Ranked from 14 ratings. Score is adjusted from raw score by the median number of ratings per game in the jam.

How does your game fit the theme?
In this game, you don't know what's behind the door. The room layout and hidden things are revealed by your ninja echolocation skill. You will always get surprised when you walk in the room.

Did you write all the code and made all the assets from scratch?
Almost yes. For Unity, we use a game jam template created by one of our programmers, it includes some infrastructure-related systems like a scene manager & event manager. For the game idea and gameplay, we made them from the start of the game jam. We had a great time discussing ideas on our Miro board. All gameplay codes and assets are created by ourselves within the week. :)

Good idea and execution. Good graphics design, polish and combination of mechanics. Additionally, I adored the little details such as the animation of leaving the room.

Super game, cool unique mechanics, and I was really hooked.

Not the most obvious sequence of actions (first move, then attack), it took some getting used to.

Couldn't get past level 4 (where there are 5 policemen). But the game captivated me, forcing me to try again and again. Bravo!

Thank you so much for playing the game! :D We're glad you like it.

Yes, we did not have enough time to fine-tune the mechanics and difficulty :( The game can def be better

Amazing take on the theme! I havent seen a game like this so far, and you did it very well! The gameplay is reallly cool and the whole idea around only seeing certain parts and planing your path is really cool! Very uniqe idea and love the realisation of that! Very great job!

Developer

I was expecting to hear some stone wall sounds when waves collide with them, but great game with unique idea so far :D

Super game! The sound and graphics are incredible! I think this game could live a full life after the jam! Team work well done! For me personally, there was not enough coverage of the theme, but maybe I did not understand this.

Hey, thanks for the feedback! Really appreciated! Let me clarify our vision of how our game covers the theme. We turned all the gameplay around the black room and the discovery of the room behind the door! We are really happy with how the strategic part turned around, what has been discovered or not behind the room's door.  Maybe it was not clear enough, and this explanation help you understand the team's idea!
