Who knew viruses had faces? The music was great, and the graphics are definitely above average.

The components of this game are all pretty good, but the way that they fit together doesn't work too well for me. The assets, although individually effective (I love that centurion), don't look like they all came from the same game. The triumphant part of the background music suits the general feeling and I had a few pretty exciting moments listening to it, but the xylophone portion cheapened the experience and made things feel a bit too cutesy.

Then, your game has two stages, corresponding with filling one bar at the top of the screen, and then depleting the other. The actual gameplay, although requiring basically no strategy but figuring out how to do things efficiently, was fun and exciting (It reminded me of Dust: An Elysian Tail) until it became tedious. There didn't really seem to be any way to lose. Simultaneously, since you had bars for both states up at the same time, I kept wondering how I was supposed to be taking care of the HIV when nothing but immunity was being influenced.

Finally, having an exhaustion mechanic without any sort of indicator for that--other than not being able to do what you want--doesn't give the player enough feedback for them to know if it's that they're playing the game incorrectly, or that something is going on within the system itself.

It's a great interpretation of the theme, though, and there were some really enjoyable moments.

Fun game and great music, wasn't to sure how the attack worked though. Found myself flying around and not sure how. Really liked the music.

Hi. Love the music. Found the attack move fairly confusing, though certainly novel!

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work.

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.
