Great game! I love the feeling, aesthetic, and music. For any constructive feedback: I think the game could benefit from a bit of polish (like all game jams game haha) especially for sound effects and movement controls.  Nice work though :)!

Developer

Thanks for the feedback!

Love the art style - the choice of colours, and the way they change as you progress, and the cutle little bouncy animations all the different elements have. The music loop is enjoyable for the entire duration of the game, and I like the quirky dialogue.

The game could do with a bit more feedback when things die - when you jump on enemies, they just disappear, and when you fall on mushrooms, the level just restarts. A few sound effects, and a maybe some particles would really polish this up.

cool game, some improvements:

in start room with TV: if i press E button and go to the left wall and back - than i can press e button again

i can move by Q button in TV room

maybe animation of the player in TV room or TV animation


just a question: I don't know what to do wtih TV after clicking E. help me please I tried all keys)

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! Q also works because of azerty and qwerty support. After pressing E on the tv you have to click the arrowsbin the dialogue box to go to the next part of dialogue.

Neat little platformer! I really enjoy how the colors change. Some more platformer mechanics would make it a bit more interesting. Other than that good job!

Developer

Fun idea with a good execution. Platforming could have used a more dynamic jump where it's higher the longer you hold down space. Mushrooms could blend in to the background because of the similar color pallets. And all the enemies seemed to act the same, if they behaved a bit differently it could have made the game a lot more interesting.

I'm not sure if this is a bug but some levels ended as soon as I got all the collectables, and others required me to go all the way back and talk to the dude at the start. Other than that it was a solid game that made good use of the theme, I liked the art and music in particular. Nice job!

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! The levels ending as soon as you collected everything is a bug.

This was a fun game, and a cute idea.  I enjoyed the color change aspect as you progressed.  A clever idea for the focus and theme of the jam.  

I see a lot of other people made comments on anything I would have said regarding suggestions, so I will simply say: awesome job and keep it up!

nice game, very creative story, love that each channel have an own color.  great work!

Could you check my entry? I'll appreciate it, thanks!

Awesome game! Love the idea of moving through channels to repair the remote. It's a really unique idea which definitely makes this game stand out! I feel a few more sound effects would really add to the environment but other than that keep it up! :)

Would be great if you could check out my game also :)

Good platformer. I really liked your take on the theme. The Levels were short wich could help the pace of the game ?!?!?

I liked the ghost too, it added a bit of character to the traveller. When you have a button intended to be clicked on, it's a good idea to have shortkuts on the keyboard to it.

Though the controls could be improved and for that I reconmend you watchging these videos (please watch them for your own good. The last one I didn't send because I think your game is bad, it just contains the stuff you could improve on.):

Thanks for reviewing my game, I have come here to return the favor.

Good effort on the entry. I really like how colorful it is. I see a lot of people have said the mushroom hitbox frustrated them. I would recommend changing the color of the mushrooms to a red, to separate them from the mushrooms in the backdrop. I didn't realize they are harmful because they are also in the scenery.

Really good job for making something so elaborate in only one week!

One bug I noticed: when you talk to the man, you have to make sure he's more or less in the middle of the screen, or some of the text will be cut off. And this game I did manage to beat, although I think there's a place where when trying to jump over some mushrooms, I'd end up hitting the side of a platform and sliding down into the mushrooms. Pretty fun, and the music and art were nice too. I would have wanted some sound effects for picking up stuff and for taking damage though. And maybe the music should loop if it finishes (yeah, I stood in one place listening to see if I could hear the whole thing), and then it doesn't have to restart whenever you die and get sent back to the start of a level. But pretty fun.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! The hitboxes in the game need a lot of fixing. I'm glad you enjoyed the game though :)

It was a fun game to play, i agree with mewbusi that the mushroom hitboxes were problematic, i died a lot in 3 level and could get past it. From other parts of the game, the music and the graphics were pretty cool. 


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

Fun, but the hitboxes of the mushrooms were really problematic. They feel much larger than what they should be. The jumping and walking feel right. However having the player have to use the keyboard for everything but then having the mouse to progress dialog and have a dinky little punch made the controls a bit more annoying than I would wish. The pixelart is pretty good but for some reason the player's walk cycle did not activate when I was outside of the tv.  Music is nice but the lack of sound effects is a little underwhelming.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! I noticed the hitbixes for the mushrooms can be very irritating, definitely something I'm fixing in the next update.

Pretty nice game. The pixel art is amazing and the story is pretty good as well. I wish you used a slightly more unique font for the dialogue but I'm sure that is a simple fix. Overall, great game. I would really appreciate it if you could try my game too.

I liked what I saw, I went left though on level 2 lmao. It’s a good concept!

Hha sorry! I forgot some of my boundaries, glad you enjoyed it.

Nice little game. It's a bit repetitive, although the enemies change it's still just jumping over or on them and they all only take 1 hit. Perhaps add some more variety by making some shoot at you and some take 2 hits to kill.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! Definitely planning  on adding some different killing mechanics.

Cool game man! I wish the jumping was a little less... STATIC tho haha.  like if you stop hold L/R while in mid air you just stop, but that might just be me.  I thought it was pretty fun overall and enjoyed the art and music!

Please play my game and give me some feedback if you get a chance!

Developer

Thanks for the feedback, glad you enjoyed the game!

Loved the style!!!!!!!!

Really good use of the colors!

I found kinda frustrating you die when touching the mushrooms, and found the hit boxes of them big too, but over all i liked!!

Developer(+1)

Thanks for the feedback! I noticed the mushroom hitboxes are very unfair in some levels.
