Nice graphics, well made game! I included it in my GameDevNetwork: Gooseberry Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Well done! Fun and entertaining levels. I appreciate the gradually increasing level of challenges across the levels.

Cool original mechanics in this one! Fun to place all the traps although it does feels a little too easy at times. Good job!

I simply love the fact that this is a complete game. Main Menu, SFX, Music, Level Select, Everything. not every gamejam entry is finished to that degree.

The Art style is simple, but beautiful.

I Also love that the game is a living tutorial, you slowly get new powerups and explanations on how to use them. very well done.

My only critique point is that the levels too simple, while you can solve them in cool and interesting ways, you usually end up placing a block with a spike on it. because that basicly solves 90% of the level. If that doesnt work, just put a flail on the spawn position and there you go.

Maybe you could instead limit the traps the player can use, instead of just limiting the area, or "upgade" the archeologists that come in, idk, just throwing ideas in here.


Anyways, all around fantastic game! loving it

Thanks for the support!

I'm aiming to make a full version of this game, and first of all there will be 4 more traps to use, secondly, there will be traps that you control but don't place (like the guards), and thirdly, I'm gonna make a scoring system which scores you depending on your time, variety of objects placed, etc.

Using the itch app the game wouldn't open, I downloaded the zip though manually and was able to play it like that.

Great job on everything, its a solid game and I really love the music and art style! I would play a longer version that got a little harder, but all the mechanics are there to make more! For one person this is awesome I feel for such short time.

Any level with the controllable people I never used any items. I was always able to kill him with nothing else. I'm not sure if that was really intended.

1. I don't know how to make it work with the itch app, I am not familiar with it.

2.  I know that this version is a little short, and the levels are a bit too easy.

3. Thanks so much for the support!

PS If you download the installer, it should work with the Itch app.

One of the few original games for the jam!

Problem: it only works when launched from Windows explorer. When trying to launch from Itch I get "application crashed. process exited with code 127"

First off let me just say I love the minimalist art style, Second I like that the puzzles are nice and short and to the point. I usually try to do some sort of complement sandwich, but im having a hard time finding something that i dont like in this game music, art, mechanics are all pretty good.  good job all around!!

Thank you so much! Besides for the few bugs, I feel that all I need to do now is make more content and the full version will be done.
