Ranked from 2 ratings. Score is adjusted from raw score by the median number of ratings per game in the jam.

Which song(s) did you choose for the theme and how did you incorporate it/them?
All of them actually. They all made me envision a retro platformer where you play through a series of levels to get the end cut scene. I slowed them down a little as the game is not as high paced as the original song.

Which parts of the game did you create BEFORE the jam STARTED?
None

Which parts of the game did you NOT create?
The music.

Oh man, what a great game. The controls are really good to handle, the game feels really polished and the learning curve about the movement is really fast. 

Keep the good work.

this is the most potential game i've seen with 2 buttons, and really well polished! you did a lot in this game! congratulations!

and i love how story and mechanics complete each other!

Developer

Thanks, it was my first time trying to add in a story and luckily it fit really well.

Submitted

Developer

Somehow its weird that I can't hold jump down to jump higher, stuck on the main menu. The gameplay looks really neat though!

Developer

I have had one other person have that issue and I'm not sure what it is. They only had the issue with the browser version, and were able to play with the download. Let me know if you have the same issue with a download. Sorry about the issues. 

Submitted

Somehow the download version also has this issue. Not sure if its because of my keyboard?

Very polished simple game, my only complaint is the controls, when switching direction  rapidly controls start to get a bit confusing.

i think if another revision is possible maybe try making it so pressing the direction of the current direction the player would jump and pressing the opposite direction would switch current direction. Just an idea. 

Developer

Thank you. I'll think about the controls, that is an interesting idea.

Submitted

Developer

You are the caus im addicted to this game >:D

All i can say is Goood job

Developer

Thank you and I'm only sort of sorry for your addiction :)

I love how this turned out! I like that the autorun was given a narrative reason for some of the frustration it cause being the focus of the obstacles.

Developer

Thank you. This is the first time I really tried to get a full narrative into a game. Really happy you liked it.

Submitted

The level of polishing and attention to detail is impressive for a jam game.

Developer

Thanks. The mechanics came together pretty quickly for once so I had some time to focus on the feel. Glad it came across.

Submitted

Very much enjoyed your game. Really impressive, a complete experience with story levels and art. And just like GRG said, clever use of the two buttons.

PS: Robot's head looks like a heated toaster :))

Developer

Thank you. 

P.S. Now it's all I see LOL

Submitted

I love the clean looking design of the levels and the game art. The platforming is quite easy but very addictive. Smart use of the 2 button controls for a platformer. Overall, a fun game.

Developer

Thanks, glad id you liked it.

Submitted
