Mark FassettThings I didn't like - gravity was too heavy (maybe would have been more fun without any g at all) and the ship too small. I think, with some tweaks, it could have been really fun.

ImpossibleInteresting, but very unfinished. It looked more promising when you were playing around with the verlet stuff but that seems to have been removed from the game.

GopherVery hard! :) (not nessicarily a bad thing)The time limit kept killing me even when I finally started shooting more bad nodes than good ones, heheheh Like it tho!

logicalhippopretty cool, a little hard though... ship is a little harder to control than I think it should be.

zogglesReally loved it except for the tiny ship (cant see which way it faces) and the controls. Very awkward to try and play - almost becomes frustrating.

randomnineThe spinning hurts my mind. I keep flying the ship round in circles chasing yellow dots, like a drunken joyrider in a parking lot. The graphics are nice - simple but very clean, and they work well.

flgrLooks interesting and fun and all, but this would have been way better if the gravity wasn't as extreme.

dumpleVery good. This is one of the entries I'm curious to see more of. I really like the graphics. The rotating grid looks nice and smooth. And the ship is cute (reminds me of the Shofixti from Starcon 2). It can be a little hard to tell which end of the ship is up (the 'head' is a similar color to the vapor-trail). I like the gameplay. There are all sorts of tweaks that could flesh it out (different map-shapes, or a level where shots temporarily-immunize instead of killing, or...) My main complaint is that it's HARD. Changing direction is a little slow (almost three seconds to go from free-fall to movement upwards), which makes it very hard to catch up with the virus.

EndurionGood idea with the slow infecting grid. The control of the player's ship makes it quite challenging. Took my some tries to beat the first level without killing too much good cells :)

LordCovenantAnother entry that's too hard... :( I couldn't even get past level 1... Take the gravity of the gameplay and I feel it's going to be great... Although it's a great effort for 3 hours!

tonicQuite nice idea, but I find it is too hard to play. The player character is maybe too small and controlling it should be a bit easier, or the playfield could rotate slower. There should be first some levels which would have less infected nodes at start.

adriczeroi had some difficulty with the controls, and spent a lot of time bottom feeding on the last line of the screen. however, the game has a very unique look to it that makes it interesting.

TwinnedArakMan, this game was HARD. The targets are spinning and there's some freaky action pulling my ship to the outer edges... I'd say you have to choose between one of these two mechanisms: either have the wacky gravity, or the spinning grid. With both of them happening it's just too tough. I liked the sparse graphics. I'm not sure the game could ever be made easy enough to play given the speed at which the infection spreads. Really the only times I had any success at all were when I fired randomly and ust got lucky enough to have half the grid left by the time the infection was gone.

NegatorNice ship movement, but the ship is definitely too small as I can't see where I am thrusting, maybe a big jetwash instead of a bigger ship... Couldn't finish even the first level but nice graphic style anyway.

ciw42Really good idea and well presented, it's just spoilt by having gravity and the ship turning much too quickly which makes the game awkward to play. Think I'd like to play a tidied up version of the game, adn will keep an eye out for it. Quite impressive for 3 hours work.
