Fun concept. Thank you.

fun concept :D gj man

The platform controls could use a little touch up, but where the game really got me was when you start making balloons. Great curve ball, and super fun!

One thing that would add a lot of value is some music and additional sound effects.

Submitted

I loved the concepts of the balloons and shooting them! Also being able to zoom in and out is something you don't see often but really is useful! Well done!

Submitted

Unless there is some point high up enough that I didn't get to where you return to platforming, the beginning platforming section seems entirely pointless? Just focus on your core concept of flying up with balloons and defending yourself which is decent. Some good touches like the enemies popping your balloons but being bounced back. Balloons running out of floating power was also interesting but definitely could have been explained better.

Flying up is fun and such good friggin physics...  be proud as many have said!!!!!

Love it! The physics is really nice although the control is a little bit hard with spacebar as jump but overall it is good. You should be proud of it!

Almost 500m !
The balloons moment is super nice actually !
At start I was afraid the whole game would be only this wonky platform but then when flying everything was cool !

Submitted

The ballon idea is great, control is absolutely hilarious!

Submitted

Great and smart concept indeed. Simple game with advanced physics and a fun to play atmosphere. Keep it up!

Submitted

Super great job! You should be proud! I loved how the balloons would "run out" of helium and fall eventually. Didn't expect the bullets to have physics or drop, nice touch. I loved navigating around by spawning ballons while moving and shooting my previous ones. Overall a really nice game!

When I was first playing this game, I thought that you were simply supposed to fly as high as you can. When I realized that there were enemies coming after me, it instantly made the game way more fun. It took a surprising amount of strategy and aim to get a high altitude. Great work!

Nice that you included a shortcut to skip over the tutorial, smart move! 

I am a flying balloon fortress, but in order to defend myself, I have to shoot down my own walls. Nice concept!

This was a really unique take on the theme! The balloon mechanic was super fun to play around with, and that was a pretty creative idea as well. I love how you can cancel your flight by shooting your balloons as well.

Platforming was a tad difficult for me because the player's movement was a bit slippery and the jump's gravity makes it a little difficult to do some jumps.

Other than that though, this was a great submission. Good luck on the rest of the jam!

Game follows joined together mechanic quite nicely.  Feels quite unique.  Platforming was a bit tricky but as soon as I knew I had balloons it was a lot easier.

thanks

there's no jump buffering or coyote so the controls are kind of bad when  you're on the ground, i'll probably fix it in a post jam version

Submitted

i relly relly liked  the balloon idea!!

Submitted

I think the start of the game is  a bit  misleading also  my balloons kept going under me  which was a bit annoying.

not the only physics joint game in this jam
