In what way does your game fit the theme?
Aliens gravitate toward each other and bunch up. When they bunch up together, their gravitational pull is much stronger.

Did you write all the code yourself and made all the assets from scratch?
All code and graphics were made by us from scratch. Sound was not.

I LOVE the game. I think the art is cute and the sound effects/music are cool. The Game mechanic is awesome and fun to play around with but it really is uncomfortable to get sucked into a big chunk of enemies and not having much control when sucked in. You can't escape the enemies when you are sucked in. I rated everything 5/5. I rate the Game: LEGENDARY

Oh wow we are really honored by your high rating!

Yea, when the alien blobs get large and suck you in, it is really punishing. Next time we will try not to make the game so punishing - while still keeping the game interesting :)

The art was done by Samantha Munro (my wife). Sound effects were us making random noises and my wife editing it :P Music was from a free source (credited in the main page of the game).

We loved the drawings and the style. The aliens are cuteness overload. SFX are awesome too. We had a lot of fun and some good laughs while dying.

Controls are super hard but also somehow thats part of the fun. Gravity is too high too soon so gameplay cant develop properly, besides that, really cool project!

All the best from the Wilma & Buddy Team

Thanks for playing! We are glad you had fun playing it :)

Yup the gravity is punishing! I think if we continue working on the game, we would probably make it so that you can last longer and only face really big groups later in the game.

Graphics are adorable, sfx is really funny and fit the game well and the bg music is dope. The concept of the game as well is pretty great because it's both sad and funny. I really wish I could control Lucy better with the brrrrrr because I lose really fast. It would feel pretty cool if the brrrrrr was stronger since I could escape the closest of situations. I still had a good laugh and enjoyed the game!

Developer

Thanks for playing and the feedback :) 

Yes for sure in hindsight the brrrrrr needs to be adjusted to make the game a bit easier. Glad you enjoyed it! :)

I love the art style. The controls were a bit hard, but I think that they captured the feel of the game pretty well. Also, the sound effects are pretty good. The only thing that I would change is the font. It looks so much better when you use a different font. 

Developer

Thanks for the kind feedback :)

Regarding the font: yup, we always leave the game text for last and then forget to get or make different fonts. Hopefully next time we will pay a little more attention to this.

Very cute art style and interesting gameplay. And i like it character control.

Developer

Thank you for playing!

Love the artstyle and the munching sound when the bullet hits the aliens, really satisfying :)

Control is a bit difficult though.

Developer

Yea we wanted to capture a helpless feeling of trying to control oneself in space, but maybe made it a bit too difficult :o

Thanks for playing!

I like the take on the team, were the enemies are stronger together instead of the player. The sound effects made me laugh! The steering/movement was a bit frustrating, but does have a 'movement in space' feel to it, so good job! 

Developer

Glad you enjoyed it :) thanks for playing!

I love the art and the concept. It's a bit difficult to control, but I think that's the idea, always loose, the inevitable lost agains those space-alien-monster-cosmic-world-devourer-things u.u

Developer(+1)

Haha yip. We wanted it to be a bit frustrating but in a fun way

Submitted

Really charming art! Also loved the "pew" sound. Great job!

Developer

Haha that was self recorded, glad you liked it :)

Art was all done by my wife :)

Really loved the concept, great idea. Sometimes I felt a bit confused and helpless when enemies came towards my head, but maybe that was my fault because of getting into that situation. Good job, and a nice "inversion" of the theme.

Developer

Haha yea it is difficult because to rotate yourself you often land up going faster into the enemies. After some practive you kind of get a hang of it.

Thanks for playing!

Submitted

Woah cool idea!! This is some creative stuff you made there!

Developer

haha thanks :)

Submitted

Great concept!

Developer(+1)

Thanks :)

cool game! I like that you implement the theme with the enemies, but that it effected the player. Movement was a little difficult, which in turn made the shooting hard because you couldn't shoot above your head (which realistically makes sense, just made it challenging). Overall, good job!

Developer(+1)

Thanks!

Wow nice I like it, hard tho
