Wasn't good enough to collect all three hearts but good game. I like the mechanic of your vision becoming smaller and smaller as you take more damage. :)

Submitted

Was very fun and addicting to play and surprisingly difficult. I didn't expected that to happen after I collected  the 3 golden hearts :)

I really like the idea of the game! It makes fun but is also very challenging, as the amount of cupids/arrows increase very fast, but it's possible. I think with some more polishing, more enemies and more difficulties, you could turn this one into a full game!

Also the art style reminded me of Don't Starve, which is nice! :D

Developer

Thank you for your feedback, we really appreciate IT :3 We Are glad you liked it even when it's harder then we expected. Unfortunatly there wasn't much time to polish the game, because we aimed too high :/

Submitted

I like the mirror idea! Arrows became really overwelming after some time though.

Developer

Thank you for your feedback. We appreciate it. It's true, that the amount of arrows is quite high, but the reflection mechanic is kinda OP.  So we didn't see any issue with that.

Great idea. The game was fun, but i felt like the letters were a little too strong. That's about the only issue i have. One more thing that comes into mind is that the trees stack on each other in a weird way.

Otherwise a fun game.

Developer

Hi, thank you for your feedback especially on the letter mechanic. Could you define "too strong"? As in too fast, or dealing too much damage? Or that you have to hide behind obstacle? We are aware of the problem regarding trees, we underestimated the time and we couldn't polish the game as we wanted.

Submitted

i felt like it was a bit too fast. I understand you wanted to make it faster than the player, but i often had nowhere to run. 2 solutions that come to mind are to add more objects to hide behind, or simply make the letter a bit slower.

Developer

Okey, thank you for addressing it. We are happy that you enjoyed our game.

Very complete game you made in this jam. Great idea using the blur to replace the heart. I really think the broken heart can be remove because I don't know what's this uses. Graphics and the audio looks designed by yourself. That's very amazing and cool which suitable for your game style. Also UI design makes player comfortable. I like your game and highrate now.

Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it. The blue broken hearth was meant to regain vision, but as it looks like, without UI and some help informations it is really weird. We are glad you like our game ;)

I like your game and the sounds. I think it's a good idea, and I enjoyed playing it. Good job!

Developer

Thank you for your opinion, I make sure to pass it to the team ;)

Submitted

Good idea, solid work, fun to play, keep it going!

Developer

Thank you for your comment. I am sure we won't give up :3

I am really surprised how good this game is. Game idea is very funny, protect yourself from falling in love.  Absolutely Amazing. The background music and the animations are pretty awesome too.  Not much to criticise here. Hats off.

Developer

Wow, thank you for your amazing feedback. We appreciate it a lot.

What a lovely game! Really nice Graphics and I love the end, haha. The only think I miss is an help panel (took me a while to figure out I could use the mouse to rotate the shild), and maybe some sort of score system :) All in all very well done!

Developer

Thank you for the comment and feedback. We are glad you had fun. You are right,  UI is completly missing, we kinda underestimated the amount of work :/  There is no real score, only boss to defeat in second phase of game (triggered by the golden hearth if picked 3 times), but we totaly agree, that it should be somehow seen in the gameplay.
