Cool game, maybe improve the ghost powers, it was like transforming back and there wasnt that much fun. 


Feel free to check out my game, it will mean a lot to me

Developer

Thanks! Definitely need to polish the forms. I will check out your game now!

Submitted

Its a great game! I enjoyed every bit of it, I loved the music and art of this game, although I don't know how you utilized the theme "There And Back", but other than that great game!

Developer(+1)

Thanks so much, glad you had a blast! As for the theme I kinda went with going "there" to switch into the ghost form and going "back" to go into normal mode. Definitely could improve balancing though but I am very happy you enjoyed! :D

Submitted

ohhh so that's how you used the theme! That's a smart way to do it.

Developer(+1)

Thanks! When I thought of it I knew it was something different :D

Submitted

Pretty fun platformer! The main feedback I have to give is that there's not much point in leaving ghost form. Your bullets hardly do any damage to the slimes, so there's almost no reason to leave ghost form. What I'd add are some platforms or hazards that can only be crossed by your solid form. I'd also decrease the map size and remove some of the collectibles, because it can get very tedious trying to find the last 1 or 2 bags that you missed.

Developer

Thank you very much! Yep, ghost form is over powered in its current state haha. I do like your idea of having different hazards for different forms as that would make it more interesting. I kinda did run out of time as I wanted to have different platforms for the different forms but it turned out well enough for the jam. Thanks for the solid feedback for me to learn from! :D Enjoy the rest of the jam!

Submitted

Nice little platformer. Most of the points I would make have already been raised in other comments like the lack of need to leave ghost mode, and navigation being difficult due to the large sprawling area. Otherwise the only glitch I encountered was sinking into the floor when dropping from a large height which led to me having to restart if I couldn’t die.

But a fun little experience, controls felt responsive enough, style was consistent. Good job!

Developer

Thank you! Yeah generally I see the major concerns now and will take that into account for the future. For a first game this was a great learning experience! Happy jamming!

Submitted

Ah it was your first game, I didn’t realise, welcome to game development!

Developer

Thanks! With all the bugs it feels just like normal programming but with more steps haha. 

Submitted

nice idea there and back at dimensions, really nice possibilities to explore. could be nice a total counter, so player can know how many collectables are missing and try to beat the clock. great work.

Could you check my entry? Thanks!

Developer

Glad you enjoyed! I definitely agree with the improvement and will bring it in post jam. I will definitely check out your game!

Submitted

Fun idea! I can see a few interesting puzzles you could come up with what you have here.

I have a few things i'd like to mention though. I think the background was a little too noisy and that made it hard to focus on the character itself. Now i'm no expert, but i believe one way to fix this is by making all the background colors closer to the same color. That's what i'd do at least, but like i said, im no expert so i have no clue what i'm talking about.

Another thing is that the slimes didn't give the player any feedback. Maybe add some shooty shooty sounds, maybe a hit flash and screenshake to make killing slimes more like a fun thing to do than just an annoyance i jumped over. I also think they had a little too much health.

With a little more tweaking, i think this'd be a really fun puzzle platformer. Overall really nice for a 7 day game! Good work!

Developer(+1)

Thank you, I am very happy you like the idea. It was quite a feat to make but now I know how to improve it a lot! I definitely see why the background can be a bit trippy haha and the slimes definitely need more work to be more fun in the game :D. Happy jamming!

Submitted

Really interesting power-switching mechanic, although I felt the switching could have been utilised a bit more - at times I found myself just staying in ghost mode. Definitely scope to flesh out this idea into a bigger game though, nice work!

Developer

Thank you! Definitely a lot can be improved but I am so happy that this mechanic is interesting to you! :D I plan to expand this idea more but I'm not sure if ill it will be with this project or another fully fledged one. Let me check out your game too :)

Submitted

Awesome idea! I like the movement and the ghost mode, definitely there and back! Got 5 mins on the first one and I really appreciate a volume slider :D  Just one thing, maybe a map? It could be useful so we know where we're off, or maybe just like a general direction arrow, I was going around for like 2 minutes looking for one thing... Either way great work!

Developer(+1)

Thanks so much for checking it out! 5 min is very good, nicely done! I do wish I added some form of telling the player where the collectibles are as I knew where they are because I put them there but everyone else had to find them :P. Thanks for the feedback, I may update the game with that in the future. Happy jamming!

Submitted

Very nice level design, also music fits perfectly, choosing the right track for your game requires artistry as well! And controls feel very good, something rare for jam platformers!

Developer

Thank you very much! I really love the music in it too. I'm so happy that the controls worked out as I spent a long time trying to perfect them to feel smooth and not too clunky :D. I'll have a look at your game now too!

Submitted

Great game, its fun to play. There were a few collision issues in which player just went trough solid platforms, but other than that it was very well done. First level took me 4:18 to beat :). Congrats on your entry!

Developer

Thanks so much, that is a great time btw! Yeah I am still new to unity colliders so some work needs to be done :P. Thanks for checking this out!

Submitted

Graphics, animations, and atmosphere can be improved. Gameplay is good. Nice job.

Developer(+1)

Thank you! I am still very new to pixel art so I do need to work on my skills haha. Enjoy the jam!

Submitted

Nice game well done. Seemed to be really well implemented, and the movement and jumping felt great. Music was nice too. I would say balance wise, I didnt come across many reasons to go out of ghost mode, most enemies could just be skipped. Maybe something like you move slower as a ghost, or you can't pickup gold would encourage you to swap more?

Nice!

Developer

Thanks so much! I am glad you liked it! As for your balancing ideas I really like what you put, the ghost not being able to collect coins is a great idea! Slower ghost would also be a good incentive to go through the enemies instead of over them haha. Thanks for the help! Happy jamming!

Submitted

A very cool and fun game. I really liked the concept!

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

Developer

Thanks! I have checked out your game and really enjoyed it! There should be a comment in your jam section. :D

Submitted (1 edit)

Pretty fun game !Can be easily expanded to full release.Movement feels nice  and easy to control.

Maybe adding more enemy types can spice things up!

Overall enjoyed it good work! :)

Developer

Thank you very much! I am so happy that the movement works very well :D I do agree, adding maybe flying enemies or speedy ones would make it more interesting so there is always more to do. Enjoy the rest of the jam!

Submitted

Also i would be really happy if you check out my game :]

Developer

I checked it out and loved it! Emerald guy for the win plus great music, did you make it yourself?

Submitted

Yes i made all of it myself :) including sound effects. 

Developer

That's awesome, good job! I really liked the track when you are at the shop. Looking forward to see what you make next!

Submitted

Very cool game.

good job

We will be glad if you check out our game

Developer

Glad you liked it! I will definitely check your game out!

Submitted

Sweet concept on splitting platforming from combat to make the player make tradeoffs. I wish the levels were shorter and had more enemies but I still had quite a bit of fun exploring the levels and platforming. Great job!

Developer

Thank you! I did find the enemies could have been reworked a bit but for a first go it was decent. Definitely learned a lot :D

Submitted

Cool concept and can be made into a bigger game. I got an issue tho that sometimes ghost doesn't land on tile especially when falling from a high place. And some balancing between the normal and ghost form cause I didn't bother to switch back to normal form that much. But overall, I like the game :)

I'd be happy if you give a rate and a feedback on my game too if you get the chance :)

Developer(+1)

Thank you so much! Yes, the player going through tiles was such an annoying bug haha, I need to improve my scripting for sure. Balancing was also a problem but this jam has really taught me a lot, thanks for being part of the experience! I will happily play your game too!

Submitted(+1)

Thanks! This is my  first jam and it taught me a lot too. Happy jamming! :)

Developer(+1)

You too!

Submitted

There was no clear objective and that really killed it for me :(

Developer

Sorry to hear that :( , I should have specified that you have to get all 50 coins in the levels as fast as possible. Definitely know for next time though!

Submitted

Ok. Maybe Ill try the game again now that I know, and I’m glad I could help you!

Developer

Feel free to, I hope it makes it more enjoyable! :D

Submitted

Really cool concept pf switching between characters!! There are a few bugs but tbh we all have them xD Only thing I could add is I found myself staying in Ghost mode rather than Non Ghost mode because I could still run faster than the enemies. Still a great game, had fun playing it!!!

Developer

Thank you very much! Yeah the ghost mode is over powered right now and sorry for the bugs, couldn't find a way to fix them before the deadline haha. Enjoy the jam!

Submitted

The idea is really cool, I found the ghost mode super refreshing to regular platformers, though I did spend most of the time in the host mode as there just seemed to be more to offer while playing as the ghost compared to the regular person. The art is simple and adorable, and the music fits perfectly! I enjoyed this game a lot!

Developer(+1)

Thank you, I am so happy to hear that! I do wish I gave our normal character more to do as the ghost takes over but at least I know for next time to plan out my game a bit more thoroughly haha. Enjoy the jam!
