Fun once I got used to the controls! I think it might have been more intuitive to introduce one of the side paths before the opposite path, especially with the way the controls were explained. My thought process went from the first level "The controls listed up and down as teleport, but they don't seem to do anything" to the second "Teleport moves me to the other track, but when I try to move there it teleports me back. Is this a bug?" and it wasn't until the third level that I realized it was tube controls with a "skip 180 degrees" option. Having bottom+right or left for level 2 would have made that smoother. I even think that just forcing you to use teleport for the levels with only two opposite lanes would have helped, if three of the directions didn't end up all behaving as teleport I would have been more likely to try the 4th direction and realize controls were just inverted.

Developer

Wow, that's a lot of feedback and nicely detailed too!
I agree with all the points you made :)
It took me a while just to get the rotating/teleporting working so I came up with the simplest controls I could.
With a bit more time, I probably would have made it the way you described

This is super polished! The control scheme was not what I was expecting at all, but once I realized you were basically rotating around a tube instead of flipping between sides it all clicked. This is really addicting.

Developer

Thanks a lot for your feedback :)

Really fun! I'm impressed you managed to make both a solid level mode and a procedural mode.

Pun are an absolutely a-miz-ing touch!

Developer

Thanks, dude! Glad you liked it

Rated! A fun game with a well thought out set of graphics and GUI! Out of many games, this one feels more complete to me, a 4.5-5 star effort, amazing job! 

Developer

That was quick, thanks a lot :)

An interesting Temple-Run style game.  Took me a bit to get used to the controlls once the multiple lanes started appearing.  Great work incorporating an endless mode and a rating system for the amount of coins gathered!  Great work overall!  :D

Developer

Thanks man, means a lot :)

Had fun playing, not usually a runner fan but I enjoyed this. Everything feels simple but polished from the use of assets to the gameplay itself. It's also nicely balanced, this is probably the most pleasant difficulty curve I've experienced all jam.

My only gripe would be the counter-intuitive controls, I kept on teleporting and wondering why moving to the side would send me back where I started, thinking that you couldn't move after teleporting, and only realized that left/right was to rotate clockwise/counterclockwise when I accidentally walked off the side and ended up on the roof.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! I understand that the controls can take time to get used to so I had hoped that the earlier levels would help.
I tried to come up with the simplest controls for the game. If you have any suggestions, let me know :)

The controls themselves were fine once I got used to them, it's just that there's no explanation that you can walk off the sides and since you can teleport to the opposite edge, there's no reason to actually try it until you get to the levels with all four characters, or do it by accident beforehand.

the game was already in my playing list for a while now XD. I don't know why I kept putting it off. Welp, here it is then!

Pretty cool! The controls were kind of hard to understand but I liked the aesthetic and music.

Developer

Thanks, dude :)

Damn another unique game!

played on last level, but kept losing.
Then i got "i believe in you" as a message.
the following run i got trough the end. :)

very original idea my guy. love how "memey" this also is.

Good work!

Developer

Thank you very much! And well done for pushing through :)

Good fun! Music+sound are great, very simple and satisfying aesthetic all around. I didn't realize you could hop to the opposite site until the end though (I guess I should read the controls XD). Well done!

Developer

Teleporting isn't required to complete the game. It's a difficult skill to learn but once you've mastered it, the levels become so much easier

Anyway, thanks for playing :)

Like others have said, the controls took some time to get used to (I kept teleporting when I actually wanted to move the same character haha) but after a while I got used to the controls and even managed to finish the game (but I didn't score very well because I often opted to just stay somewhere safe instead of risk getting the coins lol)

Developer(+1)

Glad you managed to finish it :)

I realised most people would avoid risks in the survival mode so I made it a requirement to collect every coin that comes their way

Great Concept

It was somewhat confusing to control the character at the beginning

Developer

Thanks! Hopefully the earlier levels helped to make the controls easier :)

It took me little bit of time to get used to the controls but then it was funny to play. Nice runner game. Good work! :)

Developer

Cheers! :D

I like the twist on the infinite runner for this game. I didn't realize what was in store for me until the second level. It was weird getting used to the controls at first, but I caught on and was able to have a lot of fun with this.

Developer(+1)

Hopefully it didn't come as too much of a shock to you :D

Thanks for checking it out :)
