This game is awesome, I love the iconic jump animation, the music is really fitting and the whole scale of the battlefield is nice.

Well done!

Really impressive, especially as a compo entry! I finished the first 2 levels.

The graphics are pretty good, and I'm surprised by the amount of assets you've managed to produce in so little time (characters, weapons etc.).

The level design is good and gives character to the game - the medium level was the most interesting to me as I had to explore the map to find out how to get within shooting range of the goal. I didn't manage to destroy the bookcase on the hard level, but I didn't try too hard either, maybe I should have shot more bombs & rockets at it!

Overall I like the "Star Wars Battlefield" feel of the game, and the spawn animations are awesome! A really ambitious entry :)

I really like the idea here. Part team shooter, part physics puzzle.

Nice FPS! Reminded me of my good times playing Battlefront 2. I'm quite impressed that you managed to do this in the jam :)

Bombs are OP, haha. Was probably just luck, but I 1HKO'd the hard level with one! I had a hard time finding weapons other than 1 and 4.

This is a great amount of work for a compo entry! It brought me back to those N64 days of playing Army Men, and being able to blow up the environment was so satisfying! Very enjoyable! Well done! :)

This is good fun. You did a great job making a small space feel huge, which is great for this theme.

I feel like - as is often the case - a little bit more polish, especially around tuning the controls and polishing the sound a bit more, would have gone a long way. But what's here is a ton of fun, and an impressively well realized shooter for 48 hours.

Nice game, makes me think of Mean Green : Plastic Warfare (which I love), impressive for a compo entry.

Great fun! I couldn't figure out how to use the bombs, but I was able to use a rocket launcher to knock the enemy base off the bookshelf in the last level, and then I was able to destroy it. Great concept and well executed.
