Killing the bugs with the knife is pretty fun but my main issue was that I didn't understand what the potions do. I feel like there were too many enemies but maybe the potions would have helped. I like the art overall.

PS: Please put the final version on the website, not just git. Some people might not realize it's not the same and play an incomplete game.

It seems project was not ready at time, so I played github version, as recommended.
Pluses: blood animation, throwing knife mechanic, swarm of enemies. I had some satisfaction while killing these bugs :-)

Couldn't figure out what the goal was, lost knife a couple times and had to reboot

After a while of throwing a knife at bugs, I didn't manage to figure out what to do next.

Pretty cool experience: I liked the idea of the knife i.e. throwing and having to retrieve, aim with the mouse, it was a fun mechanic. I didn't really understand the connection to the theme though.

It's not very interesting.

The gameplay didn't seem to work well, Once the knife was thrown it flew endlessly and I wasn't able to catch it again making it impossible to beat up all flies. Also no soundeffects or music. The sprites weren't that bad though.

Good graphics and scrolling.

Disqualify Fun 4 Prod 2 Inno 3


- The music is great. It's a shame that it's not Creative Commons licensed, or an OSI approved license, and violates rule 6.2 b.
- Pretty fun, albeit simple game.
- The fact that there is only one knife makes it quite challenging.
- I may need to read the source to figure out what I am supposed to do... how many enemies to kill, etc.
- Potions don't work, not sure whether they were simply not implemented.
