    Nice, the graphics were cool and it was great fun. The levels changed a bit abruptly, but that set me on the edge I guess. :P

    This game has a lot of charm. It is so cute... and so deadly! I couldn't beat any of the stages past 8. Very nice idea to allow us to jump to any stage. Also quite polished.

    Thanks for the game!

    Nice use of theme, and funny last level. :)

    Some peeves with the game window being so tiny. Would have liked an option to scale it up (3x pixels or so). Also when I lost I kept accidentally clicking on the level selector and ending up at a random level rather than retrying the one I was playing. I suppose a level indicator would have been nice, too.

    I'm wondering a bit what I actually am in the game, though? Loch ness monster, dinosaur or something?

    Thanks for your comments. The game character was thought as the loch ness monster :)

    The last level was actually developed in the last 2 hours available. Level indicators where planned, but run out of time...

    Don't forget to use letter F for fullscreen!

    The difficulty seemed to increase far too quickly, also, I didn't understand what to do until I came back and re-read your instructions. I thought I would be able to right click on the balls or ducks to move them around, when in actuality you right click when your character is near them to pick them up and use them as a shield. I couldn't get past the 4th stage... Why is this game set in a bathtub and what are the characters? It doesn't make sense to me.

    Cool game. Difficulty is pretty high but worth the fight.

    Fun and funny! The graphics are the high point. The gameplay is simple and mostly consists of circle-strafing, but in the last few levels you have to have a good plan and do some bullet hell stuff to survive, and the very last level is a great surprise. :)

    Nice :) The graphics are cute and I quite like your use of the theme. Gets hard to dodge all the bullets!

    I've never seen an arena shooter in a bathtub before.

    Apr 29, 2012 @ 7:15pm

    Well done and cute!

    Cute and original setting!!! This could become even nicer with more enemies and some power ups! :)

    Quite an original way to interpret the theme. Well done! :-D

    Really cute game! I loved the style, and the small window size fitting in with the "tiny world" theme, love it. Great job!

    This was cute! A few perspective issues with the graphics but I liked them nonetheless. It was short and sweet. Nice one :)

    Very fun and beautiful. Could be a little easier because at some points it's prerry much impossible to avoid enemy fire.

    The last level was funny, but I couldn't get there normally =/

    My score: 4846

    Very cute, but quite hard, too! The last stage is specially unfair - not one second in and you're already getting a beating!! But it's the kind of "hard" that fuels the fire; I never stopped until I crushed that little sucker! I just wish you'd have included a "bite ear out" button for the ocasion! :)

    Very fun and great use of the theme!!

    Like the splash screen as the program starts up. Sound effects were fun, graphics looked nice and all fit together well.

    I would try it if you had a Web or OSX version.

    May 12, 2012 @ 5:27pm

    love the graphics.. goodjob :)

    This was adorable, and I love any game that allows me to shoot a disembodied knee. Wish bullets would have some visual impact, would have made it more fun to shoot, but I also like the dinky feelings that resulted from the pea-shooter sounds.

    Nice shooter with tight controls.

    I found very annoying be able to move in just one direction but hey! this is a very cool game! Very simple but fun :)

    Fun game, truly a bullet hell. Great graphics. Couldn't beat levels 9 and 10.

    Very fun and challenging! Great theme idea!

    a solid entry. way too hard. very cute though. wish there was more strategy. last level was funny. thanks for letting us choose any level instead of forcing us to play through them all :) I wouldn't have seen the last part otherwise!
