Interesting game, it's very cool that you have a multiplayer system, but unfortunately I had to play against bots which aren't very intelligent :( . The idea of both sides stacking commands for different robots then having them all play out simultaniously across different robots was neat and against human players I assume there could be a lot of complex strategy, but I often found myself running out of turns quicker than I expected and assigning commands to robots that I wasn't using because of the way that the interface works. I also thought the graphics could be made more simplistic to make it easier to see which robots were on which side. Overall though an impressive job for such a small amount of time.
I totally concur with Baconinvader; the game is pretty hard to "read", simple graphics and more interface would be benefical. The idea is good, and some of the aspects are cool (that you have three robots to control, for example). No idea what "insult" does, because I didn't feel the need to use it (also, just a small nitpick: Y is not next to T on a German keyboard; why not just using the keys 1 to 7 instead of QWERTYU?)
Somehow the order of the robots was random, or did I miss something?
Really cool looking game but the main game area textures were way too busy.
The game was alright, but making a multiplayer game in a jam is always kind of a weird decision. Mostly because it's really hard to make an interesting AI and people rating the games usually play alone :D
If I understood correctly, you had to press enter after giving all the commands, but I don't remember reading that anywhere…
But this game is impressive nevertheless. Well done!
