How was your jamming experience? Were you able to produce more or less than you expected?
This was my first game jam ever and I'm super pleased to see how much I can accomplish in so little time! I wouldn't have made this on my own but I'm really glad to have done it, and I learned some neat little tricks while making it that will help me on my other projects. Thanks for the inspiration :)

How did you apply the theme to your entry?
I took space literally and made that the setting. The sport of rodeo becomes quite different now that it's set in a wacky space world. You could also say it's part of the gameplay: you'll spend a good bit of time falling through space, trying to close the space between you and the back of the creature you're riding, without going too far in the wrong direction and hitting the ground.

Nice little game found it pretty hard never did get 5k points but I unlocked the other levels and gave them a try.  Is the height you are thrown off random since sometimes I would barely fly off and others times I would go way into the sky.

Love the idea of a rodeo theme combined with outer space, two of my favorite things. I suck poo but the game is fun! :D

That was a really cool and fun idea! I really liked the dialogue, it was well done and funny! The core mechanic of space-bull riding was fun and I loved how you used being thrown off to land on the space-bull. Excellent work on this!

This game kicked me in the butt but that made it all the more satisfying when I finally beat a level. Stop laughing at me, alien! I got this! Enjoyable game!

Wow! This is a very great, polished experience. Great entry! I liked all of the dialogue. The riding mechanic was interesting. With level 2 the window was small so it made it hard(er) to stay on the croc. But some challenge is good. Nice job!

Very cool mechanic, very innovative. A bit hard but it just needs a bit of balancing. Overall a good entry.

Developer(+1)

thank you! would you have any suggestions for balancing, by chance?

Submitted(+1)

I'm not the best at balancing myself but I think reducing the size of the asteroids should be enough.

Oh really awesome!  I especially liked the opening scene dialog with the boss, I want to learn how to do that! The sprites have a great style too, very expressive art like his body position when falling from space.  Great work! Please check out my entry game 'Europa'.  I really appreciate feedback in game jams because I get goals to work on next.

Great concept! I love the art and think the physics usage was quite clever.

I like it but  it kinda tests your patience when the character goes up :v

Developer(+1)

Submitted(+1)
