Love the minimalist work on the spriteart, and the animation is yummy, gameplay is great, and using that gummy gum Nevers felt so satisfying, really a well polished game !! 

If you got some spare time, pass by test my game out ;) 

Submitted

Awesome game, lovely theme and music.

Submitted

Wow. It looks, sounds and plays great! Nice work!

Very interesting mechanics and challenging game as well! Really good entry! Well done!

PS: Feel free to try my game out! Cheers!

Uoh, this game is amazing.

I like so much mechanics, art and sounds. 

I'm fun to much, I completed all 52 stars and unlocked the secrets haha. Each level shows you a new things and the difficulty increases in a balanced way.

Really love the way platforming feels in this game! The puzzle/level design is solid as well. I also appreciate the drop in difficulty compared to the typical Case Portman game, I actually felt like the challenge here was perfect for my level of skill. Overall I enjoyed this a lot!

Developer(+1)

Haha this made me laugh out loud! I'm glad you got to play a game that isn't my regular hardcore difficulty! Thanks for playing!! 

Submitted

Very fun all around! A great gameplay mechanic that really makes you plan out your moves, fun puzzles around getting stars, and the graphics and visuals were seriously amazing! 

One thing I will say is that I wish it were possible to heal somewhere within one stage, as I lost two health points right at the beginning, and then later died towards near a door and had to redo all my progress for that small section, despite the fact I lost that several doors ago.

All in all though, very fun game, there's definitely a very nice difficulty curve that teaches you how to accomplish something before it throws more at you. The level design is great, the gameplay is unique and fun, huge props for this gem of a game!

Thanks Skyler, that's some great feedback! I couldn't agree more with the health points and replenishing, I play it back now and wish I did that too! Hopefully I'll update the game with a better health system. My only other regret is not having enough time to implement a save/level select system. Thanks again!

I'd love to see an update with those kinds of changes if you ever get around to it! This game is incredible and has a lot of potential!

Submitted

Really polished and fun game. The gum sound effects also deliver an additional satisfaction when performing the actions. I would support a  full release!

Developer

Thank you Chroma, that means a lot!

Submitted

Winner imo. Music, gameplay , everything, is just spot on. A Switch release please!

Developer(+1)

Wow thanks! Hopefully this will turn into something in the future!

Submitted

It Will :) 

Submitted

I'm really impressed with how polished you got the game. and you got the gameboy aesthetic spot on. The level design is really fun too!

Developer(+1)

Thanks Foletto! Gameboy was my jam as a kid and I love dabbling within the limitations!

Submitted

I am really impressed by this game. The mechanics and level design is perfect. When you think you master the trick, new mechanic is introduced. You never get bored of playing this game. I agree with the comments below, you should definitely make it a full game and release on consoles. I would pay for it. The graphic and music are excellent as well. Can't believe it was made in a game jam. Thank you for showing me how high the sky is. I will keep learning and hope one day I may achieve your level.

Developer

Thanks, that means a lot! You'll get there buddy, just keep on keeping on!

Submitted

excellent music. fun to play. would play a full game on the Switch

Developer

That's awesome to hear, maybe in the future I'll work on this some more and maybe just maybe. ;) 

Submitted

Such a cute game. I was amazed at how long this game was given it was made in a Jam, every time I thought it would be the end there was another level. Really interesting mechanic I haven't seen before, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Developer(+1)

Haha, I almost went too overboard on the levels since I was running out of polish time. I almost even added an extra set of 3!

Thanks for the play bud!

Submitted

"You got 51 stars. Next time try getting all 52."

Fun difficulty curve and I liked the change of pace for the final level (sure wish I didn't miss the secret though).  Sound, sprites and mechanics all really well implemented.

Developer

Ouch! Maybe next time!! Thanks so much for the play!

Submitted

Good graphics, lots of collectibles, good music, fun mechanic, what more could you ask for?

Developer

Thanks, much appreciated. Maybe more flavoured gum!? ;) I'll have a tickle with your submission very soon, cheers!

Difficult & nice game, the music is perfect for a Kirby game.

Developer

Thank you! Yeah my bud Joel did outstanding work on the music!

Submitted

Amazing game!! I beat it and unlocked something (Spoiler?)!

The graphics are fantastic! Gum color pallete fits perfectly. Music sticks to the head like gum (tu dum tss).

I didn't find any bugs or anything that interfered with the gameplay.

Great Job!

Developer(+1)

Awesome! Thanks for the play Alex! I'll jump on Jester's Helper ASAP, it looks fantastic!!
