  • I liked the graphical style and creativity behind this idea for sure. Technically it was solid - no crashes, input did what it was supposed to 100% of the time, no glitchy sound effects. Would probably do pretty well on game portals - kudos! I only scored it 3/5 on the "Roguelike meter" because it felt more like an arcade game then a roguelike (to me). Great piece of work for 7 days though.

  • Took me awhile to figure this one out but once I did I was able to really appreciate it. Quite difficult at first but I feel I can consistently beat it now, which I interpret as it being well balanced. I think this game really captures the rogue-likey feel of having to think quite carefully each individual move while still requiring some long term planning.

    Graphics are extremely well done. They do a great job of wrapping the mechanics in an appropriate theme. I am a big fan of the bird enemy.

    The sound effects are a nice touch.Even though they are  simplistic they make the entire game feel more complete.

    All in all I think this is a great entry

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