good job for jam

Submitted

I loved visuals.Good job!

by the way you could play and rate my game?

Developer

Thanks! Sure thing ;)

Submitted

I really liked the game, but the beginning is always kind of slow. Once you get a bunch of power-ups the game gets really fun. Good job!

Developer

thanks! I agree, I would like it to get to the end faster but I didn't want to make it "too difficult" or to not give players enough time to learn the main mechanic.

Submitted

Really clever mechanistic, fit perfectly with the jam's theme, i enjoyed it a lot !

Easy To Understand And Overall A Very Fun Game :)

Submitted

Characters are super cute,  the design is very unique, the fighting system is very solid and tight, rolling and shooting  feels pretty good. 

There are still something I dont understand, for example, why sometimes the distance of rolling is very short,  and sometimes I cant shoot so I was hit(maybe reloading? but I cant reload if I roll to empty ground.)

When I was chasing by a lot of enemies, I hope I can just shoot nearby enemies,  currently I cant kite and too many enemies are real threats.

Developer

I'm glad you enjoyed it. 

The distance is short because you only roll the distance of the dice. If it says 1 on your head, you roll 1 square.

You reload by Rolling over enemies and you have 3 bullets. If you're out of bullets, you can't shoot until you roll over someone.

Making kiting difficult was part of the idea. I understand its frustrating but I didn't want this to just be another top down shorter, where you look like a dice. That wouldn't have been very creative in my opinion.

I hope you still enjoyed it and let me know if there are any ways i can describe the idea better! Thanks for playing

Once I figured out that rolling into enemies was the key, I got right into the game flow! I do think that having an enemy type which can attack you inbetween rolls is a bit contrary to the game's intentions, but otherwise this is a really underrated entry!

Submitted

Going from not understanding how anything works to blazing through hordes of enemies in a few attempts and a couple of minutes felt really good.

Easy to undertand, very fun, great game !

Very fun game!

Honestly, the only thing I wish this game had is a description of the powerups, everything else is perfect. The mechanics are simple and easy to get into but gameloop is just fire.
As a sidenote I really like that instead of putting player on a timer you went with a real time enemies to enforce movement, not only do they create tension, they also can be used for combos adding another layer of strategy. Great job!

Developer

Thanks man! I appreciate it. The feedback is super helpful too. After this Jam I might make a version with all these fixes.

I knew this was an instant hood classic! Congratulations for making it in the video!

Developer(+1)

Wow! You were right! Thanks for the support :)

great game! it feels really satisfying to chain kills and roll over enemies, and the time stop effect is well implemented. I do think the enemies that still move during the time stop should stop when you choose an upgrade (its not that big of a deal)

Developer

Agreed, I added that enemy last second to make it a bit more difficult and fast. Ideally they should stop on upgrade. I'm glad you liked it :)
