Really lovely concept, well made game! I included it in my GameDevNetwork: The Big Festive Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)


Tahnk you so much for this video and for your feedback! Very appreciated! :)

I recommend putting the game rules in a little tutorial screen or at least in a readme file within the game. I had no clue what to do until I checked the tutorial page.

Regardless of that, this is a nice strategy game, and apparently you made it all with a custom engine. I have respect for devs who do that and can build a nice product in jam time, so be proud, and you got extra points for the linux port, as I promised. If I had to still improve something I'd be minor polishing, game balance and maybe a nice soundtrack? :3

Congratulations for this entry, I gave you an average 4.25/5.


Thanks so much! Indeed I spent some time making it with my own SDL based framework. I highly recommend doing it, since it is an awesome learning experience as well. 


Really neat game! Great work on the AI especially - some clearer instructions are much needed though, without the information on the game page I would've been clueless


Nice concept! it would be nice having commands and a explanation of what each structure does inside the game. I wish I had someone to play with me :( :(  :( 


I'm really not sure how to play this, as I can't understand which key allows me to place other objects beside the gold mine. Looks pretty interesting though!


Nice little strategy game there! It doesn't look like a fast-paced game at first, but I was wrong, haha. It was only until I read the description of the game that I understood what's going on. :) Maybe a good in-game description or tutorial will help a lot for future players. Some tweaks that could make an improvement to the game-play is adjusting the gold needed to build stuff and shoot, adding health to the base, etc.

Overall, it is a very good game!

P.S. Yup, I think it can be a good little mobile game, but of course it needs more polishing and some more contents. :)


Oh wow, i waited for the windows version(too lazy to try linux lol) but it was worth it!!! I personally think that a mobile version it will shine like a diamond , it's so fun and the AI is really balanced, the art is well fitted wit the style of the game.Can't wait to try with my friends! And it's also good partecipating with a compratiot. Very nice work! (now i'm going to install on linux)


Thank you so much for the kind words! About the mobile version: you made me want to make a port actually :)
