This was an awesome game, well presented. Art is specially great and sound is just fine.

I really felt like the character would randomly get tons of speed or slower sometimes, or change speed weirdly while attacking, some gaps looked too far to reach, but then I tried again and character speed was different somehow and I jumped over the floating burger and landed on the pit again.

Thank you for the feedback (:

The speed increase has to do with the puke on the floor. You pick up speed while walking on the puke on the floor.

I LOVE THIS GAME like a lot of people have said the controls are a bit wierd but the art and animations are great the wall jumping mechanic was a bit hard to understand but i got the hang of it also something that i would add is checkpoints i found it anoying to restart every time that i die. Great job.

Developer

Thank you for the feedback! There is one checkpoint half way through the level, and at the boss. The first Checkpoint is the man holding the Checkmark sign, and the second is once you enter the door.

game is awesome, it was fun to play, took me a while to figure out the controls but other than that its cool.

It's quite hard to get used to the controls, for example the jumping should be spacebar as in other games. It's a good game nonetheless.

Developer

Thats fair. I recommend using a Usb controller if you have one, this could help fix your problem. Thank you for the feedback (:

This game is  fantastic seriously. The art and music put you in the environment, all the animations and the player are so juicy. Fantastic. The best game of the JAM. 

You are amazing! For how long are you working with game dev ? I just made my very first game and after playing this one I feel motivated to get better. I hope one day I can make one game so good as this one... I am in this world for just 2 months.... Well done !

Thank you so much for the kind words! I have been making games for about 7 years, but only got serious about it in the past 3. The artist who did most of the sprite work for the game has been doing pixel art for just over a year. Once again, thank you so much for the kind words, I wish you well on your gamedev journey.

with a usb controller the game controls are the easiest to me, the game is really fun and has strong old platformer vibes. i love the art and im weak so parts of the game are frustrating but still fun 

Developer

Thank you for the feedback!

I like the art style and game but the controls get in the way of the gameplay sometimes.

Developer (1 edit)

Can you give a specific example of when the controls get in the way? I would like to try and improve the game.

Submitted(+1)

I mean mainly the positioning of the keys used especially on a european keyboard. Z for example is quite hard to reach on a non qwerty layout.

Developer(+1)

Ah, so keyboard is an issue in other regions, that makes sense. For now Idk what to say other than if you have a USB controller you can use that instead. In the future I will try and add in rebind-able keyboard controls. 

Submitted(+1)

Another way is to use keys like q and e which are the same on most keyboard but it is not a big deal and did not affect my ratings of your game :)

Developer(+1)

I'll keep that in mind (:

I'm glad it didn't change your rating of the game, and I'm glad you were still able to enjoy it despite the control issue. Thanks a bunch for playing it.
