As always, it's got that Hot_Shack charm to it! ;) I recommend checking out my VOD. It was overall had me intrigued! I would love to see a little more consistency with the gameplay, or rather utilizing that clone feature a little more all throughout the game! Overall it was a fun time! Thanks for the game, keep it up! :)

Nice game, music was the best part :) You went to big and worked a lot on all aspects of the game so it lacks some polishing that would make it even more fun! But an enjoyable game, had to play the download version of course!

Developer

Thanks for your feedback
The music was the hardest part because i'm not a music maker so it took me the majority of time
Sad reality

The concept of the game is cool, but the story and the visuals clash pretty hard (serious vs. funny), and the gameplay was confusing at first. You can easily lose all of your hearts to one enemy. I didn’t even know that you could get the cloning ability, I glitched the first two buttons. Also, I really don’t think you’re allowed to use a portion of a video from Vsauce and some of Michael’s voice clips and say that you made it.
I think that if you found a focus for the game’s story and art direction and did some polishing / bug-fixing, this has a lot of potential.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback 

I actually made everything except of vsauce related sounds and video

The art was mine and the code was mine

The first idea i had was that vsauce was supposed to confuse the bad boy's boss and so he wont trip and die but the game got big very quickly

And so i wanted to keep Vsauce as a joke

I just wanna make sure you’re not breaking any rules that would get you disqualified from the jam. I can tell you put in a lot of work, and it would suck if your game was disqualified due to you not crediting Vsauce, or even for using Vsauce clips in the first place.

There were indeed a few bugs, like going to the left at the beginning and pressing ctrl+R in browser (chrome) made it restart.

but the mechanics and shooting were good, although the jumping was a little to floaty.

thanks for sharing :D

Developer

The web based is indeed not recommended because of the Ctrl R but the downloadable version is more enjoyable :)

Nice job. I think I was able to figure out all the mechanics. I'm glad you put the controls on the same screen for easy reference

One problem I had is that some browsers (Firefox) use Ctrl+R for refresh so I accidentally exited the game :(

Developer(+1)

Yes i did think of that but had already submitted the game
You can play in the Downloadable version for a better experience

Nice game!

I would really love it there was a tutorial for the game (I still don't know how to use the health positions).

Thanks for the feedback
and also sorry for not mentioning the potion buttons. My time management lately is horrible

there is a bug when you go to the left at the start , where you get stuck after the a message is displayed..

I like the diversity of the places and enemies, could have used some indication on how much bullet you are still carrying though ;)

please consider checking our submitions as well ;)

Developer

It's not a bug you just have to press E to go to the next chat
Also there is a whole UI under the player showing how many bullets you have, Light Medium and Heavy
Thanks for playing my game

This was a super neat game. Really fun and stylish. I wish that either the vending machines paused the game when you used them or you could exit them without stepping off of them, as sometimes they'd cover the screen and I'd get hit by stuff I couldn't see. Very cool and I'm excited to see where you take it further! Also that fmv of you-know-scared the hell out of me, well done.

Developer

I'll be updating this game in the future to have that for sure
For now I very honestly don't know how to stop time while you are in the vending machine :')

Interesting idea with the clone mechanics. However for some reason I completely lost my ability to shoot during play right after I got that mechanic. It even persisting after I died and had to restart. The art is alright with the slimes with legs being a little unnerving tbh. Music is ok but feels a little bit tepid. Lastly, there are quite a bit of grammatical errors and some spelling mistakes in the game. Movement and jumping does feel pretty good however.

Developer

Indeed my man
English is not my first language and I don't have auto correct on my program :P

Dude! Really nice game. Love the clone mechanic, reminds me of the Minish Cap zelda game well done. Little suggestion, maybe it more obvious what you can interact with, I wasnt sure I could buy stuff from the vending machines to begin with

Developer

I never finished that game sadly :)
