Incredible work! Very fun. Looks great, and the gameplay is an excellent blend of RTS and dungeon crawler elements.

Fixed a bug with progression. Before, the enemies would get progressively harder, but the flies you get from enemies and chests stayed the same, making it probably impossible to get past area ~7 or so.

The game won't work on Windows 8. I ran it four times, but nothing happens. :/

Ah, really? I don't have Windows 8 so I don't really know anything about it. Do you have the XNA 4.0 redist?

I liked this game a lot but I felt like it was more of a rogue-like than an rts. In a really good way

Nice atmosphere with fitting music.
Gameplay wise it got a bit repetitive after level 4 or so. Would have been nice to either have more tactical options (more the rts route) or some kind of item system (more the rogue like route). Was fun to play :)

I liked the difference in controls between commander and troops. A bit more tactical diversity would be nice. Good use of sound and graphics. Persistence of cash but not subordinates rewards beating early enemies without upgrading.

Great! Feels really polished for a game made in such a short time, and the graphics are also very cute. Nice work!

Wow 9/10 it's very froggy too bad it's not mush music that would've made it 10/10

I had a ton of fun playing this. My poor little froggy scout always bit it though...

Do the frogs revive after the level or something?

You actually get three fresh frogs each time you go down a level. I was going to make them persistent, but I hardly had any time left and it would have taken a lot of work/testing/time to balance it out.

yeah thats my biggest complaint is not having guys that go with you each level. esp on later levels getting two scouts is the death of me... LOVE the rougelike stuff in it thought so I don't mind dying. really cool mix or rts and rogue like... forg theme is great loved the rangers eye patch!

Thanks. Yeah, I wish I had the time to improve upon that. At least I learned from it. Maybe I'll keep working on it some time.

Froggies! The game was very amusing!

the music totally cracked me up, and I enjoyed the combo of direct control and remote control. Also totally beautiful graphics! however, it felt like there should have been more of a distinction between the commander and the frogs themselves, also each level ended with just the commander alive, cleaning up what the frogs had left behind.

After finding the xml you mentioned in your post-mortem, this game got much more fun after I "adjusted" some values^^
But in the original version it's really hard, you have to manage your resources really strictly.
