Neat game! I included it in my Open Jam 2018 compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Congratulations you earned 5 Open Source Karma Stars!


At first I was confused because my screen was too small to see the turrets. But then the game started to make sense, and it even has upgrades after the waves, that’s cool! Very hard to play with a trackpoint, and the collisions are a bit weird, but I really like the idea.

What key do we use to shoot? (would a mousepad + keyboard work?)

OHHHH I figured it out! I zoomed out of the screen and saw the commands that were at the bottom with keyboard controls.

The powerup options are great! Made me think strategically for what hand position would work best for button mashing.

Cool idea, but the controls did not feel great, also the hitboxes feel a little strange sometimes. Good game overall.

Cool idea, i liekd it a lot. Its just something that bother me: how the mouse control works, all the cannons go to the position og the mouse and explode, and thats really annoying and not fun. What i want my bullet to do it to go to the direction of my mouse and continue until it hits something and explodes. Not just go to the position of the mouese to explode. 

Also the music doesnt loop and when you die the money stays the same...those can be fixed really fast.

Nice! Loved the tower defense + space invaders + spammy keyboard. My fingers hurt of playing this. Good job!

Perfect fit for the theme, but for me it gets too fast to hard. Maybe I'm just too bad at the game. Hitzones felt a bit weird, often I thought I should have hit an enemy but didn't - or the white ones have some kind of defense ability? Somehow they gave me a really hard time but I couldn't really pinpoint why.

Aliens change colour as take damage. White means they have 15+ hp. (White aliens also line up in nice vertical rows for easy beaming :) )
