Cool game, it's got a nice look to it and plays really well. Gets pretty tricky pretty quickly for me though.

The idea is simple yet the game is great. I love the art!

Looks great; nice cohesive pixelly aesthetic. Surprisingly addictive despite its simplicity. Love that shooting sound! Would liked to have seen a more thoughtful integration of the 10 seconds theme, as I suspect the game could benefit from a bit more of a sense of rhythm.

Damn that game's hard. Could of been more fun if it was faster paced and had a bigger field

Nice game with cute graphics. Felt a bit sluggish at firs tbut then i just needed to increase my attack speed. Some move speed upgrade would also be nice. Two suggestions on the interface: since spacebar opens the shop menu, then spacebar should also close it. While on the shop menu it would make more sense to map the purchase keys to the keys the player is already got there fingers over, so WASD. reaching over there to the h,n etc keys was a minor hindrance.

Very addictive gameplay!

Small gripe: the connection with the theme is quite weak IMHO.

Fun little game! The simple RPG systems are really satisfying. I kept accidentally clicking off-screen, which would make the game lose focus, though. Overall, good, simple concept.

This was pretty fun, I like how it doesn't end after the ten seconds, but gives you the possibility to keep shooting at mobs. Good job. :)

.xnb.. I doubt I can emulate that under Linux using Wine..

Aug 27, 2013 @ 8:53am

Stunning title, but unfortenly - doesn't launch under Win((

Looking for update of this one. \m/

This was hard, but fun none the less.
10 second pressure really gets the blood flowing.

For starting this game you need installed copy of XNA Framework 4.0. Try to install it before launching the game.

Decent enough little game. I enjoyed the graphics most of all.

Nice! Funny and hard game. I miseed more space to move and some speed upgrade.

Reaperguy says ...

Great game! You should add some speed upgrades, otherwise it's just too hard to avoid the enemies

I liked the game's simple pixel art style. I enjoyed the upgrades, but getting kicked out of the store when I couldn't afford anything else caught me off guard a couple of times and got me beaten up. Cool game.

That was pretty crazy, nice job on the escalation throughout the game.

I like the stat system, it was cool to be able to try different strategies each time. It gets pretty crazy. Fun game!

Very basic concept, but it was fun to play. In a post-compo version, I would prevent enemies from spawning on the player's position and I would increase the view size.

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.
