This really makes me want to beat all 4 rounds. I'll try again...

Interesting idea, but setting rotation to the mouse x as opposed to just point and click targeting make the control a little clunky. Keep up the good work!

I think you should be able to move around and it is quite difficult to aim.

Nice idea, with stationary but spinnning tank, and I like the title ;)but I have to agree with Tasteslikefuture.

Mouse control is implemented uncomfortable, which complicates the game itself. It would be nice if the pace of the game was higher.

Not a fan of the controls but the game play is solid beyond that. I think adding movement would of made this a different game, So I'm glad you went stationary.

Any chance of Linux build? It looks very interesting and I'd like to play it. If so, contact me on Twitter (@ViliX64)

Controls were kinda hard, and the bullets were hard to see, some polish and you got a time waster here!

What controls would you guys suggest if it were a mobile app?

This is an interesting control scheme. I found it tough but that's okay! I think it would have been nicer if the sprites and especially the bullets were a bit bigger. A lot of the challenge was from missing a little and I guess that's what you wanted. But the graphics were so tiny it didn't feel powerful.

Still, a good entry!

I like the control system. A classic mouse aiming would have made the game totally boring. The "special" feels a bit weak imho...

Nice game, with music even! I had difficulty aiming, perhaps make the tanks bigger?

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 ( 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.
