challenging, the music is great, lacks some sound effects and a Pause button.

Intense little defense game. Clearly conveys what each character can do, and good strategies appear from the mix of abilities. Neat.

Interesting but sound effects would have made it a lot better.

woooooo, survived with jsut the rocket guy on like near zero health!

Awesome idea! Love that there are different types of guys to deal with different situations, really makes for some fun gameplay! Would have liked to been able to run out of the base once the walls were down but this is a minor gripe.

A tactical pause ala FTL would have been nice to pause-position-play and really think about the tactics of where I'm putting everyone. Really dig the idea!

Would be great with some bone crunching kill fx but a good challenge!

Love the concept here :) Beat the game on my first go, got 19893 pts. Really good work for the jam and was quite fun to play. Would love to have seen a medic included!

Easy to start, but fun! not too hard to play through, though. Maybe you could add more options and challenges for manipulation of the soldiers

Kind of surprised to see you didn't opt to be rated on the audio, the music was fitting, even if it doesn't have accompanying sounds of gunfire and whatnot.

I enjoyed this, it was simple, but a pretty interesting take on the tower defense-ish vibe. Nice to have the variation of the 4 different troops, though I didn't feel the need to move them around toooo terribly often. They all seemed to handle the varieties of ants pretty well, the main differences being their range and shot speed.

The clean aesthetic made it pretty simple to look around and figure out what all the important stuff was. Though the one thing that was interesting was the choice to have a tile they have to go to stock back up on ammo. I like having it as a separate tile since you take notice when they need to move to it, though it does prove to be a very slight annoyance when you want to move someone and they're somewhere in the motion of resupplying. (since you tend to want to click on their actual position in space rather than the tile they're supposed to be at).

I liked everything though, good job on this.

Really enjoyable game, with good music! Gets really intense with the later waves!

This was surprisingly good! Nicely balanced, though maybe just a little on the easy side. I had a real sense of panic when my walls went down and I realised I actually needed to think a little about what I was doing. My only suggestion would be to make reloading at the ammo box take a few seconds, or make movement of troops much slower. Though perhaps this would just result in sitting your troops on the ammo box. Anyway, great work, I can see a lot of thought went into the balance and wave design.

Awesome! The balance and creativity here was amazing. You have a game here if you could get some sound effects and art on this baby. I played through all the way to the end and didn't find myself bored at any point. Cool idea and I hope you find yourself adding to it in the future and putting it out there for more people to play!

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.
