Dang it, This game looked amazing, but I get an error when running it...


     main.lua:13: bad argument #2 to 'newSource' (string expected, got no value)


     [C]: in function 'newSource'
     main.lua:13: in function 'load'
     [C]: in function 'xpcall'
     [C]: in function 'xpcall'

Which is kind of odd seeing as that line clearly has a string with the path to 'theme_day.ogg'...

Using a mac with osx 10


I also included this game in an article of my favorites here!


Very clever idea that is well executed. Amazing stuff.


Congratulations Midipixel! Beautiful graphics, great pallete, awesome sound and gameplay! Nice Job =D


Awesome game love the 'link cable' mechanics and that both of them have different abilities! The art is fantastic, the soundfx+music fit the whole game well and altogether makes it one of my favourite games of this jam!


Very nice entry! I had to play alone, but the idea is interesting and fun. Also, lovely art and music :)


I didn't play too much of this as I don't have anyone to play with on hand, but I'm definitely going to revisit this one with a friend! The artwork is gorgeous, and it seems like it would be a lot of fun to play as intended!


Best game of the jam POINT


I love the two player concept, although it's rather confusing to control by yourself and can be a bit frustrating to have to do the same section twice; or more if you die. One complaint that I do have is that you seem to need to jump far earlier than you'd expect before it's too late and you just walk off the platform, adding a brief window where you can jump even while falling would be a great improvement.


A very nice game!

Unfortunately I did play alone but enough to get the mechanics and spirit.

Very clever! Indeed our games have a lot in common, but with a lot of difference!

I loved the art. Congrats!


Fantastic style and really cool mechanic! Cooperative teamwork games are great but I haven't seen them combined with platforming yet. Would love to see it developed further!


Stunning entry ! It's great as an introductory game for those new to the platforming-teamwork genre if there's one, as the later stages will definitely be easier with another person. But beautiful palettes and gorgeous music it's definitely very solid for this jam !


Impressively detailed, amazing work!


I'm definately saving this for when I have a second player, I played by myself for a few minutes but it felt like I was missing out. Either way, good job!


It looks really great and the multiplayer concept is nice !


Great palette choices and pixel art & tileset. Love how the characters can switch abilities, but only when in proximity! It creates a real strong relationship between them :)

I agree that it would be an awesome game to play link-style between two gameboys. Very well done!


Really really freakin neat, awesome job

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


Beautiful graphics, and I love the split graphics. Would make a cool gameboy link-cable style game.
