I like the look of the graphics here. Very fun. And that's a great characterization for the player.

The controls worked fine... but I couldn't get past the quicksand trap. I tried riding those dogs... no luck. Or jumping over it... no luck. So I just got stuck. But I had great fun shooting everything. :smile:

You shot... the puppies? :(
I guess the basic idea wasn't very clear. You're supposed to try and shoot the aliens(whilst avoiding hitting the puppies)... if you do that, you'll get a good ending, if the puppies are all killed, then the aliens will win in the end and you get a different ending.

The bars on the top right and top left show how many puppies and aliens there are left.

The handicap basically killed us. I'm personally not used to trying to explain the player how to play without using text.

It's funny that it was orange08 who made the handicap in the first place. :tongue:

Those puppies are always in my way ><
Also I finished in my first try but I saw no ending D: just a game end ._.

edit: on second try I shot all puppies, and the screen gets covered in aliens :D

The puppies should of helped the guy out of the sand pit as the screen fades to white. Did that not happen?

I think it's a bit short. I know it's hard to make a game in 72 hours, but I'm sure you could do something a bit longer.

The actual 'game' part used to be twice as long, but it was shortened. I'll probably update the game to make it longer.
