First of all, since this is a Unity game, can I just say, it's really easy to bind WASD to movement in addition to the arrow keys, which would give the player much more choice of how to control movement. This game's really easy, as I can literally just stand still and press E every time a slug thing appears. I find the graphics pretty nice and they match the style of the game. But if you were to do this again, make it a bit more challenging, and please map both the arrow keys and WASD to movement, as I (along with a lot of other people) prefer using WASD.

The game is a bit big for the embedded window, but otherwise not too bad.

yeah, it was too easy...i fixed this bug, now worms from UFO should get extra fly speed toward gifts.

Very easy. No challenge. Worms have no chances to win. But graphics and sound are not bad at all.

I liked the audio, the visuals could certainly use a bit of work and the game is certainly begging for some polish overall.

Lots of fun, but some issues with collisions (as the enemies are dying). I love that you can attack the UFO, and in general enjoyed playing the game.

Simple concept with cute graphics and functional sound. However, since the difficulty does not increase the challenge isn't present. (no that's not a pun)

Impossible to lose and pretty repetitive, but the graphics hold promise. A little polish on the gameplay and I could see it being a lot of fun!

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

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. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
