I guess I'm not very good at this type of game. But I imagine such fast "rumble" platformer is great for party multiplayer.

I didn't have anyone to play it with, so I only played this game single player. Loved all of the art and the little couch/chair leg animation. Also appreciate the option to play with a controller. Not sure if it was intentional or not, but the unlimited jumps was a little weird, even though it was needed to get to the platforms.

One thing that really bothered me was the slow pace. The slow movement speed mixed with the position reset after getting hit once made it really frustrating trying to get to the TV. The AI could also use some work. None of them went for the TV until after it moved from its original position after I bumped it. At that point, blue just bullied me in the corner while purple and yellow were both on the TV. I think the two main things that affected how fun it could have been was the AI and the slow speed. I think the one-hit kill wouldn't be so bad if you moved a bit faster. I'll definitely try and play this game multiplayer, because it does seem like it could be a lot of fun.

Thanks for the Input! We're implementing a double jump and adjusting the overall feel of player movement! The update should be up soon. Also, the AI really is very basic as of the moment. We will be making it behave more interestingly in future updates!

Thank you again for trying our game and for the input! We hope you have fun with your friends!

Pretty impressive game! Polished graphics, great music, and solid gameplay. The settings is quite funny too, couch potatoes fighting for control of the TV, genius! Well done! :)

Seems like it would be really fun with multiple people, I'll definitely have to try out multiplayer. I agree with one of the other comments that the 1-Hit kill was a bit too much and could be frustrating at times. 

Great art and overall production value! Great job, impressive for a  jam game!

Developer

Thanks for the input and for trying out the game! We'll take your comments into consideration and are already thinking of alternatives to the consequences of getting shot!

Hope you enjoyed man :) Thanks again!

wow :-) very great graphic and I like the game play idea. I found it really hard using keyboard & mouse - but maybe is easier with a keypad. And it should be superfun with friends .-)

Thanks for trying it out! Hope you had fun!

Feel free to invite your friends over to try it out! If you have more feedback to give we'd love to hear it! :)

Thanks man! Means a lot!

Incredible artwork and graphics, I really like the design. I felt like the one hit kill was too powerful, so maybe add a health bar.

Developer

Thank you for the input! Hope you had fun! :)

This begs to be played with friends. Pretty great production values on this, with the nicely done menus and artwork! Noted on the unlimited jump, but the movement does not feel very satisfying as horizontal movement seems a little too slow. The AI was a little easy, but I guess its challenging to do good AI within the span of a jam, so kudos on putting that in for solo players!

Developer

Yup! This was really intended to be played with friends so AI is underdeveloped! We'll definitely be tweaking movement in future updates! Thank you for the input and we hope you had fun! :)

In terms of graphics and audio this one is great! I played by myself, and I imagine this would be much more fun with friends. 

I did encounter a few bugs. For example, i'm not sure if this is intentional, but i could jump in the air, as much as i liked. Also, on gamepad the shoot button makes you jump instead.

Developer

Thanks for trying out our game! We hope you had fun!

The game indeed is a party game meant to be played with friends :)

The jumps are intentionally unlimited for the current version of the game :)

Yeah configuring multiple controllers is tricky XD Might implement a "map your controller" screen :)

Thanks again for the great input!
