    Great idea! Very nice graphics! It would be nice if there was some indication of when the gunmen were about to shoot. And maybe the player could be just a hair faster. Or maybe some upgrades could be implemented later to gain those abilities. The sound was really loud and scared me haha.

    Good job!

    Very interesting game. I included it in my GM48: Sacrifice compilation video series, if you’d like to take a look. :) https://youtu.be/WwCrESwX77E

    Hmm. Concept was a bit unsettling, as was the choice of sprites. Gameplay was very simplistic and not very varied. Could use a lot more work.

      Thank you for your feedback, this was our first jam so it took some time to setup and plan for the jam, we wanted to add action elements but it was already too late. Now we are prototyping on few action ideas to the same concept of human shield.

    Well this is a serious theme... That's something else than bunnies and cat D:

    Anyway, there's obviouly a lot to improve here like other have said, but the characters look really good !

    But the fact that you can only protect people by taking the bullets for them really made me feel bad

    Good idea, but you didn't really use it well.

    You've got nice art and ok sound effects, but the gameplay is quite basic and boring, there's no real end goal, and sometimes the level design allows for unavoidable damage.

    Add content to the game and tune the level design a little bit and you'll have a pretty nice entry.

    Interesting use of the theme. The concept is pretty good and it works well, but it could be a bit more fleshed out. For one thing I was never really worried about my own health as you take so many hits to die. It might be improved if you played up the aspect of keeping yourself alive a bit more. The visuals look pretty nice, though the audio could use some work. Some kind of music would help. My best score was 24.

      Thanks for your feedback, it helps us a lot. we are planning to improve upon the theme of the game by changing the game play and add more action elements into it. we will add music in the endgame.

    Like bucketbomb said, you've got the idea in place and it works. Now all you need is more variety and maybe a difficulty that slowly ramps up as the game goes on? And some music :p Also I found the player to be quite slow. Otherwise, I have no complaints.

    Solid enough, but needs more variety. Forgot to mention the art, which is pretty nice! Good job!

    The art of this game is very good, but the sounds and gameplay could be better. You can try put some music that conveys the ambience of danger to your game and make more power-ups to upgrade temporarily the main characters, help the civilians or hinder the shooters by some way.

    But the idea is really neat, so good job!

    @bucketbomb Thank you for your feedback. Yes we have planned to improve the game play. This is the idea which evolve into much more immersive gameplay. We will definitely take your suggestions into account.

    The main idea is in place and stable, and I'd recommend something so the game changes more. More shooters, different types of shooters, different types of people to save, or power-ups could help the game stay fresh as you continue play. Right now, it's fun at first, but gets stale pretty quickly.
