Thanks for playing!

I should definitely have been more obvious about the controls. I'm stumped as to why you found they didn't work ingame, I've tested on both windows and mac, but maybe it's a window focus thing. For my next jam game I'll make sure to prioritise making an intro screen with controls.

I'm super psyched you did end up playing it using the on-screen controls though, as that's "The way it's meant to be played" :-)

Glad you liked it!

Very nice game! I included it in my compilation video series of all of the GBJam 5 games, if you'd like to take a look :)

Yeah, I think you're right.

I feel it would be cheating to change the game after the deadline, so I'll keep it in mind for future jam projects.

The way I've made all my menus, I had to build up the UI system from scratch as I wanted it to be tile based like the rest of the game. It was part of my goal to make a navigable menu that allows you to start, restart, quit, as well as view controls, but I didn't get around to it in time.

I hoped for a game jam it'd just be a minor thing, especially because of the buttons on the gameboy itself, but I'll definitely keep it in mind for next time :-)

I had a blast, and learned lot of new tricks. As my first solo gam, it's been a great way to challenge myself and learn something new in areas I've never spent time before (especially graphics and UI).

So please, if you have any more feedback, feel free to dump it on me :-) It's the only way you know how to improve and do better next time.

think you should show the game commands in the game nor everyone read all information before download and the keys isnt obvious

I was notified by a friend that the controls were not immediately obvious from the submission page, so have now copied it over from the game page to here:

- The digital pad (Arrow keys) to move the cursor

- B to enter the selection menu

- A to place objects

- C to zoom closer to the GameBoy screen.

- Q to quit.

- Esc to pause
