Super fun game! Great music and graphics too! I included it in my LowRezJam compilation, if you’d like to take a look :)

Developer

Thank you! :D

Gorgeous pixel-art! The game overall is very well done. Congrats : )

Awesome, hats off!

Fabulous graphics, sound, and level design. I did spot some split pixels, but otherwise this is a 100% perfect little jam game. I can't wait until the full version comes out on GBA. :P

Beautiful game, possibly the best looking of all the games in the jam (that I've seen so far at least). great music as well! Good effort in using pickups to telegraph level design in a small view. Only critiques: Enemies were hard to handle without trail and error, and camera can be pretty disorientating when changing sides.  

Developer

Thank you!

The graphics and music are super good. I really like all the visual details such as the main character's idle animation. The controls also feel very smooth (though the run button seems unnecessary). Unfortunately, the view is quite small and makes the game rely a bit too much on trial and error. However, I do like how the ghosts have a sound cue that helps to mitigate this somewhat. I'm also not sure what the coins do.

Developer

Thanks! This was submitted to the lowrezjam which is why the viewport is so small, 64 x 64. We're working on improved version with a much larger, normal viewport! We ran out of time to submit the game to the jam before we could implement a working score and things to do with the score from the coins.

I wasn't expecting less from you! Well done, keep up with the good work!

Go take a look at my game if you have the time.

Cheers.

This is SO good - the graphics and music are fantastic.
I could've done with some checkpoints, as I'm clearly crap
(perhaps they were there and I didn't get far enough)
Anyways, congrats and all the best! :D

Thank you! We ran out of time  before we could create checkpoint logic, among other things we wanted to add. We were cutting it pretty close, I made all the levels the morning of the submission cutoff date.

Really great art and SFX. It was very hard predicting the enemies though.

Developer(+1)

Thanks, yeah the enemies were tough to implement well because the art came out a little too big for the jam's restrictions. We're going to post an update as a separate upload with some new levels and content soon, also without the restricting 64 x 64 viewport. The enemies aren't as much of a problem when you can actually  see them coming! haha

Aww rats.

Itch tells me that Super Dead Mall isn't available on Windows. Could you fix that? I'm... dying to play it.

Developer

We're going to upload a windows and mac version within the next few days!
