Had a nice silly vibe, thought the music and art direction were paired really well.

Neato!, Sweet music and art style, although at first I was a little confused on what to do, but then I realized that the main title was a tutorial ahaha : D. I enjoyed the game, great Job on the game

Cute game, beautiful graphics. However, I couldn't get a full screen (meaning: the entire field) view on my Mac, and the web version didn't work because it wanted a different web player. What I did see, I liked. :)

Nice art and concept.

Possible bug: It looked like I had plenty of bombs (top left), but I couldn't fire or pick up bombs.

Graphics are pretty nice and the game is fairly engaging. Having only one life helps with this. Great job!

I liked it. Were the goblins on the right side copies of what I did on the last level? Still fairly fun though.

@ Kep : Was it white bombs ? If yes, it's not a bug, but the HUD. :)

Wow awesome entry ! I would play for hours ! Nice twist on controls, having to handle both arrows and mouse. AI was kind of sloppy, but fun to defeat ! Great game !

Robust and original game mecanism.
Great graphics.

Dec 14, 2014 @ 6:58pm

Intersting concept, It's like multiplayer but alone ! ^^
Sadly I'm to good to beat myself.... :s

Ps : At start on windows I had some problems with Unity precets, we have to chose wide screen resolution to be fully functional. Either it's missing the edges and we can't play.... You should maybe tell this in your description.

Nice music and visuals, but the key openers oftenly spawn in the border and they are nearly impossible to hit, making the game frustrating

Fun game once I figured out what to do : ) For some reason the sides of the screen are cut off even on full screen mode. Would be nice to some pickups / items. Multiplayer would be quite fun and frantic. Good job.

I used the linux version and apparently had a bug, that the screen was cut out on the left and right. In the beginning I couldn't see the goblin and didn't know what was happening at all.

Then I figured out there is a goblin offscreen, and i figured I had to collect the keys. But apparently one key was offscreen aswell? So I couldn't really figure out what was really happening.

But, overall it was a quite nice game. Good graphics, nice audio, good job.

@Instant Noodles: it's indeed needed, we add a note in the description, thank you for this suggestion!

@all: thank you all too for the feedback!

Nice job! I had to download the windows version, for some reason the web player would never finish loading. I also had trouble figuring out what to do until I saw the note about widescreen (in Unity there is a setting in preferences to limit size choices to resolutions or aspect ratios you may want to set).

Graphics and music/sound were very impressive. Gameplay got repetitive after a few levels but I imagine you could spice things up enough if you worked on this more. Great game!

Cool idea and really nice graphics. I found the attack system a bit disorienting - I wanted full projectiles and not the suddenly-appearing bombs.

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.
