Very cool game, but the corruption is too much sometimes, it multiply and make some level uwinable

Thanks for playing!

Yeah sorry about that, the corruption is an experiment where I used the rules of the game of life to make it’s behavior. One could exploit that by looking into patterns that “live” and reproduce, but it also means that when ennemies randomly spread corruption, sometime they can make reproducing patterns.

It’s too late to fix now but I’ll try to see if there is a cheat for handling these cases I left in there.

BTW I’m surprised you think a level is unwinable, could you clarify if it was because it’s laggy when there is a lot of corruption or just because it spread everywhere and made moving around without dying impossible?

It's both laggy, and the corruption encompass the whole map after too many cycles

Noted, I’ll see if I can do something

“I love the PowerGlove, it’s so bad!”

The game is finally complete! Feel free to share what you think here :)


nice :D  I love the music and even if I don't understand all the things I just laugh reading this  " Goto - considered taboo by most programmers " XD 


There is an update incoming, that should be followed by the final version.


BTW The music was made by Roc Lee, not me (just to clarify)


Great work @Klaim! You've put in a ton of time and it really shows. Excellent project :) 

Thank you!
The other levels are coming, their content is already in but we lacked time to complete their generation. You will be able to see more soon ^^


Really like how the art style , music /fx and gameplay have all come together around the theme!

Thank you! Hopefully you will be able to see even more content when I'll activate the other levels ^^
