interesting semi-roguelike, easy to win unless you flat out ignore the enemies though. strange that attacking could happen diagonal but other actions couldnt.

Awesome game, although it could have used some more enemy variety and background music. :)

Interesting controls but they worked fine. Was not very difficult, maybe needs some new more dangerous enemies. Very fun! Was disappointed how short it was, but always leave them wanting more, right?

I like this! I think it could be a start of a really cool dungeon rogue.
I think the only part that felt weird about playing the game was the wait time for each enemies to move felt a bit long when there were 5 or more slimes on the screen.

I like the idea of carefully picking which square to go to but since there were only 1 block of movement (up down l/r), I wanted to just move without the need of enter.

I also like simple pixelart esp hit reactions. spot on :3
Also Thanks for the valuable feedback for my game!

Heh, pretty funny use of the 'unofficial' theme!

This reminded me very much of old DOS games. The gameplay and audio were pretty simple, but it really fit the mood of the game. It would have been nice to have some more difficult enemies, perhaps even just different colored slimes that were tougher.

This is pretty awesome! Your options are limited, but it's still pretty fun. If you could do multiple actions per turn it would probably add some depth, but its still really nice :D

Nice little game, worked pretty well. Bit to the easy side, more enemies could have spiced things up.

Reminds me a bit of Fire Emblem for GBA.

Old good simple rogue-like. Maybe a bit too old and simple. Nice audio and atmosphere, though, had fun playing this game. Would like to see some more levels and enemy types.

Nice and simple and I quite liked it. It would have been nice to have a little more depth to the game but I enjoyed it. Good work.

Was a bit too easy game. You can try sprucing up enemy variety, or have a more mazelike level structure where you have to choose who to fight and who to avoid to survive.

Was fun to play, but too easy.

For 48 hours this game is impressive. It gets a bit repetitive towards the end and in most cases you do not really seem to have a strong influence on the outcome of the battles, but still quite nice.

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.
