Mark FassettThe gameplay was really slow - would have been much more fun if everything was just faster. I didn't like just sitting in one spot for two minutes blowing away a stack of viruses that piled up.

mrfunGauntlet with virii! I don't know if this was a time issue or I just suck but viri seemed to duplicate faster than I could kill (even at the start) and the only way I could pass levels was have them hit 512 and stop reproducing. So I didn't pass level 3, was taking too long. They seemed to congregate on one another into giant super globs that I just had to stand and shoot fo long periods of time. Technically very sound, nice weapons (mad I couldn't see the railgun) and great gameplay. and.. can slide against walls!! This is a nice tough that most 48 games forget.

randomnineTakes a fair while to kill stuff, and it can get a bit tedious with large infections - but still fun.

zogglesIf they didnt spawn so quickly topping out at 512 (when you have such a shlow shooting gun) and maybe if they moved a bit faster, it would be more fun. I got to level 4 though (couldnt get passed that) Just that it often feels a bit tedious when you are sat there shooting at a stack of the blobs. Otherwise, I loved it. - Z

tonicIt is quite hard to pass levels. I guess I'm running it on wrong FPS etc. then, looking at your notes in the description. With some extra work this could be fun.

dumpleThe level looks nice, very smooth on rotate. Sometimes it takes a long, long, long, long time to finish shooting all the viruses, though.

sinsolentI like how this game was basically a FPS with an overhead view, it made it easy to control and fun to play. Unfortunately, what made it not fun was the speed bug-- the whole thing seemed to run terribly slow. Nice graphics, though, and I like the splot sound when a virus dies.

TwinnedArakExcellent game. The different weapons are great. The splatter from dead viruses is very satisfying. Maybe the first couple of levels were too easy?

wisebedeIt looks nice at first glance with nice presentation. Unfortunately the game beyond that isn't very inspiring. The viruses don't put up much of a fight back, and even if you get a move one then once the viruses have got a foothold, wiping them out with the lower powered weapon is a chore. Even the sound is a muted whimper. It could be great with a bit more time and work. Just not enough challenge for now.

meethezeroThis game is hard! I tried running fillscreen, and it didn't seem to help the firing rate. I can't get past level 2. Also, sounds are repetative. Not bad, though.

GiddyThe game could use some balancing. Maybe it is due to the timing issues you mention. It would be cool if the ship would accelerate up and down when you press/release the keys.

EricDBWell, you know the bug, so I won't belabour *that* point. The graphics were very nice, the controls, and the rotating screen all worked very well. Could have been quite a bit of fun.

NegatorIn level 1 the number of bugs increased to 512 and stayed there, before that they were reproducing faster than I could fire, so I sat firing a a block of germs for a minute and then gave up. I could never get the bug count back below 512. My PC is a P4-2800 (win2k).

Krzysiek-KAwesome game! Maybe not highly innovative but really fun (although it could be improved - viruses tend to stick in the corners). Weapons are balanced (you are forced to use more than one), but it could be improved (some speed/damage, virus health changing and you would be forced to use three of them). Graphics are nice and sound is OK. Good job. :) (btw. I had to compile it myself, this AllegroGL release doesn't work on some cards but CVS version should work).
