really cool and fun game the player is a bit hard to control but i like the art style and the audio good job!

Developer

I guess you mean the wall jump is a bit tight I guess right? 

Im fixing that issue after the rating period so I would recommend coming bach to this one as soon as the new build goes online. 

Thx for playing and the comment

Amazing game for a game jam ! The art really amazed me, the way you create such a universe with so little amount of colors. I found it very hard (as mentioned), maybe it gets too hard too fast. The level design teaches us quite good, except for the walljump that I found the hardest to control.

Good job, never stop !

Developer(+1)

Yeah a lot of people complained about the wall jump and I get why. I will release a post jam version after the rating period where you will get some extra frames to make it easier. 

thank you for commenting :)

Awesome game! I'm a big fan of Super meat boy and it reminds me so much! Maybe the color palette is too aggressive to the eye.

Developer

Yeah the colors are aggressive but I think it fits the game. Thank you for playing :)

I like it overall. The gameplay is complex but doesn't really want to make you rage. I can't say anything about the audio though, I didn't play with sound.  The fact that we pay as a blood lump does weird me out a bit. 8/10

Developer

thank you for leaving a comment and Im glad you enjoyed it.

Great game, loved the sound effects and controls. Very simple, although at times, some of the text was hard to read. Otherwise, great game overall!

Developer

thank you for playing, glad you enjoyed it

Really stunning animations and the controls are perfect! Everything that has to do with the playable blood lump is amazing, really great job! The only thing that I didn't enjoy as much as the rest of the game was the music. I loved the sound effects, but I wish there was a mute music button or music volume slider. Great job!

Developer

there was a volume slider when you pres esc 

but thanks for the comment

Realy good game. You could have improve the tutorial part with some drawings in the white background at some points of your levels. But your level design is good in tutoring. Well done it's a good game. i think i will come back to it later to finish it. And art style is awesome.

Developer

glad you liked it :) 

and thanks for your comment

Love this! One of the best one's I have played! The slow introduction of new mechanics through gameplay rather than word screens, the sound design and music, and the flow of gameplay was great! I am terrible at platforms and thus never finished the game, but man feels like a fully fledged game! Really great job for just 7 days of work!

Developer

Thank you for the comment. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Really nice job and great polish on your game! Probably one of the best polished games I've seen so far. The only problem I had which is probably specific to me was that the controls were hard to master at the beginning which made it frustrating in the beginning, but once I got better it got easier and more fun. Other than that there is really nothing you should change, maybe just an eerie music theme song to play? But, really really nice job!

Developer(+1)

Hard to learn. Hard to master. 

Yup the controls can be a bit "unique" in the beginning that's true.

and isn't the theme song eerie enough already ? 

Submitted(+1)

Oh yah for sure.... When I first wrote my comment I wasn't good enough to get to the theme song... now that I am there after getting good at the skills, don't change a thing!

Wow! I love the visuals and the weird atmosphere. It is very hard I may have spent an hour playing it as a not too skilled person, but at no point did I want to give up. The blood animation/particles looks so sweet and fluid and I loved the retro-ish backgrounds (for some reason it reminds me of some old flash games). Super unique, I absolutely loved it!

Developer(+1)

an hour is completely ok. my brother and my cousin tested the game and both took about an hour :)

I'm glad you enjoyed it

Submitted

hmm it would actually be a great game to speedrun thinking about it

Developer(+1)

DO IT

Submitted(+1)

Cool game. Altough I found the controls to be a bit hard to control (hah). I really like the esthetics of the game and the idea is very unique and interesting.

Developer

thank you :)

Submitted(+2)

WOW the visuals are mind blowing! The game reminds me of an Edmund McMillen platformer. I feel like the blood platform mechanic kind of slows down the gameplay,  and the other movement mecanics and juice feel the best in the fast-pace parts! Great work

Developer(+1)

the shooting platforms does not necessarily slow it down. there are a few mechanics to avoid standing still to shoot a platform, like that you can instantly ground pound after a jump and at the same time as landing shoot a platform , or that you can shoot at the same time as touching a bubble to jump further. This also allows you to do high jumps on bubbles at the same time. And some gaps can even be crossed without platforms at all. Oh aand you can do a lot of jumps with just a ground pound. 

sorry I did go on for so long but the game is just insanely fast when you master it. My PB is 1 minute and 41 seconds btw :)

but thank you for writing a comment, always appreciated

Submitted(+1)

you are totally right! I imagine at a high level it lets you do some awesome stuff. I'm was playing at médium/low level so I was constantly stoping to set up the plataform jump. 

Saw that you groundpound higher in plataforms maybe thats the key. Will tell you!

Submitted(+2)

Cool game! I got to a point where my blob of blood wouldn't re-grow and I couldn't get the platform back and got stuck and imo the controls were a bit hard to get the hang off. With that said this game is really cool! Very creative idea, great work! :D

Developer(+1)

You are the second person who cant figure out that part. I may have to write a tutorial on the itch page. 

thank you for your comment tho :)

Amazing game! Really polished and juicy gameplay. The shooting a block mechanic was a little unclear until I entered the cave. The last screen I feel could have been a little bit less tight in terms of the death wall chasing you, and the wall jumps could have been more lenient but the movement was super smooth otherwise. 

After a while though all I could hear in the music was "eggy over and over . . .


Keep making games!

Developer

yeah a lot of stuff in this game is very precise but I wanted to try some different stuff with the movement and just make something really difficult for a change. And after you get at a point where you are really comfortable with the movement, it flows like butter. I think that not many people will get to that point, most wont even finish it im sure , but for the few that persevere this could be an awesome game to speedrun.

eggy eggy eggy ...

I liked the part in the introduction, where the blood came. The blood effect of the player is really cool.

I didnt get very far, because its a little bit too hard for me. I came to the part were the skin came. I couldn't recharge my shoot on the skin, i dont know if this is a feature or a bug

Developer(+1)

its a feature so I could craft moments where you don't have access to blood at specific places

Submitted(+2)

Great game! The platforming is challenging and the wall jumps and bounces were very finicky and for me hard to get right. The music fit very well, but for me the sound effects didn't quite fit the theme, and were a bit repetitive/loud. It looks great and has a great atmosphere!

Developer

It was actually my first time making sound effects and I can see that they are a bit repetitive. I tried to avoid this with randomizing the pitch. And there is also a volume slider when you press ESC ( I know its a bit annoying with full screen and all that but I didn't think about that early enough, sorry)
