Looks like a lot of programming work. Creative puzzles. Well done!

Interesting. It needs a lot more moving tiles to handle the water imo.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! Trying to make good levels was actually a huge time sink, so I didn't have a chance to make more than 3 basic "learn how this mechanic works" sort of levels- I'd love to take the time to make some more advanced ones with lots of moving tiles and options available to the player going forward

I like the idea, but my laptop cannot press both  mouse buttons at the same time

Developer

Yeah , I'm not happy with the double click,  and I think the properly solution is to do like a gesture based click and drag (the end goal is mobile anyway, with no MB clicks at all hah) thanks for the feedback!

This game looks really good and has some interesting puzzle mechanics.  More variety in the levels and some sound/visual  feedback would have been nice.

I really like this idea.  with more polish and feedback for the player, this could be a really interesting puzzle/tower defense hybrid.

Very cute! Would love to see a more polished version. Like others said, some feedback on if you're actually hitting the bugs would have been nice.

Nice overall idea, but not sure what about it is only one?

Developer

The concept started as sort of "A tower defense where you have only one tower" but kind of evolved and changed a bit- the "tower" as it were ended up being just just a spout  endlessly pouring water

Nice physics based game) I wish I had more visual feedback on bugs' health left. On the first level water didn't split at the beginning, so couple of bugs on the right made it to the top. Good luck!

Developer

yeah the bugs are a big place where polish is still needed! I'm considering representing their health with the legs popping off as they take damage bug haven't gotten there yet.

As for the water not splitting on the first level, this is intentional, as I wanted as few moving parts/mechanics as possible to teach the player. actually I wanted to remove the bugs from level one entirely  and just require you get the water to the bottom, but didn't have time to code in extra victory conditions- so as long as you kill at least one bug you will have enough health the finish the first level. Thanks for playing! :)

This game seemed very interesting but unfortunately my browser could handle the Unity Webgl... Would have been better in executable :)

Developer

It is better as an executable, webgl also really butchers the look of the water! there is an executable available though :)

Oh I didn't see it! My bad!
