The art and music are done really well! Took me a while to get into at first, but had a good time! Great work! :)

Music was fun and the art was cute.  It definitely seemed like a fun concept, but getting dropped in I basically just got trampled XD  It would have been nice to have any sort of reset or retry / "you died" / "game over" screen so I didn't have to restart the app each time.  The other herds seemed to instantly all pop into existence so fast that I barely even had time to get my herd to follow me away from the chaos ^_^;  (I also seemed to be able to leave the edge of the map just fine, unless that was water.)
Would be interested to see this mechanic in action if you do decide to work on it further!  Great job! ^_^  Thanks for the game.

Really needs a tutorial

We agree! We definitely ran short of time. There's a brief instructions in the description, though we hope to make a post-jam version that's a bit more fleshed out. Thanks for trying!

Love the concept, love the art, love the music. However, it's not easy to pick up and the opponents that spawn really quickly are much stronger than you.

Really nice clean art. The music is fun too. A little tough to get started, but fun.

The art for this game is really nice for this game! Animation and Music included. I think the mechanics of the game could be explained further, I found it difficult how to play.
