Super original!! can I be considered a battle royale where you are the ony player?? haha.. Super cool art and animation with so little ammount of pixels!. Particle effects and camera shaking where superb. Great job!! A solid contestant!

What a bizarre puzzle platformer. In a good way. 

Developer

Thank you.

Really lovely puzzles and easy to learn mechanics! It was nice to see each creature having its own mechanics. I see a handful of games with the same monster simply reskinned! <3 Great work!

Cool idea and nice build up in puzzles. I liked when there were multiple ways to solve levels. I did think some levels were too hard to do right, particular the start of the last level, and I couldn't work out level 7 and had to skip it. Nice original idea though :)

Developer

Thank you. The problem with level 7 is our fault since it relies a lot on timing and not on problem solving (attacking at the bottom enemy right after the top one attack then quickly launching upward before the cool down time is over). It can also be solved by chance if the physics misses out on the vine-vs-bullet collision. I redesigned this level to have more problem solving and less reliance on timing which I will upload after the jam ends.

A very cool and smart idea! Loved the aesthetics and being different monsters :)

Stay funky,

short and sweet experience. This feels like it has a lot of Potench for a full game. You could really expand on this mechanic. Loved figuring out the order of doing things. Some levels felt like maybe there was more than one way. I'm not 100% sure if that is true, but I couldn't stop playing till I beat them all

Developer

Thank you. Yes, some levels can be won in multiple ways. Unfortunately, most of the level are just introductory level and I figured out later that they could've been done better. I originally thought the last level had only one possible order, but It turned out there was another one and there could be more. I will make sure to enhance the level design after the jam.

Wow! This game has such a cool concept, and it definitely made me think. This is an awesome take on the "make sure you're the only one left" idea, and I love all the different types of creatures. Great job!

Developer

Thank you.

This concept is awesome. I had to spend some time figuring out each level. I'd like to see more of this. You should continue to develop this concept.

If you have some time please play and rate my game:

Thank you. I've just played and rated your game, it is awesome.

Loved the game art.. very minimal and to the point. Took a while to realize the concept of the game. If i had to put one feedback..it would be that attack animation is very difficult to understand.

Developer

Thank you. You are right, the attacks don't give good feedback about what is going on, especially the bats.

Submitted(+1)

Wow, I find the idea incredible. The aesthetics of the game is very good. The level design is well done. One of my favorite games of this game jam =D Good job !

Developer

Thank you. I am glad you liked it.

This is a cool idea, I really feel an "Inside" vibe about it with the control element of things. I agree with the other comment about the jaw worm thing. and there were a few times I couldn't kill things with the initial creature I controlled that might need a little tweak.

Developer(+1)

Thank you for the feedback. I love "INSIDE" so any comparison with it makes me happy.

Submitted(+1)

Greetings!

I really liked this game! it's got quite an interesting mechanic. I love the aestethic, the rain, the effects! I got a few gripes just:

-Those jaw-worm things take WAY too long to come back, specially in the levels that have them going through all the stage. It can get quite frustrating, specially if you die a couple times.

-A lil bit too much screenshake, specially at the end there, when there were too many enemies. Juuust a lil bit overboard. Still, good! Not many games here have screenshake, surpriging considering how easy it is to add, haha. Juice!

-The last level starts you right on the action, which is kinda bad for this kind of puzzly, more thoughtful game. Let us breath and check the surroundings!

That's it. Quite liked it! Hope you improve on this, it's quite awesome!

Developer(+1)

Thank you. I am glad you liked it. You are totally right about the "jaw-worm things" and the screen shake. I have actually re-tuned their parameters in my local version which I'll later upload as a post-jam version. About the last level, you are also right, I never thought about this problem since I am the level designer so I knew the whole level layout beforehand. I will add this to my post-jam fixes. Thanks a lot for the elaborate feedback.

Brilliant idea!The polish is good...The overall concept and execution is neat and amazing!One of the best games I played in this jam!

Developer

Thank you. I am glad you liked it.

This was a seriously stellar experience. The body swapping felt cool and made enemies double as puzzle pieces. Your last level perfectly executed on the idea of having to kill enemies in a certain order to properly progress. The game feel was fantastic, each enemy moved in its own way but the unified control scheme/physics served as a great connective thread. If I could change one thing, I would actually just tone down the juice just a tiny bit, maybe a little less screen shake and lower volume SFX with the deaths. But that's minor compared to how phenomenal this was. 10/10, excellent work and thanks for a fun time :)

Developer(+1)

Thank you. I am glad you liked it. And you are totally right, about the juice, I went overboard this time. I toned down the screen shake in my local version and will hopefully add an SFX volume option before uploading the post jam version.

Platforming that feels great with a really unique core mechanic. Taking over different move styles and platforming elements one at a time is a really fun type of puzzle.

Developer

Thank you.

This is a really creative take on the theme, nice work!
The puzzle aspect to clearing the stages was an interesting idea, and works well~

Developer

Thank you.
