Theme

Snake and tower defense - two great genres!

Interesting idea, I haven't seen snake being combined with tower defense

good job

Very interesting combination

Snake + tower defence. Snake isn't a genre?

A pretty clear combination

Both genres and mechanics meshed really well.

Enjoyment

At the beginning you can just go afk.

Although it doesn't give you much of variation and is fairly easy to finish (and you don't get to control shooting), it reduces to "nice" rating.

The game has the basic mechanics, but doesn't require much involvement (I went to the restroom and when I came back I was still alive). Perhaps you should do some balancing or tweaking of existing mechanics

Kinda boring

It was pretty boring to be honest. I could leave my snake on the bottom row and win automatically if I collect a few powerups.

Looks like an early iteration of a game that will get much more interesting soon. A lot of potential, but not much of it realised yet. A mechanic for growing the snake longer would be nice, in the unlikely case that's not already planned :)

The gameplay wasn't interesting enough, however with bit of tweaking this could be really enjoyable.

Aesthetics

Looks really good. I like it!

It's ok, could use a little tweaking

the background is cool

Well+done design

No story. Art is okayish. Audio sounded distorted with the shooting effect. Music is has a good start but could've gone further.

The visuals and sounds were a bit rough

art is nice

Innovation

Unseen stuff - really like the idea and I hope to see it advance further!

Usually when people combine two existing old-school games, they make something unplayable, but this game has potential I think, but it still needs some improvement

Novel? Not much, but I haven't seen a combination of snake + TD before, probably because I don't play that many flash games.

Mechanics played very well together.

Bonus

just awesome

Still needs improvement, but it could be a very good game that could work well on many platforms

powerups didnt get picked

They have an online scoreboard, which is cool, but you have to play twice to see your first score.

Doesn't work on linux :( :(
