I'm glad you enjoyed the game! The reviews/ratings must've been accidentally turned off. I've turned them back on. Thanks for letting me know :)

Thanks for playing! I'm sorry it was so fast for you and you had trouble, but I'm glad you enjoyed it anyways. By the way, the poleman was indeed to shield up and run at them at the same time. As for the final key, you went to every room except the one with it;;;; lol I'll see about slowing things down a bit;;;; If you're interested, here's a little break down of the rooms: https://atemly-games.itch.io/bearied-treasure/devlog/47639/bearied-treasure-post...
Hey everyone! Thank you for all the comments so far. If it's of interest to anyone, we wrote a blog post talking about the game design and the mechanics. :) https://atemly-games.itch.io/bearied-treasure/devlog/47639/bearied-treasure-post...
Nice art and music. Interesting concept!
I would've appreciated if the respawn point was the last place you jumped/fell off from instead of a little ways back. I also would've appreciated if the music between the two worlds flowed better considering how often you're jumping back and forth between them.
I think there's a lot of things to improve on. The collisions for the player character were very bouncy and I felt like I was playing in 0 gravity. The enemies also didn't seem like they were too difficult since for the most part they just charged at you. By their design I thought they would start shooting at me immediately. I think if you are going to have terrain digging you should make sure that each block is the exact size of the character. I can see myself trying to escape but I have to dig two rows instead of one.
It would be beneficial if you had some music, and displayed a control summary on the start screen of the game.
Otherwise I think it's pretty solid and needs a few gameplay tweaks. Good job!
The art and music was really well done. I was impressed when you introduced that falling down looped you around the screen because my thought process was "Oh I can't get those crystals whatever I'll get the ones below- OHHH".
The keyboard controls were a pain though. I kept wanting to hit space for jump and I had to shift around my normal keyboard finger placement so that my pinky wasn't on the Z because it's awkward and it started to hurt. I would've liked if just pressing down pushed you through the platforms instead of having to press jump as well.
I had a lot of trouble timing the bash with the enemy attacks. I would wait and when they got close enough I would execute the bash, but by then they would've already hit me because it took too long. I also couldn't tell the area range of the bash until after it happened, so it would be nice if while you charged a little circle appeared (think Twilight Princess Link wolf-form group attack thing). Animations in general seemed to take a long time, so it was just easier for me to run around dodging enemies.
I did really appreciate that little tutorial at the beginning telling me which keys to use my god I loved that so much.
It's a shame there wasn't any music.
I think if you worked on the feel and controls of the game and had it a bit faster paced it would improve.
A lot of my comments others have mentioned below, but I'm going to just +1 that the tongue was slow, and I didn't know what I could or could not grapple onto. I tried to grapple onto the walls and couldn't. I also tried grappling the platforms and it worked maybe 3/10 times. I lost near the very bottom of the map once because I couldn't get the hang of it.
That being said, the music fit your aesthetic and the art was pretty good :) I think if you improved the mechanics and feel of the game it would be great.
Either way, great job! :D
I'm not too sure what you mean (and your link doesn't work?), but I do know that I need to fix a bug with the collisions, there's just a significant hiccup in getting it done. (Also thank you for the Z sorting bug)
