Nice graphics, challenging game! I included it in my Movie Game Jam compilation video series, if you’d like to check it out! :)


This was a great interpretation of that classic scene.
Plus it was really fun to play!
I thought it was a bit too hard initially, but that's coz I forgot I could "RUN, FORREST, RUN!!!"
Great graphics and sounds.
Reminded me of a classic arcade game.
Congrats and good luck! :D


Wow, Nicely done. Game is hard but at least i managed to save two of them. And the best part is its music.


I really like how you submitted a complete game. Nice sound, music and UI! I like the movie and it ties in with the scene very well. I can't think of any feedback that is constructive right now everything comes together nicely. If I really try to nit pick I could say that running directly south is really hard compared to running east. That's really grasping for something to say though. Nice game!

Sorry I had some monitoring sound issues with my setup during the recording for your game it was great.


Thank you for the video review!!

Yes, running up and down is a bit weird, maybe it's the speed, or perhaps the camera follow is a bit off, unfortunately I didn't have much time to tweak things out :(


I kept getting ripped to shreds by the machine guns as they are bit tricky to see in the trees (maybe that's deliberate?) so I never saved Booba. Music really adds to the tension and that running animation is great. Good job.


Thanks for trying the game!

For the difficulty, unfortunately we didn't have much time to balance things out, we had a few friends test it and that's about it :( Though once you time the sprint right and know where the various marines are, it gets easier! But I realize people don't really want to spent a lot of time "learning" a jam game, especially when there are so many submissions to try!

Also thanks for praising the animations, we're proud of them!


I really enjoyed this game! I thought the difficulty was just right, I was able to find Booba on my first try, but felt challenged the whole time. The only thing that bugged me was every now and then I would get stuck on the trees. Great job on this one!


Thank you for playing the game! Yes, I'm sorry about the collisions! I even tried fixing them after the first review by completetly removing tree collisions and only leaving grass tile collision, but apparently that didn't do much :( The truth is that I should have used Unity's built-in 2d Tile system but instead opted for an outside program to make the map, so it's a hassle to rework the tile collisions every time and testing them is not very quick, as well as being quite heavy to export. Lesson learned :P


Great visual style and fun take on the movie scene.  Best of luck in the Jam!


Thank you! We're proud of how it came out visually; the guy that did all the art spent quite some time to make them!


Hey!! :)


Thanks for the review!! Yeah, the game isn't easy at first but once you get used to the sprinting mechanic it's absolutely doable :) We were making it really easy at first but where's the fun in that?

Also I tried fixing the trees collisions as much as I could, it should be better now :)


It was fun to play, with fixed collision it will be even cooler! :)
