run out of the box, click to position and space to throw was a bit strange...(keybindings)

Love the visuals! The controls are hard to get used to, and the game's over way too fast. But it's still a lot of fun!

Strange rhythm of gameplay. Sudden death didn't make it more fun.

Pretty fun. You got the difficulty just right, not too easy but not impossible either.

Remarkable art!<br>
I very dislike the controls.<br>
Could be much playable if movement in AD or Left-Right and aiming and atack in the mouse.

Couldnt find yaml for osx easily

Any good reason why you couldn't just use the mouse button instead of space for throw?

The art's style is kinda nice, but it's missing animation there. Perhaps you could try a different game style next time?

Really buggy, I got loads of NoneType related errors:

It was pretty fun, for a while at least. I didn't really like the click to move control, but otherwise it was pretty sweet. Could have used a little more polish, of course.

Death is too sudden and incoming projectiles are too hard to dodge. Would be better to use arrow keys for moving.

Gameplay isn't really fun, using the mouse for movement and aiming kind gets clumsy. I felt that an opportunity to do something clever with the presentation was kinda missed here. The graphics matched the popup book presentation but the way it was used for the game, I think the gameplay kinda let it down. Really love the look though.

The art is nice and looks good in 3D too. The game is not really captivating though. Simply exiting on game over is not nice and I could not manage to see what happends when time runs out, because of a randomly occurring exception. It may actually be a bug in pyglet, please report it if you decide it's in pyglet. The relevant part of the stacktrace is:

wish there was more. controls are hard, but make sense. great production.

Worked fine, but very boring. Controls also didn't seem to do what I wanted all the time. Art was great though.

Nice graphics, the game occasionally crashes, sadly.

Sadly, it was too short. But it looks nice.

Good graphics but no innovation at all :(
