This is like, the perfect scope to make a game jam out of ! Very short, very simple, and I appreciate that there's no hard fail if you accidentally launched yourself back a few barrels, ahaha. The spritework is gorgeous and the music feels very duck, but it's pleasant to listen to :3 All round great job !

Developer

Wow! thank you so much <33 that means a lot

Very interesting game idea! Impressive graphics, mostly accurate to real GB specs as well! As for the sound, well, it doesn't sound like a Game Boy... Sorry...
Also, very nice finding a fellow Construct user!

Developer(+1)

Yay cool! I barely see people using construct, although it just rocks!! 

Thank you for your honesty. I appreciate that. You are right. Maybe I should work on the sound for post jam.

Great idea, making a entire game based on DKC barrel mechanic, i spent some time playing it xD. Loved the graphics, music and sfx.

Developer

Thanks a lot. I always had so much fun with the barrels back then in DKC =D

What an interesting game! Such a simple idea, makes a very adicting game! My current score is 6000, but I'm pretty sure I can do way better! Well done!

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

Thanks so much. I really appreciate people enjoy my game even more when they get addicted to it (in a healthy way of course, haha) 

Today, I even implemented a simple online leaderboard for the post jam version :)

Oh yes! That's exactly what we need! Thanks!

Nice cute game, really well done. Love the bonus points for jumping over some barrels.

I've scored 5900. Amazing graphics style! It reminded me of afternoons playing Donkey Kong Country (SNES).

Tricky little mechanic but nice game!

A mechanic that needs no comment, besides, I liked the audiovisual and the bonus system for advancing barrels.

Submitted(+1)

I think I'm addicted ... it's a simple and engaging mechanic, good job!!! scored only 3900 so far.

Brilliant mini-game based off the barrel shooting from DKC. That mechanic alone if perfect to build a full game out of, and you did just that! Well done adding the bonuses for skipping barrels too! 

Developer

Thank you, that means a lot :)

Very polished game! I love how the count down "restarts" after you shoot yourself into  one of the countdown barrels.

Developer

Hey thank you a lot ! Haha I wasn't sure if I should put a switch or boolean in it to start acting like a normal barrel, but then I totally forgot it when I run out of time :P

Submitted(+1)

Very good looking game, also the music and sounds are nice! Very cool transition from start screen to the actual game with this countdown.

Developer

Thank you ! Actually, I created the transition by accident at first, when I just randomly put that logo above the first barrel in my test environment. It stuck there when I start playing and then I realized how cool it would be if the main menu is in the actual gameplay :P

Awesome graphics and simple yet fun gameplay ;)

Developer

Sure :)

Please make sure you also play and rate my game entry ;)
