Under rating threshold (show) A fun game, but terribly balanced. I found the optimal team to be 3 ninjas, and one cat to drive them into shuriken overdrive. All the rest of the classes are virtually worthless. The reason being that even with a high speed stat, and the speed upgrade maxed out, your rate of vertical movement is still WAY too slow. It makes all the straight-line firing classes, completely worthless. you just cannot manouevre fast enough to get in line with enemies to hit them, and then dodge their projectiles. Ninjas can do it all. they don't have to be directly opposite an enemy to hit them. And their special gives damage in all directions, which is essential for combatting enemies from behind, and the final boss.

Under rating threshold (show) Great game you got here! Love the pixel art style. The houses remind me of Paperboy. ONE thing is irking me though... I wish you had a bit better description of each character's projectile. For example, the Ninjas throw three stars but the only way to know if when you play with them. Also, something showing the order of character unlocks would be nice! Great work! (PS, Want a pretty kick ass starter group? Try all ninjas, maybe a fairy for healing)

Under rating threshold (show) For the hard badge, a robot, two ninjas and a cat work fine in a fully ranked party. The cat turns the ninjas into machine guns. Thanks to the robot, you will get enough candy (usually more than 30k) by level 18, when multiple bosses make it hard to survive.

Under rating threshold (show) Whoever it was who suggested 2 ninjas + 2 cats, brilliant. Easiest hard badge, seriously! Major machine gun special for the entirety of the run, got 30k by wave 17. Try to dump everything into candy drop first and it should go pretty easily.

Under rating threshold (show) @ LazyPeanut: You could still use Cat, Witch, Ninja and Pirate. That has about the same effect as NanakoMs team with one cat and 3 ninjas. Actually i found that pirates are a nice addition to ninjas, because they fill the holes in the shooting pattern of the ninjas.

Under rating threshold (show) I don't like the fact that the upgrades reset in story mode for each run. For survival I understand this but I feel that story mode should be more casual gameplay then having to grind it out for the minimal upgrades we get from ranking up.

Under rating threshold (show) Contrary to popular belief, all ninjas is not the best team. Pirate Ninjas are the way to go! Pirates and back and ninjas in front gives a much better spread than all ninjas.

Under rating threshold (show) The rank bonus caps out at +90. I think I got the Survival badge at level 17 when I only had +75 bonus. Just unlock Cat (one of the first low rank new classes you get) and then do Ninja x3 and Cat x1 (x2 also works, it's just a bit more upgrade-dependent). Focus on literally killing everything on the screen (staying as far back/left as possible helps a *lot*). As long as you don't fall behind, the Guns-Aliens will never be a problem, since they'll always die before they get a 2nd (or 1st!) shot off! Goodluck!

Under rating threshold (show) The hard badge is EXTREMELY difficult, at least for me, maybe I don't know some trick. But it's a great game overall, the story mode was a lot of fun, bit lopsided towards ninjas, I think it's literally impossible to beat the game on any mode without ninjas. 4/5 though! Good job, hope there's a sequel.

Under rating threshold (show) There is a bug about bullets. Or rather a feature. Bullets have limited lifetime of several seconds... and this lifetime continues to tick even under pause. So, if you found yourself before barrage of bullets, click to pause, wait 10 seconds, unpause game - and bullets will disappear. I didn't want to share this bug, but using it i managed to pass wave 18 - and found nothing! My team just keep going on clean empty road infinitely. Obviously, developer though to kill any player on the end of 18 wave and didn't bother to make wave #19 etc. This isn't good, if you want to cut survival (in most games it is infinite), make some trigger after seemingly impossible obstacle. May be there are some geeks, who can overcome that obstacle in any way... and fall into vacuum :( this is kinda disappointing + so developer could see it and improve this game

Under rating threshold (show) To get 30.000 points, I used 2 ninjas, a fairy, and a cat. Wave 18 was almost the end for me, but I used my special JUST ENOUGH to get 30010 points before the screen faded completely to black. Good luck if this helps you.

Under rating threshold (show) I do like the pixel art, but the concept and balance needed some work on it. Like, instead of an upgrade after you lose, it goes up and upgrades actively. There was potential for a class tree, like if there was leveling for each type of trick-or-treater, and you level up ninja and warrior to a point, you can use samurai. i.e. Fairy & Witch = Sorceress. i.e. Robot & Pirate = Space Bounty Hunter. The class would possess both abilities, but both work at half the power. I do like it very much for a Halloween game though. Thank you~

Under rating threshold (show) Double ninja Double Cat is too good it simple beats everything else. Which has a lot to do with the fact that health and special are inferior to attack and speed in even quantities. Having these stats high lets you collect more candy and spec purely into candy. The combination allows massive wave clearing with its special and since the duration of frenzy is so long later in the game it has 90% or so uptime

Under rating threshold (show) game has surprising depth. Two complaints No apparent key bind for pause and the big one -> you cannot get rank/party upgrades except after death. This turns what should be a skill based game into a grind; quickly sucking the fun out of it.

Please make a part 2 with more chars, more levels, more perma upgrades, and more general upgrades like damage/defense/crit/critdmg/hp regen/dodge. Enjoyed the game hope you keep on building on it, 4/5

Under rating threshold (show) If you could have the back two flip around but half the speed of the part as a whole. Might make the boss much easier, but perhaps pay candy to swap characters midgame, or perhaps different upgrade paths for each child? Not being hit and killing all the enemies should either give bonus candy or parhaps unlock extra classes? Not terrible, but it wasnt wuite there, it started to get boring after the first few deaths =/. 3/5

Under rating threshold (show) For anyone wondering like I was, the level cap ends at "Hero" with +90 to all stats. I suggest playing normal mode until you cap out, and then move to survival, it will make things a lot less frustrating. I went with arielaquino's suggestion of ninjas x2, robot x1, cat x1. Put two ninjas diagonal from each other and fill in the empty spots with the cat and robot (it makes for a better spread) Spam spacebar nonstop. Put all into Candy stat with the exception of putting 1 into magnet every couple levels (to accommodate for increased need of dodging). Next max out attack>health>speed>special. Using this strategy I got 30k by the end of level 16.

Under rating threshold (show) Wave 18 is indeed brutal... I began suspecting what would be there after reading all the comments saying how bad it is, and all I will say is: indeed, they're in the level :-) You can still get points on wave 18 though, and get 30k+ by the end of wave 17 -- just max candy ASAP. As for my build, it was 2ninja/pirate/cat. I find the pirate's firing pattern is complementary to the ninjas, and the broadside attack is pretty handy as well. And frenzy is an OP support ability if I ever saw one.

Under rating threshold (show) Damn! I died in survival with 29567 points! By the way that wawe 18 is totally unfair! Sending in 6(!) alien sub bosses (thos purple guys riding a green big guy) right at the beginning while the regular walls of aliens constantly keep coming (and faster than ever before!) and it's hard enough to take those out alone, not to mention that becouse of them you can't even get in line with the bosses to shoot them nor dodge their shots! Even the survival levels should be at least theoretically possible, but this one is totally imopssible. Why do you have 50 waves when you kill the heroes on the 18th?
