Judge feedback

Judge feedback is anonymous.

  • Simple game design with some VFX thrown in like the water and such, the game is challenging, however, I believe controls should have been more refined.

    Overall graphics and audio could have been a little bit more refined.

    If the zanga theme was about using simple controls then it might stick to the theme.

The character and the animation and its name is amazing, well done :)
Good Luck


i like the game idea, simplicity of the controllers and for sure the level design. really great work 


Thanks for your positive feedback! Appreciated.


A very nice entry! I didn't understand the connection to the theme very much, but aside from that, I had fun playing this :) The level design is a particular highlight. The graphics are all right, and something that can perhaps be improved is to have the goal of the levels be related to onions in some way, but aside from that, a very nice entry!

Good luck in the jam!


Thanks for your feedback, The theme was Minimalism, so I decided to use 3 objects only ( onion, bomb and grinder blade) to design levels with a lot of variety, ideas and difficulties. the game is inspired by Mario Maker with simpler and basic elements. 


this game has actually something almost all zenga games are missing, it has "GAMEPLAY" and i congratulate you for that, the sound fits the graphics perfectly and level design is not that bad

all i can suggest is to maybe add a story since you have a very specific character and specific set of skills, and maybe also polish it abit with gfx and better "juice"

really nice work, i think its in my top 5 this year . goodluck!


Theanks for you positive detailed feedback on the game. I am happy to recieve such comments. I would like to have more elaboration on the Level Design since i personally think it is what makes makes Basala one of the TOP entries for this year. plz :) 


Nice Game

Excellent Levels Design

Cool Water

Great Job


Thanks and Happy you like it. 


Nice Game, Really Liked the concept fits well with the theme!
It's so hard to beat with those lifes tho, but still good, Maybe add a difficulty choice if there will be any updated versions!

Wish you the best of luck!

Thanks for trying my game. So happy that you liked it. 


I really enjoyed this. The controls were satisfying, and the spongy water effects and particles look soo cool! And the level goal is innovative! I made it to level 8 after many tries.


Thanks for your feedback. Appreciated.

Really addicting and fun gameplay. My little brother really enjoyed beating it (took him around 5 hours 😅, level 11 was dark souls difficulty he says 😂)


I am glad to hear that, very honored to be honest! What are your games? you and your little brother ? I will try them for sure.
