Beat death without cheating xP
Anyway, good game concept, its alright.

i loved the concept

I like this

It's a really good cheating invention but may sometimes look a bit stupid
I accused death of cheating and I succeeded, but after that death cheated twice in a row, I don't know if this is supposed to, though.
That's really the only thing I can complain about.
I like the challenge, the way you're tempted to cheat and how you must react quickly to let go.
By the way, for everyone who is playing, don't accuse death of cheating WHILE he's cheating, do it after, even if he's in his neutral face(you can do it a little before that) you still have a second to react.

All in all, great visuals on death, nice original content(except of the battleships of course but that doesn't matter too much) and challenging gameplay.

Keep up the good work! ^_^

Great twist

I really enjoyed this game. I think the music suited the mood. The sound effects were engaging, and the visuals added a great degree of gravitas. I think that the cheating aspect is genius. Death's head is easy to read, and the eyes are a great indicator. I lost a fair few times before I got to grips with accusing and cheating, but at no point did I feel disheartened by my mistakes. I personally like that it is incredibly difficult to beat Death. I think the difficulty reflects the subject matter, and thereby engaging the player. I understand how people would find this game discouraging, perhaps a level system could help players accustom themselves to the format? Maybe you could start cheating against an oblivious opponent working your way up to Death himself. My only concern there is that what I liked the most about your game was the forboding sense of unease that you created. In any case it's a brilliant concept with nearly impeccable execution.

Death's head is a little loose...

I think the only improvement I can suggest to make is you should slow down Death's head. He moves his head far too quickly from when he's cheating to neutral position, as well as from neutral to checking if you're cheating.
