With clever level design that forces you use the throw mechanics in a strategic way this will be a great game.
Loved the game's graphics and gameplay. Dashing around felt really smooth, which I think was accentuated by the smoothness of the player character's animations.
It's pretty unclear where you're supposed to go, and a lot of the jumps seem a bit too close for comfort, especially when the visuals seem to imply that you can't actually hit them. More than a few times I gave up on the only way through a section, thinking the demo must have been over. Running with the objects would be nice too. Thanks for sharing!
I like the dash mechanic. I noticed that you can spam dash against walls to essentially climb them, since touching a wall seems to give your dash back. Might be exploitable for speed runs but it's fun.
Would be great if you added controller support. Fingers didn't get used to the controls quickly enough to pull off cool tricks.
At some point in my life I thought 'shit why doesn't somebody make an entire game about the Suplex ability from Kirby Super Star', but lo and behold somebody beat me to the punch.
There's not much here now, but there's a good foundation for a puzzle platformer. an ability to toss things softly could add a lot to potential puzzles, and various non throwing options for grabbing on to stuff, like more manuvarability options and more grapple animations, would be nice.
The wall is definitely an issue, i'll be posting a fixed version in a moment. It IS possible to get over it, but it requires more knowledge of the control then you likely have after 10 seconds.
I pretty much agree with Mayo, but I'd also like to add that It'd be nice to be able to run while holding something.
Really like the graphics, but there's a ledge near the beginning that seems to be unreachable. Is there a way to jump over it or was that the end of the demo?
