Cute game! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the GBJam 5 games, if you'd like to take a look :)

This is adorable! Really nice graphics and novel gameplay. Lots of fun, except that I felt really bad constantly leading my band members into danger. :D

Really cute. I was never quite sure what formation to use though. Not that I could even remember them all. Great job.

LOL I loved this one! Cute in all the ways!

As other have said, excellent entry! Tight concept, the graphics are lovely, and the game's experience seems very complete. You nailed the GameBoy feel as well, congratulations on that. The game was a little bit hard for me (as for others), but keeping a band together in heavy incoming traffic is probably not an easy thing to do. ;)

Thanks for the comments, everyone!

@goldenbeard I really wanted to do this but it was a miracle I even managed to write the 3 tunes that are in there before the deadline

@VirtuaWave This was actually the plan originally; to have obstacles that require a certain amount of band members to progress past to reach the end of the level. I didn't have time to implement it, unfortunately

Cute game with an interesting mechanic! It's waaaay too hard for me (I only managed to break zero once, and even then it was only with 50 points), but it's a really solid idea. It's also one of the most "gameboy"-like entries I've seen so far!

This is great! I hope you revisit it, I'd love to see what it could become!

This would also be perfect with music that becomes more "complete" the more band members you have!

Really nice, very good sprite art, great music, good gameplay idea.


I just noticed there is no way to fail. Maybe make like you have to have a min amount of band members to continue the next level?

Awesome little game! The art and the music are amazing!

It really is quite challenging to end with any points left.

Excellent entry. Congratulations!

Brutal, I love the music and art style

Art and music were top notch! While the gameplay was a little bit hard, it was definitely worth the effort to get a score at all on the last level (damned tornadoes). Loved it !

Great graphic art and music but gameplay is farly hard to master. A great and cute entry overall.

pretty hard, but the children are so cute

Love the sprite art, music, and concept. It's pretty tough to get used to the key combinations and formations, but that makes it feel like a challenge from the GameBoy era where you would just keep trying until you got it down. Wonderful entry!

difficult lol

I love your game. The art is great, that lead character is super cute and all the band members are super cute. The music's really fun too.

I lost a lot of band members, but your gameplay concept is really solid.
