I didn't have a second player, and playing as both guys confused me too much to really get the hang of either haha. I also feel like Joey is incomplete, his skillset doesn't work at all. But I like the idea of it being multiplayer. What was the intention behind it? Was it competitive or is there going to be some form of cooperation later on?

Developer

Thanks for playing our game!

Joey has the ability to grapple hook ,you just have to point on the grappling point click and hold.The grappling point picture is in the below comment.

We are sorry that we did not implement a proper tutorial or controls scheme.Our Intention was just to make a small couch multiplayer game!

For now we have thought of implementing single player also.

Yeah, I read it later in the chat of my stream. I'm sorry I didn't see the target of Joey, I was definitely intrigued though. I should also figure out a way to put my second screen closer for the next stream so I can actually read the chatlogs. xD I'm going to try it again sometime and see if I can get his grappling hook to work this time. Would really like to play a single-player version too.

A fun little game. Kind of wish for a way to go singleplayer. 

Movement was great and fluid.

The art style is nice and unique, although i did have trouble in the options realizing how to navigate as it's a bit cramed.

Thanks for playing our game and for your feedback!!

We had only 2 days to make the game and we are sorry that we did not make the control scheme clear.At last time we were rushing only to submit the project and did not concentrate on the tutorials screen.We are planning to make this game into a single player also!

We are glad you enjoyed our game!

Well I didn't have a copilot, so I couldn't experience this game to the fullest, but I did experiment with both characters. This was really nice for a first game jam! The overall look is really stylish, and controlling the two characters in different ways is interesting. It did take me a while to figure out there's a specific target for the grappling hook, I would've appreciated mention of that/a picture of the target on the controls screen.

Developer

Thanks for playing our game!

We are happy that you enjoyed our game.We will definitely update our controls and tutorials screen and upload asap.

We are also planning to make it into a single player with more polished artwork animations and smooth movements.

Coudn't really figure out how to control P2 (using keyboard)

Developer

Oh..really sorry about that!

Player 1 has A and S keys for movement and W for jump and double jump.

Player 2 has left and right arrows for movement and up arrow for jump,there will be circular grappling points like this shown below.Player 2 can grapple hook by pointing the mouse in those grappling points,click and holding.

we were not able to implement the tutorial screen at the last time and we are sorry for that because it made the entire game more confusing for a lot of people.

Hope u will try our game again!!

Oh I have to click on that thing to use the hook! I saw on the tutorial on the menu, but was trying to click anywhere on screen, thought that round thing was a collectible!

Developer

Oops..its the grappling point,we failed to mention it.We were rushing at the last time so we could not even make a proper controls  or tutorial menu,sorry for that.

Thanks for the trying out our game!!
