Talking points of your game
I tried to use the theme to make a mechanic where there are tradeoffs to the long reach of having a large sword.

Great placement and balance of enemies. Absolutely nailed the theme, would love to see more of this! Excellent work!

Super simple yet surprisingly solid gameplay loop. With more polish would be a solid app game or online flash game.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback!

Fun concept! simplist but efficient...what is the nature of the background?

Developer

Thanks! The background is a cartoonised version of this texture: https://texturehaven.com/tex/?t=aerial_grass_rock (I probably should've put this under the assets used)

Great concept! It will be cool to see it as an app for mobile phones!

Developer

I was thinking the same. Thanks for the feedback!

Interesting concept, the main problem I see is that I can just remain in the short form since that takes care of all incoming enemies. I can see how that would change if there were blobs that had more health that the short sword couldn't kill by itself. Nicely done.

Developer

Yeah, the short sword takes care of most enemies early game (especially if the small blobs don't spawn often). Playing around with the health and damage is a great suggestion. Thanks!
