It'd be really cool if you could respec your abilities, it would make it so much easier to experiment with skills. I absolutely loved the game, and really got into building the 'perfect deck'. I tried a single sword, with rest teleport, but that couldn't work out on an early level, which is why I wish I could respec, so that I could build up my arsenal without worrying about dying on early levels with experimental decks. Also, the grenade felt really underpowered, to the point of being useless. The levels also felt pretty tight, and at one point, a single wrong upgrade screwed me over (why'd I upgrade the sniper, I needed sword!) All that criticism may not sound too friendly towards the game, but I seriously loved it. The sounds, the strategy, even the minimalist graphics, all played a part in making that awesome experience. Good job, I only wish that I found the end.

P.S. I just had an epiphany. What if you could see the next level whilst preparing? Add in some foresight to the game, and you've got some deep strategy to really sell the puzzle!

Developer

I'm already planning to add that feature, plus letting the player have more cards but thay still can only use five of them in each battle!

Thank you so much for the feedback!!

Fun game! Reminds me a bit at the XCOM games. Only issue I had is that you will only survive if you upgrade the right abilities which I feel is something you need to gamble. So often I had to restart completely because I accidentally chose the wrong ability for the next level. 

Developer

Thank you for the feedback!

This was so much fun and smooth to play. The audio is great and the freedom of choice makes it great to play again and again. I was hoping to Sniper-Only my way to freedom, but alas, they overpowered me.

I really enjoyed the "deck building"! Full points!

Pretty good submission!

I sunk more time into this than expected - I love the upgrade system combined with the one life mechanic! I found myself keeping track of previous runs that failed for some reason or another so I could get a bit further.

This is a great game! I had a lot of fun playing it :) I really love the concept, well done! I also love the art and audio, thumbs up! This is a really cool concept, and could be explored even more! But for a jam game this is amazing! (I just hope you take the concept further, perhaps in  a post-jam game :) )Well done, you earned a high rating from me! Keep up the amazing work! :D

Developer

This concept is going to go a lot further!

I'm planning to continue develop this game after the jam! :D

Fun game! breaks on full screen though.

Developer (1 edit)

How did it break? and did you play the web or exe version?

and what screen resolution do you have?

The main character gets so happy when you win! I LOVE IT! I really liked the struggle between upgrading or getting new cards! Well thought out! Would make for a really cool mobile game! I'd drain my battery a lot playing different scenarios! Great submission!

Would love if you could check mine out too! Or not, no pressure ;) https://itch.io/jam/gmtk-2019/rate/462672?after=20#post-876644

Sorry to ruin your battery but the web version actually works on smartphones. it's super bugy but it works!

Submitted(+1)

Wow! That is such a cool game! I love the motivation I get every time I die to try again and choose my abilities differently. Amazing job!

this is good...game ...it hooked me for a while

all the best for the rest of the jam

Will do!

This title is very fun and strategic. I like having to think about everything before I do it. I would love to play more of this.

Developer(+1)

I'm going to continue develop this game. So dont worry more is coming!

Submitted

And, followed!

This is a really cool game, I love many things about it, well done ! :D
I know the "only one life" sticks to the theme but the fact there's only 1 turn is already enough, and it's a bit frustrating to loose instantly (but hey, it's also a sign it's a good game if we want to go further).
The simple art is really perfect for your design, congrats for making this !

Developer(+1)

Let's hope that the next years theme is only two so you can have an extra life ;)

One of my favorite games yet!

The game is very polished and fun to play. A negative point for me is that I have to start from the beginning when I lose, and I have to do all the levels again. There could be a checkpoint every 5 levels for example.

I think this game has a potential for a bigger version with more features :)

Developer(+1)

But the theme is only one, so you have only one life in this game!  Also I wanted the player to experiment with different combinations of abilities.

 I will definitely continue develop this game! Thanks for the feedback :D

Submitted(+1)

An interesting take on the theme. Reminded me of the evil spirit exorcism mini-game in Mega Man Battle Network 6 except with only one turn! My only criticism is that I wish I could see the scenario before choosing or upgrading my abilities.

Developer

That's a great idea! I will definitely implement it in future version of the game. :D Thank you for the feedback!

Annoying how you have to restart from the beginning if you make a mistake

Best game i've played all jam! Amazing work! There were a few technical hiccups when i played but not enough to stop me from having an awesome time. I hope you keep working on the game even after the jam, I am definitely a fan.

Developer

I glad you liked it! I will  definitely do that!
