Pretty cool intro and style. It reminds me of the "We Need You" army poster. The main character looks slick, too. The game reminds me of this classic retro game that I can't remember. I think the only thing missing was sound, but I think the game is neat!

This is a very cool idea, both in theme and mechanically! I think it needs quite a bit of polishing up though. Right now, I think it's too difficult to position your character where they need to be to deal with the viruses--it feels really awkward to move around. I think you should be able to control the angle that the character launches at (so instead of always going straight across, you could choose a launch angle within some arc).

I think this is one of the best concepts of any of the games I've played so far, but the execution is not quite there yet. Just needs a little more thought about how to make your mechanic more fun to use.

Pretty cool.

But very confusing and difficult for me :(

Oh man they tricked me when they said I’d be working “alongside” the infinite star worm.

Cool game, although difficult. I like the aesthetic and the theme!

I like the idea as a frantic arcade game, similar to Super Hexagon. I think the mechanics are solid, but the cost of error, namely, locking up the controls while other objects continue accumulating, makes it really hard to bring a game back once you've been hit. With the "buttons" you have to leap across to, it wasn't always obvious when I would hit them, potentially due to a small hit box. The theme was kind of crazy, but I liked it!

Interesting idea. I really liked the start screen and intro animation, they gave a lot of character to the game.

Graphics are good bat.. I can’t see sound feedback and it’s difficult.

I quite like the idea. Color scheme is good looking. Graphics are great. Nice work!

Original idea and goes well with the theme.  I like the character animation before the game starts plus the game cover looks great, very like the Dune sandworms.
