Love seeing the way you handled the building concept as opposed to Blooey's Path, both games feel very unique with a similar idea. Some of those levels made me struggle (but mostly because I am stubborn and need to get the gem in each level lol).

I feel like the game loosely fits the theme and would've liked some sfx or music but I can understand getting that all together in a short time can be hard. I like how simple the mechanics are and how easy it is to get into each level, and I enjoy the ability to have certain spots effect how the block moves like the rotation spots. It felt rewarding learning that you can rotate blocks and then move them out of the rotation spot to keep them rotated afterwards, love that mechanic a lot. Nice job!

Thanks for all the kind words <3. I got started on the game pretty late into the game jam (4 days in I think) so a lot of stuff was rushed and I never got around to any audio. I loved seeing players find different ways to complete the levels and find the gems and I tried my best to let the player figure out stuff on their own so they would experiment and try different things.

Hey! Nice game,  Building bode on a certain spot is a great idea! Sometimes it's easy to stuck on a level,  Is it by design and I should restart it?  The design is cool! I like the art.

Developer

Thanks so much for playing <3. Some of the levels have areas that you can get stuck in and will require you to restart to complete them, which is intentional.

Cool mechanic and fun mix of puzzle and skill. Would be great with some audio, and if the jump was slightly less floaty, but overall, a solid entry, well done!

Developer

Thanks a lot <3. I spent very little time on the character controller, it definitely could use some revamping.

Quite a solid little game. Would be great to have some audio tho. The mechanics all seemed to work properly which is awesome for a game jam!

Thanks <3, ran out of time to get any audio done unfortunately.

Really great game design and really well executed! I wanted to create something similar, but I didn't know how to, but good thing I didn't because you executed it to pretty much perfection. One thing I wish it had was some audio or sfx, it really would've added the final pop it needed to really put it over the edge. But the gameplay was smooth, the idea was executed really well, and it fits the theme nicely so well done!

Thanks alot <3. I started working on the game like 4 days into the jam so it was a bit rushed and I didn't have time to do any audio unfortunately.

Nice one! We used a similar concept in our game where you can build your level with building blocks. It could've done with some simple audio. Good job! Very well made game

Developer(+1)

Thanks <3. I went and played your game and its awesome! I wish I had more experience to make a more complete product. And I started working on my game pretty late into the jam so there wasn't much time to get everything I wanted in.

Don't get too bogged down by it! You've done a great job working alone on it. We were a team of 4 - programmer, artist, sound designer and composer - hence we got a lot done. But even our game is not perfect and there are many things we wanted to add which we couldn't. Try teaming up with people in your next jam and good luck moving forward!

It's quite a good game. I found the character a bit heavy when he move. But the concept is good and levels are nice. It's a bit challenging if you want to get the diamond. Good job.

Developer

Thanks a ton. I started a bit late into the jam so a lot of things were rushed, but I'm glad you were still able to enjoy it <3
