It was, by far, the best soundtrack i heard today, it really gives some more rhythm to the gameplay. I never was really able to complete the pentagram, it always missed some edge although i could stay alive for nearly 96 seconds. I think you guys could able the L and G keys while moving, unless that's really your intention to keep it that way. I also realized on a bug: my man character adopted the "dead form" and kept on being alive xD so it got faster and allowed me to survive longer.

You should do a tutorial, but the gameplay mechanics are very unique indeed. Interesting!

The audio is nice, but it doesn't really matches the mood.

Aug 27, 2015 @ 11:30pm

Great game and great choice of music? Did you make it yourself?
It is really fun to play yet so simple! Really well done!

Thank you very much for making this! Keep up the good work!

Very interesting; fun game. Not sure exactly how best to survive (and nothing seemed to happen after getting the potion ---maybe I did it wrong?) Great job!

Aug 28, 2015 @ 1:56am

Totally enjoyed the audio. A little confusing but made sense after a short amount of time.

@Shina69 Thank you for your comment which full of enthusiasm~~!(so useful feedbacks about gameplay-suggest/bugs/feeling) and you could actually stay alvie for more than 50s !! so amazing~!!
about the key trigger~~ you give me lot of great suggest~~
now we are just try to building a new mode and the suggest was implanted and being tested~ Thanks again!

Tanton-H2X says ...
Aug 29, 2015 @ 3:43am

the tutorial has been implanted under your suggest~~^-^ Thank you so much~!!
and as a matter of fact, i also get the similar feel about audio when i first time in to the fighting-scene ( the auido was chosen by Williams&MrHitman whom responsible for choose audio ~~ )
but when i play this scene after a little while~~ i know and get recognized that the rhythm is sooo fit the Momentum of these mob!(our enemy) ,
therefore i knew it may be really a fit choice~~ ? But~of course ,we will keep our sensitive to find more appropriate audio in future~~
Thanks again for your intuitive feedback/~~~☆゚

Tanton-H2X says ...
Aug 29, 2015 @ 7:00am

Superb music and cool idea and gameplay (reminds me The Tale of 2 Bros little bit) Please check my game too:

Tanton-H2X says ...
Aug 29, 2015 @ 7:32am

I also not sure exactly how best to survive~~haha~~
and the visual warn/feedback of these magic-potion-trigger really was not clear enough in the last previous version (。・v・)
Well, we have to fix it Through your reminder~~ I feel it better now~~
Thank you for your suggest and feedback ~!✧✧

Tanton-H2X says ...
Aug 29, 2015 @ 8:07am

Kept dying. Music was unrelenting. Felt there was a game in there but missed it.

congusbongus says ...
Aug 30, 2015 @ 11:23am

Great music; the game is very hard to play single player

camlang says ...
Aug 30, 2015 @ 5:05pm

Too hard for single player, may be you should make a note somewhere or make a single player mode. Overall it is great, I simply enjoy bullet-hell games.

Patomkin says ...
Aug 31, 2015 @ 6:18am

Overall a very funny two-player game. I've tried playing it in single player and got to opening four portals out of six. Randomized nature of fireballs, inability to see enemies (e.g., if standing in the lower right corner, the enemies get to you almost instantly after spawning) and uncertainty of what killed you are biggest problems of this game. Other than that, a pretty solid entry. Kudos :)

Aug 31, 2015 @ 12:17pm

Could be a bit clearer, maybe a bit too hard single player, but overall a good entry and a good concept.

Chris M says ...

Great stuff guys! Plays like an arcadey version of Crawl. Good twist on the mechanics using the pentagram on the floor, although once everything's up the gameplay becomes one dimensional which reduces the ability for longer play session.

Theming was great with gorgeous art and UI, although the background music (a favourite of some here it seems) didn't work for me.

Would love to see some iterations on this!

Tanton-H2X says ...
Sep 5, 2015 @ 1:38am

@TackoramaLtd @congusbongus @camlang Thanks for comment~~ The Music and no-single mode are really big problem~ToT Actually we should build more to solve it~~ ☆゚
@Patomkin @tripleVisionGames
opening all portals really difficult only by oneplayer~~ orz especially at we turned up the rate of theese spawner in the new version..@v@ on the other hand,the uncertainty-killed may because the holy-water which were spilled by these Divine Madness Just be destroyed~ After your suggestion, I think I really need to make these item/effect more clearly(for example the holy-water which can kill players...)
all in all Thanks alot for these feedbacks~~!
Best wishes

Tanton-H2X says ...
Sep 5, 2015 @ 2:19am

Ahhh~~~Thank you Chirs!so excited see your comment here~>v<
How targeted feedback and Inspired me a lot,We think this game may need so many adjustment about the mechanism and the scene space (level design),for example in a new level....but the bgm really a big problem (ToT) in my opinion,a music which sad but implied rhythm may more attractive~~?
Also , about the <Crawl>,This is the first time i heared about it~~ thanks for your mentioned it and let me know it (Really Cool Game)
Thanks for your approval and encouragement~ we will keep on going

Polyganz says ...
Sep 7, 2015 @ 8:57am

Wish there was a one-player only mode. Also its a little too difficult for my taste. All though the game concept is a promising idea it needs some more work and iteration to truly shine through. :)

PowerSpark says ...
Sep 10, 2015 @ 6:04am

The graphics and audio are great and fit together amazingly! I had to play by myself but I think the concept is awesome. I could imagine playing it with a friend and having a blast figuring out what to do, running around everywhere. The intro was cut off a few seconds too early, I don't know if I pressed a button to continue but that's a feature that you can add in there. Great two player game, I'll see if I can play it through with a friend.

Tanton-H2X says ...
Sep 10, 2015 @ 8:50am

the single mode is really important,Actually we need to do it and let it more complete,we will go ahead~ thanks for your good advise!Polyganz~~ ☆゚
Thanks a lot for your play and comment~~ you give me a important feedback about the fade~ and don't have one-player only mode is really not cool~~ToT we really need work harder at level design in next iteration~~

(your level design have many merits deserve to learn by us )

SoloDuoTeam says ...
Sep 12, 2015 @ 2:05pm

I tried single player and I guess that with a two player that is definetely a interesting experience. Pretty nice graphics and good intro. Good job!

Flaid says ...
Sep 12, 2015 @ 2:54pm

The graphics are really nice, and I thought the sound fit the gameplay nicely. I am by myself, so I had to control both people simultaneously (which is somewhat difficult, obviously!)

The fireballs seemed to fire in random directions, so it was hard to use them to get rid of the murderous townspeople.

Overall, very polished and nice!

Anti says ...
Sep 12, 2015 @ 4:30pm

Really liked it. Fun to play and the audio was nearly god-like.

Insality says ...
Sep 12, 2015 @ 4:30pm

the music and the art! Love them ;)
Gread job!

crucknuk says ...
Sep 12, 2015 @ 6:26pm

It would have been nice to have a one player mode only too.
I like the concept, i like the graphics and it is a cool idea i think :)

the music, even if it is nice in its conception, felt a bit misplaced in the world of the game, but maybe because it is actual surviving and combat so that is why it is that punchy :)

by the way, well done :)

schnerble says ...
Sep 12, 2015 @ 8:15pm

Very good work! I was a little confused at first (I didn't read all the instructions first, sorry) but I worked out the pentagram after a while. Using the pentagram is very important, though, because without it things get too hard very quickly :) Nice graphics and great audio.

Darkflint says ...
Sep 12, 2015 @ 10:50pm

A coop-game? now i am surprised! audio and graphic are really cool, unfortunatly i have no other player avaible :( But cool entry :)

Sep 13, 2015 @ 1:28am

Really great music and gameplay. I was confused on what was happening a lot, but the art is pretty charming. It works as a very difficult single player game!

Sep 13, 2015 @ 4:43am

Excellent music! Gameplay was fun but I found it a little difficult to figure out what was going on initially.

nihilaleph says ...
Sep 13, 2015 @ 6:29pm

I was able to play a little, since I don't have someone to play with me it was pretty hard... but still I could get a taste of it! Seems very nice! Mechanics are fun, graphics are nice and cute and audio is great! (though it was mentioned that it's another artist's)
It was a bit hard to get what each node did though... I also found weird that you shoot in opposite direction of you movement, but that's also very interesting!
Anyway, great job!

Tanton-H2X says ...
Sep 14, 2015 @ 3:40pm

Thank you All you guys >u<
Your Comments made me really encouraged a lot.~ sooo appreciate your Test and feedback~~
none single mode really a painful forevery one,sorry for let you guys toiled....ToT also i think this might be a lesson about [Single mode is Really Important]~~
@Flaid Fireball is opposite direction of you movement just like @nihilaleph got that~aha~
@schnerble pentagram is really important,can not leave it~>u<

yuigoto says ...
Sep 14, 2015 @ 6:58pm

Nice one! The game style/concept is pretty interesting with this magic circle and co-op nature (but I played alone in here T_T).

I felt the need for a written tutorial, together with the images, but that's ok. :)

The music feels a little bit upbeat for the genre, but if you put in mind that this game is action oriented, it really helps set up a nice mood.

Also, nice work on the graphics on level, characters and items/objects, it's really well done and looks like, with more work, levels and more time to put some refinements, I can totally see this as a pretty fun arcade game for release! :D

Nice work! :3

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 ( 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.
