Nice! The visual design is very charming and I like the self-balancing difficulty.

thanks! It started as a happy bug and it quickly reminded me of how space invader speeded up after you killed a couple of invaders 

Great character design and animation.

i m glad you like it, i was wondering if the animation was good enough

Love the combination of characters to make the gnomes, genius!

thanks it was the first thing done :) 

ditto, elegant use of characters!

Thanks :)

I love it for less than 560 word its really good

thanks. I hope it was fun to play. It's a 558 char count, though :)
