This game was awesome, super fun to play and really well made :)

Nice game! The art and animations are great! I wish there was some music but great job for 72 hours!

The amount of polishing in this game is incredible! Love the graphics (eg. wonderfully animated frog, nice screen transitions), sound, and the satisfying gameplay. Well done!

Funny thing is that I didn't even notice the lack of music :D

One of the most polished entries so far, amazing job! This was really fun to play on stream - as mentioned the only thing that may improve it is a subtle indicator for the wind, e.g. a sound effect or something blowing across the screen.

Developer

Thank you very much! It was fun watching you play it and really valuable to see how others approach my game. I think the idea with the wind indicator is valid.

I don't know if you have a lot of experience with making games in a short period of time or haven't slept at all during this jam😂, because you have a lot going on! From the gameplay and art to the scene transitions, everything was very smooth (there was only a small bug with the leaf collision which was shifted a little bit to the right side). On top of that, the game was really fun in its simplicity. It misses only a chill soundtrack to make it a banger. Amazing submission! Keep up the good work!

Developer

Thank you very much! I can tell you that I have some experience making games in general, but only very low key as a hobby. I actually had like 12 hours a day to work on this, so I was working like 36 hours work put into this. Maybe +/- 2. 

I am very happy that you appreciate the level of polish, that was what was most important for me. And yeah, I would have liked to add music, but the time was simply not there anymore.

Very nice entry, I liked the tutorial screen letting you actually try the mechanics out and learn them. Great art and cute frog, what's not to like? :)

Developer

Thank you! I thought it may be too frustrating if I did not give any way to try out the mechanics in a safe environment. :D

this game was amazing! really great mechanics and it was satisfying to try and optimize my jumps! also very polished!

Developer

Thank you! :D I really put much effort into polishing it. Have you tried clicking the frog in the title screen?

It's tough but it's a top 3 at least for me! Well done! 5/5 stars overall! Would love some music but the art is too good to penalize!

Developer

Wow, thank you so much! I feel honored! <3
