This game is cool! but maybe the camera should be more in front of the player.


Not easy? That second level took me like 10 tries! Although a little bit short, it was quite a challenge, those precise, 1-tile jumps mixed with high speed / gravity of the robot made me struggle a little! And that short intro-story made me chuckle, what a charming theme explanation!

Another thing, did you made the engine all by yourself? If that's true, I'm really impressed

Yep, everything was built from scratch.

Unfortunately, developing the "Microbot engine" took so much time that I had to make the game itself a lot shorter than I originally intended.


Yea, creating your own engine is not an easy nor quick task, I also tried that one time, but it wasn't made for a jam, just for myself. It took me a few months to get everything in place (I used c++ and sdl for graphics). 

Anyway, too bad jams doesn't let us vote for other criteria, but you have a big thumbs up for the effort c:


Yay! Thx


I beat the game! lose 3 times, but it is easy. 


Yeah, perhaps it isn't that hard, but still a small "gamers' snack", right? =)
