I loved it, the clouds, the wavy grass, the difficulty scaling, the controls. You could reorder the boss fights I found the bugs too easy. Overall really excellent work!

Hey, we are from 'Running John' team. Have played yours and really amazed by how polished the art is. The overall gameplay is also fun. More detail feedback on your google form :D

I really liked the levels and boss fights. The animations were well done and the controls were solid. My only complaint would be how you just get instantly deleted if you touch the boss or any monster. There doesn't seem to be an invincibility period. But that could just be cuz I got wiped by the bug dude a couple times so I'm salty haha. Great job!

This was a very interesting platformer game, The visuals, animation, controls made it even better. The only thing thats not as amazing is the music. I wish the music was different for the boss level but the sound effects boosted the gameplay. Good job, I enjoyed it though!

Developer

Thank you playing!  I will update the music once I find a composer.  My music skills are almost 0 haha.  I made the music in a simple loop program~

Wow, amazing platformer, and quite the challenging one. I really had a great time playing it, and I really think you did a great job working on the theme and mechanics.  Personally, I loved your level design, and boss fights. Great job. Really. Great job.

Developer

I'm glad you enjoyed it!  I hope to expand on this game and make even longer levels and harder bosses~

Hey I'm D3nX from DreamVeloper Team ! I just almost finished your game a couple of minuts ago and I can say it's really really good ! The gameplay is well designed, and the level too ! And the variety of monsters, boss and patherns make the game very complete, the polish make the thing even more cool ! The only thing that is less good is the musics, it's very repetitive... Otherwise you did an awesome work, good job !

Thanks for checking it out!  I will change the music in the future, I made it and have no music skills haha.  It is just a silly beat on a short loop~

very good game, with some more polish it could become something big.

Developer

Thanks a bunch! I learned a lot from this game!  I used to prefer top down shooters, but now i think i prefer platformer shooters.

Submitted

i think it's more interesting to have a character that is affected by gravity, rather than moving in 4 directions

I love how everything bobbed around to the music, a very cute effect! Great job with the length too, the number of bosses and levels was very surprising!

Thank you!  It was lucky timing~ I just animated them to look like the wind was blowing, then when I made a song they happened to sway with it haha.  I saw your cool game for Brackeys jam video too!
