One of the best games I have played in this jam! I really liked that the game includes precise timing, planning your movement and remembering the numbers all at the same time. The elevator's movement really is very smooth, what adds an extra fun challenge. 11/10!

Absolutely fantastic, novel idea and a really fun and addictive little game with a lot of charm in it from the graphics + music. As others have said, i would love an indicator on each passenger about what floor they're going to. Otherwise brilliant!

I have played many one room games in this jam but this one must be the best and most original well done! One little criticism though (which I'm sure others have said too) it was hard for me to remember the floors to stop on with many people inside the elevator... Apart from that, great job with this game! Loved the music too!

Submitted

Haha, really fun game. I easily forgot which floor is needed for each passenger so I just rides and stops on each floor. I'm so poor elevator operator, lol.

Submitted

Super original idea and also kinda stressful. Sometimes it's a bit tough to get on the floor you want, but I suppose that's part of the game. I also kept forgetting which floor to bring somebody too but again, I just need to get better at it. Having them remind you would probably get rid of the challenge.

Yeah, I agree that reminder would make the game a bit too easy but in this game jam I learned that most players do not enjoy memory challenges. Thanks for playing and for your feedback!

This was really fun! I can totally see this as a mobile game and hope you do make it so. Very clean, simple, and with enough challenge to keep it entertaining without making it frustrating. I got 11  passengers but could've easily gone up to 100 :D

Thank you for playing! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'm also surprised that someone I follow from an old LD jam  (LD 40 if I'm not mistaken) ended up finding me here! Making a perfect score is not that hard but it's not too easy either. We are really happy how it turned out. There is a video of us doing a perfect run on the game's page if you are interested.

this is a treat to my taste of game... rated as one of my best so far

all the best for the rest of the jam

Your game was on my radar even before you commented. The file size is a little large so I postponed playing it for now but I will definitely rate and comment your game.

This was oddly satisfying :D Nice use of the theme and very well executed. Well, I had fun playing it multiple times and it's a really nice game! Well done!

Developer(+1)

Thanks for playing!

Very inventive and implemented with style!

I think it would be great if the player was given some small queue when holding the mouse would cause their elevator to stop on a new floor. I found myself over and undershooting a few times (often back to back).

Developer(+1)

Yeah we are aware of that problem. If you look at the older comments, I did a postmortem on the controls and whats mainly wrong with them in our opinion. Your suggestion is another way we could solve the main issue we have with the controls.

Thanks for the feedback!

Great game!! The mechanics is good and original, the visual is cute but I misreaded  the numbers 1 and 4 at first. The music choice <3

Submitted(+1)

Very original concept. It actually is very skills based and I definitely was pulling my hair out trying to time stopping the lift on the correct floor and remembering where everyone was wanting to go!I like that you added the indicator to say what floor people were waiting at, it was a nice touch. Well done :)

Cool idea, fun to play.

This game is surprisingly addictive, not to mention somehow both relaxing and nerve-racking. Controls were nice, I kinda liked that you couldn't come to a full stop immediately, it forced you to think about your timing. Looking back at it, this game also requires a bit of strategy about what order to pick up/drop off people, what to do when you forgot a floor or when the elevator's full, etc. Everything about this game is nice, with the music being especially enjoyable (and a funny choice).  Well done.

Developer

Thank you for the kind feedback!

This game is really nice, the art is great, the music choice is funny, the controls are easy to pick up. The game was hard for me since I couldn't remember which floors the passengers requested. Also, I think it needs an indicator about whether the elevator is full or not while moving. Otherwise, it is really fun and I enjoyed it a lot.

Developer

Thank you for the feedback! We agree on the indicator. The game doesn't tell the player well enough that elevator only has 5 slots.

Submitted

Really cool idea, I feel it lack a permanent indicator for when the elevator is full as opposed to the small "!" that pop up. It looks great, plays great, sounds great. I would have liked the elevator to stop a little bit faster, I often missed the floor that I had targeted.

Developer

Thank you for the feedback! I will keep that in mind if we do a post-jam update.

Really nice game with enjoyable physics. Tried several times but couldn't get to 100 grade. Good job!

Developer

You need to try harder

Cool idea! I liked the pixel graphics and strange controls :D

This was really inspiring game concept! Well done! :)

So it's basically an elevator simulator but a guy controlling the elevator instead, like it was in the 1920s. The controls are weird but I think it adds a special flavor to the game so it's actually a bit more challanging. I like the visuals and the execution is pretty good!

Developer

I'm glad someone actually liked the controls! Haha! Thank you!

The controls are quite hard to master but the idea is very good !

Developer

Thanks!
