These kids are really talented! Well done team

Submitted

I Had lot of fun playing it nice game man or women!!!

Submitted

For a game made mostly by children this is honestly excellent and way more than I could manage. The art and sfx are uniquely charming in a way that asset packs and royalty free sounds could never match. Well done and I hope these kids go on to participate in many a jam to come!

Submitted

Nice game! I feel like it lacks some challenge (maybe limiting the duration of the rewind function? If there's a limitation or something I didn't find it), but the game is very creative and fun! Also, top notch music right there!

Submitted

I completed the game and it was really good. At first I though that rewinding was just a gimmick but then I found that you can use it to hit targets that you missed at first, very well done!! And really cute to do this game with your kids!

Submitted

I find it quite cool that you made this game with your kids,  great job.  Everything worked well for me, and it was fun to play.

Hi, i've played and rated your game. It's very good for your second game. It's really fun to play. Well done!

PS: That is a beautiful beetle, you guys have found :D

The rewind mechanic didn't seem to work for me (Chrome). Holding space just ramped up my CPU but everything stayed frozen. Apart from that, pretty fun game and it's nice that you made it with your kids.

Developer

Thanks for giving the game a try! We  only tested in Chrome, sorry it didn't work for you. We'll have to try a different key than Space next time.

Great job guys!! So fun to build a game with a 'little' help from dad!! Those sound effects though!! Top shelf. :-)

Developer

Thanks Matt! We are excited to play your game too.

Submitted

Great job everyone, Those were some cool bugs in level 8!

Thanks Mr Bun, if that is your real name, haha! We're going to try your game too!

Cute little game, the art and sound really needs work, but I really love how it was created by that lovely family!

Developer

Thanks for giving our game a try! Art and sound were a last minute effort, and the kids were exhausted by that point, but did their best and had a blast. Will try your game soon too.

Submitted

nice and simple game 

Submitted

Your initiative is really cool, the game is really interesting and fun, the mechanics are very simple to learn, maybe if you could implement something that better indicated the elastic to shoot the beetles, it would be better! However, great project! Then check out our project too!

Developer

Thanks for playing and great ideas to make the game better! We'll try your game too.

Submitted

Congratulations on your second game !!!

Thank you for playing all the levels RemStorms! We're excited to try Minority Record!

Poor beetles, I don't think they enjoy being thrown like that.

Haha good point, but we found out on Wikipedia that they are one of the largest flying insects! The ones we found were happy to play on our hands and arms and didn't seem to want to show off their flying skills.

Submitted

Fair enough ;D. Keep on doing games and learning!

Submitted

Very cute, good game considering the ages of some of those involved!

Developer

Thank you Cookie! We look forward to trying your game too.

Submitted
