Well, this style of acid party definitely has a charm. The mechanics of shooting with hearts looks unusual and fresh. Music is nice. And this is an interesting feeling when I made friends with a space shark or a hare :D

Thanks, that's what I was going for haha. Glad you liked it and made some friends in the process ;)

It felt weird but also rewarding once I figured out what's the deal here. I appreciate the fact that some modern developers don't explain every tiny detail even though that's the norm now. :P The graphics were simple but nice, and the (occasional?) sounds were fitting. Good job!

This was my first game so I was experimenting a bit. There's a delicate balance between revealing too much and too little, I think. I don't like to give too much away haha. So thanks, I appreciate that feedback.

I like visuals and atmospere, but for me it's too hard, i didn't managed to play it till the end.

Thanks vxx1, I'm working on trying to get the gameplay balance right.

You'd better write some hints how to play your game. Because at first it's really frustrating - I don't know why I am got killed. It took some time to sort things out. :)

Thanks Dener. I was hoping that part of the fun would be in figuring the game mechanics out. From most of the feed back I've received unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the case. It's a very short game, so I don't want to include a tutorial. I might just have some footage of the gameplay looping when people aren't playing so that you can get an idea of how it works. Kind of like PacMan used to do.

Наркомания какая-то на экране. But I kinda like it.

Thanks Sergey
