PopoSensei 1 6 4 1 4 1 1 2 3 I really like the graphics. Music is good too, but there aren't any sounds to actions. Story premise sounds great, but isn't touched enough. Controls don't really work and I just jumped over the enemies because I couldn't kill them.

That said, not much of a game here I'm afraid. The controls are a little wonky, the collisions are a bit off. Pretty confusing initially, even with the controls. I wish there was a bit more mechanical complexity than platforming and shooting. That said, good work for 48 hours, solid base of a game.
ThunderousEcho 1 7 7 1 1 1 1 1 1 To start the game, you have to press enter in the console window, which I figured out after about 5 minutes. From there, the gameplay is: Walk right. The music was good and so were the graphics.

    Error report: A console window shows up that says: Failed to load font "fonts/Aaargh.ttf" <failed to create the font face>

    Yes, but you have to press enter in the console window to get the game to start.

    That should be fine, but does the game work?

    Lovely graphics! I included it in my Bacon Game Jam 10 compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :)
