This game greatly surpassed my expectations to be sure. It's pretty simple, yet very addictive and everything just works (did I just quote Todd Howard?). The concept of Dodo avenging its race is pretty silly but weirdly adorable at the same time and thanks to the upgrade system I just kept on playing just to get that sweet shotgun (which is awesome btw.). The controls work pretty nice too and need some time to get the hang of them, which is good, so the player doesn't immediately feel like the game's too easy. Just wish it was a bit longer, so I could upgrade my Dodo even more, but well, it's a jam game so it's understandable. 

Really good job and fun game!

Developer

Thanks. Unfortunately with the strict time limit I wasn't able to get silly guns like a reverse firing gun, rocket launger, grenade launcher, and other things. Maybe after the voting and judging period, I'll go back and do some fun things!

Really cool and cute game, good job! I love how silly and random it is, yet you managed to tie it all together nicely. I also love the sounds! Not to mention the lovable artwork (especially the dodo! <3). Although the mechanic itself is not too original, but it works really well with this game and you did a great job making this game :D

Also I would really appreciate it if you checked out my entry for the jam: Sheepherd Dog. Thanks in advance! :)

Thanks about the artwork. I really slapped that together and I'm not a pixel artist... Wish I was!

I'll be sure to check your game!

Thank you so much for following me! I would love it if you would check out my work-in-progress Android app: Switch Run. I'm writing a devlog for it and I'd love to hear your feedback! Thanks in advance :)

This was some crazy trip. I don't know how you came up with it, but that's pretty original. I liked it!

Thank you so much! I wrote a few thoughts on Twitter and my Blog if you'd like to read my thoughts!

That is a fresh concept, little bit more development you could have a good game on your hands. 

Do you wish to take it further? Maybe if you worked on it some more you could improve the mechanics and release this as a full title. 

Developer

Hey there!

I had plans for even crazier weapon variety and more randomness for drops and upgrades similar to other twin-stick shooters.

I'll give it more thought on what I can do to improve it. Maybe when the Jam judging is over!

This game is one of the best I've played in this jam

This game is one of the most creative I've seen HAHAHA It took me a little bit to understand how to play but it was my fault not the game's. Congratulations on your submission. Great game, really funny and original concept

I love dodos A LOT (They are my favorite animal in ARK)! It's fairly random conceptually, but this makes the game hilarious and super fun to play. Took me a while to figure out how the mechanics worked, but it was AWESOME! Loved it sooooo much.

Developer(+1)

Oh wow... Thank you! I was so worried it was more frustrating than fun. But I'm glad I hit that balance! Again, thank you for playing and rating my game!

This is so much fun! I needed to get used to the firing method a bit, but in the end i was able to avenge my dodos!!!! \o/

Developer

Thank you! I was worried a bit about game balance, but I added a lot of randomization to help relieve that. Glad you had fun! I had a blast making it!

This was an absolute BLAST. I laughed so hard the whole time! The theme is implemented well and the spacebar-only mechanic doesn't feel forced and it even lets you strategize once you get used to it! (Even though I just go in berserker mode and charge the pirates knowing that I'll get hurt but that's besides the point). Well done! :D

Developer(+1)

Thanks so much! I had bigger ideas of adding guns that fire backwards, a minigun, and even a rocket launcher... But I ran out of time!

hilarious and fun!  loved the aesthetic! 

Developer

Thank you so much! I was worried it was going to be too hard!
