Very good game, once I figured out that the hex's change the navigation of the bugs, it became a nice mix of puzzle/arcade.

Nice, fun, too easy when you place the right tile at the right place.
A really good game :)

Bullets are super slow and theres no weight behind them.

Audio is pretty lack luster.

Shampop, thanks!
We will fix tile placements today. Small change already pushed in but looping your exits one to one will not be allowed.

As for audio, its cgMusic, we will find better one for PostCompo version.
And we will push button to disable music for compo version soon.

Great idea. Its a good base for a fun game. More enemies and maybee different powerups for the bee :)

That's a cute game with a great idea ! Become a bit random after 5 ou 6 waves of bugs, but still prety fun. Congrats!

Nice presentation and audio. Would be nice to see the difficulty ramp up more quickly and have some more variety in enemies / powerups. Well done.

These Tsuro-esque tiles are awesome! Great game.

Thanks for all the feedback, we do want to release a post compo version and collecting feedback for now.
Stronger bugs, powerups and changes to bullets are planed along with few other things.

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 (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.
