It was rather well put-together, save for two problems. I didnโ€™t care for having to push a button to go into โ€œshoot modeโ€, when all it really does is make you zoom in. It makes more sense to just have z shoot normally without the added step, especially since you can still walk around while zoomed. Secondly, way too short. Short isnโ€™t inherently a problem, but a 70+ mb game that you can finish in <5 minutes feels pretty dang weird. Still, with more levels and a bit of polish this one could be really good.

Nice animations for the main character! I included it in my compilation video of all of the games in this jam, if youโ€™d like to take a look. :)

Developer

Thanks for the compliment and for making the video <3

It was really good, I appreciate. I saw that you have used Music Maker Jam for your musics :D.

It's a complete game according to me, because, you have the attention to detail, like the tremor when you are in the final boss, I hope that you have the time to work on this project, because You have a lot of idea.

Thanks for the review :D. I had exams so I could not work too much on this game.

It's not complete because of the following reasons:

  • It does not have an intro.
  • There are 5 bosses planned, only 1 has been implemented.
  • Some art is placeholder.
  • I need to make more music.
  • Multiplayer is not implemented.
  • Level Editor is not implemented.
  • Achievements are not implemented.
  • Additional polish.

I read and appreciate every single comment. Happy to hear from you.

P.S: I saw that you added this game on your front page in a column called "Retro Games". Thanks a lot for that!

So I'm done with this game. Totally gave this giant slime of a virus a trashing.

Although I'm not sure how fun it is to MAKE, fighting a virus on the Win desktop was pretty cool, but didn't last long as you decided to take your nice pixel art somewhere else.

A keyboard/mouse combo would really make the controls easier.

Keep in mind that you have only destroyed 1 out of the 5 viruses ;)

I hope you are kidding because I was there and I applied anti-bacterial soap all over my keyboard. So, does it mean there are going to be sequels?

Developer

Not exactly sequels, it's gonna be a part of this game.

Believe it or not, I tried this game via MS Remote Desktop, which convinced me never to do it again.

Okay somehow going to get access to a PC as this really does not do justice to all these games!

Developer

MS Remote Desktop is pretty weird if you ask me xD.

It's streaming video so not ideal for playing games. But with high enough bandwidth could have been okay. Maybe the AWS PC I rented wasn't powerful enough also. But finally I got to play it on a "real" PC.
