Me against the bugs.
It played smoothly and after the first "accident" I got that the white circles mean there is something bad going to spawn.

I found it irritating that the stuff on the ground had no influence (it looks like walls) but you and the bugs just run through.

The handling of the player was nice :)

Also .. uhm.. room theme? :)

It would be nice if those ground elements were actual obstacles. I like that you at show where enemies will spawn i have plaid one there guys game with similar mechanic but you never knew what and when will hit you. Not bad music but i would lower the amount of bass.

I think it would've been nice if there had been obstacles in this room, or some way to avoid / hide from the bugs, but alas. Played it a few times, and got a score of about 3500 before I died :D

Yes, I had during the 48 hours some ideas to improve the game: obstacles, other weapons (like bomb you can throw), care items, ...) but I hadn't enough to apply it. :/

(My personal score is 13500 :p)

Pretty fun, could use more features, but for 48 hours what can you say. Liked that you managed to get music in there, some of the sfx were a bit annoying, but hey. The artwork for the bugs was pretty cute.

Very enjoyable game! You took a cool idea and implemented it very well, it looks good, it plays even better, the controls are easy to learn and the player movement is very fluid. Some of the things that could use tweaking are the collisions with enemies, if you get surrounded by bugs bumping into one of them means sure death because they start playing pinball with you until you have no health left, adding invincibility frames would definitely help in this instance. Other than that it's a great game that I enjoyed playing!

Alright, the bugs are quite fast, and quite tough... I fought for around 5000 score and then died in a painful death.

As soon as I killed a bug it crashed :( Tried it a couple of times with the same results!
