Cute game! I included it in my compilation video series of the Low Rez Jam games, if you would like to take a look :)

That was superb. Played it all the way to the end!

There was some jank in the combat (I'd swear I hit them, but I got hit instead), but that was ok.

It's a shame there was no audio, but that was ok too.

There were a few cheap enemy placements, and I'll hate those deku looking bastards as long as I live

But I LOVED the non square pixels, that was awesome. Loved the art all together, what a lovely palette.

I loved the level design: you did a lot with the mechanics at play.

I'm super impressed by the amount of stuff you got done. Cutscenes, overworld and dungeons? Class act!

Great work all together; looks like the investment you made into pixelbox paid off :) Job well done!

Pretty Nice, love the graphics and the colours, well done

Awesome game, looks amazing! You should have asked for help in the sound department if you needed. There's a lot of people that would have given you sweet matching audio tracks and SFX for the game. Solid game!

The art style and design of the game is really great but man, playing in silence is brutal. My mind kept trying to create audio to fill the void but it's just not the same. The progression was good as well, considering you get a double jump as your first ability, there isn't much else that the game opens up so completing it wasn't a big time investment.

Movement felt slippery and overly sensitive and jumping was a tad awkward but nothing a player can't adjust to. The final boss fight was solid and brought back some Kirby memories. Overall, I really enjoyed it.

Super good game! Nice cutscenes, great gameplay, good controls, very nice artwork! Amazing! It needs sounds and music and it'll be perfect!

This game is incredible! The art and the gameplay is amazing: the colors, the controls... don't ever touch in any of those! It's a shame that there are no sounds or music in this one, as others have mentioned, but a great entry nonetheless! Congratulations!

Nice job!

I liked the fun cutscenes and the metroidvania-like gameplay. It's a pity that there's no music or sounds. Controls are too sensitive to my opinion. When I slightly press the arrow key I expect my character to move only few pixels forward, not the half of tile. Shooting enemies are the big pain in the arse. They start to shoot at you while they are out of view. Would be better if they start shooting when you can see them. And also there is a bug in the boss room. There is a invincible door through which you can leave accidentally during the boss fight. And of course you'll have to start it all over after that.

So what can I say in conclusion? This is a not bad game and sure it has the big potential, but it needs a lot of polishing. Anyway it was fun to play. Keep up the good work!

Nice entry. In my opinion you should use less saturated backgrounds for this game, especially in forest zones. And oh the cherry, it should give some bonus points :D

Submitted

Wow this game is really good! It has a lot of content and the visuals are very nice. It would be really really cool with sound effects and music. I wish the character would be able to make smaller movements. Other than that, great job!

Submitted

Nice colors and decent gameplay, but I miss music and sound fx.

Submitted

Genius story! Love it - very quirky! Great graphics, sound would really help. Couldn't double jump for some reason.

Submitted

Oh my god. It's Monster Boy in Atari World! You should put audio in this. Great game with a good personality.

Submitted

Lacking audio and your character drops like a brick when you let go of up. And using the spacebar makes it unable to move. But, it's a really long and fun game! ^^;

Submitted

Very cool! Loved the posters in Bob's room lol. And the... onion? enemies.

Really charming sprite work, and fun little levels to hop around in. I got to the wind fairy! Maybe some of the issues with getting hit by off-screen enemies could be helped by having a larger visible area ahead of where the player's walking?

Submitted

Very cute and well executed, congrats! Is there no sound at all, or is my computer misbehaving?

Submitted

very neat entry :)

thanks for this
