Great graphics! I just wish the enemy types had different patterns or attacks. Fun concept to expand on though, good job!

Great graphics! I think adding in some particle effects for collisions, etc would really have made it!

The graphics. win.
fun game, nice music, good polish, far to easy, but still fun.

Verdict: nice game, good way to pass the time, quite enjoyable.

Nice gfx, smooth controls, well done character design... music is little bit annoying... Over all well done

Pretty art, the music looped a little funny, though.

Great graphic and style. Just a bit to normal for an LD game.

Really loved the shiny artwork, and the sad fate of the octopus if you lose was a funny twist. :D
If you do a post dare version, a longer music track, and definitely some sound fx would be cool.

Superbly drawn graphics! The game itself is a bit easy, but fun.

Top graphics. You could really expand this with more enemy types and weapons.

nicely drawn, but gameplay is a bit too repetitive. it seems you could do a lot more with more freedom of movement and various types of attacks for both player and enemies.

Nice little game, I love the graphics and the music!

Regarding the game itself, the gameplay is cool, but I feel it lacks some kind of "rhythm": the enemies waves are spawned randomly each X seconds, which get a little bit repetitive over time. Maybe you should try to create enemies on a more varied time span, and also try to add some randomness on the octopus movement so it doesn't "just" move back and forth a the bottom of the screen. But nice entry anyway!

A quand la suite ? :)

Really great graphics! Fun to see Haxe get an outing too. I seemed to waltz through the game though, its like almost impossible to fail?

simple, but fun and looks good. a little variation in enemys and bosses would have been great though. i thought the art assets really capture the idea of the game though.

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.
