I liked this, it brings to life the angst at the office!

Developer

hahaha that's why I created it!  To vent my frustrations!

Well put together and fun pac man type game. The sprite art and animations are great. I wish the full screen mode expanded the game window instead of adding black borders so we could make out more detail.

Yeah I hear you.  I struggled with that because I wanted the camera stationary and it to be a square to fit into my arcade (https://www.loubagel.com/arcade/).  My other game is 360x360 so at least gets larger full screen.  I'm considering making a 16:9 version for computer and for mobile, may be fun to create some more levels.

Nice job with the 2 bit graphic aesthetic! I also liked the little zoom-in when you finish a level or lose a life. It adds a nice touch.

Very high level of polish. Derivative of pac man but I liked the twist at the end of each level of reaching an ending objective (the coffee maker). Nice job!

Developer

Thank you! I've been trying to keep it very simple and focus on polish and bug-free!

Pretty impressing that that only two colors are used in the whole game. well done!

Developer

Thank you!  I started doing the 1 bit color scheme as an experiment, almost a joke, but it has grown on me a lot!

I love this! The premise is cool, the graphics are nice and the gameplay is pretty interesting as those guys running around sometimes start following you relentlessly! Keep it up!

Relentless is a good word, haha.  I tried several variations of the AI between completely random and this first attempt at the AI which is ultra-relentless, ha: https://www.loubagel.com/archives/misc/dave-export-0.3/
