Fun game with well done aesthetics.

Thank you so much!

the game looks amazing! it's obvious that whoever worked on this game spent a lot of time polishing it. unfortunately, i can confirm the bug mentioned in the other comment. if you fire and press enter very fast, the enemy kind of skips their turn. after using this bug, i got stuck at the first level. but this is just a bug and can be fixed. this game you've done in 48 hours is really impressive! you should be proud. i'm giving it a full rating

Developer(+1)

That's so sweet! Thank you! I tried to iron out all the bugs before submitting but I just didn't run across that one. I will try to figure out what did that and fix it after the game jam ends.

This game is great, love the turn based games, very difficult to code in though suprised that the game was able to be made in such a short amount of time. Polish feels great too. Dialog is great, love the sounds that this game has. It was also easy to figure out how to play this complex game too. Great job teaching the player all of the mechanics at the start. Would have been better if the game auto progressed each level, instead of the player having to press a button. But other than that this game is great.

Developer(+1)

Thank you so much! That means a lot! I was worried it would go too fast if there wasn't a button prompt to go to the next level but I may be wrong. I will definitely try it out without one.

I don't have much to say about this game more than it's a fun turn-based strategy game which could use some more mechanics. It does apply to the theme, but it's not a very original concept.

Developer

Thank you for the feedback. It definitely could have used more work

Great turn based game. At first I did not understand how to go to the next level, but everything is fine.
Well done!

I will be glad if you can take a look at our game. We actually have the same name: https://itch.io/jam/gmtk-2019/rate/460954

Developer

Thank you! I could definitely have done a better job at explaining the controls.

I just checked out your game and left a rating. It reminds me of super meatboy but with an iphone game aesthetic but in a good way.

Submitted(+1)

Really nice use of the turn based mechanic and great execution!

And the contextualised tutorial makes things really easy to learn, great job!

Developer

Thank you! I feel like tutorials make or break games so I tried to make a good one.

Submitted(+1)

The controls take a while to figure out. Levels are well done and make you think about next move. I like the graphics and sound. Cool game! Good work!

Developer

Thank you so much!

Hmmm, I can't seem to proceed to the second level... I destroy that first tank and the game just sits there, am I missing something?

Developer(+1)

The first level is just the tutorial. Press E to move on to the next level.

Ahhh press E, gotchya!

Hey, got through a few levels now, very cool game! It's fun to see another tactics game in the jam. I thought the healing was really critical and felt like a smart addition.

Developer

Thank you! I think that simplicity is the only way I could make a good game in 48 hours.

Submitted(+1)

I love the aesthetics and portraits! However, the controls are quite cumbersome for me. I'd welcome to have "E" bound to same action as return key, so that I can play with one hand.

Developer

Thank you! The controls definitely need some working on!

Submitted(+1)

Really cool, love these kind of puzzle games. Gonna play some more of it later ;)

Developer

Thank you so much! I hope you get to finish it!

This is a pretty fun tank game, I got a strong Advance Wars wibe from this one

Developer

Thank you! I loved Advanced Wars growing up so I decided to pull from it for the aesthetic!

nostalgia of my childhood games... amazing work dev 

Developer(+1)

Nostalgia was exactly what I was going for!

all the best for the rest of the jam

This game is really fun! I like the strategy involved with the game. Trying to plan your moves around your enemy's moves is great! I did get a bit stuck once I'd finished the first level. How do you move to the next one?

On a side note, the picture of the engineer looks like my grandma in the 1940s. Where did you find those photos?

Developer

I'm glad you liked it! The picture is actually of American WW2 spy Claire Maybelle Snyder.

Then I guess the low resolution is tricking my brain.


Thanks for the fun game.

Fun game that I really enjoyed once I got into the strategy part of it. My only real complaint is that the intro makes it so it takes awhile to get into the game. It would've have been nice if clicking displayed the entire text (skipping the scrolling) instead of skipping to the next section of text.

Developer

Thank you so much!! The intro is pretty long, I should have made it more brief.

Love the 80's vibes :)

Old school is best school!

Amazing game! Rated as one of the best.

Developer

That means so much! Thank you!!

Submitted(+1)

I really enjoyed the game! The only thing that got kinda annoying was when I accidently selected a wrong move, got shot and had to replay the entire level.

Developer

Thank you Psychpsyo! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I tried to make the restart time very fast so you can quickly jump back in and try again!

Submitted(+1)

Control is more difficult than looks, but game is awesome! Pixel graphic are cute!

Great work!

Developer

I really appreciate that! I'm no artist so I spend maybe a little too much time making the assets, but it turned out nice I think!

Submitted(+1)

Nice job! Easy to understand, but hard to master.

Developer

Thank you BobGames1215! I'm glad you enjoyed your experience with it!

Submitted(+1)

I don't usually like strategy games......But this was one I found particularly interesting. Very good overall. Especially with sticking to the theme since you allowed only one-action at a time

Developer

Thank you! I tried to bring the strategy feel into the puzzle world if that makes any sense.
