It is so difficult it was driving me nuts, and I absolutely loved it!

Please make this into a complete game!

Great theme interpretation, I love the 3d style. it reminds me a lot games from the 90s.

The gameplay is great, it's quite difficult but I feel it more challenging than frustating. 
As summary a solid entry!

Developer

Woohoo, thanks a bunch for the review !

First of all good job for making a 3d game run so smoothly on the webGL. Wasn't able to do that with mine :P.

The interpretation is very clever, the game is fun and challenging. I would actually buy a polished, full version of this on steam. The memorization quickly becomes too much for me but I should actually play your game and get better at memorizing!

Hey There,

We are very far from putting this on Steam, but thanks a lot for the compliment !

Balancing was the last thing we did and we lacked time for it. The consumable items are meant to control the length of the sequence, but it eventually becomes too long. Games always need moar playtest ๐Ÿ˜‰

About performance, we simply used baked lightmaps with fairly low settings, and we built with the "linker target" setting to "Both", which enables WebAssembly (a more modern alternative to ASM.js). The rest of the credits goes to Unity ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I'll make sure to check your submission !

Interesting combination of mechanics. As others have said it's very challenging, but rewarding to get right. Awesome work!

Developer

Sure I will :)

Really challenging and enjoyed playing it!!!

Do check our game too ๐Ÿ˜

Developer

Thanks for your comment. Sure I'm gonna check your game :D.

Very difficult, but really interesting concept and very intuitive controls! It also seemed very complete, all the functionality was there and it didn't feel like anything was missing.

Developer

We didn't have a lot of time to balance the game and it turned out to be a bit too much difficult but it used to be even worst :D. Thanks for your comment.

Maybe I am missing something, but I am constantly running and not missing sequences but I still die. Really cool concept and degree of completion is great!

Developer

Hi. The browser version of the game does not work as expected for everyone so if you played  this one it might explain some of the issues you've encountered. Thanks for your comment !

Developer

Also you have consumable items that help a lot. You pick two for each level, and other randomly spawn on the terrain during a game. This bit was less explained than the rest in the tutorial, however.

It is hard, but very satisfying.

Developer

Thanks for the comment :)
Balancing was intentionally on the hard side to avoid going through the 4 levels with too much ease, but it could definitely be made better with more time into it!
