Nice game, I like the atmosphere.

The sound is a bit anoying. The enemies are too strong, the enemies should be less stupid and understand walls. A little pathfinding is not hard to implement I think and will add a lot. The game is a bit repetitive too.

Developer

Thank you for the feedback!

Yep, this one reminds me of a little game I used to play (don't exactlyremember the name). I like the idea of being able to defend myself using anything at my disposal.

You know what would be even more fun!? Throwing spiders at the spiders ;D

Great game!

Enemies felt a bit too strong (brown spiders from 3HP to 2HP or even 1HP if you wished to adhere to theme). Some power ups would be welcome too. Also some obvious hints, who/where (such as footprints) etc. took the shoe would so be nice.

I played, rated and gave feedback-commented your game, please, do the same for mine. My game is mix of narrative based with top down shooter and has profound ideas about life (if you reach the end). Use left mouse button to shoot and arrows to move. Remember to collect power ups. 

Developer

Thank you for the feedback! We actually thought about adding power ups, but did not have enough time for that

The right priorities (the core idea, game mechanics and visuals/audio, which supports the former 2) and acceptable preparation (such as BASIC code, where to find sound effects, music etc. for free) is the key in my opinion. Although this is my 1st GameJam, these things helped me a lot, especially because I had a job during weekend (Fr-Sun), so I could work on the game only 16 h (instead of 25-30 h) and was EXHAUSTED. Also the idea was SO persistent, moreover, because I do not like horror games and game like this VERY unlikely be my main project. This game was possible, BECAUSE it was short GameJam.

I enjoyed it however I felt that their just weren't enough objects for fighting to be an acceptable strategy

Cool game, I had fun! Tenuous link to the theme though, I think. Nice work!

Submitted(+1)

This was really fun! I just think the enemies should have less health, Good job.

I think I would just burn the shoe and the basement down. Fun game! I should have read the description before playing though

The game is fun and plays really well.

I took some time to undestand that you could pickup the objects to throw (yeah, i didnt read the game's description hehe).

Submitted(+3)

Nice game although managed to complete without throwing anything. Felt like throwing didn't do much to stop the spiders.

Thanks for  feedback, we really appreciate it.

Game is cool.

Loosing my shoe in spider infested basement is like one of my worst nightmares. I found it tho. Good job!

Submitted(+1)

Found the shoe!

The game is pretty nice, I liked the art style and music. My only complaint would be that SFX are a bit too loud.

Developer

Thank you for the feedback!

those are some tanky roaches! :)

Submitted(+1)

The feeling of throwing a lot of items in a row, when they are stacked is great!

Simple idea, not super sure it fits the theme though (we fire only one item at the time?) but had fun playing it anyway ; and seriously, throwing a 3310 to roaches' face rocks.

Glad you liked the game.

Difficult with a cute pixel art and a working menu.

A great result for 48 hours of work.

The idea is not very original, but still congratulations on the result.

Submitted(+1)

Sadly only one level, but fits some kind of only one then, hehe. Funny idea! Maybe you can continue the work and add some nice features! :)

(+1)

Thank you for feedback, we will think about creating new levels and features, but firstly wee need to fix some bugs.

Submitted(+1)

I like how the level is constructed, I feel like the speed, position, and quantity of enemies are just right to highly discourage cheesing the level. When I saw the Nokia phone I thought it would be an indestructible item, for the memes, but I guess not :(

Developer (1 edit)

We had an idea to create some kind of a power up with that model :D, but sadly, there was not enough time :/
