Quite good! I think the combat is quite lacking: obviously the wrench feels a bit weak, but personally I think that a cooler change would be to instead make enemies stop moving every now and then. That way, it becomes a game of exploiting the aliens when they make themselves vulnerable, while still allowing them to feel erratic and threatening. Nothing to critique about the graphics: they feel quite authentic and provide good clarity. 

Obviously there is a lack of audio, but it almost works. Maybe if you did add it later, focus on ambient noises and the like to add to the atmosphere. Also, the screen shake when getting hit was cool, but a bit overdone: it was REALLY distracting. All complaints aside, really nice job!

Developer

thank you! good idea about the enemies movement. i'm working on v1.1 so i will test that out. i appreciate the feedback!

Pretty darn good for first game! Nice retro art and animation. Attack radius could have been bit longer.

Developer(+1)

thank you! v1.1 in development, with sounds and a slightly longer attack radius!

Submitted

The artwork is really great on this and I liked how impactful it felt when the aliens hit you. A short cooldown in between hits would help with difficulty a little bit, a single alien could hit you a few times in just a second if you were in a tight spot. 

Great job!

Developer

thank you! that's a good point you make. there's like 0.2 seconds of hitstun where you can't take damage, but that's obviously not nearly enough.

Looks great, a little too tough to kill things, but great start. Def needs some sound, but as we all know... only so much time in a day (or 2 days to be exact!)

Developer

thank you! haha those 2 days... i greatly underestimated how long it would take to get that boss battle working and i ran out of time! next time i will be more prepared

The idea is great, although it was challenging. Very unfortunate it didn't have music and sound I think it would've made it feel much better. It looks stunning!

Developer

thank you! yeah, some good alien sound effects would have really added a new dimension. need to sharpen up my workflow so that i have enough time to include sound in the next jam!

Very nice look to the game! I love the detail that you put into the graphics for each room. I thought the game was a bit too difficult; the wrench is just too short!

Developer(+1)

thank you! it is a bit difficult. i wanted you to feel like the aliens were stronger than you, but maybe i went a little overboard. you don't actually have to kill all the aliens. especially relevant for the final boss room - you just have to kill the mouth.

Nice controls and melee attack!  Work on it some more if you feel the motivation~

Developer (1 edit)

thank you! i had meant to at least put some sound in, but i ran out of time, so maybe i should get around to that

The gameboy look is well done !

Developer

thank you! my main (only) reference was pokemon.
