It was interesting and fit the theme but I had no idea what I was doing the first time I played.

Click to move what? It just staying the same, did it crash? Nice music, nice graphic, but no gameplay?

@digibody what platform are you trying to play? Here is looking normal. (web/mac)

It looks cute but I don't understand how to find the apple or what the smoke means. I tried a few times both killing lots of people and not, and can't figure it out. The background is very nice, if you drew it.

Hmm, I can't get anything to happen? The background looks good, and I have music, but nothing responds to clicks. Chrome/mac here. Perhaps I'm missing something.

instructions unclear, apple in ear. Seriously though, I wasn't super clear on what I was doing. and I think the deathnote/notebook screen is broken, but it could be my own incompetent. art is nice, very stylized. music is cool (did I hear some earslap in there?). solid effort, but could use with a little more work (such is the nature of the beast I suppose).

Neat game and a nice send-up to Death Note, but I really struggled with figuring out how to kill people--it seemed like at certain times it was easy to kill, and at other times no matter how many times I clicked with a 3/4 full bar I would be unable to kill anyone. I also wasn't sure what the auras, or the spectrum indicator and the lower right hand corner of the screen were supposed to be used for...

I think that with improved documentation, your game might be a lot easier to get a hang on. I'm intrigued and I'd like to play more--once I know how.

I know what happened here. We had the same bug. If you have Unity Pro and using the New UI. Create an empty scene that loads your first scene (The UI scene). It will fix that top 1/4 view took me an hour to get that bug fixed. @schuran

Cool take on Death Note, very cute graphics, appealing tone and feel. The gameplay's a little hard to figure.

Sorry guys for not working.
And about that feels, some efforts is necessary to give more feedback for you (like how to get apple).
I think now is everything fine, some stuffs is missing (like missions which we does not have time).
Anyway, thanks for feedback and sorry for that bad feelings about game. =/

Lacking in guidance, but great art and could be a cool game.

Inspired a bit by Death Note? :P Cute graphics

You might want to credit Nimble bit for the Tiny Tower characters you are using :-)
anyway, quite difficult to figure out until I read the description. Now I get it, it's cool.

Very nice aesthetics, especially the menu book! Unfortunately I'm unable to figure out how the aura colors correlate to effects, but I think this aura mechanic has great potential nevertheless.

I was also quite lost with the way the controls worked. I tried three times with little luck really understanding the game mechanic. If I understood it correctly, the color coding explained how I should interact with the ppl. I think it would have been easier to understand if each color type had a very clear effect once one had clicked on them and that the effect would give me a clear understanding of what just happened. Now, all I got to was click on red. But that didn't really help me understand how to succeed.

The graphics was great and the sounds fit really well and made a very good mood for the game.

Awesome graphics, easy controls, however very hard to figure out who's what :)

The graphics look nice and somehow I really liked the rough background music. As others have said, it is a bit unclear what exactly is happening. I have found the apple :D Think if you could make some more instructions, background story or some kind of tutorial it would work better. Because I was not sure if I was doing the right thing, until I got the apple.

I love lost boys! Pretty good game, but I didn´t figured out what I had to do

Interesting concept....

Dec 15, 2014 @ 9:23pm

Great mood and looks, and neat idea, but it was not super clear how I could find the apple, so I kinda killed indiscriminately until I somehow won. That title screen is A+ though!

even after reading the Spoiler, still wasn't sure what I was doing. I just went around killing people.

Very strange. The art looked alright but everything had a different level of detail.

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.
