The bear is too cute :3 I really like your idea, but it's a bit simple. It would be nice if you add some obstacles and if the camera scroll faster! Anyway, nice job =D

Thanks for the feedback! I agree, I had planned to add a lot more but I spent 2 days on art before realizing that I have no game yet so I kinda rushed it in the end. I guess game jams are a lot about time management and materializing a prototype rather than perfecting a game.

Really liked the concept! The sound design was really nice as well. My main feedback is that maybe you could have the camera scroll faster if the player is at the edge of the screen, but I understand why you didn't do that because of the bees that attack you.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! I played around with having the camera work differently as to not be too restricting but I couldn't come up with something that feels right in time :/

Maybe being able to push the camera forward without but setting a maximum distance for the bees would have worked? What do think would have worked?

not sure what a solution could be, maybe the levels could be changed to force the player to move more slowly or be more considerate. But again, the way it is works well with the bees coming from the right, so you'd have to take into consideration that the player needs to dodge those too.

Cute theme. One Nicholas Cage reference shy of perfect. Love it.

Developer

Thanks! It's considered good luck to whisper nic lines before attempting a run.

very cute and entertaining, I really liked it! ^^

Developer

Thanks!

This is really cool!

The art, the style, the sounds!

(My personal favourite is the sound the bear makes when he jumps)

Well done!

Developer

Thank you so much!

The art; super cute. :D And it's randomly generated, good job. Quite fun, too.

The only things I would change is keeping the score longer on screen when you die, because it's easy to miss right now. And the bear has a tendency to stick to the ground, which happens if you press Space a little too early before he touches the ground, I guess.

But otherwise good game. My best score was 1364. :)

Developer

Yeah, that makes sense. Should've kept that in mind for a game jam with SCORE in the title. Thanks for your feedback!

I love this! It's super fun actually and the art is really good too

Developer

Thanks. I wasn't sure I tweaked the numbers right to make it enjoyable, I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Nice game I really like how you implemented the theme and the art style is neat.

Developer

Thank you!
