It has been suggested that this jam is too OP in terms of creative freedom.
I respectfully disagree.
The point of this jam is not to force an idea by telling you what you can/cannot or must/mustn't do, but to act more like a writing prompt -- to allow you to create something on a theme that you may not otherwise have pursued, using whatever tools you have available, and providing you with a deadline to come up with a prototype.
What do you think? Should there be some specific requirements for entries? I am open to suggestions.
I like your style. A hero made of firefighting foam is utterly fantastic and lent itself well to the theme. I also liked your graphics, animation and colour scheme.
Movement and shooting could use some tweaking. I died a few times because I didn't realize that ammo/health was so limited. It was hard to distinguish whether I had 3/4 hp and 1/2 hp. I had fun initially but got frustrated with the gameplay after a few levels.
I like the combination you have of top-down shooter and roguelike dungeoneering. I also like that you added a melee fighting ability as well as ranged, that saved my butt a few times. Only thing I found difficult was dealing with the view-field and aiming/fighting at the same time. Looking forward to see the next version!
Nice take on the Fishy / flOw style game. I liked that you could determine what was edible by colour. Easy to figure out. After a while it becomes too easy, but that's okay. Would be cool to compete against other galactic whales after you reach a certain size. Nice job!
