Nice mechanic, but a bit hard to jump

Submitted(+1)

I liked the game, was fun to play since it challenged me to be quicker, the jumping was a bit difficult at start but I got the hang of it later on. Nice entry!

Developer

thanks for the feedback and for playing :)

Its alright. I liked the ember effects. The sound effects were also pretty good. I found the controls to be quite finicky, like it was hard to determine how high or far you were going to jump and the player seemed to start running before they hit the ground which was confusing and the shooting didnt seem to work well for me, (not sure if i was doing it wrong). Nice use of the theme as well. Overall i though it was pretty nice.

Good game.

Gameplay is nice, but it's a bit hard to jump precisely. 

Also some music will be nice.

But in overall i like idea of rising lava in platformer.

Good job!

The music for a solo dev like me it's a nightmare. The sfx is the minimum. BTW thanks for playing and for the feedback!

You can find music on the internet that fits your game (and add credits of music author if music license require this)

Very enjoyable but I also didn't get how the shoot button works.  And god damn that last jump on level 3 is difficult!!! 

Developer

In webgl the shooting not work idk why. 

Yeah the last jump is very hard 😅.

Thanks for playing!

Addicting the same way that something like Jump King is. Does a great job of balancing frustration (in a good sense) and feeling fair.

The shoot button didn’t always seem to work for me, unless I’m misunderstanding the mechanic. I didn’t love the layout of the controls, either; A and D have a natural “left” and “right” feeling to them that gets upended here. Maybe something like X and Z would have worked better?

Space is definitely the right button to use for jumping, though, and it felt great.

Developer

Thanks for playing and for the feedback, in the webgl version the shooting system is KO, idk why.

The command at the start was "ASD" forgot to change the "D" 'cause the shooting mechanic is not well implemented.

Nice game! the jump is a bit odd though, but nice work overall.

Developer

Thanks for playing

I like it! I completed first level in 32 seconds using some crazy bug that launches you really high.

Developer

Oh you beat my record!

Thanks for playing

Simple game that's quite frustrating. Personally, I don't use the other mechanics much other than jump. I think this concept would be better if it's just a jump puzzler but you can change the direction where you go.  

Close enough.

Developer

Yeah, the main mechanic is the jump, i don't have enough time to focus on shooting and more level design.

Thanks for playing.

I like the way you handled the controls, having the jump be in different parts to control where you jump is a nice idea! Artstyle is nice too, good work :))

Thank you.

That was fun. At first I thought you could not jump through the bottom of the platforms because I crashed into the side of one. Made it much easier once I saw that you can actually jump through the platforms on top.

Developer

I want that the player have a little of difficulty when jump so the side of the platform are normal wall.

Thanks for playing.

I don't know how to play the game, i can't even jump up because i can't move in the air...i think you can remove the lava, the game is hard enough without it xD. 

I hope the feedback helped you a bit, and it would be nice if you could check out our submission too, thank you! :)

Developer

The game is quite simole, with "A" you can move in the direction the player is facing (only if the player is touching the ground). With "Space" appear an arrow that move changing the direction, if you press "Space" again when the arrow is displayed you can jump in the direction of the arrow.

The "D" is for shooting (this functionality is not well implemented)

If you want to give a second chance here it is. :) thanks for playing.
