Reloading from a previous save point fixed the 'Jet Pack' issue i was having, now i'm conscious not to use it in constant manner. :) i cant seem to connect the Power Stations to excavator though. Right click, Drag from Power station and it places connectors but does nothing else i'm afraid. I know this is an alpha build, so i expect things not to work as they should at this stage, but i enjoyed it so far and well done. Look forward to having another go when out of alpha. :)

I was constantly hovering near my excavator coz I stupidly dug everywhere around it for the ore so it was kinder floating, and I was using the inventory, then I just fell to the ground after some time, and now can’t use it. I thought it may have to “charge” or given some time, but was like 10 mins and still didn’t work. that said , I haven’t tried to reload my game, that could fix it maybe, but il have to do it tomorrow and I will let you know.
The tutorial works well, and it gradually eases you into how it works so far, but I’m still looking to carry on, I may have to start again. I will write about it once I’m done which should give you some feedback.:)
My thoughts so far(ignoring the jet pack bug)
* Using space bar for the jet pack works OK, I would maybe prefer using the ‘up’ direction like right and left and have the character just “fall” when the up direction isn’t being pressed as having to press the “s” button to drop. Think this will make a better “flow” of movement, and maybe feel a bit faster, for me it works ok, but feels “clunky” but tolerable. Also I would like to see you being able to continue through movement when mining horizontally, instead of like a stop start when destroying 1 material at a time.
So far everything else has been great, I love the inventory system, it works and doesn’t look to complicated or overbearing and the tutorial does explain things well.:)
Hi, was giving this a try, and i like it so far, but my 'Jet Pack' stopped working, so i'm stuck. I can move left and right no probs, but getting up anywhere is a problem, i cant use my machines, so i was wondering if this was supposed to happen, and need to get 'Power' some how for my jet pack? i assume it wouldn't last forever, but couldn't find anything in game to help with this, or is it a bug and your jet pack should always work and this is a bug? Thanks.
There are 2 images in the file. These files can be used as tiles 8x8 or 16x16.
What software are you using? if your software doesn't have the function to use an image like this as 'tiles'then i will be happy to generate a 8x8 tile/ 16x16 tile set for you. (bu these are a lot harder to use that way).
Does your download files contain these images? sorry for the inconvenience. :(

Ok, I've been playing this again and il drop some thoughts in here, I know you appreciate the feedback looneybits. :)
Lanes: It is kind of difficult to realise the separate lanes to begin with unless you been playing a few times.
Suggestion: You have 3 darker trials on the run path, maybe change this to 5 to show the player they are like lanes. After a period of time you could have these lighten/disappear as the waves/game gets harder. Or perhaps the speed effect you have could be rendered in a way they shows the lanes in a subtle manner nearer the zebra playing area.
"That's the deal, if you don't survive you won't get the stars."
I understand that, but i find that this really punishes the player. What i think will be a good idea would be to add another variable that gives the player something else to play for as well, maybe an XP, which could unlock things like a 'Jump' ,'invincibility' or 'continue' perk for a short while to give the player some hope of reaching the end of the waves. On many occasions i got to wave 4 after like 10 attempts only for the tree to kill me, (and i wasn't convinced i actually hit the tree) and lost all my coins on that run. Then to be honest i didn't feel like playing it anymore, had i got something for my trouble it would make it more the while playing or continue trying and not feel so hard done by.
i did notice that it does get slightly faster on some waves.
Hope this is helpful. :)
Cow Zebra! this is tough Mr Looneybits. I dunno whats happened, but ive had about 100 gos at it and now my arrow keys are not working for your game. ive refreshed, restarted the browser but its not working anymore. is there a file that gets saved in a local when playing which might effect the game? its the most strangest thing i've ever encountered. :) il try again later. maybe my browser is broken. i'm using google chrome if that helps.
wow, this really good from what i have played so far, waiting for full release. I would ask though, please implement a 'Windowed' mode for resolution configuration on PC/Mac/Linux formats. :) all the best. looking forward o playing again. :)
