So I endeavored to play this on my own and had a damn good time with it! For a jam title, this is fantastic! Absolutely loved the art style, the high contrast silhouettes on bright backgrounds, and the music! Some of the mechanics seemed a little finicky, like having to wrap up the bots to destroy them, but I think a lot of that could be attributed to trying to ply this by myself. Fantastic work!

Thanks ! The spider part is a little bit tricky,  we will probably adjust something like petrifying the spider when you touch her with the ridigified laser. The game was deliberately made ambiguous about the 1P-2P mode, but we designed the game to be finishable either alone or in coop. A second player makes it easier but it requires good communication between the two players :)
