text though...

Really enjoyed playing through this one. Similar to Super Meat Boy, I was pleasantly frustrated. Nice game, thanks. :)

Cool music and graphics!
A little bit too hard, though. Managed to go as far as level 18, but game play became very frustrating, it was too hard to keep the baby inside the screen AND avoid the spikes AND collect the stars. =(

Story was funny, sounded like a psychedelic surreal dream. A little creepy. xD

Good work! =D
