Under rating threshold (show) A pause shortcut on keyboard (P or ESC) and a pause when the game lost focus would be really great, I've lost a few games because of that. But anyway, I liked it, great concept ! 5/5

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) I definitely agree with NanakoM, it's a fun game, but the speed stat seems to have rather negligent upgrades, making straight shooters nearly useless without at least two ninjas at their side. By the way, I managed to beat the game with two ninjas in the back and two pirates at the front. 4/5

Under rating threshold (show) Apparently the easy badge only requires you to collect 500 candy total, not 500 in one game. As my total for my third attempt (4 Ninja team) was 618 candy, this seems overly generous.

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) 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) 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) 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) 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) 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.

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) 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) Hard badge: 3 ninjas and 1 knight. The knight's protection spell is invaluable and the ninjas spread! Make sure you rack up 30,000 points by the end of level 17 (Do this by upgrading 'candy' as early as possible, killing and collecting everything). You will NOT pass wave 18. You'll see what I mean when you get there.

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
