The game is pretty solid. You should fix some bugs in the movement but in overall is a good game. Well done!

A cool idea with neat and snappy visuals that amounts to a solid game.

Solid with controller. very satisfying throwing yourself around.

found a small bug in movement. if you walk down along a wall and the wall ends you start walking mid-air.

aside from that no complaints :)

This the best slug flinging game I've ever seen. But seriously even in this broken state your game is hillarious.

Pretty neat graphic style.

A bit glitchy, but overall fun :)

This is great! If the movement was fixed it would be the commercial quality!

Can't wait to see a post-compo version :)

Difficult to rate as it's local multiplayer, but very interesting and fun. The flinging using a controller feels very natural, maybe one to port to Ouya?

Did you implement alternative controls? I would like to play it but I don't have a controller.

A keyboard build would have been great too! Looks cool though!

Pretty fun mechanic, in need of some serious bug fixing and polish, however

Loved this game, one of my favourites so far with really great mechanic. The flick was such a fun movement just enjoyed flicking myself around even without an opponent. Would be great to see a post comp version with the bugs ironed out and enemy AI. Great job though, will definitely be playing this more.

some bugs of collision. But good start for a cool multiplayer game...

Thanks for the feedback! I'm working on an updated build with new collision, and wall climbing, and bots, and different gameplay modes.

Wow, this is fantastic. First game on the controller that worked better than I expected. The flick action was rad tastic! Fix a few bugs, add some AIBotSlugs and BAM! Game I'd buy and play to kick the crap out of my friends. Even better if you get it multiplayer on the internet. I could see an epic steam battle for an hour. Also, let me mod something simple about my slug. Like pick a color or give me a hat.. or a knife... :D

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.
