In terms of Gameboy-ness and graphics, this is one of the best games in this jam!!

The lack of audio didn't really bother me, but of course, it ends up affecting the whole experience! Although, the graphics and accuracy to the original game almost make you forget that there is no music or sound in the game. 

I'm not a fan of the Advance Wars/Fire Emblem type of games, but, and I can't mention it enough, the graphics made me glued to the screen just so I could see all those animations!

Great job on it, overall but very big kudos on the feel and the visuals!!

Man, what an entry! Played two rounds together and had a lot of fun! Listened to the Advance Wars and Advance Wars: Days of Ruin soundtracks while playing and it fit perfectly!

The only thing we noticed was, that the winning team is switched, so unfortunately according to the game you lose when you beat the other team :D

Hey! If you update this need music or sound let me know! It would brighten this good game up more!

Submitted

Yeah! I can finally play this :D
Excellent work on visuals, but I would like to see more effects as visual feedback. Good work on the UI too, it is not easy to show that much info in such a tiny screen.

One of the most impressive games if we talk about graphics and fun, it is pretty well done and it catches the style of the Advance Wars series pretty well. (It kinda fits with the music of those games too lol)

Although the game is pretty good, I can't score it for music. I don't know if it's just a bug or it really doesn't have it. Either way, well done!

Developer(+1)

Sadly, we didn't have enough time to make some music for the game... After the jam's done we plan to add it tho!

Submitted

It's fine! Thank's for the feedback.

PS: Feel free to try my game out! Cheers!

There seems to be a few visual feedbacks missing and the addition of some sounds would be welcomed, but what you have here is very solid in gameplay and the spritework and animations are very well done !

Developer

Thanks for the kind words! About the feedback, we do have hit and explosion vfx, but couldn't implement them on time. You know, jam-style

Submitted

Cool game!

Developer(+2)

You're cool!

Love the battle animations, transitions and overworld sprites. While pressing B to switch between units is nice it would be a big plus to just be able to hold arrow keys to make it easier to see over whole map. 

Developer

Suggestion noted! We're planning on polishing it up a bit after the jam's done.

Developer

I implemented the hold to move but then I had to disable it while implementing other stuff and never had the chance to integrate all together :(

Submitted

Fun little game!  Be sure to check mine out!

Developer (1 edit)

Will do!

Fun but it doesn't seem to have music :(

Developer

Thanks! We didn't have enough time, unfortunately :c
