Super cool! There is so much here, I can't believe you were able to get it all done in a week! Fantastic job!

Submitted

Wow!  Awesome puzzle game!  Love the boomerang puzzle mechanics.  Love the hidden switches and everything!

Submitted

This  was so much fun to play and relaxing in the same time. Great job!

Submitted

really lied the boomerang!its so fun

It'll be nice if you check out our game too😁

Submitted

This was really fun! Would be nice if the boomerang was thrown from the center of the screen and the camera transition was a bit faster. The puzzles were really nice. I would definitely play this game if you decided to expand it after the jam

Submitted

Cool little game! Really like the boomerang throw mechanic

Submitted

Great game! Wasn't very clear what to do at first though.

Submitted

Really fun game! well done :) 

Would be great if you got the chance and could check out my game

Submitted

Fun game. Had fun running around doing things but wasnt sure the actual objective. With more time and polish this could be something special

Submitted

Fun little game, the level design was kinda unclear though and there is at least one puzzle where you can get stuck if you cut the rope too soon after which it becomes impossible to break the pot. Other then that it was fun to play :)

Submitted

Awesome and ambitious game. You've accomplished a lot here. Nice music and SFX. Clean movement. Definitely worth putting some more effort into. You could do a lot from this as a starting point.

PS. Please rate my game too :)

Submitted

A gorgeous mix of architecture and an amazing variety of switches and crystals and beams to interact with! Y'all accomplished a lot in a week!This is a project well worth continuing.

Submitted

Taking on 3D! I love it. throwing the boomerang feels really good. All around great work!

 It would mean a lot if you could check out my Jam submission if you get the chance. Thanks!

Submitted

The puzzles are super cool, a crosshair would be cool though for sure.

Super Awesome! yea do like the boomerang mechanics and the graphics in general. I would suggest a cross hair to know where you are aiming. Easy implementation

Submitted

Wow! I really like the boomerang mechanic.

The game feels very well programmed!

I understand that this is like a sandbox game where you just jump in and have fun playing with the mechanics. But if you make some actual levels for this, that are not as "all over the place" as this level, then this could be a really great game!

Also, if I may ask a technical question: How did you make that bouncy feel in the options menu? I love it!

Developer

We actually tried to create more streamlined levels, but they didn't play too well (granted, we are unexperienced with 3d level design :D ).

I'll gladly answer any technical question:
I use "Dotween" for simple animations and organic movements. That makes that cute menu button bounce as simple as

void Start()
    {
        transform.localScale = Vector3.zero;
        transform.DOScale(1, 0.5f).SetEase(Ease.OutBack).SetUpdate(true);
    }

public void OnPointerEnter()

    {
        transform.DOScale(1.1f, 0.5f).SetEase(Ease.OutBack).SetUpdate(true);
    }

    public void OnPointerExit()
    {
        transform.DOScale(1, 0.5f).SetEase(Ease.OutBack).SetUpdate(true);
    }


Dotween also fades the music in and out, makes crystals slowly start to glow on impact and moves the platforms. I highly recommend it, especially for 2D games as those can always use squishing and bouncing of sprites.

Submitted

Nice! I'll have to look into it.

Thank you for answering!

Submitted

Awesome! Love the boomerang mechanic. Some of the puzzles were tricky but i had fun exploring. :)

Submitted

Great game! I really enjoyed it. Couldn't collect coins though – my boomerang just flew right through them. The sound fits well and I like the clever idea and the design too. Well done! 

Submitted

Impressive work! I love the BatRang like mechanic from Arkham City and I think it is cool to have made a game centered on that!

I couldn't kill the ennemies however and since the boomerang is slightly on the side It was a bit hard to aim.

I also felt a bit lost but this made room for exploration and I like that!

This game shows how much can be done in only one week and I will definitely bring it up to motivate some of my friends ;)

Submitted

This was very well made, fun and a good concept using the limitations, very fun destroying the wood and archers
