Looks amazing! Controls well, there's nothing I would add that hasn't already been mentioned in other comments.

Good looking and feels nice to play. Of course like others have said it's missing score or levels (basically an indicator of progress).

Nice entry!

Developer (1 edit)

Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed!

I intended to add a score counter in but couldn't due to time constraints. (I didn't have the whole 2 days free)

good concept maybe you could make it ramp up in difficulty as time goes on!

Developer

Thank you!

I intend to add intensty ramping after the jam ends.

I'm a sucker for unlit toy-like games, nicely done!

Thank you! I'm glad I went with a unlit look. (It was my teammate's idea)

Really cool game! Loved the idea behind it, I think it could benefit from a score counter and sometimes getting stuck against a wall messed up jumping :)

Clever! I see a bunch of endless runner "can't stop running" games, but I like the twist you put on it. Nice job!

Loved the art and the tension from not ever stopping! I missed some score marker or some goal to go to though. Good job!

The game looks great and the robot feels really responsive. It still needs some kind of goal though, either a score like number of tiles traveresed or a finish. Having different tiles and have them start popping up as you progress in the game would make the game more interesting.

great job! The game has a simple mechanic but very well done! congratulations to the devs for the result!

Love the graphics and the colours! I think a highscore system would've been great but it's still a lot of fun. I don't know if it's intentional but when you're standing right next to a platform and are pressing jump multiple times you get catapulted into the air, it's kinda fun but it also seems to mess up the camera a bit.

Thank you for playing!

I wanted to implement the highscore system but then I ran out of time. I would've realized it sooner if I had playtested more. 

I noticed the platform glitch, but have no idea how to fix it effectively. Maybe I should've just had a game over state when you get stuck on the big platforms. 

Thanks for bringing the camera glitch to my attention. Never had it happen to me but I guess it happens because the robot escapes the collider. (camera tracks the collider)

I love this game! It was very fun, well done, and easy to understand.

Developer

Thank you!

I'm glad I went with this idea rather than my other complex ones.

Thank you for the kind words!

Enjoyed this quite a bit. If you work on it more, I would love to see a counter of blocks and possibly some other types of platforms to interact with.

Developer

Thank you!

Yes, I tried making a highscore mechanic but sadly it was past the deadline.

Very interesting mechanic! Would love to see how many squares I've passed through at the final screen (or even inside the gameplay)
