I think you need to improve the time that the ball needs to rewind, but I think you adjusted to the theme and made an addictive game in just one week. Congratulations!

I will just ignore the glitch that allows us to rewind indefinitely, because it's a time limited jam and you already covered a lot of freatures here, no time left to playtest and fixing bugs.

Gameplay is fun. Levels are not so restricted, we are allowed to complete in different ways in general.

I liked the explosion effect of the target circle :)

Developer

Ye,s the bug occured when I did the transition to webgl unfortunaly. Thanks !

Overall it is a fun game, but i could rewind as many times as I wanted to. Other than that I thought it was a really great game.

It would have been such a perfect game; BUT:

I dont think this was supposed to be possible. (i could infinetly rewind)


still a really well made and fun to play Game! really enjoyed it!

Submitted

Really nice game, the atmosphere feels so relaxing and calmed. Only thing I can say is that rewinding didn't add to its counter, but still good job, I liked it a lot!

Would appreciate it so much if you could rate my game too :)

Loved the game !! The music wins the heart !! Awesome , peaceful and smooth gameplay !! 

Loved how precisely each level is placed and designed !! 

Ooooo and the rewind mechanic about changing the reality !! Its unique and peaceful, but was not up to the theme in my opinion !! 

I love the game so much !! Nice work !!

Thanks for the review, I'm glad you like it !

What do you think we need to improve in the Rewind mechanic to fit with the theme ?

Submitted

I'mean it now looks like the ball is respawning its clones...rather than rewinding itself ! The actual path rewinding would look much better and feel etter with the rewind !! 

Developer(+1)

True ! Thanks for this review, we will think about that !

Submitted

I'd love to see... Your game is already so much polished and well designed puzzles... Adding this will increase the overall beauty of the game with new challenges. 

Submitted

Interesting mechanic. I liked that the collor palette was changing between levels

Submitted

Nice submission! I like the puzzles and the particles/effects! I think the rewind feature is a bit broken, since I can spam the ability right at the beginning of levels which just creates a million cells that eventually let me win.

Otherwise, great job! The concept is neat!

Developer

True, it's a big feature that was implemented by switching into WEBGL =/, we have to fix that for sure. Thanks for the review !

Submitted

Nice puzzle game. Interesting implementation of the rewind mechanics. And lots of levels (for a Jam game). I think it has potential to grow into a much larger commercial game. Congratulations!

Developer

Haha thank you very much.

We need to improve a lot and redo everything before to think about commercial purpose x).

Submitted

Really nice game. I liked the audio, the graphics and the puzzles.

Bug I found: When I finished the game and got back to the main menu, I think the music was playing twice at the same time?

Developer

Thanks for the comment. I want to say no,  but it's really possible that I have a bug in the singleton pattern😂😂😂. Thanks for the review, I will check it!

Submitted

I don't think it's normal but i can spam the rewind button to have an illimited number of clone in the game and i can use them to finish the level. Anyway the game idea it's not so bad.

Submitted

Good concept I just didn't really get what the rewind button is supposed to do. It just creates a copy of the cell and there is a UI element telling you have 0/2 rewinds but you can just spam it to complete the levels. Was this supposed to happen or does it need to make a copy of the cell at the start? Anyway good entry!

Developer(+1)

Haha you're right, it is a bug. in the first version (not the webgl one) the UI is working, but now, it's broken. You have to hold the rewind button to make the "second cell" rewind the first cell's path.

Submitted

The rewind button is a little bit broken, but the game feels really cosy. Only other thing I'd mention is that the art definitely feels like programmer art. Consider partnering up with someone in the future to be a dedicated artist for the game, because honestly it will completely change the feel of your game.

Developer(+1)

Thanks for this comment, that's true, we tried to look for a 2D artist but probably too late. For sure there is more to be prepared !

Submitted

Looks good I like the idea and I think it is fun to play! :) Very satisfying feeling when you can complete a level! :D

Submitted

Interesting puzzles and fun gameplay, but the theme fells not fulfiled you just restart level.

Developer

Hi, thanks for the review. The rewind button is locked in the first part of the tutorial. 

Submitted

Can you review mine

Interesting concept. A game to try
