what does pepsin do

Hey! It is a bomb! But it does not trigger on the infection (due to a bug). Mobs can trigger it.

ok thank you

cant make pepsin

i think it only works if you put enzyme in the middle. ( the yellow block).

This looks fun - are there any plans to release the full version on itch?  Steam's not going to be an option for me.

gaahhhh can't beat this one level so frustrating I think you need some key macros with some massive abuse :'(


HOLY SHIT I BEAT IT AFTER 1 HOUR HOLY SHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTTTTTT


pro tip:

1) make probiotic block

2) collect 10 from inside

3) break the block (remove a blue square at the edge)

4) re-built the probiotic block

5) ... ???

6) profit


pro tip 2:

you can make any gun sumer haxxx if you add a wall to the tip of it. For instance, say you have the long range gun as follows:

BxB

xYx

BxB

(B = blue, Y=yellow, x = empty)

you can upgrade it as follows

BxB

xYx

BxB

xxxBB

xxxBB


just attach a wall, i.e.

BB

BB


to any corner of any gun they'll go bananas xD

Pretty cool, took me a minute to figure out how to actually build towers but from then on it was smooth sailing.  It's a bit slow for me, but I really like the concept

Thank you!

BTW, we've released the full version of this game (with much better graphics :)), you may find it in steam

A fun little concept, I can't wait till the full steam game release is available.

So it is released! You may find it here

Actually we are working on finishing the game, here is a example of new look. You may notice some new buildings to create, and there will be more of them.

Stay tuned!

Great job on this game! It took me to realize it was sort of like a tower defense game xD

I especially enjoy the pixel graphics.
