A pretty cool use of the theme! For a 3 hour game, this is a good entry! I also want to congratulate you for being the first to upload the game to this jam :D

Developer

haha thanks for playing!

I made it to the moon :]. I agree with what the others said about the arc, but I also think it's really easy to out jump the ghosts. I think some other kind of challenge or obstacle would be nice.

Developer

thanks for playing! other obstacles would be a great idea! :D

I liked the concept and the art was great, my only real criticism is that the jumps needed some element of power; be it holding spacebar to jump further or basing it off of how far the mouse is. Just a bit of added control to show where you are going to land.

Developer

thanks for playing! i'll be adding in the arc the player should follow once I update the game/redo it, the reason its not in the game was simply just a timing issue lol, but thanks for the feedback it helps a lot! :D

Yeah timing is the killer but that's also part of the fun of the small game jam. Fail quickly and learn how to do things a bit faster. Hope to see you next week.

Well done! The only things i really have to say would maybe have an arc showing where you will land as opposed to the arrow pointing to which direction you will go up, because it is kinda difficult to determine where I'm going to land. Other than that, good job!

Developer

thanks for playing! and yes I'll be adding in the arc  if I redo this game/update it :D thanks for the feedback!

Nice! I made It to the moon! I liked the art and the feeling of impending doom as i was chased into space

Developer

thank you so much for playing! :D

If you could show an arc of where I will land, it would make this game much easier. I think your main problem right now is that to be good at your game, you need to memorize the level and where exactly to aim to get to the next platform. there is a lot of guessing involved in where I will land. Also, I would experiment with decreasing the total amount of time I stay in the air. It is just down time, and reducing that tends to make your game more fun.

Developer

thanks for playing! I had the initial idea to implement the arc feature but I ran out of time lol definitely something to add should I do a project like this in the future! :D thank you so much for the feedback!
