I have been all over the day spreading the word, and got some of my friends non-tech playing at this awsome games.
I know it might be strange, but they had several difficulties for understanding that the code on the right was the actions the soldier was going to do. Also, they weren’t capable of looking at the big red arrow till I pointed them.
Taking this into account, would it be possible to extend a little the first steps (I know they are quite verbose at programmer eyes) a little more explained? Also, correcting notifications, a little more visible.
The other thing, the red arrow thing, I thought about darkening the screen each time the arrow appeared.
Hope this helps in something,
