I can't seem to shoot the suicide enemies. An in game tutorial would have been nice as well. Why don't you shoot with the left mouse button?

Pretty cool! Only thing that made me grumble is trying to kite backwards into the invisible door that goes up when you enter a new area :)

I liked the basic premise, as well as the upgrade mechanic. I think that the combat might need a bit of balancing. Specifically, by the time you see the threat, it will often be too late to do anything abount it, and the monsters are very lethal when they reach you.

not bad, It was confusing when some enemies were easier to kill than others, but they have the same sprites.

Firing seems a little bit unresponsive, but other than that - fun game!

I don’t think I was very good at this game, I tried over and over and couldn’t get past the second room, it wasn’t until reading the comments I realised there was an invisible door that goes up when you enter a room. Otherwise it was pretty cool.

I got scared from point to point. Basic idea is neat. Combat needs a little balancing. You often kill them to late. Great in the end.:D

Better instructions would help a lot

Too slow movement and reload, made the game very hard in the beginninng. A tutorial would have been nice, it's a little confusing. Nice work on the sprites!

Didn't manage to kill the first two blue creatures...

Cool attempt, combat could use some tweaking though :)

Aug 26, 2015 @ 4:45pm

Hard to play. I couldn't kill even the first two ones...

Gameplay should be faster, takes quite a lot of time to move around the map and it can be kinda. Some hints in game would be pretty useful.

Mini Submission FAQ

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.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Historically, more games are entered in the Compo, but with more people and more time, Jam games have the potential to be better (that doesn’t mean they are). Many solo participants do enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

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 at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

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.

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.
