Fun platformer. Cool idea to use the nails as platforms. Sprite art is great, but everything looks really tiny. Some zoom would be nice. Cool game.


Lovely little game! Great idea to have the nails be platforms, although it took me a while to realise :p Would probably benefit from larger borders because I kept clicking out of the window!


Glad you liked the concept! A good tip - I'll keep it in mind for next time, thanks!


It was challenging. Very cool you could jump on the things when you shoot them in the wall! 


Being able to jump on the arrows was a nice touch!


I wasn't able to kill the blue flames... was I supposed to just avoid them or was I doing it wrong? Was definitely a fun challenge. I tried it probably 6-7 times and dropped some spacemen into some nail traps. I liked the animation on their helmets too!


The flames should be able to die with three hits, may be some odd collisions or some misplaced clicks. I'm glad you enjoyed it, especially the animations. I cranked those out a few hours before the deadline and I was really happy with how the robots' animations turned out - those are my favorite too!

I actually never thought about leaving traps, I assume you dropped some nails at the bottom of a pit and had the enemies chase you into it - that's a great idea! It's really cool to see people using a mechanic I thought of in a way I never intended, nice going. Glad you got some fun out of the submissions.


I couldn't kill the flames either, sat and put in dozens of nails but no luck. Maybe a bug?


The wrench nail bow was cool to use, good job!  (I wanna learn how to do bow coding too!) Things looked a little small on my laptop so a bit hard to aim, but still cool game! Please check out my game 'Puma Cat' if you have time.


Thanks! I thought it would be a cool mechanic to make your own platforms as the only way to get around.  I'll give yours a look!


being able to shoot nails into the walls and then jump on them was pretty dope.


Glad you think so, I really like the idea of not having a double jump/massive ground jump, and only be able to really move around a level with platforms that you create. Thanks for the feedback!
