This game is cool. With some polish it can be a pretty big game. I mean, it's not balanced, but is a nice concept.
Have you thought on early access?

Fica de olho nesse cu, bahia.

Very frantic gameplay but fun. Wasn't quite sure how to control the eye-beam? Apart from that very nice. Also very fitting "boss level" music :) One word of advice: Please mind that not everyone has a QWERTY keyboard layout, e.g. on my German the Y and Z keys are switched making this game bit harder than necessary, especially since the WASD keys weren't mapped. How about opting for Shift, Ctrl, Space, or Tab? next time?

@phil, I'll consider that in the Post-LD version, thanks for the feedback

Awesome idea to be the boss with some real skills. I like the Ia of the hero and the mood of the game. Good job ;-)

Nice! I've always wanted to be a boss in a game!
The game is fun to play and feels well balanced!

A very good take on the theme. I thought myself to make a reversed boss fight, but have deemed it too hard to do. I'm glad you proved me wrong :)

Great way to make a reverse boss battle. And I loved the music.

Pretty easy to just keep switching between two diagonal quadrants while keeping Z pressed, but since the evil laser was so cool of course I had to use it every once in a while too. It had a nice mood to it and I especially loved the song (upload it somewhere if you haven't already :P)! Maybe some kind of progression would've been nice (different adventurers coming to face you with different patterns or something, maybe just more of them at once?) but I guess it'll have to do for a compo game.

Nice concept, it can be funny time killer.

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.
