Please, kill the Virus. Update 2

The Virus is coming...

Hello everyone!

The development of Please, Kill the Virus is going very good! It is always hard, but I am happy that we are already leaving the prototype stage and moving deeper into the mechanics and features of the game :)

So far we tried three different mechanics for the game to see which one looks and feels better. It is always painful to prototype and feel you are not really making the game, but something you are going to throw away. The truth is that the player will thank you every simple iteration, as the quality of the game will be much higher.

We are also exploring the look and feel of the game. Here are some gifs :)

For some strange reason, this gif makes me hungry... xD

Classic troll virus trolling you.

Remember... Kill the Virus! :)

This are the mechanics. In all of them you try to match the colors to kill the virus:
  1. You can move the paddle and shoot, like in the first demo. But some indestructible defences are flying around.
  2. You cannot shoot, but instead repel back inside the virus that are trying to scape in an Arkanoid style.
  3. You can shot, but you cannot move the guns. Instead of one you have four of different colors.

Here is the demo! You can click the play button to check the latest prototype or choose one of the earlier with the buttons above. Hope you like it :)

What do you think of the new mechanics? What do you think of the style of the game? Is it too easy or too hard? Thank you, and see you again soon! :)
