    Really, really cool idea for a strategy game! I personally really liked the artstyle (when I was a beginner I also made such sprites). You could definately expand on this.

    Definitely a cool bunch of mechanics, it's very easy to grasp! I'd work a bit on the color palette of your game, but other than that it's really neat!~

    I really liked it. Great music, and cool mechanic. I'd like to play of it, but it could use a bit of balancing. The weapons were interesting and once you understood how the game worked, I started having fun. The sprites were cute, and Halloween themed which I can always appreciate. If you end up expanding the game that'd be sweet.

    A really cool again from you, once again more people should be playing your submissions, The last 2 seem to have really hidden depth.

    I love games like this because they make you think a few moves a head, you HAVE to pick up an item to advance your score and yes it can give you a power up but pick wrong and you could be punished later on. Very clever and I really like it!

    It took me a little bit to fully understand what was going on, I guess this could have been changed to make it more obvious or have a very quick non text tutorial.

    Music matched the chill style of grid games, and it had nice sound effects also.

    I ADORE black cats so a huge thumbs up from me just for this alone, I like the play on words "familiar rhythm" which made me think it was going to be a cat rhythm game at first.

    Can't wait to see your next submissions, could you please link me to some of your work, itch.io?

    Interesting concept. I was a confused about how the game worked at first, but I figured it out after flailing through my first playthrough. On my third playthrough, I think I found the winning formula: load up with weapons, have a couple of heals, and leave one square for movement. It makes you really slow, but means you can dispatch or tank anything that comes your way.

    This is a cool idea! Nice to see a turn-based strat game.

    Very fun and unique game!

    What I liked: -The unique concept. I never played anything like this! -The tune is catchy -addictive gameplay, once you get the hang of it

    What I'd like to see improved: -The graphics a tad too pretty simple, but they get the job done -The gameplay took me a few moments to figure out what I'm even doing, but I guess that's normal for such unique mechanics

    Overall very fun, makes you feel like a tactics genius if you time everything right!

    It's a... different game but still had a lot of fun with it, took me a little bit to understand what was going on and to figure out what did what but once i understood, i had fun, good job ^-^
