I recorded a few playthroughs. Thanks!

This time I played four times and won all of them:)

Between, I would be really curious to ask you a couple of extra questions. If that's ok, please message me:

A bit more about levels:

  • 8: one extra bomb remains
  • 10: this time solved it with one zombie and one bomb (without spike)

I already said while playing it on stream that destination highlighting is very weak, but ... as it turns out same ships always go to the same destinations - once I realized that, my scores drastically improved:

  • Peaceful: 106
  • Frontline: 49, 102

I lost some lives due to ships colliding outside of screen, making it impossible to do anything about it

Thanks!

I was planning to record sometime later. I can't do it immediately, but I'll try to record within a couple of days and I'll let you know as soon as I am done.

Congrats for making it to some other site:)

Did you sell the game or do you get ad-revenue-share?

Can you please give me access to the game? :)

Can you please mark your game as "Windows executable" to make it playable through Itch app?

Second playthrough - 7 minutes 52.5 seconds

Why? It's quite nice

I wanted to replay it for one of my videos

Did you delete the game?

How to reset Windows game save?

It's limitation of most casual keyboards. They can't handle many keypresses at the sime time. If you are curious, you can read more here: https://blog.controlspace.org/2010/08/n-key-rollover-what-it-is-and-how-to.html

Can you please mark your game as "Windows executable" so it's installable through Itch?

Played the game as promised, even though quite late.

The main problem with it, as I think, is that it seems more like gambling than a game. Maybe there is some strategy/thinking behind getting high scores, but it feels that it's too random for that. I would in any case be curious to see videos of how people got their top results. I almost got to top-10 (2300+something) by accident (as with any of my good playthroughs).

The best strategy seems to just place 20 balls of each color at the same point and hope for the best. There was some time when I generated some huge amount of green balls (my computer really lagged) with this strategy. It felt unsatisfying for that to not count in any way. I think having total number of balls (instead of number of red-ones) as a score would be nicer.

Alternatively, I think you may remove time limit and stop the game when all balls are of the same color (or their number reaches some maximum capacity). My final play, when I scored 2300+something, balls were not done eating each other and reds were positioned very well, and once again, it was unsatisfying for the game to stop at such a spot in my best attempt.

I completed the game first try with the "average joe", but the game is so tedious: you just run around in circles, do some dashes and shoot.

The room before the boss (20% health left) and the boss room (10-15% health left) were two places where I almost died, but somehow managed to stay alive and win.

Rare jam game with decent difficulty: not too easy, not too hard

Attempt #1 and #2: 3 minutes

Attempts #3 and #4 - bad ones

Attempt #5 - as on the screenshot

My core message is mostly not about difficulty. It's about the game being hard for a wrong reason: it is hard not because of multitasking, but because of control limitations

Hey! Sorry for my late response as well. That was my last stream and I haven't checked Itch for quite some time after that

3rd attempts: 2 bosses defeated, score=302

Played your game

It's very similar idea to https://thenerdpoint60.itch.io/space-traffic-control, but I think that execution is better (you can draw complex routes).

In your game I ended up dying both times because yellow and red ships (which I can't control) collided (6 and 3 days without accident). If you introduce uncontrollable ships, make it so the trajectories they choose don't collide with each other.

Thanks for checking out!

Glad you liked it:)

That's ok. See you there:)

I might actually be still streaming at that time (the previous stream lasted 9.5 hours 😅), so check the stream when you are free - it might still be live.

Otherwise, I made a note to play your game anyway at the end.

Nice! I made a note to wait for you. And no rush: the stream will likely be a couple of hours minimum and the game-queue in the beginning is typically a bit longer, so even joining a few hours later is totally fine. See you there:)

Just in case: stream will likely last at least 4-5 hours (the previous one was 9.5 hours!), so keep that in mind - you might be able to join closer to the end:)

Otherwise, if you are busy this week, I'll just mark to play your game after I am done with joined-the-stream game queue.

I will start streaming slightly earlier: 14:50 UTC - join around this time and I will begin with your game so I can be done with by 15:30. See you there:)

Hi! I am playing and streaming top-ranked games today/tomorrow (starting September 14th at 15:00 UTC and likely for 4-5 hours minimum): https://itch.io/jam/brackeys-6/topic/1644084/streaming-top-fun-ranked-games-on-s...

I initially planned to play top-50 games in "fun" category, but since there is such a big overlap between "fun" and "game design" top ranked games, I have enough time to fit all top-50 games in "game design" of devs who join the stream.Your game is #52 in game-design, but that's fine as well.

I'll eventually play your game anyway, but it will be nice to have you on stream:) If you plan to join the stream, please let me know here and I will wait for you to actually join before playing your game (then let me know when you join in the stream chat). If you can't make it to this stream, but still would like to see your game being played live - let me know as well and I'll postpone your game till the next stream.

Keep in mind though that I am typically quite honest and if you join the stream be prepared to hear what I actually think about the game, which might quite disagree with the rankings.
