The game is good, but there are some design issues. A cross-hair would be nice (playing on Linux; maybe it works in Windows?) rather than just the mouse. Power indication is on the right side of the screen; if we are shooting from the left we have to take our eyes away from the player. Purchase system does not provide enough feedback.

The game is 46mb, isnt that a bit too much? the music was great, but graphics need some improvement, I like the idea though.

The music was composed by me a few months ago. That song actually is 30 mb. Quite big.

Building art was nice but the rest was lacking. Triple arrows feel more like a downgrade because of the 3 arrow cost to fire. You left some print statements in the game which probablu shows it down a lot.

Nice game, could use some polishing and some extra features. Nice mechanics & music.
I found it very funny that birds fall from the sky. ;)

maybe the crosshair itself can show the draw power somehow. I like how my skill progressed as I played. At first I was just trying to hit them at full draw in the sky and full draw on the ground at different distances. Then i was getting bold and trying to compensate the draw power as well and made a few crazy shots. Its pretty satisfying when you hit a bird in the air, especially when your first arrow missed, and then you exactly compensate on the draw and aim combined and see the arrow curve down at the end and hit.

The crows are to small. You need super sized crows! ;)
But I really didn't want to stop playing, as it was a lot of fun. I like the upgrade system.

Little buggers are really hard to hit. It's fun when you do though. Good job!

Little more polishing wouldn't hurt this game. I had fun playing this, though :)

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 (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) 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.
