Funny how every comment is crying about the controls, I liked them :P

Developer

Thanks! Finally someone on my side.

Great game, was simple to play and quite fun too. The IJKL movement setup was out of the ordinary, but wasn't anything too weird. I enjoyed it, a good solid entry :)

Developer

Thanks! Yes, the game is very simple. I personally like IJKL but I might be the only one :)

Giving my right hand a workout with those controls :\

Simple game with good execution.

Probably the weirdist control setup I've seen this jam. but it actually added to the gameplay a bit for me as I had to cross my hands to shoot xD. I liked the similicity and overall gameplay, but it could use a short tutorial explaining what to do, as I had to figure that bit out on the fly. Other than that a solid entry. Well done!

Developer

Thanks for the feed-back and for playing my game! For me the controls are natural but I guess I'm just weird :)

Wow! I rarely see a game made purely in HTML and JS so I feel this is quite impressive in and of itself.

I like the detail on how the cells get converted into virus cells upon contact (I also hate it because that's when I usually lose)

Although it took me a while to realize that you lose the game if a virus cell reaches the bottom, so I was confused for some time wondering why I seemed to be losing randomly.

Thanks for making this game!

Developer

Happy to get some feed-back! It was perhaps unclear that all the viruses had to be shot down before reaching the bottom of the screen. BTW: A virus is not a cell :)

Props on not using Unity like the rest of us plebs. At first I hated the controls, but then I loved them once I started pulling off some sick moves. Not very satisfying when you hit a cell that wasn't even on the screen though.

Developer

Thanks for playing and testing my game! Sorry for any cells that shouldn't be there.
