It play well and the music is pretty nice, also maybe using the spotlight should cost some energy points to use so you can't just spam it.

my final score was 413

Developer

Jesus, are you a hacker or something? You basically more than doubled my own high score. Or is it that you had low frames, thus plenty of time to make your next move, perhaps?

Also, I think you're right, it'd make sense not to make the player use it for free. Wish I thought of that earlier. Thanks anyway. :)

Ok so I tried setting the graphics quality to fastest and that made it run way faster so the energy cost of the spotlight was not much of a problem. also you should use Time.deltatime with the movement that would fix the speed problem.

new score 52

Developer

Makes more sense lol.

Yes I'll try it next time, but I didn't have enough time to polish my game when I realized performance might be an issue.

Nice game! I like how the design, aesthetics and music go hand in hand . Good concept. Overall a great time killer :-)

Nice concept and clean simple graphics. The music was not too annoying (especially compared to other games) and the spotlight mechanic was a good idea.

I wish you innovate a bit further but other than that good job!

The spotlight mechanic is interesting and fit the theme but I've seen it in too many games to think it is original anymore. The controls are weird at first but If you keep W pressed and just use A and D to steer they do the job. The graphics are ok, they are kind of retro and I like that, the music also has a retro felling so I like it but it is a bit dissonant at times.

Good luck for the jam!

It would be great if you'd check out our game too https://itch.io/jam/cgj/rate/477069

Hi, very tired man here, so i played the game and now im gonna comment about it. The game graphics are cool but thats really the only thing this game has going for it. The controls make the game very weird and unplayable, especially when your always on the run for more energy, maybe it was an artistic choice but meh. The audio is alright and the UI is good. The game doesn't fit the jam perfectly bit it does the job. It doesn't fit it perfectly cuz the game isn't really lying, the cube things are just traps i guess, but like i said it does the job. Kudos! Very well done!

Developer

Thanks!

Okay so the first time I was like "nah man I don't need instructions" and died so fast xD

The second run after reading it was way better.

Good job!

Wanted to play but I'm on Mac :( https://itch.io/jam/cgj/rate/476728

Developer

Aw, sorry man. :(

I'll do my best to learn how to diversify between platforms next time.

Submitted

The control is a little tricky but the idea is unique and interesting! 

Is it a high score? 

Developer

Thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it! :D

It's not a bad score, but I can have it beat with a few tries. But of course, I tested this game over and over, so I got a little head start. :)

Also, I rated your game as well. By now, I tested about 10-15 games from this jam, and yours definitely belongs in my top 2 ex-aequo with another great game. Outstanding graphics, great job! Were you in a team?

I am solo. All the resources are made by myself.

Thanks

Had already rated yours pre posting. Not perfect, but it's actually one of the best ones I tried for the ''fun'' category. It's challenging, and overall definitely better than mine.

Good job! :)
