Nice ;D

The art was something I really liked, and the gameplay was both challenging and fun at the same time. The jumping could use some polishing, and I think it would be nicer if the camera was a little bit more zoomed out so that we see the ground all the time. Overall a great entry to the jam! Good job.

I did have some trouble with Jumps and the distancing and as others said the leap of faith aspect.  In browser by default the menu may need larger margins as they don't fit in screen.  Hope you also had fun during this Jam :)

I completely understand the frustration with the jumps I wish I was able to fix the camera so the levels wouldnt be leaps of fait. Also thanks for the tip on the menu this was my second ever jam and I was busy some of the days so I didnt get to polish as much as I would like. Thanks again for the feed back and I definitely had fun!

I like the art, but i have to take jumps of faith a lot.

Developer

glad you liked the art and thanks for playing the game. I’ve gotten the jump feedback a lot and I agree sorry for the difficulties thanks again!

Nice art and great sounding music, kind of 8-bit, although the camera could be zoomed out a bit to see what's below you.

Developer

thanks for playing and giving feedback on my game. I agree the camera could be improved. I will definitely be improving it in the future. Thanks again!

Submitted

Please notify me when you do update and improve it, I would like to play it again.

Developer

will do and thanks again!

Just released an update for my game that fixed some of the UI/text, camera(could still use some work, new enemy, better effects/some new art, and fixed the near impossible jump on prickly peak.

Thank You!

the art is really stylized in a nice way in this game, i enjoy the simplicity in the music its a sortof relaxing experience. the concept fits the theme well, however i had trouble beating prickly peaks due to snakes being below the camera and cant see until its too late. this is also my second game jam and i took quite a break inbetween. if you ever wanted to work together on a project send me a mesage

thanks for taking the time to play my game and give feedback. I agree that the camera could use some work. Whenever I was playtesting I already knew when I needed to jump so it made it easier sorry for the difficulties and thanks again for the feedback I appreciate it! I will definitely be checking out your game!

Funnily enough, we also did fish out of water. I liked your unique take on this type of game. The different paths in the level design were interesting and seemed to reward the player for taking them. I was not able to complete the game however, as I could not get past the two snakes in prickly peak. Overall, your game is very solid and fun, just with a couple of little things, but for a game jam this is awesome.

Developer

glad you enjoyed the game and thanks for the feedback. I agree have gotten multiple people talking about that part on prickly peak and I agree. I will definitely focus on bettering the camera so it makes it less of a lucky jump. Thanks again!

This is your second game ever made?? This is great und much fun to play!

Because you asked for it, here my suggestions :)

  • look into parallax scrolling! it would add so much to the graphics and without too much additional effort
  • sometimes it's frustrating when you jump right into a snake pit because you didn't see it during the jump. You could zoom out with the camera whenever you jump high.
  • allow the player to do small jumps (hit the keyboard only quickly) vs. large jumps (press and hold the keyboard)

But again its a great submission, addictive!

Yep this was my seconds ever and I just started getting back into game dev last week after a year break. I really appreciate the feedback and will definitely look into parallax scrolling for future games/updates to this game. I completely understand the frustration with the camera and the jumps I was busy 2 out of the 3 days so I didn’t get to polish everything as much as I would like. Also I will most likely be updating this game so I will most likely add small/large jumps. Thanks for all the feedback I really appreciate it! I will definitely be checking out your game. Thanks again!
