For those who joined the jam, it was the bestest fun ! I tried to go through as much as I could to rate but there were still many good ones I missed. But really, thank you all for making such good games, it was a pleasure to play them all. (For those who're here for fun, hit up the (post) version, it's very slightly better, ahaha)

oh nooooo this one was so good!!!!!! iron ferret!!!!!!! the interplay between being in your tank and out of it was so interesting. leaping out to grab some ammo and leaping back in felt so feral. loved going into the tight passageways to get health or whatever, leaping over some spikes. being able to squeak as the ferret was a really cute little touch! i thought this was great and has so much potential to be expanded beyond! simple modular and adorable. <3

One of the best games I've seen in the whole GBJAM. Really fun to play, challenging, no bugs, really cute and simple idea. I loved it!

I just loved it.. Ferret + Mecha = <3

Couldn't play on my Mac since it says file is damaged.. So I asked a colleague to play on his PC. Worth it, haha :-D

Ah, I got that error too ! Apparently it's because of mac's very stringent security. To get it working you'll need to pop into the terminal and disable the gatekeeper from there (but turn it back on after you're done). This will allow apps from 'anywhere' other than the app store and identified developers. After that you might also get an 'unable to find game' error to which just move the iron ferret app to any other different folder and run it. It should be fine after that and you can move it back to the original folder. Thanks for checking it out too <3

What a cute ferret. Really nice game. Controlling the ferret feels really smooth and the jump/dodge is cool I could roll around all day :D. It's so awesome you can squiek ✪ ω ✪!!!!  Also the tutorial on the ground is a nice idea and works pretty well. Nice job!

Cute game! Very well done sticking to the 3 colour limitation on the sprites! That's a highly commendable aspect in my book.

i was in love with the pricipal character and the gameplay super cool!

The overall look of the game is fantastic :) The gameplay mechanics were a bit too simplistic for me...

This is lovely! The presentation is top-notch, I love how bouncy the ferret and tank animations are. I really like how both the ferret and tank have different strengths and abilities, And I love how the ferret is shot out of the tank turret when you want to dismount. The initial push-back effect when entering the tank is also greatly appreciated.
I feel like maybe the ferret-launch and dodge roll are a bit long distance-wise, there are times where I shot/rolled myself into off-screen danger.
This feels like a lost Blaster Master game. I had a great time playing, cheers!

Aw gosh, glad you enjoyed it <3 That's a fair point though, I think if I were to change anything about that it would be to make the screen bigger, maybe one day after the jam ahaha ~

Excellent game. Every area is at least great, the visuals being the cherry on top of a very fun mecha ferret themed cake! The level design is clever, in an ideal world I'd have loved to see even more creative uses of the dismount mechanic. 22/25

This is great! It feels really good to play, with a clear difference between the ferret and the tank. Controls on the floor are a nice touch.

One of the best entries this year! Everything plays nice! I really like that the fact that you have to get out of the tank to get the stuff, changes the flow of the game.  Well done!

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