Great animations--especially the explosions. Can't really tell when I'm being shot at so I just circle the target until it explodes, and then move on to the next one.

great first game! your graphical design and attention to detail is amazing, the game looks beautiful. gameplay-wise it's fun, but as i can't tell when i'm being shot at (i guess?) it's kind of frustrating when i die.

We had the exact same idea, but our concepts grew in totally different directions :) Great graphics, but you need to put projectiles in so people can try to avoid them!

Cool game. Once you've learnt how it works though, it becomes easy.

Hm. I seem to explode randomly. Apart from that, I loved destroying these oil platforms. Who needs oil anyway, when you got a couple of rudders attached to your ship :P

Nice idea and sprites.

Extremely well drawn and animated, simply a joy to look at! Wish I could see when/where the rigs were firing back

Overall, the game wasn't the most interesting to play. I just spent my time circling around the oil rigs while firing at them. There wasn't much variety.

The graphics, however, were definitely the strong point of the game. They were beautifully made, very nicely done. The cannons on the oil rigs were a bit small though, I didn't know I would be fired at until I died!

The gameplay is the most important part of any game, at least it should be. Focus on the gameplay in the future; it doesn't have to be creative or never done before, just an idea that is fun to play. Keep practicing, have fun making games, and good luck in the future!

Good game! I really like the animations. Only problem was that my mousepad disables when pressing any key. But still, I like dwarf fortress' slogan "loosing is fun!"

I liked it, good job! Although it's a little difficult (maybe I just suck at it)

Really pretty pictures, but without a well defined response from enemies it's not so much fun. An after compo could be really cool.

Gorgeous pixel art and animations.

Haha, it's like greenpeace with vikings! Take THAT oilrigs! (Oh crap, will that leak oil into the ocean?)

This game is fun but too simplistic, as has been said. The graphics are gorgeous!

Restarting to the first level: Has never been a good idea (though I've been guilty of this too).

Awesome graphics! nice animation i cant see the enemy bullets ): but its ok, great work! loving the game here :D also the movement is addictive so the gameplay is adictive :D xD

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 ( 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.
