Dodge the red bots as long as you can. Keep moving! :)

This game was made over two evenings and didn't utilise the full 48 hours.

If the red guys don't kill ya, the sound effects will. :P Seriously, though. I like the powerups and the way the enemies colour fades to show their health. Pretty cool.

Ought to work on the sound-- picking up a bomb powerup is pure torture, since everything explodes at once and it's really loud.

Sound's maybe a bit too loud. Try to add screen shake when a ennemy die.

Haha I had fun playing this. The x2 shooting speed is so cruel for one's survival :O
I got 13800!! What do I win? (I don't want a snowman)

12400 !Simple but well done. I just didn't like that I can not touch a robot i aimed exactly, i had to aim at its side : a little confusing

not bad. like the color fading instead of health bar. i almost went deaf on the bomb.

yea sorry about the sounds, I didn't really know what I was doing with audio but I'll focus on that next time :)

I like the pacing and the dynamics of this entry :D I think that the powerups are a nice addition.

If you want to keep the game as it is, I would tweak the sound volume a little, because maybe it clips and distorts a bit when there are too many audio sources (i.e. when you activate the "bomb" and there are many enemies on the screen).

Still, good job!

The game is simply fun up to a certain point. The scaling of difficulty makes the game impossible at some point, which lowers the replayability. The sound is a little jarring. The mechanic you have to show the health of the enemies and the player is interesting, but it is a little hard to see on the player character because you see so little of him. It would be nice if the health was also reflected in the boarder or something too.
Over all it was fun to play. Good job.

11400! YES.

The bomb didn't work when there were a bunch of enemies on the screen.

Lol. I finally did it with 73k points... I think there's a point that you wouldn't really move, right? Crazy and Funny, very, very funny!! Congrats about this super-addictive game here :D

18100, got cornered ):

Nice game, it would have benefited a lot from different types of attacks and different enemies, good job :D

Some people just couldn't let go of the snowman. Nice work.

The audio was kind of annoying. And the game is really slow to pick up. Once you are around 10,000 and they start spawning like crazy - that is a lot of fun :)

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.
