Watch Game Jam Feedback 2019-11-24 from MrJoshuaMcLean on www.twitch.tv


Fun game with phenomenal art, but the card choosing mechanic seems two-dimensional; it changes the order of the waves, but not how they interact, so the decision comes off as unimportant and gimmicky. That being said, the art made this a thoroughly enjoyable experience anyway.

Thank you for the feedback! We plan on improving the experience and mechanics for the next major update, so stay tuned!
