A very well executed tower defense with only one tower!

Great graphics and 8bit sfx and control feels smooth

The challenge of managing only one tower can be tough, but simple enough to know the consequences.

The boss fight is super fun! I realized that i could  utilize the down time to hit the boss!

Speaking about down time, i really like having something to do while my tower shoots, and collectingg gems fills just the role! I have to optimize between picking gems or moving my tower. Subtle but powerful!


Really hope to see a post-jam version of this idea

this is really nice. I had to finish this before I could do anything else :D

Very nice~!

I really love these genre twist games! I thought about trying to make a one tower TD game, but this was really well executed! Full score from me! <3

Very nice graphics and game! I included it in my GMTK Game Jam 2019 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Very cool game, I love the subtle tutorial on the start screen and the constant tension of choosing when to move the turret.

Submitted(+1)

Very polished! Love how you run faster while holding the turret - like in real life. :P Could be actually interesting I think, if the turret would still fire while moving it around, just much slower. Also I was kind of sad, that the upgrades did not carry over between levels. Would have loved ending up with the turret you showcase in the credits, haha! Lastly, take a look at this game, if you haven't already: it's also about moving around "only one" weapon for base defense and though it doesn't look as fancy as yours, I has some clever mechanics, that might inspire you for this game as well.

Very cool idea, good fun to play! I can imagine if it were a full game it would be great fun getting into the later levels with an ridiculous turret and lots of enemies.

Would definitely benefit from the turret getting some over the top visual changes for upgrades too, end up like a castle covered in guns.

Developer

Yeaaaa, we tried to have different visuals depending on the upgrade, but we ran out of time unfortunately. Thanks a lot for the feedback, we really appreciate it

Hey awesome game and very nice polish! I'm surprised a game like this doesn't already exist, it's a great idea. Hope you keep working on it after the jam!

Developer

Thanks a lot, we are really happy with this small gameplay loop too! We're going to release a few small improvements in the next few days :D

Submitted(+1)

This is awesome! I really like your take on the theme and the upgrades being scattered around adds another layer of depth. The art is very cute and I hope you keep working on this after the jam. Great work!

Developer

Thanks a lot! We are discussing about keep working on this project, maybe a small cute mobile game, let's see what the future holds for us :D

Submitted(+1)

So fun! I would play a full version of this

Developer

Thank you so much!

This was a very clever and adorable game. Considering the time constraints, this was a 5 star experience. More levels and depth with some music would make this a definite buy on the app store. Great job guys!

Developer

Thanks a lot for the feedback, we are really discussing about creating a complete version for mobile hahaha

(+2)

Yes, the game could really use polish, and of course the lack of music is really hitting, but it truely is very fun. The idea of a boss was really interesting and something you don't see that often in most TD games.

Developer

Thank you so much! Polish and music were things that we had to sacrifice because of the short time of the jam, unfortunately :(

But we're going to update in the next few days with a few polish updates :D, thanks a lot for the feedback, we really appreciate it!

I love the touch that your character moves faster while holding the turret. Truely brilliant. I tried to see if I could hit the 200 upgrade each round, even letting myself take some damage just so I could boost around the the turret.

Developer

Moving faster while holding the turret truly was a game changer. We'll work on an animation that makes you look faster as well in order to create a visual consistency with the buff in the future.

Quite theme fitting for a take on a genre already so diverse. Really cute art as well. Well done.

p.s.: you should propose arrows as alternate controls. AZERTY peeps shouldn't have to switch their keyboards to play :(

Developer(+1)

Thank you! We'll definitely add arrows as another way to control the character.

On a personal note, thank you for the compliments on the  art!  :)

Creative application of the theme that was genuinely fun to play. Would enjoy a full version of this game with persistent upgrades and skills.

Developer

Thanks! We're looking into ironing out the current state of the game so we can explore more ideas in the future.

Way to figure out the best idea you could come up with this theme. Really excellent work.

Developer

Thanks a lot Jon! You are indeed Awesome!

Submitted(+2)

So impressive and an amazing take on the theme. It was really fun getting to the end and I'd love to see more of this!

Developer(+1)

The end was my favourite part as well. I so much want a rapid fire turret in the future.

Submitted(+2)

It's the best game that i played on this game jam. I would like to see the full version. 3x5/5

Developer(+1)

Glad you enjoyed it! This was a blast for us to develop as well. So many ideas and mechanics :)

We'll make to balance the party hat in the future, though. It's too OP right now.

Developer

I will add a upgrade to the party hat! Double party hat it's the new meta babeeee!
