Love it! So cute and fun, especially sound effects.
Also amazing polish.

Dec 13, 2016 @ 9:54pm

Everything in this game was absolutely great !!! Graphics are really nice looking and the sounds just bring so much humor in the game !!!

Just wonder what kind of man has that kind of arm... :D

Amazing job !

@wujood That's too bad:( thanks for letting me know.
Could you see if it works if you allow plug-ins? (see description)

Thanks all!

Those sound effects! Legend!

Great art/sound style and real fun when you are supporting the friendly units. The pickup pinch is tactically interesting but can get annoying when you just want to flick.

i loved it at first, but then it started to get boring just doing the same things over and over. i could probably play it for a really long time but im not bored enough right now

Really cool game, especially impressive since it's made in flash! Love the little sound effects and the final battle is amazing. Keep up the good work!

Brilliant game! It is awesome in all areas and super cute, but the audio in particular is one of the best I've found so far.

Fantastic job!

Dec 13, 2016 @ 11:02pm

Wow, what a game. It looks great, it sounds great, it plays great, and it's very unique and innovative too! Good job on the difficulty curve too, every level is a good step up from the last one.

Incredible effort, well done!

5 outta 5 everything, absolutely love it!

Palarus says ...
Dec 13, 2016 @ 11:45pm

Cute, fun and the artstyle is really unique! The sound effects give the game a very interesting feeling, like it's actually some kids pretending they are great generals. Awesome!

Nikteddy92 says ...
Dec 14, 2016 @ 12:05am

Solid gameplay, its fun and there's actually some strategy involved.
The sounds are just hilarious and the graphics is just crisp.

I might also be baias because it gives me a crazy advance wars vibe.

Dec 14, 2016 @ 12:16am

One of the best entries, can't really put a finger in it...

dobnarr says ...
Dec 14, 2016 @ 12:33am

Great game! This is really, really cool. The graphics, sound effects, music, and newsreel style are just really terrific. I had a problem once with armies being generated at the upper left corner of the screen, which led everybody to march up there. Not a big deal. It was a little tricky figuring out when I'd pick up and when I'd flick, too - I didn't figure out the pattern there, and just flailed until I got it. Love this game. Great work.

Good thing that Chrome loaded this! I dig the style and the progression. BUT mid playthrough, Chrome crashed :( Anyway, congratulations! Fun game!

Very cool and fun game !
The sound is especially funny. The music and the vintage video effect is a good idea^^

Ludipe says ...

Really innovative and fun game. It's super polished and the art is great (loved your take on the theme).

Well done! :-)

One of the best I've played so far! It feels like it's already ready to be out on the App Store.

panurge says ...
Dec 14, 2016 @ 5:43pm

Can't fault anything about this! Perfect mood and excellent, innovative gameplay. I expect to be playing this on my tablet sometime in 2017. :)

Dec 14, 2016 @ 6:55pm

Great little game that demonstrates how to make use of the skills that people bring to a jam. I liked the small learning curve that makes good use of the basic input mechanics. Art and music provide comedy with small easter eggs here and there. There was even room to polish things up. Great job!

Dec 14, 2016 @ 7:56pm

your embedding doesn't works.

Really funny game, I laughed instantly whan i saw my allongated arm.

Cool audio and gameplay!

I don't know if it's intended but i could make disapears heavy ennemy by drgging theme far in the bottom left corner, it was a bit easy once i exploited this.

Really cool entry wwith nice graph and humour!

Dec 14, 2016 @ 10:09pm

Wow. Very cool. Great idea for a game, and excellent execution in setting the mood with the sound design and visuals.

juxipolo says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 3:17am

Gameplay and presentation were fantastic - that finger flick feels great!

I wasn't sure how to deal with the tanks, do you flick them multiple times, or do your guys have to deal with them?

terryg says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 3:34am

Very solid game. I loved the old timey feel of it and the pfew, pfew of the guns. The sound effects are so funny.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 4:34am

This is very silly in the greatest way. Fantastic soundtrack, even the sounds of the little guys when you pick them up and the background expressions of the generals.

Broxxar says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 6:39am

Absolutely positively delightful. Incredibly polished, great visuals and audio and a good bit of fun too boot. Really well done!

Ganon says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 7:29am

Wow!!! This is an amazing game with the time provided. I'm amazed that you guys were able to make a game with such awesome a look, sound and feel. Truly impressive and I would absolutely play an extended version. By far best game I've come across for LD37. Tip of the beanie to ya and enjoy a sweet sodipop!

Dec 15, 2016 @ 8:08am

Awesome style and super fun to play. Knocking the soldiers off the table was quite satisfying. I only wish drag and flick were binded on different keys. It adds to the mayhem, but feels a bit unfair.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 8:24am

Very fun(ny) and nicely polished game. Congrats!

ValiaP says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 9:32am

Great idea! Art style was cool and game play works well. Sound effect was funny. Great work! Really polished game.

Love the sfx! And the really really long hand ^.^

UrbanHelsing says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 11:25am

Great job. This was amazing, loved the voice acting, the graphics, the overall game.

Any feedback I'd give is that I'd love to have a final really hard level, as it was a very easy but enjoyable run-through.

An example could be a massive enemy force vs a lone soldier. That'd be challenging!

Ekilibr says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 12:42pm

Really nice entry! The fun is there, and it's actually incredibly rewarding to tick the little dudes from the paper-battlefield!

Once you enter, you're immediately in and ready to kick some bad guys out.
Well played!

Nixxor says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 2:22pm

This is amazing. Great graphics, sound, gameplay. I don't think I would change a thing about it. V Impressed. Well done!

Haha it's so fun !

Love the sounds and art !
We can switch the flag or stop the music, it's a good idea !

Great job team !

Dec 15, 2016 @ 8:31pm

So simple and fun! 5 stars all the way down, guys. Nice work!

Dec 15, 2016 @ 9:30pm

Best game I have played so far. 5/5. The concept is great and very very fun to play. The only thing I can say about the gameplay is that charging is not very effective (In the last one, I couldn't beat it and I decided to just click without charging... Almost all of my troops survived) Besides that, a really great game.

Dec 15, 2016 @ 9:35pm

Wow. This game is really awesome :D
Really funny. Nice sounds effects.
I'm quite impressed of how well it represents the idea that battle is first played on paper by planning :)
Good job.

Cheers,
Morco (Maybe Later team)

Dec 15, 2016 @ 9:57pm

Really fun game. Great idea, putting a tower defense like this. Lovely and cute graphics, best game I have seen so far. Sadly my browser crashed though, not sure if it was because of the game.

Minemes says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 10:11pm

Super fun Game :D

morrilet says ...
Dec 15, 2016 @ 10:33pm

I love the concept. The game was creative, cute, and fun. Having tougher enemies be harder to flick around was very interesting. Also, the audio made me laugh.

Dec 16, 2016 @ 1:00am

I think you can probably tell by the rest of the comments that this is one good game jam game.

MementoGames says ...
Dec 16, 2016 @ 2:12am

Music, sfx and art are just amazing! I had a lot o fun, but I wish I had some other things to do besides flicking. Splendid job overall!

madmarcel says ...
Dec 16, 2016 @ 11:39am

That was excellent, thoroughly enjoyed that game :) Great work!

XenosNS says ...
Dec 16, 2016 @ 1:34pm

Very fun, humorous. Great sound effects and art style. Sometimes was difficult to determine which troop i was going to flick away, ending up flicking my own troops in the process. Great job!

Gamepopper says ...
Dec 16, 2016 @ 1:40pm

As if there was any more on-the-nose metaphor the world needed that generals are just big kids playing with toys, this is it. Very fun entry indeed!

Infin8 says ...
Dec 16, 2016 @ 3:14pm

Incredible atmosphere and interesting gameplay! Though I would say the flicking and the picking are cofusing to use at times. Also IMO the AI could be tweaked. The enemy base doesn't serve a purpose as all enemy units need to be dead before your units need to attack the defenceless structure

psychomonster says ...
Dec 17, 2016 @ 12:23pm

Yeah dude the sounds!!!!! hahaha that is a nice game. I like the idea of using the theme like that.... artstyle is fantastic! Details asre super... klick the flag'n'stuff! #1 in sound and gfx ^^^^

Obvious_San says ...
Dec 17, 2016 @ 12:31pm

Frantic and ridiculous, I love it! I especially loved the little indignant "please don't touch me" when you pick units up, funny stuff :) The sound effects in general were really fitting and well done, like children playing, and that worked really well contrasted with the implication that these are serious people doing serious things.

My only criticism is that later on it becomes difficult to flick things because the input is interpreted as a pick-up. Really great game though!

Greate game! Amazing graphics, sounds, music, humor, also very innovative!

ManuSaiz says ...
Dec 17, 2016 @ 9:44pm

Amazing entry, I loved it all, specially the "minions" style voices, those were trully hilarious ^^

Also loved this old film effect, you achieved a great mood there, congrats!

And then the gameplay, it was a pretty nice idea having your general cheating there and stomping things with your finger, although I didn't fully get to understand what were the strategies, I tried to have red units not hit the floor for as long as possible in order to avoid them from shoting, but sometimes they shot even while I held them.

Astonishingly solid entry, 5/5.

CONGRATULATIONS GENERALS! :D

tinyworlds says ...
Dec 18, 2016 @ 4:49pm

I don't know if I should feel bad about enjoying the game.
Could be kinda seen as metaphor for the detachment of generals and the people who actually fight in the war.
It was "cute" the graphics were really nice and I enjoyed the eastereggs. Music & sound was great too.
Awesome game!

Jezzamon says ...
Dec 19, 2016 @ 10:57am

Short, but great!

Dec 19, 2016 @ 11:50am

Fantastic! One of my favourite games I've played this game, the art, the style, the gameplay the audio, it has it all. Brilliant brilliant stuff!

Valandre says ...
Dec 20, 2016 @ 12:37pm

Mouahaha! funniest game of this LD so far!! 5 stars for me

ncannasse says ...
Dec 20, 2016 @ 1:04pm

Nice polish/mood, but the game lacked a bit of challenge or actual gameplay :)

David Cookie says ...
Dec 23, 2016 @ 11:37am

So fun! And it really has some potential imo :D
Well done!

Frenchie says ...
Dec 24, 2016 @ 6:51am

Awesome game! It got a little hard to control when there were lots of units on the screen but the rounds were short enough that I didn't care if I lost. Loved the sound effects :)

Ellian says ...
Dec 24, 2016 @ 9:48am

That was amazing! I had a lot of fun playing this and flicking units everywhere. The duration of the game is just perfect, it ended right before I could get bored with it.
Great art, and fantastic sound design as well ahah

Rixud says ...
Dec 24, 2016 @ 5:13pm

love the audio!! GOOD JOB!

pmarincak says ...
Dec 25, 2016 @ 12:26am

This was a charming little game. I liked the SFX and how the game played. One thing to note is that clicking exit didn't work.

Great Job!

It's simply a great and charming game! I had a lot of fun!

This is awesome ! I Love it !

Dec 26, 2016 @ 9:34pm

Amazing. Right on theme, clever interaction, fun sound effects. Really excellent job.

NightShadow0 says ...
Dec 31, 2016 @ 2:16pm

Haha this is really fun and polished, what a great concept. My only annoyance was that the hand would often try to grab the units when i just wanted to fling them and it always threw me off. Great work!

quadtree says ...
Jan 2, 2017 @ 1:24am

Graphics and sound are great! If there's one comment I'd make, it's that sometimes you end up grabbing units when you meant to flick them.
