Challenging game! I included it in my Godot Community Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Interesting game.

It was hard to kill the ants and gave no penalties at all for keeping them alive, and found easier to just level the reactor emperature attacking it, may need some motivation to kill ants and to resist (a time based score, probably).

Really neat idea :)

Thanks!

That was cool, for a minute there I thought the reactor would explode all over the place if I lost.
It was harder to kill the ants? than I expected (even if using the opposite color)

Developer(+1)

Thanks, ants only receive opposite color (3 hits needed).  Initially wanted to make the reactor explode if overheat and become gray (stopping working) if it was below temperature.

It's a great ideia. But the gameplay feels kinda slow, and the player is too big for the size of the plataforms. for a jam game i cant complain about the art, it's self explanatory with the colors(although doenst make much sense machines, robots and ants), and the backgorund music its nice. Players can understand the game goal at the beggining of their first deaths with that huge termometer, it could have more feedback though, liked the ideia of warning you when the termometer is too high or too low.  but the way you play can be boring once you dont need to kill anybody and just ajust the temperature of your machine. Congrat's though! you submitted ^^

Developer

Thanks for the detailed feedback!, wish I had more time to tweak sizes and difficulty.

Interesting idea, I like the radioactive ants! I think it was a bit too easy to maintain the generator, I wish I could kill the ants, or pass though them, at some point they started pilling up.

Developer

Thanks! I adjusted the difficulty since in last game jam I received several complaints about it being too hard. Ants can be killed by shooting them 3 times with the opposite temperature.

Yeah it's very hard to get the balance right with such a small amount of time. I guess I did not notice I was killing them because there were so many hehe
