I really like the different types of enemies and how they swarm your "children". The challenge ramps up at a good pace so it doesn't get boring and overrun you where you have to really prioritize the path their taking to eat what you shoot. Very good game!

It would be nice if you could hold the mouse down instead of clicking so much. Nice graphics and music. Interesting idea of being locked into one place instead of moving around. It seemed unfair at first until more child blobs spawned, and then it was easier.

I am guessing there is no win condition -- I quit some time after 1300 points.

Love the concept but as GAFBlizzard said, it would be nice to hold the mouse instead of hard clicking. Nice music and FX!

Nice but a bit slow, after a while it just turns into spamming the left mouse button

This was actually really fun! It feels like the audio balance needs a little bit of tweaking (sfx are a bit too loud), but there was a decent bit of diversity with the enemies, if there were upgrades available somewhere it may help to make the game a bit more engaging as a result, but it's a fun entry none-the-less! :)

5/5 Audio for the sad trombone hahaha. Seriously though, awesome music, cool art and fun game (though I had to quit around 6000 points due to RSI haha). I think it would be better if you could hold down mouse to shoot, but either have limited bullets that recharge when not shooting, or a secondary attack that you can charge with combos or something, just to add strategy beyond "how fast can you click." Overall really cool though :)

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 ( 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.
