Nice Game!

Nice collection of mini-games! Really brings nostalgia and feel of retro games. Music is on point too.
Though there are some annoying bugs almost in every level. I didn't complete the game because I didn't really understand how some of the levels work or if there's a goal. Some kind of simple tutorial on each level would be nice. The most confusing levels in my opinion are the ones with a spaceship. Controls are too smooth and it's very hard to move and rotate. Everything else is cool and with a bit of polishing this game would be perfect.

Enjoyed the evolution idea. Really liked to see how those graphics and gameplay shifted. Good work

This was a nice tribute to classic games! I liked it when the games changed their mechanics along the way! The Breakout Pong really messed with my coordination XD
And omg, the breakout segment's music feels so nostalgic to me! It was the song of my first jam, one year ago!
Congrats on your entry! ^^

Hey! Happy to hear we hit the right accord with you! :D

Changing the mechanics up, mixing and matching nostalgia along the way, was definitely what we wanted. I'm really glad we managed to do the idea some level of justice - and yeah, trust me, even after coding it and spending time to balance it, Reversed-Breakout-Pong still messed me up as well.

Thank you so much for the kind words, we appreciate it!

Very fun minigames and the idea with upgrading them with each level is also cool :)

Developer

I played the fixed version . i liked the mini games theme with a progress map to unlock the next. A very good submission. nice work!

Oh sweet, thanks for going the long way! We had a few issues by the end of the project, bugs, timing and whatnot, but we did enjoy the end result as well! On a side note: Glad to hear you enjoyed the map - I actually had fun programming it (:

Thank you for the input!

This game has lots of content in it. It has really big scope, and delivers onto it mostly! I really like the platforming with invisibility power minigame! :)

Developer

Thanks man! Although we had our hurdles we did try our bests in going wide with this one. Glad you enjoyed it!

I enjoyed the first of each idea, but liked them less as they went on, the minimalistic graphics of the beginning really appealed to me, but the rest of the art seemed haphazard and not that great.

Developer

We tried to make it feel as a progression, both in gameplay but also visual wise. I am also partial to minimalist graphics to tell you the truth, so I can relate to the preference. ^^"

Thank you for your input!

Nice idea, still I found the jump from the green part a little to floaty and never got past the toad. In the blue part the movement of the space ship was too slow. But overall it was a nice experience, I finished the red part which was nice. Also the curiosity feeling of how the next gameplay would be made me going. Good job! 

Developer(+1)

Could you describe why u couldn't pass the toad part? I know that the game miss some tutorials on each level... And the ship, the start speed was too slow or the max? Thank you that you liked and played the game, I'm posting an fixed update here ^^

Developer

We really were hedging a few bets on curiosity to pull the game forward. Thank you so much for trying our game out.  :D
