I can't vote for your game, did you accidentally opt-out of all categories?

Neat game. I could see some potential for "cookie clicker" here.

Fun! Nice take on a classic type of game. I really enjoyed when I shot the city myself :)

Nice retro graphics. The cool down time on the silos is an interesting riff off of Missile Command. Weird that the game kept going after my silos were blown up. Just had to wait until the cities got killed. Nice job though!

Nice little game, I would like something a bit more about the theme, like adding a screening ability to your silos, or a smokescreen to protect the city, or some other feature. Nice job!

First I used only my 1 gun and thinked: I cant shoot that fast. Then I saw that there are 3 guns... After that it was hard :D

Graphics is good but game is too hard. You should decrease time in order to reload. Well done ++

I liked that sunset graphic in the background. The game was fun but difficult, maybe the challenge could be ramped up over a longer time.

Good job, I enjoyed it! Simple with decent level of challnge. I liked that the missiles collide with each other, letting you be more selective with your shots.

Once I figured out that I could focus on keeping only one building alive, the game became pretty easy. Maybe making the missiles launch faster with fewer buildings, or making the turret rate of fire slower as buildings are destroyed would make it more balanced?

At first it seemed very hard to keep track of everything on the screen and the cooldowns of the cannons, but once I figured out you only have to keep one of the cities alive and should focus on seeing the essential, as in the missiles that are actually on a trajectory to hit a city or a cannon, it became perhaps even too easy.

Really liked the pixel art and the audio fit in very well. Overall an enjoyable experience.

Excellent game! I liked how missiles could explode in chain reactions, although I felt that enemy missiles shouldn't hit each other naturally (who's firing these, anyway?). Good use of time pressure with multiple silos and cooldowns. Some special attacks (tornado?) would be cool!

Awesome game! It reminds me of an old arcade game, great use of the theme!

Very nice game!
You must be quick though and keep switching from one SAM launcher to another as enemy missiles keep coming at an increasingly rapid pace :-)
Well done!

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline.

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.
