Cool idea, great colors and animations! Would be nice to have some more sounds e.g. when you change shapes

Developer

Thanks! :D Yup, I agree, they will be in the mobile version!

Submitted

Great one too ! But why it reminds me Super Hexagon ! xD, really thanks for bringing me back memories of that game ! Like your style , simple but good, the gameplay is nice too , good job man !

Developer

Thank you so much! :D Yup, it was partially inspired by it :P I'm glad you had fun!

Submitted

Nice game!
I like the way you have animated everything so smoothly! :)
If you just put some sound effects here and there (maybe when you change shape and when you make points) you have basically a mobile game ready for the stores!

Developer

Thank you! :D

Yup, that's what I'm working on now :) It will be released on Android!

Nice little arcade-y type game. For me personally it would drastically be improved with sound effects, particle effects(when your shape goes through the outline) and syncing the music up with the gameplay.

The music kinda looped a bit weirdly too, but the track is alright. Very well done overall.

Developer(+1)

Thanks! Yup, I ran out of time but really wanted to add some, as well as lots of particles. I will be adding all that stuff to the mobile version though! Thanks for the tip about the music, I'll experiment with that. In this version I just found a track nine so it doesn't fit that well :P

Thank you so much though! :)

Submitted

The game looks and feels really clean. I really enjoyed the simple gameplay loop and the music was catchy. You did a really nice job! The only issue I ran into was that the score during game play was hidden while I was in fullscreen

Developer

Wow, thank you so much! :D I'm so glad you enjoyed it :)

Oh, did you click on the blue full-screen button? That stretches the game out for the whole screen, for which I didn't design the game for. If you click the white full screen button all should be well :)

Submitted

Ah that was it lol! Thanks for pointing that out

Developer

Cool, no problem :)

I love the visuals. In this game jam there are few games that involves shape fitting but I find this one the best! Cool minimalistic design and nice colors! I hope to learn designing such lovely looking and crispy UI in the future ;)

My highscore for now is 160 :D

Developer

Wow, thank you so much! :D

Well done, mine isn't much higher than that :P

This is a fun little game. I saw you say elsewhere that you want to polish it up and release it. With that in mind, I have some feedback:

  • The shapes come at you at different angles, and you snap to their angle. It might look nicer if you tween the rotation
  • Sound effects, of course, would be nice
  • I felt like I was trying to constantly remember which shape was next. Maybe with more time that'd come more naturally to me, or maybe you want to add to the UI that'd tell me what's next (like a mini me inside of me, but with my next shape instead of my current shape).

Great work!

Developer

Thanks! :D

  • Yup, I for sure will add that, I really wanted to add that to this version but I couldn't get around to it
  • Haha yes, of course :P
  • Ok, yeah, apparently a lot of people have been having problems with that. I actually really like your idea for that, and I'll make sure to try it out, thanks!

Thank you so much for your feedback, it is very appreciated!

The game is fun and quite addictive. The art style is nice and clean. An ideal game for mobiles quite reminds me of super hexagon. The only thing the game is lacking are sounds, but aside of that amazing work.

Developer(+1)

Thanks! :D Yup, I would have loved to add some but it was getting late and I was running out of time :P I'll 100% add them to the mobile version though! (which I will be developing and releasing :) )

Thanks for playing!

Submitted

Really cool, but transitions could be a bit quicker

Developer(+1)

Thanks! :)

Submitted

I really like the art and the transitions, they look very clean.

Developer

Thanks! That's what I was going for :)

Sticky keys kept popping up for me. Gonna comment more later on but since there's still time consider adding an alternative key to shift. 

I do love the smoothness of the UI UX at the beginning. Feels really polished and animated.

also think having a button option that is the 'inverse rotation' would help with the game feel as I could react faster to which shape is coming on. 

Perhaps even an indicator of which shape is in the 'queue' somewhere would be a great way to have the game be faster and demand more of the player.

Developer

Yes I am going to add another key soon.

The challenge is to know how many times to press the button though, so I think your suggestions might change the game.

Thanks for playing my game though!

Developer

Added space as an alternative now :P

Thanks! :)
