Some nice mechanics using the connection to a body as a weapon and also being able to use other connections versus the enemy. There was a few bugs I ran into on the pause menu the buttons weren't working for quit and resume and a few rare times the enemy died for no reason no idea if it because he ran into a weird angle. But a nice top down game with interesting mechanics. If you want you can come review our game too for the jam https://itch.io/jam/gmtk-2021/rate/1081519.


Yea, dunno why, but the pause menu has that bug only on the second floor. Even bringing it as a NonDestroyableObject from the previous scene didn't work..

Thanks for the feedback, looking forward in trying your game
