  • The whole aesthetic of this game is very charming. Character designs are funny and the music is great. However, the rhythm based combat is a mixed bag for me. For the life of me, I could not figure out when to do the first hit in the sequence (after “Go!”). I don’t know if there’s any way to make that that timing a little clearer. The enemies also seemed to have a lot of HP (me sucking at the combat probably didn’t help) and each battle went on for a long time. This will be a subjective experience for each player, but maybe consider ways to make it a little more user friendly. Regardless, it’s still a very polished game.

    Score: 57/80

Ach sorry, we lost your comment :D Thank you very much >.<

We have released a bug-fixed/improved version lately. We'll surely continue this game after the contest ;D

Really solid entry, I'm surprised that this one isn't getting the attention it deserves! The art is very cute, the writing feels lively and fun the whole way through, and I also appreciate the interesting take on the battle system! (though, I will say that after a certain point it starts to feel much too slow once you get the hang of it, but it's a short ride so I suppose it shouldn't be much of an issue?) 

In any case, along with two others this is another one of my favorites so I hope it does well in the judging!

Thank you for you support! It means a lot!
Yep, the game is not quite famous, right now. We are trying to show it around the best we can. This was a gameplay experiment, therefore solid feedbacks are very important to get what's wrong with the game!
The Battle System would have needed a bit of polishing to speed it up a bit. We are focusing on it for the next update.
Thank you for your time and kind words! ^ ^

I'm in love with the battle system and the art! I haven't finished playing the game yet, but I really enjoyed what I played so far!
