Thanks! Yeah, I dialed down the AI quite a bit... it was crushingly difficult before. I was going to build in difficulty settings but ran out of time. :-\
Your game is pretty great, lol. I was thinking pikmin a bit with mine as well.
Yeah I was on a big Pikmin binge lately and wanted to see how well I could create a game like Pikmin in the time limit! It was a ton of fun! And I think it was smart for you to go easier AI rather than too hard of an AI!
