Challenging game! I included it in my compilation video series of the ‘So Bad It’s Good’ Jam, if you’d like to take a look. :)

A game you want to play over several times. Setting well worked, art polished. Solid entry, congratulations.

Developer

Thanks!!!

Had a lot of fun trying this one out. It's rock hard, but controls well. I managed to figure out some tactics later on, like trying to hook the bus on top of the helicopter. Never worked partically well, but it was fun trying!

The art style is really cool. Kinda reminds me of the newgrounds-era flash games, but with a much more gritty aesthetic. Really nice stuff all round!

it's a pretty good game tbh


my only real gripe is with the difficulty (for obvious reasons)

Developer

Thanks!!

Really like the art style and the theme of the game. I love taking inspiration from a news story and figuring out how to gamify it, so kudos!. 

The tethered bus physics was a fun wrench in the mechanics to deal with, although it didn't feel like there was 'weight' to the bus itself. 

Overall, nice job! Very early flash game vibes.

This game was really hard or I'm so bad at it. Nonetheless, I think it's pretty fun. Nice job!

I think this game is nice! The graphics are good and it was fun to play. I sadly (barely) didn't complete the final level, if it ends after the three artilleries next to each other... :( Trying to keep the bus from harm can be fun when everything works out.

I had some issues with FPS dropping that made it frustrating at times, I think it particularly happens when the bus gets on top of the helicopter. The level selection not working with the mouse despite the rest of the menu being mouse enabled trolled me quite a bit!

Overall, I liked your game, good job!

Thanks for the nice review and for the list of bugs, I will check them.

I've decided to try using a standard format for all my feedback this time around. Please excuse me if I come across as overly curt or miss something important about your game. I'm writing these all quite hastily as there are a lot of games in the jam this year!

What I liked

Graphics are kinda bad but still enticing. Really reminds me of a Flash game.

Gameplay is frustrating but still fun.

Surprisingly polished overall.

What I didn't like

Fundamentally it's an escort mission from hell. I'm sure that evokes nightmares for many gamers, not just me.

Did I think it was so bad it was good?

Absolutely. It combines goodbad graphics with an absurd premise and frustrating but still fun gameplay.

My thoughts on the modifier implementation

It does a good job of being impossible but it's still just a straightforward literal implementation. I liked some of the more obtuse ones more.

Other remarks

For some reason I thought this had something to do with the Magic School Bus.

Are you supposed to be able to see the ground? It was cut off for me.

Verdict

Bizarre and difficult. I never got very far but I like it. Definitely SBIG.

If you have any questions, comments, queries or concerns, please reply and I'll do my best to get back to you.

A great game.  And completely accurate to the actual events I presume?

Ha!  Your game really does look just like it.  Wonderful stuff.

This game reminds me of an old flash game I played on Newgrounds or something more than 10 years ago. Your game is hard as balls, and that's awesome. I got my ass handed to me while trying to transport the bus. Thanks for the nostalgia trip!

This game is better than most of the old flash games. Nice challenge of avoiding hazards with both the bus and the helicopter. Not bad at all! I really enjoyed it as a legit game. Do worse!

That was pretty fun, but definitely quite challenging. I did have some trouble running it, it was at a pretty low framerate, but that might have been my laptops fault.

Actually, thats a pretty good game

Developer

Thanks!
