This is my first time using Unity and itch.io to produce a game, so I learned a lot about game development for web browsers!

First Impression: I completed it... second time! I enjoyed playing it if I'm honest. It was a good level of challenge, making you need to memorize the way you came so you had to concentrate and the green arrow wasn't making it "too easy" as a result. Liked the cup of coffee and jazz when I won. Rewarding.


Constructive (honest) feedback: The graphics for the bomb has a higher resolution compared to everything else, which makes it look a bit wrong / out of place. Perspective was a bit misleading to begin with, as it was side on view of the house - yet then it was like a top down maze (or can Little Dude just float around perhaps?). Finally, to increase replay value, it'd be good if the gem positions were some what randomised. For example, to ensure it is still challenging, you could create 9 different gem positions and randomise which of those are selected. That way it makes playing the game again a new challenge (to some extent).

Thanks for playing! Thank you for the feedback - it was super helpful in recognizing what to improve. I'll definitely keep resolution and perspective in mind when making future games!

Nice Work.

Simple and clear, I found myself with a sense of urgency and I really wanted to save my house!

I could see some increasing level of difficulty, new maps, etc. Fun, Thanks!
