If you have implemented the modifier, how have you done so?
I made the game's mechanics very interesting, and the last level is a surprise so [SPOILER ALERT] Last level has 10k+ Blocks so you may as well quit

Any additional information for voters?
My First Game Jam, and my 3rd game, one of them is still in dev process

Interesting 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. :)

Thanks!

I love the sprites. The mechanics are good and make me want to keep jumping far and far away.

Developer

Thank You!

Host

Ooh wow, this game has a really nice aesthetic, and I quite like the concept. The random jumps are absolutely devilish though! Great work!

Developer

Thank You for the feedback!

I love the core concept of having jump be a random height. It makes a normal platforming section much more complex. 

Nice job!

Developer

Thank You!

After a long time, I finally beat the first three levels... Simple concept, simple mechanics, excellent execution. I enjoyed playing this a lot. And the music is so cool and it goes well with the frustrating tone.  I'm gonna be honest, I'm not sure if I hate or If I love the random Jump. Can I ask you, what algorithm did you use?

Developer

Thank You for the feedback! I honestly just used a random number generator, the parameters were  1 and 10, is the number was smaller than 5, then you would do a small jump, but if it were bigger then you would do the super jump, if you want you can check the Github page for this which has all the files and assets compressed here: https://github.com/14mmuhammad/SlipperyTheGame

The random jumping was a cool idea! I had fun with this one, although I didn't finish it (I believe I stopped on the 3rd or 4th stage?). Eventually I will try and finish all the levels haha

Fun and very frustrating game! :D

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

The retro aesthetic.

The chiptune music, which came as a bit of surprise because I'm generally

What I didn't like

The gameplay. I found it insanely frustrating. I think that's the point but I pretty much just gave up after five minutes of trying.

Did I think it was so bad it was good?

Kinda. It seems like mostly a good game but with one very cruel mechanic that makes it nigh unplayable, but in a way that is so bad it's good.

My thoughts on the modifier implementation

Impossibly frustrating. It's a straightforward implementation but I've seen some more creative takes on the modifier in this jam.

Other remarks

I think the gameplay concept is good, but I found it too infuriating to be fun, and never got past the first level.

Verdict

I hated the gameplay but I think this is a solid entry to the jam.

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

Developer

Thank You for the Feedback!

This is some kind of horrific machiavellian nightmare.  Well done!

Developer

Developer

Thank You!

Nice one! Definitely in my top 5 of SBIG 2020 games!

Developer

Thank You Very Much!

Submitted

Wow! Nice "bad" work! That random jump mechanic is definitely so bad it's good. Well done.

Developer

Thank You!

Submitted

Man this game is so frustrating, I couldn't beat the second level. Nice job! It was really good. I will try it again later.

Developer

Thanks!

This is pretty neat! The random jump mechanic fits the theme really well and definitely had me afraid to even use it at points. Lol.

Developer

Thank You! Yeah, I thought of the mechanic when I was programming the movement and came up with it. One of my friends was raging hardcore because of it.
