Really interesting game, loved the level design, definitely the spotlight on this entry. Simple but proves the concept. The control were tight and it all felt pretty intuitive. Great entry.

It'd be cool if you tried my entry! https://itch.io/jam/game-off-2018/rate/338156

Thanks. I've already played your game, but maybe I will again and leave a comment.

Loved the level "on the double"! Game felt very polished, did not encounter any problems / bugs! All it was missing was a intro on the story behind it, but it's a game jam, so it's normal to not have one.

Amazing work dude!

Developer

thanks. I put a lot of work into it so I'm glad you think so! I definitely wished I had time to make an intro.

First time I ran it, it crashed.
Second time I ran it, my computer restarted.

...

Turns out bloody Windows was trying to install a bloody update.

Now that I'm back from that interruption, I can say I like the game, the puzzle idea and the mechanics. My only nitpick is that the jump feels oddly high.

Developer

Well, there is a linux version :)

Thanks for persevering through and giving the game a shot. I agree the jump is pretty high. It can feel like a while waiting to touch down again.

Love your theme interpretation! I enjoyed it a lot, really :) Good job designing those levels!

There's only one thing I would suggest you to change: the xbox controls are not well described in the pause menu (instead of shooting with B, you shoot using X). That's all! :)

thanks! I'm glad the game was fun.

Sorry about the xbox controller. I put it in as a last minute addition so it didn't get much attention.

Don't worry! It's just a minor thing :)

Developer

This is an interesting puzzle game :D

Developer

thanks!

Interesting mechanics, especially with the firing+detonation to get through obstacles. I got the idol, and I hope it really does make them happy... I had to kill a caveman to get it! Nice job!

Developer

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it
