This game is great! The highest score I managed to get is 37. The simplistic art works well for this game and the music can be a bit repetitive after listening it for a long time.(Need more music) Anyway, great work!

I scored in the mid 20s before bring overwhelmed. Nice game and really great music. It fit in with the art style nicely!

Great hex tile strategy game, and overall gameplay was balance. Good job, keep it up.

Cool game! My top score was 138 turns. I almost lost right around 100 because the board was totally out of control... but I was able to keep sneaking around to teleporters just barely and then the enemies were combined into large numbers. I managed to sneak in one awesome turn where I hit the X and killed everything all at once. That was definitely the high point, felt great!

I struggled at first to figure out how the attacks worked, but once it was clear I got rolling.

Nice entry with some interesting new ideas in hex gameplay!

The minimalistic art really brings the focus into the gameplay. You can get locked if you go to the shot panel before any enemy spawns, though.

The music fits in really well with the minimalistic art.

This is a very simple yet fun game. I really enjoyed this one. Keep up the good work!

There is a bug that if I pick up a "range attack" item and there is no enemy, I stuck in the interface "choosing target".

@buckle2000
Sorry for the inconvenience, you can simply ignore the interface and move a step, it will disappear eventually!

Great game! Kinda reminds me of Crypt of the Necro Dancer without the time aspect. Hope you continue developing!

High score of 97 :D

This is SO fun. I might play it to kill time a lot.

Very difficult game, but very satisfying to get a new high score by predicting the enemy movement better :P I really likes the control scheme as well, very easy to play! Nice work!

Great concept! Difficult but not unfair. Except a bit annoying music, is the game still enjoyable :) Well done!
