I'm sad I didn't get the chance to play this sooner. This game is awesome! The pixel art is incredibly well done, all of it! The music fits extremely well! This game also fits the theme well too. It feels nice to play, the enemies and the way they work make total sense once you take the time to observe their reactions to being near you and everything. 

This game rewards patience and perseverance, but mostly patience. It really does feel like an old arcade cabinet game, or an old NES or SNES game. I'm really impressed by this!

The only thing I would say is that I wish there was some way to maybe get more lives? But the only way that would make sense is if there were more levels. If there WERE more levels, it would make total sense to hide 1 ups behind more of the doors though. The other thing is that I still got a game over message when I reached the end. I'm not sure if it's because I got a "bad ending" or if there isn't a good ending. It definitely didn't strike me as a good ending, at the very least, haha!

Either way, this is probably one of my favorite entries I've played in this jam. Seriously excellent job!

Also, kudos to making this in Pixel Game Maker MV! I've tried picking that engine up like 4 separate times, but I just can't figure it out. It's nice to see someone making a game with it though!


Thank you very much for the kind words!


Very nice, game. I like the retro art.


ty sir!


Great game, art style was clean and consistent. The gameplay was a little simple but is was challenging enough to be fun and fit the theme. 


Ty very much sir! :)


I love the animations, they're so clean! It's a simple game, but really good!


Ty sir!


We talked on discord, so I don't really have anything to say here. ;)


Wow!! really nice concept and artstyle! good joob!


Thank you very much!


I love my hypercomplex modern games, but y'know what I miss about the 8-bit era? 

I miss the innovation required to make a unique product within the technology constraints. 

Connection returns to that era. The graphics, sound, design, they all required innovation. The gameplay is excellent, I love luring the mega-roaches into more favorable positions.

Grats to Lost Relic on a top-notch throwback!


Thank you sir!
