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

The game is nice, in the early i thought that the bar moves really fast, but later I got used to it and liked

For anyone having trouble with the controls or getting the game to run...


CONTROLS:

To start the game, press Enter at "Game Start". Or, press Down and Enter to access the game's Sound Test.

Use the Up Down Left and Right arrow keys to move the paddle. X will launch Floatie at the start of a stage. Enter pauses/resumes the game. And, if Floatie is lucky enough to come across a special power-up, he can execute its power by pressing X.

Gamepads and joysticks are also supported for this game. When a device is plugged in, input will automatically be re-routed to the controller. Playstation controllers map the X key the Circle button, and X-Box controllers map the X key to the B button.


START UP: This game requires the June 2010 Direct X runtimes, or it will crash on startup. These runtimes can be downloaded from Microsoft's webpage here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=8109

I'm getting this error when I open it:

Too bad I'm not able to play it, I love this kind of games.

Didn't respond to any input on my computer, both keyboard and mouse controls returned nowt which is a shame as from what I can see from the screenshots you've kept the game withiin the real limits of the gameboy, which is great stuff!


I can't really rate it without playing but yeah, from what I could see, it's pretty cool!

Well done! I love how there's a story and a reason for the game. Something I tried but ran out of time trying to think about. Also, your game is really smooth and feels awesome to play. Fast-paced but not too frantic. I love the little graphical details like the bird turning into the ball and back, and the little explosion when a brick is destroyed.

Breakout makers represent! Tried to play but Avast flagged it and sent it out for an external scan. Will try again when it comes back!
