Looks sounds really great. The gameplay is simple, but works well. Nice job! :)

I loved everything of this game.  But I missed a bit more mechanics. Still this rates pretty high because of all the other effort.

Awesome sound. Awesome graphics, color choice/pallet, animation. The jump effect felt a little "sharp" and I would have been fun to have more usages of the duck functionality.

Developer

Thanks for your feedback!  :D

Agree that the colors and music are fantastic! Feels that the jump sound effect is too strong and detracts from the effort on the bgm though.

Developer

That's a good point! If I ever do a post-jam build i'll probably tone down the jump sounds! Thanks a bunch!

Excellent sprite design and music! It was a little unclear as to whether the difficulty was ramping up (maybe I didn't get far enough in), but overall it was fun!

Developer

Thanks so much for your thoughts! :D

Definitely a fun game to play. Graphics are wonderful. Nice choice of color palette. The best quality for me is the music (cool melody) going faster along with the run. That makes the experience more exciting.

I really like the color palette used =D Sometimes we can't distinguish the elements we need to dodge because we have the impression that it's part of the scenery :o The character's animation is well done. It's a very nice little game ^^

By the way, I made a little video that brings together some of the LOWREZJAM games to show a little glimpse of them and you're in it :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qr0jzLB4-QE

Aw wow that's super nice of you to include us! Thanks a bunch! :D

Great game! Enjoyed this one. Great graphic style that really suits the resolution. I'd love to see more variation in the environment/hazards, a quicker difficulty ramp and you could add in some other pickups for other effects. Great entry!

Developer

Thanks so much for your feedback! :D There was definitely plans for other elements but unfortunately time just got away from me this year!

As a multi year lowrez participant I was very excited to see Bruce back in action again! ;)  Graphics and animation are very clean and polished.  Nice job guys!

Developer

Yesss! I'm glad Bruce has left his mark! Lowrezjam is definitely something I want to continue doing so expect more Bruce Bee in the future! <3

Great graphics!  I liked the chosen color palette quite a lot.  I would try to make the crouching pose a bit lower (it looks a bit to similar to the running pose).  

Difficulty ramp is a bit too slow and game play is a pretty standard endless runner.  I would try and find a mechanic that hasn't been tried in an endless runner before.

 Music composition is also great but I was expecting something a bit more fitting (like chiptunes).

Developer

Thanks for your feedback! :D

Nice simple game, love Bruce's animations and the happy music.

No real complaints. Wouldn't really change anything but for some reason I thought ducking also made me go faster.

Developer

Thank you so much! I thiiiink the reason it looks that way is that the animation might be a couple less frames than the regular run! Appreciate your feedback!

Nice one

Developer

Thank you! <3

Really nice graphics and good music! I love the colors and the overall look of the game! I found the jumping physics a little weird though, but it didn't affect the gameplay much.

Developer

thanks so much for your feedback! <3

Well done endless runner with nice graphics :-)

The only thing to improve would be the attack in the ADSR jump animation: I think that a more gradual jump would feel more natural.

Developer

Thanks for your thoughts! :D

Thoughts from playing:

  • Nice fancy startup sequence and title screen animation.
  • Art style looks great. Nice consistent palette and obstacles and objects all read well.
  • Simple and fun gameplay. Could easily see wasting a decent amount of time playing this.
Developer

Ahh so nice! Thank you so much! <3
