Fun game! I included it in my LowRezJam compilation, if you’d like to take a look :)

Crazy fun game! Brings back a warming nostalgia to Ski Free but with a fantastic soundtrack :)

My one improvement would be to balance the audio. Your bgm was great but it kept getting drowned out by the "Whee!" (which was cute btw)

Developer(+1)

Thanks. Glad you liked the game :) I shall revisit the audio - the Whee sound was added at the last minute so I'll tweak the volume there in the next update.

This is really nice!! Great job on the graphics, they look amazing! I couldn't make it to the bottom of the hill, but I still had a great time with this!

Developer

And there's me thinking people would find it too easy! :)

I have an update planned that's a bit more forgiving, and adds more sign posts so you don't have to guess so much. Just waiting for voting to end before I publish it.

WEEEEE!!! Really fun game, the skiing physics feel good and the pace of the game works well within the jam's tiny viewport limits, great job!

Developer

Awesome - thanks! :)

great polish - but i'm also going to vote for a better restart system :)

Developer

He hee - space to restart is coming in the next update! :)

Definitely one of the most polished entries I've played so far.

I also vouch for the keyboard control to restart.. cursing and mashing return before realising I had to use the mouse was slightly embarrassing!

Developer

apologies - it will be fixed the next time I update it.

Funny, challenging little game. I especially liked the sound effects!

Weeeeeeeeeee!

Weeeee! Great artwork. Had fun playing this one...

Really great game! Possibly best graphics direction of all the entries. Twitter integration was a great touch too. Tough, but seems fair. I also second simplifying the restart/adding a button press to the menu so you don't have to reach for the mouse between each attempt. Otherwise, well done!

I can only repeat other people - the game is great! And yes, restarting the game with a keyboard would help someone as lazy as me. 



Weeeeeeee!

Very challenging, but very enjoyable! The graphics are very cute and fit together perfectly. The skiing feels great, responds well. Really carving that snow!

The only small bit of feedback I have is having to go back to the frontpiece and click to try again, it's a slighty flow breaker. I'd rather just hit the down arrow to go back to the top of the mountain without going back to the menu. It's a very small issue but it would make it much more compulsive.

All in all this is a really fantastic little entry!

Developer

Thanks  - you're not the first person to mention switching to mouse to play again. I'll see if I can add a keyboard based method for restarting.

Interesting, did you try a version where you can't turn in the air?

Developer

Hey - thanks :)

Unless I've broken something you can't turn in the air in this version. Did you mean can turn in the air? I did have it like that originally. I might switch it back so it's a hybrid, so you can only turn a little in the air.

Hah, can't replicate now, my bad, it seemed to me that it was possible.

Nice funny game but I am so bad in those kind of challenges.
The character is really cure and when going on the "yellow pond", well it is fun to know what it is :-D

Well done! :-)

Developer(+1)

:) Thanks a lot - it is a bit difficult because it's such a short screen size. Perhaps a larger screen would make it easier for you to play. Glad you liked it otherwise though.

Yes, this is the jam challenge but also what makes it so interesting. For our game, 64x64 ill-fater, we have used 8x8 pixels for the characters to have enough movement for a beat 'em up game. It is still enjoyable in the end :-)


Your character anyway is very cute. It wouldn't be probably the same making it much smaller.

This was great!!! Loved it when i hit the weeeeeeee!!

Developer

:D Thanks!

This was solid. The skiing physics felt really good and I kept wanting to try again to get further which is always a good sign.

Developer

Awesome - thanks for the feedback Kevin! :)

Great game, the art is very good, I loved the song you used in the game, the gameplay is very good, sometimes is very fast(as it should =p) and it is pretty hard too, which is great beacuse I had to play it so many times in order to get better =p 

I would love to see more levels. Good job, very fun game !

Developer(+1)

Hi there - thanks for the kind words! :)

If people continue to like it then more levels is definitely something I am considering. I think I would also make it a little larger so you have more time to react which should help make it a little less difficult.
