Really cool visual effects. What do you use to achieve the glows? Emissive textures with a lot of bloom?

Developer

Yes, Precisely. It is a fast way to make it and is less intense on the computer. I was also planning on making in into a mobile game after the jam is done so it would be able to run well with less changes.

Good game! I was going to rage quit in some points hahaha! Good job!

Developer(+1)

Thanks! The game is meant to be a partial rage game! Glad you stuck with it!

Nice colors. I found the game pretty hard. No matter how hard I tried I couldn't really get a handle on the physics. Got stuck on the first level with two buttons.

Developer

I was going for more the rage game type vibe. Since there are not that many levels I wanted to make sure the player had some challenges. Thanks for playing though!

Like the simple yet good visuals. I didn't understand that both shapes were connected but thats my bad, maybe if you can visualize that connection by line would be better.  After realizing that they are connected, I was able to understand what needs to be done and just practice executing it which was really fun. I played twice, first time it took me about 5:30 seconds and second time it took me 3:16 seconds. Overall, great idea and execution.

I tried messing with several ideas of connecting them but adding a line made them feel like they should be ridged and a stretchy line as if they should be springy. I didn't have the time to think of any other solutions though. I will mess around with some more in the post jam version.

Nice game.

1, The second level is just too hard.

2, There should be a sound when the character jumps and when you win a level.

Besides those, nice game.

I would be very happy if you would play my game.

Developer

I play tested a lot and didn't notice how difficult the 2nd level was, that was the main complaint from people who play the game. As for sound effects I was gonna make them but I didn't have the time. They will be added in the post jam version along with plenty of new levels and some balance tweaks!

As simple the idea as hard the second level. Eventually I made it and was pretty proud of myself. Little did I know about the next level. :D

Developer

Yeah the second level is pretty hard and that's on me. I should have found more people to play test it before finalizing it. :D

I like the idea but i couldnt get past the second level!

Developer

I was thinking last moment of making some easier levels but I increased the jump power to make it easier. In the next version I will try to make more simple levels at the start.

Its a nice concept :) And sometimes really challenging ...

Yeah it is on the verge of a rage game, I was going for that since I am planning on modifying and turning it into a mobile game as well.
