A bit confusing, but well polished.

The graphics are amazing. I didn't like waiting for the disk thing to rotate correctly though. It made gameplay slower than it needed to be.

Niiice, All items on one screen, Graphics look superb, took me a bit to figure out that the blue things created paths. Well done

I like the visual effect, and the platform thing

It took me a while to even comprehend what was happening. Even after playing it for a bit I still felt a little confused.

Really awesome animations and graphics. Cool mechanic with the tile creation. I ran into a bug though where I could pick up a key on the second level. Really nice game though.

I have to be honest I was super confused at first. The enemies were hard to dodge unless I was far away, and the key hitbox turned full solid after I collected. Otherwise some cool ideas in there.

The graphics are great!
A bit confusing at first but it's challenging.
The way I like it.

Interesting mechanic and great visuals to support it. I found it a little difficult to use properly (the fixed cycle of rotations felt tedious to wait for), though I like where it is going.

I like it a lot! Honestly, I didn't know exactly what I was doing, but there was a lot of shooting and explosions and creation of platforms. Good times.

Really Cool, but so difficult. I wasn't able to go trough the second level...

Great polish and animation. The controls were solid too.

Very nice graphics and animations, game was lacking some kind of tutorial, it was really confusing.

Rated high for Graphics and Mood. What are those spinny disks? What do they mark? Without any instructions the game is confusing :)

The artowrk here is great. Gameplay is frustratign though, almost impossible to finish, at least for me.

The graphism are pretty cool, the game mechanic is amazing. I like this compo !

Dec 10, 2014 @ 7:20pm

Cool game, a bit confuse sometimes, enemy bullets are fast and unexpected. Love the visuals and concept. Thumbs up.

Really nice artwork. Once I figured out how to create paths, things got really interesting -- what a great mechanic!

Sublustris says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 6:03am

Yes :) restoring blocks to create new paths - it is a main feature of this game. But using of this technique so clear for me , that i've forgot to include it in tutorial :(

Nice pixel art and sound effects! Very high quality! I really like your style! Some tutorial about the mechanics would be good (Even if its just a few text bubbles). Some ambience, or background tune would add tothe mood! Congrats for this one!

Cool extraordinary mechanic. I wish the first level was simpler.

Awesome concept! Really nice graphics

Dec 11, 2014 @ 8:20am

Interesting game mechanics :) I enjoyed this, on a side note, would be better if you could rotate faster overall nice entry!

Very cool mechanic. One problem(?) seems to be the spawners moving a fixed number of spaces, which I think prevents them from reaching certain spaces.

Very nice mechanics of the game. Cute graphics. Interesting combination of puzzle and arcade. Sounds slightly disturbing and (as for me) breake the atmosphere.
Rus: очень мило нарисовано, классная механика - и думать, как пройти, и отстреливаться нужно. Звук, правда, немного простоват и скорее отвлекает.

i just hadn't enough time to make suitable sounds :(

Very interesting mechanic. Graphics are really great, love that effect you used. Game overall is a bit confusing. Does anything happen after you collected enough keys?

Sublustris says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 9:49am

Next level of course:)

Dec 11, 2014 @ 10:01am

Confusing at start and then pleasant game.

Dec 11, 2014 @ 12:56pm

Well polished, love the main mechanic. 5/5 on everything, you deserve it :)

Dec 11, 2014 @ 1:42pm

Cool, though it took me some time to understand what was going on. Nice art! Good job!

Kuupu says ...
Dec 11, 2014 @ 2:58pm

LOL those explosions! =D

Really nice game, congratulations.

This "destroy and create" path really adds a lot to the gameplay

Could be a cool game, just needs some more tweaking. The circling disk around her is confusing. Thought that's the shoot direction indicator. And don't seem to see the goal. collected keys, shot some monsters...but what was there was still fun :)

Great graphics and quite addictive, but a bit repetitive. And I have no idea why the girl shoots projectiles from an orbiting sphere. Check out our game, we've finally updated the link

visually stunning and puzzling game, well done

interessant concept, but hard to play in this version...

Fun game and nice graphics.
The enemies shots are a bit hard to dodge unless you're constantly moving, and I didn't like having to wait for the spinny disks to point in the right direction.

Very interesting mechanics. Gorgeous sprites !

A few bug (walk sound is sometime played while I've stopped, I feel like I should be able to move after being hit and transparent), but didn't prevent the fun.

Well done !

It clicked what I was doing on the second play, I enjoyed it after that. The disc mechanic works well.

It's somehow confusing, but I really love the art style of this. You should introduce something along a health bar, because these one-shot-kills are nasty ;D Very polished anyway!
