Really original atmosphere and concept!
OMG!!! This is the closestthing I have play to my game!! XD We are like MECHANICAL BROTHERS!!!(or concept brothers but this way is not a joke)
I see that ammo and health are the same thing like in MY game! BUT I LOVE how you have used the obscure and grim concept of rattenkonig, rat king or rey de ratas. REALLY COOL theme!!!!
Gameplay-wise I am terrible aiming rats! Really well polished game! Good job!
Really interesting concept, the take on medieval German folklore is def. unique! I'll echo the other comments in that the controls, specifically aiming, need some tweaks. And the game could be a tad brighter, it felt very dark and the layout sometimes hard to read.
The game was fun but I found the controls to be a bit wonky when it came to aiming.
I liked the very unique mechanics. It was a bit hard to understand how to throw rats at first and then I discovered it's just a hard mechanic overall.
Very cool idea, though it's very hard to get a grasp on, controls-wise.
Also I like the visuals and I know, that it's intentionally dark, but it seemed too dark for me at times.
Nevertheless, good job :)
Really cool game, tough controls but really nice audio and visuals! Lags a bit in browser, but definitely better as a download.
Great concept and presentation. Controls are a bit of a damper on the experience - 8 way movement on one character but tank controls when aiming the projectiles is really tough to get the hang of. Maybe just eliminate controlling the projectile and have some light homing towards the nearest target. Enough such that there's still some skill required in aiming.
Really unique and interesting game! Mechanically swinging the rats is very difficult to control, but that's my only complaint - it's a very polished and fun game!
really loved the theming, i've always thought rat kings were pretty cool.
The controls were pretty brutal for how merciless the farmer pitchforks are. Maybe next time just have the rats go in the direction that the cursor is?
thanks for making this!
I get stuck at the WASD screen, pressing WASD doesn't make anything happen. I'm on Mac Catalina. It looks really interesting though!
We have not seen this issue yet, but we really appreciate this feedback.
which browser are you using? We have had no issues with Mac using chrome.
Latest version of Chrome!
idk if it helps but here's a video of the behavior https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ABNf3kWheoGTzEian2J1gpdiiphSUdWZ/view?usp=shari...
Thank you for taking the time to make this video. It’s very helpful. Sorry, you’re running into this!
Really fun. Takes some getting used to, but really satisfying once you figure it out.
The art is sick, the music and sound is fit really well, the gameplay is original. Best game I found so far, congrats!
thank you for the kind words!
Completely missed that you controlled the rats with the arrow keys, but when I got that it was fun to sling rats at enemies :)
The game is so strange and hard, but definitely it might be of interest. And by the way I broke the game on the second level. :D
Wow I really liked the gameplay. Was fun controlling my hoard of rats haha. I think the torches making the fire was a great touch!
Very good idea, fits a topic. But sometimes I have a bug, when peasant spawned at the begining on replay
This is very well put together, love the art style !
Incredible art and cool concept! I might just be bad, but aiming is kind of hard. Great game!
I really liked the art and the idea, congratulations. It was just really hard to hit the targets lol
Thanks for playing! We think that if you keep your distance and remember to steer the fired rat with the arrow keys, it's easier to hit your target.
