The game isn't loading in Firefox, can you make a standalone version for Windows or Mac?

P.S. Senpai Club is awesome.

Cute graphics and theme. Hilarious voice-over. The game itself is pretty well polished!

The voice acting and intro was funny.

The game mechanics felt pretty solid. I knew what to do. It wasn't that interesting though--collect points, punch monsters.

The graphics and music were very good - Annika herself was fantastic. However, the gore and the look and feel of the game were slightly incongruous, but it had a certain charm to nonetheless. I have to say that I preferred Arcade Mode.

Dat voice in prologue xD.

Cute, voice over was awesome lol.

Loled so hard when Annika's voice actor was male.

Fun game! Coliision with the slots and the pace of the combos felt quite awkward, but it was enjoyable.

I loved the intro XD

I was a little bit afraid of frame rate when I saw screenshots (I have a old PC), but it surprisingly get fine, and I managed to finish the stage, even if "fire with space"+"move with arrows"+"turn and fire with mouse" was kinda weird to play with only two hands... ;)

I got a C!

Love your character design!

Ah... a magical girl show game! I like your adorable character designs, and was attracted to the splash image :> I would have liked a little bit more game depth and for Annika's controls to have been slightly more responsive, though. I didn't feel like there was a lot of game here for the Story Mode though, certainly not much strategizing on my part. The messages reminded me of the weird things that would come up on those old Tony Hawk games when you wiped out, so there was some nostalgia there.

Thank you for the game!

fun, some sound effects would have made it even better.

I was actually attracted here by the kawaii-ness of the cover LOL. Nice artwork!
The game is also fun. The directness of opening sequence made me laugh!

Dec 11, 2014 @ 10:09pm

Cool graphics, the voice acting in the beginning was hilarious.

Hope you keep polishing this because it's pretty clunky at the moment

The game is fun ... It would be interesting if the enemies fall.

I love the mood of this. It's like some kind of sailor-moon/galaxy express mash up. The art is totes kawaii ugu desu. music is catchy and fits well with the mood. The camera is slightly awkward to control with the mouse at first, but becomes second nature rather quickly. And that voice acting in the intro! Funniest thing I've encountered yet!

Really like the character and animations. The game looks good and plays decent. The enemies should be killed easier and then maybe add more of them. And if there isn't a secret path up again, please don't put a promising treasure chest where I have to kill myself afterwards. That's mean ^^ But still good job :)

Dec 11, 2014 @ 10:23pm

I always love your stuff. You always have smooth gameplay and amazing art style.

Dec 11, 2014 @ 11:02pm

Love the intro sequence with the voiceover. Quite impressive work for 3 days, the art is fantastic and the gameplay is solid. I wish the fighting had a bit more feedback to it, but other than that, great stuff.

Dec 12, 2014 @ 3:53pm

Nice visuals, good job!

If only there was a category for cute D=

I tried Arcade mode after beating normal, and around round 5 or 6 I seemed to become immortal! The space aliens no longer seemed to be doing damage. Aside from that little oddity, nice game.

Needs more response when hitting enemies, feels very light and inconsequential currently. More knockback, sound effects and particle effects would improve this.

This was a well made game, needs more polish, but good for 72 hours of work. I really liked the graphics and audio. I found in arcade mode that you could lure all the monkey things into a corner, jump on their heads and repeatedly do the hammer spin to kill them all and they couldn't do anything about it.

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.
