Just avoid the waves of spyx (say spikes).
The most you survive, the best score you'll have.


Edit: Fixes sound issues on Fedora, and score display behavior

It uses LOVE, an awesome 2D framework. You must have LOVE installed in order to run this game.
LOVE is available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

What kind of creature is it, actually? Eye ball man? :D

I love your graphic design, spyx looks cute and the melt effect "woosh" is also great!

Looks pretty cool, Didn't try it because I don't have love installed, why not compile it and make it runnable for everyone?

Even though I have

# love --version
LOVE 0.9.1 (Baby Inspector)

I got an error when I tried to run the game:

Error: Extension "mp3" not supported.
stack traceback:
[C]: at 0x314fbcde30

main.lua:19: in main chunk
[C]: in function 'require'
[string "boot.lua"]:360: in function <[string "boot.lua"]:241>
[C]: in function 'xpcall'

This is in Fedora 20.

@zakchaos it would mean different files for different OS.
But I'll look for embeding the Framework within the love file.

@f7f5 that's written: "mp3 not supported"
I may export the static sound into ogg

Really great mood, and the game is fun. However, swarming behavior means the gameplay is pretty repetitive. Otherwise, great job!

I have no idea what the game is about, but the graphics and audio design are fascinating.

Gameplay wise it is a bit lacking, but I am not sure what you could add to change that.

Overall solid entry.

@sorlok @vrld I thought of so many things I could add. I just miss time.
Snowmen are in the list of things to add :)

I loved the creapy-weird graphics, they made me feel really sorry for the little creature.
Great game. Solid and well made!

Impressive animation and sound design :3
The gameplay itself doesn't really allow to go far though.

Surreal. I love the art and animation. The piteous noise our hero made as he flails from attacks... Poor eyeball guy. Is he trapped? Is this punishment?

Nice drawings and animations !!
Great job !

I recorded while I played this game:

First of all, it's incredibly well animated, so very well done there! It's surprisingly fun, especially considering there's so little you can actually do (which isn't a bad thing). I can imagine myself playing this on my phone, possibly using the gyro to control the character. It feels really solid and well implemented. Well done!

The graphics and audio are splendid; the characters are interesting and unique (and have plenty of character), the sound effects are spot-on, the animations are fluid, and the background noise fits the overall style well. Nice job!

Thought it was a quite the game, with effective graphics and addicting gameplay.
Graphics // Starting off with the graphics, I thought they were great. Simple but effective. Corresponded well with the gameplay, and made me enjoy it further. Characters were also great and creative, could've been a little more variety though. 9/10
Gameplay // I would say, gameplay was great and addictive. There could've been a little more added, something to "mix up the salad", as it got "plain" after a while. But, I would say it defiantly got me hooked! Gameplay felt solid and well implemented. 8/10
Overall // Great game, well made. 8/10

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.
