Ranked from 10 ratings. Score is adjusted from raw score by the median number of ratings per game in the jam.

If you have implemented the modifier, how have you done so?
The first level is IMPOSSIBLE to lose; the third level is impossibly stupid because you need to smash buttons like a madman. I also made the keys you need to press for the thrid level IMPOSSIBLY far away :D

Any additional information for voters?
If you love Aliens and love SBIG submissions, this one is for you!

Challenging game. I included it in my compilation video series of the ‘So Bad It’s Good’ Jam, if you’d like to take a look. :)

Funny game, Good Job.

Submitted

this is probably one of the most 'so-bad-its-good' games I've played this jam!


well done!

Submitted

I enjoyed the theme very much and the fact that each level was unique. 

I think a few more sound effects would have been nice throughout. 

The second level was pretty tough, but a fun challenge. 

Nice job!

Graphics:   - Clunky and funny!

Sound:  - Gets a Alien Vibe but a silly one! that really neat

Gameplay:   - Really basic but it encourage for the "Bad" things. 

Overall Bad:   - The Mechanic is really GOOD yet BAD I love it

Overall Good:   - It is playable smoothly. Not that good but it's part of the charm of this jam!

Modifier:    - Really great implementation here!  I'm familiar with the first alien movie and it delivers!

I've decided to try using a standard format for all my feedback this time around. Please excuse me if I come across as overly curt or miss something important about your game. I'm writing these all quite hastily as there are a lot of games in the jam this year!

What I liked

The graphics and sound are bad, but they work well together with the concept of the game.

The gameplay is annoying but surprisingly fun.

It's pretty short, but well paced. The jokes are made, we laugh, then move on before it gets too stale.

The references and how badly the story was butchered.

What I didn't like

I'm struggling to find something. I really liked this entry, to be honest. I guess... it's a 32-bit build in 2020?

Did I think it was so bad it was good?

Absolutely.

My thoughts on the modifier implementation

Plays with impossibility. The first level is impossible to lose, the second is difficult but not impossible, the last seems totally impossible until you realize the trick.

Other remarks

I'm reasonably familiar with Alien but I can see this being kinda baffling and a lot less funny to people who aren't.

Verdict

I really liked this entry and it is definitely so bad it's good.

If you have any questions, comments, queries or concerns, please reply and I'll do my best to get back to you.

Developer

Much appreciated that you took this much time for your comments. I do find it valuable when people write a lot of comments and think about the game and try to see what the developer also had in mind. 10/10 for your comment, will check your game in a bit :)

This was a very special game!!!

This is great, well done! I especially like how the acid burns through the hull while saying "you stopped the acid burning through the hull!"

Developer

Hey, thanks! Yes, to be honest I forgot about fixing that, and then after I submitted I thought to my self "meh, it fits" :)

Host

This is the first game I've tried from the jam, and already an extremely strong contender! Each part of the game seems to jell very well, and I like how there is a very clear direction the game has gone for. 

I think the use of MagicaVoxel really fits, and helps to make the art bad, but not *horribly* bad. Also I really appreciated the Devlog!

Gameplay was very simple, and the game is over all too soon, but considering it was done in 4 days, I think this is a really strong submission that deserves attention!

Developer

Hey, thank you for the kind words, much appreciated!
