Hey, nice entry! Lots of stuff you can do to this to spice it up, but nice work for the limited amount of time.

The character has a nice feel to it. Jam platformers in Unity often feel floaty, but this one has a satisfying amount of gravity. The music is nicely meditative, too.

OH Bktaco, I didn't realize this one was your game! I actually played it on stream last night! It was a lot of fun. I got to like 50+ candies and then I died cause I got too comfortable 😂 The guy jumps quite a bit higher than his move speed, so the gaps are pretty hard to hit sometimes. Definitely challenging. And I dig the art style, but I'd recommend a thicker stroke around the character to match the blocks / trees maybe. Was definitely a lot of fun, and I had a good 4-5 attempts before figuring out the sweet spot to make the jump! Also great work on the procedural levels. I couldn't tell until I got far enough in and was like... wait a minute... This just keeps on going!

Thanks for playing and for the great feedback!

Neat game I had fun playing this. The candy can be a little hard to see if it's drawn over a tree, drawback of the gameboy color palette I suppose. 

Good job!

Developer

Thanks, I hope to make the candy move or spin in a future version which should make them a little easier to spot.

Nice jam platformer. Keep adding things :) Funny jamming idle animation!

Developer

Thanks for playing! I've got plenty of things left to add that I didn't get a chance to during the jam.

Got to 160 candies before getting bored : D is there some kind of random generation/looping going on with the level, or is it actually that long?

Developer

Its a randomly generated platform endless runner. It goes forever until you fall off and platform.  Great score btw!

Nice I got like 34 candies collected, very unfotunate the music didn't loop. Besides that a nice game, a solid base with lot of room to add things on and make it something crazy :)

Thanks for letting me know about the music. During the quick testing I did I never got far enough to notice it.  I'll get that fixed in a future version!

haha no problem, you are not the only one :P

Main character's animation is cool!  Staring at Gameboy Green for a long time always hurts my eyes haha, but I'm sure others don't mind.  Keep improving~  Check out my entry 'Puma Cat' if you can!

Developer

Thanks I'll check out your game. I'm planning on playing as many as I can!
