Give Me A Hand

Mouse: Move cursor
Left Mouse Button: Shoot left hand
Right Mouse Button: Shoot right hand

Travel through land as a confused armless dude. Collect different arms to have different attacks! This game is very open ended and repayable, I recommend playing it more than once to see everything. Also there is a secret ending if you beat the game with the first arm.

The music is a repetitive, but beyond that, the graphics, story, and gameplay are charming.

Great visuals, incredible variety in weapons, definitely a blast! Only issue I had was I died immediately upon respawn at one point and got caught in an infinite loop.

Interesting use of the theme and solid Zelda-like gameplay

I liked that I could fire more than one bullet in the entire game. The boss battle was actually pretty fun.

Really fun! I like that the bad guys are easy to kill, like the variety of weapons - just got stuck sometimes because I couldn't bomb my way through the baddies

Nice! I like the simple look and color scheme. Very nice atmosphere. Gameplay could be more polished but definitely holds the interest with all the different abilities. Music is repetitive but it does help the delirious atmosphere.

Smashing graphics, actually enjoyed the music, but could of been a bit longer to cut down on the repetitiveness. Your normal enemies had a slight weakness that they were a bit short sighted, made it easy to snipe them. Solid game play, great work

This was pretty charming experience. The music was rather annoying though, got through to the end, but it was hard because mines were not very good against the enemies. I liked the arm system a lot, though.

I like the gameplay, its fun! But the final boss seems really hard with some weapons!

The graphics are nice, the sounds are nice. The music can be repetitive.

nice production for just a weekend. i noticed that i could just snipe enemies without aggroing them, or run completely through the level without fighting. good job overall dude!

i find it funny that we chose almost the exact same colors for our ground and tiles :)

Nice concept! Final boss fight was hilarious! There were some balancing issues with the weapons - rocket arm was sooooo much better than giant arm, for example. Also, it was much easier to run through a level than to fight through it - considering that the game's emphasis was on the weapons, this probably wasn't what you were going for. It was a fun little romp, though!

Cool game. Creative use of the theme, hands down (hehe :p).

Great game, nice graphics, cool take on the theme. But the music. It hurts.

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 ( 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.
