A very well made game! I think the combat is a bit hard to get used to at the beginning, but then it gets better with newer weapons so its fine. Loved the graphics and the audio!

Amazing job overall!

Developer

Thank you for the feedback!  Was my first time trying to do melee~ thanks for playing!

Super well done!

You nailed the atmosphere 100%!

I would only suggest that you made the hidden-viewing area a bit larger to I don't have to keep tapping the move button just so I don't fall off a pit. :P

More frequet checkpoints would also be cool.

The music was awesome - but it stopped playing when I got the hammer :(

Anyways, congrats for making the game!

Developer

Happy you liked it! Thanks for the awesome feedback~ I will add your suggestions to my notes!

I enjoyed playing the game it was really fun, but to be honest ...the ending sucked.

Developer(+1)

It was a very rushed ending haha (had to submit).  At first I had it end and go back to the first level so the player was really "trapped", but a friend said they didn't like it~

Submitted(+1)

Wow, what a great entry! I wouldn't of even guessed it was for a Jam :O :D 

Developer

Thanks for the  kinda words! I'm really fast at mediocre Photoshop art haha~

Submitted(+1)

Thanks for playing!  I will rate yours for sure~

The graphics and sounds are really nice and I loved the trail renderer on top of the helmet! The first skull enemy was very hard to kill and took me about 6 attempts but apart from that it was great

Developer(+1)

Haha thanks!  I had fun playing with the trail renderer~ Thanks for the feedback.  I will tone down the first boss so players can progress better (plus I wanna learn how to do immunity frames someday)  Thanks for playing!

This is a really nice game. I think this one has the "best atmosphere" of the games I have played so far in this jam. Everything gives you this "winterly" feeling, the soundtrack, background and snow falling from above.

Developer

Thanks!  Glad you liked the vibe~ I really enjoy working on atmosphere sometimes too much haha, get distracted from coding.

Nice entry, a bit hard for me but it was due to the enemies not having any knock back when I attacked them. Anyway, I can see there was a lot of time taken to make this game and it has some cool art and nice sounds effects, congrats!

Developer

Thank you for the feedback!  I think the first boss should have been easier for sure, to let players progress smoother!  Thanks for playing

Submitted(+1)

Background art is awesome! I also really liked the art for the player. The shield mechanic is awesome because the game would be very annoying without it.  I really like it.

Developer(+1)

Thanks a bunch!  Your kind words are awesome~

That was fun. Great job. Rated :)

Developer

Thanks for checking it out!

Wow, its looks great! Shader with non-visible object is cool! Great work!

Developer

Thanks!  I was happy I got it working :D  I had more cool ideas to use it, but time was getting short hehe.

It's a funny game. It's very innovative. By the way, I have some advice you can consider and maybe your game will be better!

I think that using the real physics 2d box is not a wise choice. When I firstly played, I was stuck int the beginning because the box rotated and then blocked my way. Next, you can make a pause button or use Esc key because when I firstly stuck in the beginning, I can't restart and have to close the game and start it again. Finally, I think the check points are a little bit unfriendly. When I died in the second boss battle, I will transfer to the point where I pick the shield.

But it's a nice game. Good job!

Developer

Thanks for the great comment!  I totally forgot about a pause menu haha that is definitely needed~  I was actually try to make check points from a YouTube tutorial but unfortunately couldn't get them to work.  I will definitely study how to make the.  Thanks for the bug report!  perhaps I could do a circle collider and lock z axis?  Thanks a bunch for playing!

Developer

The Trailer!

Here is a game-play video if you don't have time to DL and install~ Good day!
