Funny 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. :)

I absolutely love the whole premise and setup of this game. It's one of the most hilarious intros I've seen in SBIGJam history!

The game is really polished, and I love seeing Edwardo fall flat on his face. The game is extremely difficult, and my main issue, if anything, is the lack of checkpoints or saves. I feel this would really help the overall playability.

With that said, I tried, and failed, many times, and I had a great time doing so. Well done!

This is honestly a rather good game.

I don't understand why I keep hitting my face on the ground. This must be the work of an enemy「STAND」!!. No seriously, I only understand it at 90%, there are some times when I don't know. References aside, I really liked the visual novel introduction. The animations and sound effects were on point. And the gameplay it's pretty fun but frustrating. Loved it!

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 premise is hilarious.

The graphics are oldschool and work perfectly here.

The face-plant animation is absolutely hilarious.

The gameplay is annoying but actually kind of fun.

What I didn't like

Being sent back to the very beginning when you die (or at least the beginning of a large section) is incredibly irritating.

Did I think it was so bad it was good?

Absolutely.

My thoughts on the modifier implementation

Impossible via a degenerate feature? An interesting take on things.

Other remarks

I didn't get very far into the game.  I kept dying and wasn't willing to keep playing the beginning over and over again.

Verdict

I didn't get very far into this game but it was funny, had a neat gameplay mechanic, and definitely so bad it's good.

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

Okay, so watching him fall on his face repeatedly is objectively hilarious.  Nicely made.  I do wonder if this is just a good game as opposed to a bad good game though?

Nice job! Very polished game that might not fit into this jam. But who cares? Funny idea with jumpman being a very poor jumper. Reminds me of an old game called Jumpman, which I guess isn't coincidental :)

Really great aesthetic overall. It has a great amount of polish...maybe too much for this specific game jam. 

Nice job!

I chuckled when the character fell for the first time haha It is an ingenious mechanic. Well done there! Oh, and hanging from the edges is sweet!

Couldn't figure out how to land properly though, sometimes he landed on his feet, sometimes he fell right to the ground!  

Nice game!

"Who the f*** are you?" says the first NPC you meet. :)))) Well done!
