Nice game :)

Submitted

Awesome idea!  The sprite animations and sounds work together very nicely.  I found a little trouble climbing the rope reliably but not too much.  Well done, would love to see this game fleshed out more!

I'd appreciate if you could check my game out as well, cheers!

Submitted

Smooth gameplay& nice graphics. Rate my game also.

Cool co op game idea!  I went through it solo, but still interesting.  Fun controls and nice graphics too.  Great job submitting a cool game to the jam, hope you learned a lot!  Please check out mine if you haven't.

The game is harder then it seems. I like it's original idea though. 

Developer

Thanks and yes i agree with you. I mentioned it in a video i made about it saying that if i could polish 1 thing now it would have been the difficulty as it is very difficult even for me who coded it and play tested it a bunch.

Developer

Thank you. sorry for not responding for a while. been offline.

Submitted

Wow the game art is awesome, same for the audio.Respect!

Developer

Thank you.

I really like that game idea and concept. Really good graphics and music. The only thing (in my opinion) is that it's a bit too difficult (I don't get far with the medium difficulty, but it could also be up to me^^). But on the whole great game!

Developer

Thank you for your feedback, we'll balance the difficulty in our future games. and I can't believe that OllieScottie2002, (He done pretty much all the coding,) beat hard mode. I couldn't get up 5 blocks on that mode.

As a solo player seems alright, can't say anything about coop.

Developer

heheh, That's what I said in my mind when it comes to Co-op. but the mouse player is supposed to go against the player, placing blocks in his way.

Submitted

I only played alone, but the mouse player always won. I watched the tutorial video and realized that this is a really complex game. Congratulations on being able to finish in a week!
Great work!

Developer

Thank you, the procedural map generation was the hardest part... please thank OllieScottie2002 for that.

This is a nicely done game. I know it's supposed to be multiplayer but I actually had a lot of fun trying to play it myself by attempting to manage both the player controls and the mouse controls. Really fun to play. I would appreciate it if you also check out my game! :)

Developer(+1)

Wait... you literally tried to use both the mouse and keyboard!? wow, that's something I couldn't do even if I wanted. Thx for the feedback.

Awesome game idea I love multiplayer games! especially when you compete against each other

Developer

Yeah same, i love competition and wish i had had more time to balance the game a bit better as it is rather hard for the keyboard player

Submitted(+1)

Great idea and concept. The music and art is really nice! good job! I wish it had a pause button. And i also got stuck in the tutorial, i had to restart to play it :(

Developer(+1)

Don't worry man, I just made a tutorial video for the game. I'm uploading it now as I'm telling you this. just in case if you want to play it again.

Rated it :)

Developer(+1)

thank you.

Submitted

I think it's too hard for the keyboard player, the pickaxe comes out too slow.

Developer

thank you for telling me this. I noticed that after finding out, I have to time my jumps to pick what's over me.

Submitted(+1)

A two-player game!

Great idea!

But I played alone :(

And the mouse won every single time XD

And the music was crazy frog ? XD

I loved it.

Developer

Thank you. ya know, this game can also be played alone. And I'm actually gonna say that in my tutorial video.

I don't have a second person to test co-op games so it was difficult to get far but this is a concept that could be something really cool with some work. I didn't get very far.

Developer

To tell ya the truth, I didn't get far on medium difficulty.  or hard, I just didn't go anywhere. thank you for your feedback.
