In the start cut-scene the walking animation was derpy, other than that it was well choreographed. Music was good. Sound effects were also good other than the n00b call-out which is not nice, lol jk. Directions were given at the right stages and they were also clear, which helps reduce player frustration.
Everything considered, very cool concept of adding typing and shooting together.

Nice concept. The art looks good on its own but doesnt always fit together. Still I really liked the effects in the start scene. Having to use the arrow keys to change difficulty in the menu seemed unintuitive because they werent used for anything else. I really disliked the voice-overs partly because they dont sound like a girl at all and partly because they got repetitive fast. I think something like this in general is too ambitious to pull of in a Ludum Dare. The game itself was still quite fun to play.
Verdict: great game, luv it lol! ^^

Wow, the level of polish in this game is really good, given the amount of time it was developed on!

The mechanics are all very solid and I couldn't find any bug.

The concept of the game reminds me of the typing of the dead, which is a nice concept that is definitely not used enough. The amount of enemies gets unbearable really fast, even in filthy casual mode. I think the game would benefit having the difficulty come more from the mixture of different kinds of enemies, and less from the sheer amount of them.
The main character insulting the mummies is also a nice touch, gives the game some extra personality.

Very good job!

Really good! Art looks great and there's a great amount of polish in general to the whole thing. The camera movements and everything are great. The keyboard + mouse mechanic is cool. With a mechanical keyboard it almost sounds like you're reloading the gun. Definitely get overwhelmed at a certain point but that's the fun of it. Really nice job!

Really polished - good job there! Was pretty hard but I beat normal on my second try. The text that said "Type something (AA for example)" was confusing because typing things other than the four approve combinations doesn't do anything. My friend suggested it maybe have been interesting to allow special shots by typing more letters (AAAA kills two mummies in a line or something).

Overall this is a solid entry. Nice art and sound, good amount of polish.

Personally I dislike the call outs like "noob" or "fuck you". They are too frequent and there are too few, so it get's old very fast.

Playing on normal I would have preferred more variety in enemy types. So instead of a horde of AA enemies I would have like to have fewer enemies but with different letter combos.

this is really well made, from he shaking, animation, and sounds. you managed to add a lot in a short time! it really feels like a finished game.

sadly I'm not that good with this and the enemy numbers grow so fast, I didn't get far on normal.
sorry I don't really have better constructive criticism.. but that's a good sign right?

Interesting game it reminds me of The Typing of The Dead, but easier and with a Egyptian style added to it.
The graphics are cool, although the animation on some bits were odd such as when the girl passed by, it appeared as if she was dancing, it was funny though.
Overall the game is great, so well done.

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. Many solo participants 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.
