Fun and interesting game. Unique, good idea, and seeing a bit of strategy sure is a neat point.
I had fun, well done !

Submitted

Cool creative concept, not many strategy games in the jam I've seen. Definitely could use more sound and really needs an explanation of what's going on in-game.

Intresting Idea, its unique. If it was for Sega, It would be nostalegy

This game is super fun man, I love the idea :D Had me playing for a long while, super cool game! Congratulations c: Also feel free to play my game! :O

Submitted

Really fun game! But I found it a little unfitting for the theme. Still had a blast playing it! Also, I felt it was a little repetitive at some point

Developer

Thank you!
Yeah, I've taken the theme as : a normal game with an intentional bug that makes the game more interesting. But I've seen most people take it literally as : a game about bugs. I might have misinterpreted the theme. :/ But there two bugs that changes the gameplay a lot :)
Yeah it's pretty repetitive at the end, I should take more time polishing a shorter more interesting game instead of trying to do a long one.

ah no you interpreted it correctly, nothing wrong with that. I just didnt find what that bug element is

Nice Game.

Please take some time to rate my game.

Really good. Love how you have to think ahead a bit. Spawning enemies is well thought out, same with how everything moves. Simple to understand, but difficult enough to make strategic choices. Really well designed overall.

One thing, I didn't really feel the unintentional bugs at all, however I think the game works just fine without them. Great job overall! One of my favorite games of the jam I've played so far.

It reminds me of the many tabletop sci-fi games I had as a kid... Thank you for making this and uploading. The sound could use some tweaking (was a bit too low IMO) but that's a small gripe. Great app!!! ^ ^

Thank you!
Yeah I wasn't sure about the sound volume...

Nice board game, original and fun to play

Fun little strategy game, I wasn’t expecting someone being able to balance a game like this. So, great job! I had a fun time playing it and it showed a ton of potential. Keep up the good work!

Meanwhile, if you would like to play my entry you can do so at https://bit.ly/glitchIn

Thank you very much. :)

I din't figure out first that I had to protect the thing in the middle, but oh what a gem! I love it! Such a small little strategy game!!!!! Is there more than 1 Level?

Developer

Thanks!
Yes there's a lack of visual signs everywhere in the game, I'll have to work better on that next time.
Non there's only one level. :)

Submitted

Nice tactics game, I enjoyed my time playing it. :)
Also the death song is a bop. I just wish there was more sound or atmosphere during the main game.

Developer

Thanks, glad you liked it!

You're right, its definitely lacking in visual effects and sounds during the main game. I'll try to save more time for that next time!

Submitted

Very nice! I beat the game lol. Not sure if I fully understand all the bugs but I like what I saw.

Submitted

Really cool game! I love the concept. Check out my game if you get the chance I mean you are  a Caterpillar with a handgun what's not to like!?!

Submitted

This game was really cool! And finding the bugs was fun!

Cool game! I really loved it! :D

Ye i loved this game too :D

I do not see how it is related to the theme, which is alright with me cause this game is fucking awesome! This is such a cool game. I was very very confused at first, so you definitely wanna think about adding a tutorial or some sort of easy to read UI telling me what my options are each turn.

Keep on developing this bruh, this is dope :D

Developer(+1)

Thanks!

You're right a tutorial and better UI would help. :)

Well you had idea but it wasn't related to theme (I read description after playing game). It wasn't really fun game and pls always make wsad because I prefer that and my arrow keys are broken. Give base more health

Developer(+2)

Hi!

Thanks for the feedback. Sorry you did not have fun. :/
Well I've put two bugs in a normal game, so it fits the theme for me. I think that if the bug is not a bit hidden, its not a bug anymore but a game mechanic. I guess we can have different point of views.

Thanks for the advice. :)

Submitted

I thought the game was great! and just cause you prefer wasd doesnt mean it should be that way, I also think that it not being towards the theme is fine if its this good!
