Ranked from 15 ratings. Score is adjusted from raw score by the median number of ratings per game in the jam.

In what way does your game fit the theme?
At the beginning of the game we play as the only member of the swarm. By killing the enemy, we free up allies. The swarm increases in size. The size of the swarm determines the player's damage.

Did you write all the code yourself and made all the assets from scratch?
Spiders and grass assets we've get on a free license. Everything else were made from scratch (also music).

This is a a really fun game and a good use of the theme. I like how fast it is and the camera movements feel nice as you move around. One issue I had was I couldn't get very far because the spiders are able to remove the orbs they drop when they run into them. This made it really hard to evade spiders while also picking up orbs. It would also be helpful if Spiders always gave the red glow. Sometimes the glow disappears and makes the spiders harder to see. 

Otherwise really great game!

A very cool shooter! Seemed little too hard, though. Camera movement is really nice. It would be useful to visualize the map borders to help the player plan his actions. Enjoyed playing it, great job!

This game is really challenging. Camera angle and movement made environment feel realistic

Really cool game, I had lots of fun. Really beautiful too, the light and the ground's perspective. I can't fully explain, but these two together look good, and gave me a sense of speed.  A few suggestions for future versions. Have the player start out with something like three spheres, just so they don't die on the first few seconds. Also, I am not sure if it was a bug, but the white spheres were vanishing really quickly (maybe enemies touching them?), that was frustrating. But anyways, the game is really fun, congrats to you guys.

it is a fun game but I think enemies are too fast you can slow that down a little bit at least in the start then you can make them move faster later in the game .great game.keep going:)

I liked the game, but the area the player can view should be more I think. Also the spiders can also be a little bit more brighter. And maybe auto shoot feature also. :P

Try out my game if you get time. It's also a little bit hard. xD.

Thanks for feedback! Totally agree with you )
