Update (August 3, 2017): I did a better tutorial for the game to avoid confusion. Hopefully, people would get the mechanics of the game. I also fixed a sound that screeches the audio, and added something at the menu that shows your rank when you submit a score.

Make a positive battery inject to a negative battery, then emit them with your power. The other battery may produce baby batteries afterwards. But they also need to be destroyed with a positive charge before the next intercourse.

Made for the Ludum Dare 39 (Compo, with the theme of "Running out of Power").

This game was interesting, but it was also confusing. There were no instructions, not even in the author comments. Still, it was at least an interesting game. It seems like I lost every time I pressed any button. Quite hard. The graphics were still nice.

There was just so little going on. It certainly looked nice. I guess I'm not into these Ludum Dare games. They just need to be more detailed. Well, I tried!

The game is actually really good. Innovative, challenging and addictive, but still simple. Graphics is fully enough. The sound however contains some really sharp noises. I had to turn it off.

I think that the game is a little bit to complicated. There are a bit to many things to keep track of. You need to mash the buttons to fill the batteries fast. This is no problem with my index fingers, especially on my right hand, but using the pinkies it gets very hard. You have to know where all the keys are. No problem for me, but it is a thing to keep track of. At first I failed a lot, and I thought it was due to pressing more than seven times, but it seems like sometimes you should press fewer times. The only way to notice this is to see how fast the bar is filling up. Doing all this at once makes a little bit to hard imho. I'd suggest to add an indication of how many times you should press.

You also need to add better instructions. It was thanks to Csucskos that I understood the game.

Yep, glad you noticed some really sharp noises because of Unity. I'll take note of that.
And I'm indeed thankful to Csucskos, he got the point of the game :D

Interesting idea, but a tutorial would be nice. It was frustrating to play and fail many times just to figure out the controls... But other than that this is a simple but fun game.
So the controls:
-Press the letter in the bottom right corner 7 times to pump all your energie to the next battery.
-Press Space to change the polarity of the battery you want to mate with.
-Press the letter in the bottom right corner while positive sides are facing eachother to kill the babies.
-Have fun, and don't think about what you are playing.

Thanks for explaining the controls better than how I explain. If I have the time just to update the game, your comment would be helpful :D
