Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just $3 per month or $25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!
For the month of January we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 199 people to reach our January goal of 3,000 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in February!
Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!
The tutorial should absolutely not count towards your final score. If you don't immediately understand the spotlight mechanic, you can penalize yourself so severely that not even a perfect run can save you.
Beyond that, good game.
At first i was a bit confuse by the game. Got a grip of it tho
It's annoying killing like forty ants in the tutorial because I didn't know that a large light sacrifices ants and I didn't know if my score of negative seventy-nine was going to reset. It's annoying to know where a termite is and have to just sit there and stare at the headache-inducing dancing waiting for the light to get small enough that you aren't sacrificing points. It's annoying that no matter what, at the smallest light setting you still lose 8 ants every time. I cant tell you any more because I stopped playing there.
Edit: I don't want to be disrespectful about it, because I absolutely respect what you are doing and I encourage you to continue doing it. That was just kind of...a raw and unfiltered log of my emotional experience playing the game.
This was a pretty fun time killer puzzle game (my best score was: 79)
