Very fun although the puzzles can be tedious, also, there's a delay in the player jump.

Developer

thanks for the feedback!

Actually, it was a chrome issue. For some reason, on google chrome, I simply jump higher and the game runs at a lower frame-rate. Playing through this game on a different browser, it's AWESOME! Super geometric, awesome puzzle-action levels, and good control!

Thanks a lot! I’m glad you enjoyed it :)

Unfortunately, level 2/10 (the one with the spiked ceiling) seems to be impossible. No mater what side I pick, I hit the spiked ceiling. I think it might be an issue with low framerate, because the school potato I'm running this on runs this at about 10 fps. I'll play this again and leave a more proper review when I get home and can play this on my actual computer.

Really nice take on the theme! I really like everything no complaints other than what I heard from some others is that I was confused between the hexagon side and the circle side. Other than that really good job!

Developer

Yes, a couple of people have mentioned that! I'll definitely change the hexagon side to a square post-jam. Thanks!

Submitted

Really nice concept!

Developer

thanks a lot :)

So many mechanic, the game doesn't get a chance to be boring XD

You did an amazing job with the level design and the background music,

although I would rather it continue playing when starting a new level and not start from the beginning since it is feeling repetitive that way

Overall a very solid game, well done!

Developer

thank you!

Very solid, clever game. Love the mechanics, and the graphics and sound aren't bad either! I love the sound effects of stabbing stuff, and hooking onto the buttons, they're really great.

While the gameplay is really good, there are a few things I feel could be improved:

  • I'd prefer Space as a jump button instead of Up/W
  • A few levels ask for fairly precise movement, but that's hard to get due to the lack of a variable jump height, and the player sliding off of platforms.
  • A lot of the levels that require timing are very strict - Level 10 in particular is tight enough that I kept losing because the enemy bounced off while the block was fading away.
  • The hexagon side of the puzzle piece is too similar to the round side, and  I kept getting stuck on one level due to thinking the hex button was the round one. Maybe try a different shape?

Despite that, the game was still a lot of fun, and I like how there were achievements for replayability. It's a very good game overall, and it'd only get better with more levels and mechanics.

Thank you so much for such thorough feedback!
It’s literally a matter of seconds to add space as another jump, don’t know why I didn’t just add it as an option. 
Variable jump height has been mentioned a few times and I’ll definitely add that first thing post-jam.

Lowering the friction and time restraint of some levels is an excellent idea too.

I’m not sure why I went with a hexagon instead of like…a square? I guess I just like hexagons. Anyway that’s a really good point as well.

One of my personal favorite mechanics was the enemies that could press the buttons. That opened a lot of possibilities.

Thank you once again for such thoughtful feedback, it is very much appreciated.

Super polished game! The puzzle platforming mix feels great to play and the great effects are a fun added bonus

Developer

Thanks!

Submitted

great game love the idea and the mechanics i would love to see a full version one day

the only thing that it needs would be to make the jump better with variable jump height

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! You're completely right, I'll definitely add variable jump height post-jam.

Submitted

Amazing Game!

everything is great, well polished.

5 stars

Developer(+1)

Wow thank you so much :D

Submitted

Very good game. Clever mechanics and I love the tutorial explained as you go through the level.

It is a very clever idea.

If I really have to give a suggestion, maybe the feeling of the jump could be a bit improved (Even if I do not know really well to tell you how XD). In any case, this was a very good game, especially given the limited amount of time of the Jab. Good work!


P.S.

Consider trying also my game leaving feedback, I would appreciate it a lot :D

Developer(+1)

Thanks! I think adding variable jump height depending on how long you hold the jump button will help the jump feel better.
Will do :)
