Let's just say I played this game a lot like how I play trouble in terrorist town! Everyone dies even if they're good lol. It was fun until I lost the trust, Idk why I would ;)

Controls are sometimes hard to use, sprites maybe too small, but cool game idea!

Really nice game! I could easily imagine this being a larger game with multiple stages of enemies and turrets.

Not a bad little game here, A little on the easy side, but i can see potential. Good job

Great concept, an indicator to show the target would be helpful and I didn't seem to be able to build the blaster or have the security guys do anything other than follow.

I liked it, but it was a little easy, some audio would have definitely helped. I felt there wasn't much of a reason to call security.

A really interesting concept for a game. I think the core mechanic needs to be improved a bit though: as it is the game is pretty prescriptive in terms of the solution being always face scan and just shoot dudes when they show up. The game needs something added to it to add some complexity and difficulty.

I found this game interesting, though I am not sure if I was doing something wrong or not... I included it in my compilation video series of the Ludum Dare 37 games, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/T4pyhw3TqqI

Interesting idea. Perhaps a bit easier, just keep killing to get a win (a bit repetitive)

It took a long time to figure out how to build blasters, which was a bit of a problem. It was also impossible to get multiple security people on multiple intruders, which was rather annoying. Aside from that, though, this is a solidly built game. Sound would be an improvement.
