Fun concept for a game! The art was fun and the game play was  interesting. 

If you keep building I suggest some form of level timer to encourage people to memorize the levels and attempt to speed run them by pre-setting things that need to be moved and such. 

This seems like a really solid foundation for a fun game. I hope you keep building on it. Best of luck on your future game dev!

Developer

Thank you! I really appreciate the feedback! 😄

The art for this game is so cute. I wish it didn't freeze in the second level and the level selector on the main menu worked. I think restarting at the beginning of the level could get tedious if the levels get too long, so exercise caution with that. Aside from that, well done :)

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! I'll take note of that next time. Really appreciate you playing my game!

Art: 10/10

Music: 10/10

Beyond the second level glitching, good job! This game was fun and it hit all my pretty graphics buttons. 

I think you could improve on:

  • Sound effects for the movements that we interact with. 
  • The font explaining how to play matching the art style (like the one that's on the key icons).
  • Better yet, disappearing the instructional text after x amount of time on screen.
  • A little visual texture on the background, some clouds perhaps?
  • I will say, theme wise, it didn't feel super out of control. You could probably add 1/2 elements of chaos like moving obstacles or something of the sort. You could also speed the dino lizard up.

All in all this was a  super cute game, congratulations! If you could give ours a play, I would appreciate it!

Thanks for the feedback! Yes there was many more out of control elements after that level, however the second level somehow could not work. But I'll improve on it next time. Thanks for playing!

The animation and sound really complemented each other, specially since it is stated that the audio was done during the jam, good game, great job :D

There's not really a whole lot I can say about this one. The dinosaur is cute, the hand drawn (I assume) visuals are easy on the eyes, and it's not too difficult. But I feel that a game where you don't control the character but rather the environment has been done better. And it is a bit unpolished in some places.

Developer

yep i admit its not much but i made in less than 48 hours, so im actually quite happy with my game :)

Yes i hand drew those on a phone, thanks for your feedback!

Submitted

The animation of the lizard was very cute. I only wish I could see a little more of the map to see where I was going when moving things, maybe zoomed out a little? But very fun and cute game, nice job :)

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! I would adjust the camera's deadspace a little more, really appreciate you playing tha game. :)

Submitted

loved the animation!  The lizard is really cute!  I couldn't get on the helicopter though it was never in it's original position after I started the game.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! Hmm... I'll check out the  heli. The game was working fine when i tried it. Thanks a lot for playing my game!

Submitted

Very nice, and the music is great too, but my game froze at the second level.

Developer

I'm not really sure why that happened but I'll look into it! There were few more extra mechanics after the first level.... but oh well. Thanks for playing anyways!

Same, I can't play second lvl. The Dino should be on the left to see what's upcoming. Very frustrating to discover on last second what we should do! The music IS AWESOME !

Developer (1 edit) (+1)

Thanks for the feedback! I'll fix it after the jam and you can play it if you're interested.  I accidentally put too much deadspace dor the dino so... plus the funs where the challenge is :)) Thank you for playing too!

Submitted

Nice music! The second level didn't work for me. Is a cool idea!

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! I'll check and fix the level after the game jam ends so you can play it if you are still interested.  😁

Submitted

Loving the artstyle! I'd like more checkpoints.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! I felt that the levels were pretty short so i didn't really put checkpoints. Maybe next time I'll add a few. 😁

God that little dinosaur is really cute. He just walkin along, doesn't care if he's walking on a helicopter. Life is good!

Developer

😆 yea i really like it too. Thanks for playing!

Submitted

Damn that music has me bobbing my head like crazy... love it! Also I think the concept is great.

Developer

Thanks for playing and giving feedback! :)

I really liked the idea of mapping arbitrary keys to arbitrary sceneries!
And IMO the visuals are lovely :)
