Judge feedback

Judge feedback is anonymous and shown in a random order.

  • It felt incomplete and buggy. Didn't understand the mechanics nor the purpose of the squares under the hears and the sound ques. The tutorial gives no clue on the controls. The graphics are pretty, but playing is not a pleasant experience. 

  • Nice little game, which is, however, closer to tactical puzzles than roguelikes. Retro style is fine, possibility of playing with gamepad is nice addition. But animation of enemies that can move across the screen in one player's turn could be faster. Several such enemies can delay a turn by uncomfortable amount of seconds. As for combat/turns system - not the most popular system, but already used in some roguelikes.

Cute graphics! I included it in my 7DRL Challenge compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)
