The twist on the control scheme transforms what might initially appear as a conventional platformer into a unique and engaging gameplay experience. The constant adaptation required by the changing controls adds a significant layer of complexity, difficulty and also fun.

A great laser (game ;-)) ๐Ÿš€๐ŸŽฎ.

GAMEPLAY
The innovative approach to utilizing the laser in gameplay, where destruction also plays a key role in strategy and level completion, is both clever and engaging. The incorporation of recoil and the necessity to be judicious with your shots to successfully navigate levels adds a layer of strategic depth. This ensures players must consider their actions carefully to progress, enhancing the gameplay experience. Really had a lot of fun shooting the laser, even when that meant I failed the level. You do need some planning to complete the levels so it is not just action. Nice combination.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The game's aesthetic, characterized by coherent beautiful pixel art, is visually great. The laser effects and animations are particularly noteworthy of course. Maybe some objects could be more highlighted like the keycards and computer and exits as important, but not a real problem.

A well-executed little pet simulator game ๐Ÿฑ๐ŸŽฎ.

GAMEPLAY
This was really an ambitious project for a 10-day game jam, but this pet simulator stands out with its gameplay and enjoyable mechanics. I encountered no bugs like some other in the comments. The eventual passing of my pet adds a poignant touch.

The concept of managing money and making choices that reflect real-life financial dilemmas is both unique in this jam and engaging to do. This approach provides a solid foundation for a game that not only entertains but also educates players on financial literacy :-).

A twist on the classic Flappy Bird genre ๐Ÿ•Š๏ธ๐ŸŽฎ.

The cute, 8-bit-style background music fits well with the game's aesthetic. The addition of fluttering sound effects adds to the immersion.

A nice dungeon crawler like game ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ๐Ÿ‘พ!

GAMEPLAY
The concept of choosing upgrades at the expense of the character's sanity is not only unique twist but also well-implemented, offering players strategic decision-making. The controls are smooth, contributing to an enjoyable experience. Game seemed bug free to me and nicely polished. Choosing your upgrades every time was a fun choice to make and check how good or bad it went afterwards in the next room. As someone mentioned, health bar among enemies, for example, would still be nice bonus.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The pixel art style is beautifully executed, with charming animations that bring the game's world to life. 

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The music and sound effects successfully complement the game's sanity theme, enriching the atmospheric tension and immersion.

An ambitious endeavor within the constraints of a 10-day game jam๐Ÿš€๐ŸŽฎ!

GAMEPLAY
The attempt to create an ambitious game under the tight timeline of a game jam is commendable. While the presence of bugs and physics issues reflects the project's scope challenges, it's clear that the core idea and concept hold significant promise. There's a solid foundation here for a future development, where with more time and refinement, the gameplay could become a more polished and immersive experience.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The 3D world and ambiance are well-crafted.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The absence of music and sound effects is noted, and it's an area where significant impact could be made. The right audio tracks could greatly enhance the game's atmosphere, potentially introducing that voodoo or mystical vibe that aligns with the game's visuals. Maybe in a future update.

INNOVATION
The game may not introduce groundbreaking innovations.

THEME
The theme is present but could benefit from deeper exploration and integration into the game's mechanics and /or narrative. 

I think this game serves as a valuable learning experience and a solide base for something more in a future update.

A nice little platform game with charming aesthetics ๐ŸŽฎ๐ŸŒŸ.

GAMEPLAY
The ability to smoothly navigate jumps and wall climbs is a standout control feature, offering players a seamless and enjoyable platforming experience. As everyone has already said, it would be nice in an update to be able to skip the opening scene ;-). Although it was cool to watch the first time and brought me into the mood to play the level.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The game's graphical style is appealing, with some nice animations that bring the game world to life. Plus nice opening scene :-)!

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The music track complements the game's visual style excellently, creating a harmonious blend of audio and visual elements. The 8-bit-like sound effects add to the ambiance. This was a good combination of music, visual and sound effects. The exciting music also pumps you up to play.

The game may not break new ground in terms of innovation.

THEME
The theme is subtly incorporated, suggesting room for deeper integration in future updates or projects.

Overall, this is a solid and entertaining small platform game, notable for its smooth controls and cohesive design.

A fun physics game ๐ŸŒ€๐ŸŽฎ!

GAMEPLAY
Incorporating physics into the gameplay to guide Newton through the course is an unique twist. It does take some remembering that you can make Newton stand still so you can think and grab the right items to solve the puzzles. Sometimes it does frustrate when Newton suddenly runs in the wrong direction because you did something wrong, but the challenge to progress is definitely present and had fun while playing. The game cleverly balances frustration with fun, making each level's completion rewarding.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The graphics present a cohesive style that suits the game well, creating a visually solid and unified experience.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN

A polished small survival game ๐Ÿ๏ธ๐Ÿ”ฅ!

GAMEPLAY
Creating this little polished survival game within such a tight timeframe is an impressive feat. The controls are responsive and intuitive, and the in-game explanations provide clear enough guidance on what needs to be done, not missing a tutorial. The gameplay mechanics of gathering resources and utilizing items to survive, such as lighting torches and maintaining a campfire for warmth, are thoughtfully implemented, offering a satisfying survival experience.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
Utilizing the Unreal Engine has allowed for visually impressive graphics, with realistic water effects and visually appealing VFX enhancing the game's immersive quality. The addition of foxes adds a fun an cute touch to the game. Nice that the UI effectively communicates the player's status. Nice aurora borealis adds a touch of wonder to the night sky.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The sound design excellently captures the essence of a deserted island, with ambient sounds and the sea creating a convincing atmosphere. The SFX contributes to the game also, further immersing the player in the survival experience.

Keep this good working going and excited to see your next game! ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒŒ๐ŸŽฎ

An encouraging start with Unity by the developers ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŽฎ.

GAMEPLAY
Embarking on a 3D adventure with a new Unity development team is no small feat, and your game demonstrates commendable effort and potential. The quest to reach the church and explore the 3D world is engaging, although the controls, particularly jumping and navigating obstacles, could be refined for a smoother experience. Falling into lava or missing pillars while jumping occurred to me too often (can also be a lack of skills of course ;-) ).
Addressing the already noted bugs and considering the addition of a HUD could significantly enhance player orientation and interaction.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
For a first attempt at a Unity 3D game, the graphics are solid. Details like the meteor shower add a nice touch to the world.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
While the footsteps provide a sense of presence in the 3D city, the absence of background music is felt. A soft, eerie soundtrack could elevate the atmosphere, immersing players more deeply into the game's environment. Varied footstep sounds would also add to the realism and depth of the audio experience.

INNOVATION
While the game may not break new ground in terms of innovation, it stands as a solid learning project for the team, laying the groundwork for future development.

THEME
The theme is touched upon, check!

Overall, this game represents a promising beginning for a team almost new to Unity 3D development. Keep up the great work and stay passionate about your development journey! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘พ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ

A balanced puzzle game ๐ŸŽฎ๐Ÿง !

GAMEPLAY
This game looked well polished for a game in 10 days. After doing the tutorial, I was able to get started with the game and its many (18) puzzles. There is a good build-up in the puzzles with more and more elements coming into play. Sometimes I had to try a few routes before I saw the solution, but that made the solution all the more fun to find. Had fun playing this game. The smooth controls and responsive game mechanics ensure a seamless and enjoyable player experience. This puzzle game kept me glued to the computer for quite a while to try to pass all the levels. I had fun playing it.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The solid pixel art style, consistently applied throughout the game, provides a visually cohesive and attractive experience. The inclusion of some animations and visual effects adds an extra touch.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The selected background track enhances the puzzle-solving ambiance, while the sound effects serve as excellent cues for player actions, such as picking up a key. These audio elements contribute significantly to the immersive experience, guiding and rewarding the player's interactions within the game.

INNOVATION
The game does not lean heavily on innovation.

THEME
The theme is effectively woven into the gameplay, with the consequences of the player's actions and decisions playing a crucial role. The strategic choice of whether to collect wrenches adds a layer of strategic decision-making, emphasizing the importance of each move and its impact on the ability to exit a room.

All in all, a highly engaging and enjoyable puzzle game.. Keep this good work going! ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽจ๐Ÿ”ง

A fun challenging game with a twist on gold bars ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŽฎ.

GAMEPLAY
The concept of initially static and later moving gold bars offers a deceptive simplicity that evolves into a greater challenge. This escalating difficulty is engaging and kept me on my toes. The additional strategic element of deciding when to stop to secure a spot on the leaderboard adds depth to the gameplay, making it not just about skill but also about smart decision-making and not wait to long and be greedy and fail the board. Nice idea.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The graphics are solid and effectively serve the game's concept. Enhancing the visual appeal of the gold bars gameplay element could add a polished touch.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The background music is well-chosen, enhancing the game's atmosphere. The shift in music as the challenge intensifies is a nice touch, adding to the tension and excitement of the gameplay.

INNOVATION
The feature requiring players to choose the right moment to stop for leaderboard recognition is an innovative aspect. It adds a unique twist to the game, distinguishing it from more straightforward high-score challenges.

THEME
The theme of consequences is cleverly incorporated, with players facing the dilemma of continuing to accumulate gold versus the risk of losing a spot on the leaderboard.

Overall, this game is a great example of how a simple concept can be turned into an engaging and challenging experience. Well done and a good game jam entry! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฅ‡๐ŸŽฎ

An amusing tower-building game featuring dogs ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ—๏ธ.

GAMEPLAY
The concept of stacking dogs to build as high as possible is simple yet effective, offering a fun and engaging experience. It's especially commendable for someone who is still learning game development. The controls ok. The straightforward objective of reaching greater heights adds a clear goal that keeps players motivated. A future update with more challenges would be nice though.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The graphics are amusing and add a lighthearted touch to the game.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The inclusion of a catchy background tune and a few sound effects (SFX) enhances the game's charm.

A thought-provoking game ๐Ÿค”๐ŸŽฎ.

GAMEPLAY
The idea of a game centered around questions is interesting and certainly stimulates thought. However, a more dynamic interactive gameplay element and enhanced graphics could elevate the experience. The unfortunate crash at the last question is a pity. Wanted to know how it ended :-). Addressing this in future updates would be beneficial for player satisfaction and game completion.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The graphics are a bit too basic to my own liking, and the addition of more images or visual elements could enhance the game's appeal. Visuals play a crucial role in player engagement.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The absence of audio and sound effects is a missed opportunity. These elements could have added to the game's atmosphere, making it more immersive and enjoyable. Incorporating sound in future iterations could greatly enhance the overall appeal of the game.

INNOVATION
The game doesn't showcase significant innovation.

THEME
The game addresses the theme, but the inability to reach a conclusion due to the crash at the last question is a pity. I wanted to know the end. 

Overall, this is a nice entry with a unique idea. With some enhancements in graphics, gameplay option, and the addition of audio, the game will be more engaging. Keep up the good work! ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŽฒ

An environmentally conscious recycling-themed game ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŽฎ.

GAMEPLAY
The concept of incorporating recycling into gameplay is not only fun but also thought-provoking. The control mechanics, though functional, could benefit from being smoother. Adjusting the camera to provide a better view ahead of the robot would enhance playability and viewport, reducing unintended collisions with the 'evil robots.' These refinements in a future update could significantly improve the overall experience. Despite these areas for improvement, the game remains enjoyable to play and I had fun doing so.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The game's graphics are nice and do the job.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The catchy music is a delightful addition, setting a lively and engaging tone for the game. It complements the gameplay and enhances the overall ambiance.

INNOVATION

The theme is lightly there but checked..

Overall, this game is a solid entry for the game jam, offering both entertainment and a meaningful message.
Keep up this work! ๐Ÿ‘โ™ป๏ธ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ

A fun fusion of Metroidvania and card elements in your game jam entry ๐ŸŽฎ.

GAMEPLAY
Merging Metroidvania-style gameplay with a card system is a refreshing concept. However, the absence of explaining the card functions was a bit confusing at the start. A brief guide could significantly enhance the player's understanding of how to play the game. Of course after a while you know what each card do. That is true. Exploring the world on one's own is part of the fun, a little direction regarding objectives could have been a nice guide for me. I had fun playing through this world and that is the most important part.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The good pixel graphics effectively evoke a Metroidvania atmosphere. The animations are nice and contribute to the overall aesthetic. Incorporating additional visual effects (VFX) could add an extra bonus, making the game even more enjoyable to the eye.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The calm background track successfully creates a carnival-like ambiance, setting the tone for the game. The idea of including more dynamic, upbeat tracks for different areas could add variety to the audio experience, enhancing the atmosphere of each unique zone in a future update. Maybe also some extra SFX would be nice in a future update.

INNOVATION
Combining Metroidvania gameplay with a card system is an innovative approach. 

THEME
The theme of consequences is lightly touched upon. 

Overall, the combination of Metroidvania and card gameplay creates a fun & engaging experience. Keep up the great work in your next game attempts! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒŸ

Good color game for a first gamedev try๐ŸŽจ.

GAMEPLAY
The concept of adding and subtracting colors to achieve objectives is both engaging and not often seen in games. The use of mouse buttons can be a bit confusing initially. Considering the keyboard for future iterations might streamline the control scheme, making the game more intuitive and accessible. The idea is creative, and with a bit of refinement in controls, it could become even more enjoyable. A tutorial at the start can also be a good addition.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The simplicity of the graphics works well with the game's color-focused concept.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The presence of audio and sound effects is a positive aspect, adding an extra layer of engagement to the game.

INNOVATION
The idea of combining colors in a game is an innovative approach, not commonly seen in other games.

THEME
The theme of consequences is somewhat less prominent. Could be a bit more maybe in a next game jam game.

Overall, this is a fun and inventive game that cleverly utilizes color mechanics. The consideration for colorblind players is commendable, showing thoughtfulness in design. Keep up the great work, and I'm excited to see how you build upon this creative concept in your future games! ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŽฎ

A nice first game ๐Ÿ‘.

GAMEPLAY
The innovative use of past and future elements to navigate levels is a clever concept. It's great to see such thoughtfulness in design, especially for a first game. Controls were ok, but could be smoother with jumping etc.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The game has its own distinctive graphic style, which is commendable. The addition of more animations and effects could have enhanced the visual experience. 

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The lack of music and sound effects is a missed opportunity. Audio elements can significantly contribute to the atmosphere and immersion of a game. For future projects, incorporating a fitting soundtrack and sound effects will elevate the overall experience.

INNOVATION
Not really applicable

THEME
The theme is well addressed with the integration of past and future elements.

For a first attempt at game development, this is a noteworthy achievement. Well done on a solid start in game development and keep that going! ๐ŸŽฎ๐Ÿ•’๐ŸŒŸ

Nice little space shooter.
Not a lot of connection to the theme
But fun to play

A little choice-based game ๐ŸŒŸ.

GAMEPLAY
The idea of consequences affecting the narrative adds fun to the gameplay. While the concept might have been even more engaging in a 3D or top-down or other format, the enjoyment of reaching different endings and unfolding the story in its current visual story format is also nice. A bit more gameplay would have been extra fun nonetheless I think. Maybe in a future update.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The absence of sound is a missed opportunity. Incorporating audio could have significantly enhanced the atmosphere, adding an extra layer of immersion to the storytelling.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The visuals are pleasant, though there's room for further enhancement. More detailed or dynamic images could add to the game's appeal, making the story even more engaging.

INNOVATION
The game doesn't particularly stand out in terms of innovation

THEME
The theme of consequences is effectively incorporated, with each choice impacting the story's direction. 

Overall, this is a delightful visual story game that offers an enjoyable narrative experience through player choice. Keep it going! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ“–๐ŸŽฎ

Not really connected to the theme of the jam I think but a nice little game nevertheless

A game with a nice concept that will needs some fine-tuning to finish ๐Ÿ› ๏ธ.

GAMEPLAY
The extensive introductory text, while engaging and accompanied by appealing graphics/sounds, might be a bit overwhelming for players eager to jump into the action. Streamlining that big narrative introduction could enhance the game's pacing and accessibility. The controls for walking and jumping are well-executed, but I had difficulties with turning over the stone... And unfortunate that it was not finished but I think you learned a lot again from creating the game.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The pixel art style is charming and cohesive, creating a visually pleasing experience. This retro aesthetic, combined with the 8-bit music, forms a harmonious and nostalgic atmosphere that many will appreciate.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The sound effects and background music are fitting and enhance the game's overall feel. The audio elements, especially during the story sections at the beginning, add to the game's charm.

INNOVATION
The game doesn't significantly innovate within its genre.

THEME
The theme of consequences seems to be present in concept but doesn't fully manifest in the gameplay.

As the game is not yet complete, it serves as a promising foundation for future updates and improvements. Keep up the good work, and I'm looking forward to seeing how this game evolves! ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽฎ๐Ÿ”ง

A playful and thoughtful game with a ghostly twist ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ป.

GAMEPLAY
The gameplay cleverly requires players to think strategically about their initial run to ensure success in the subsequent ghost run. The mini-puzzles because of that are a fun challenge. I was not able to complete the final level due to time constraints and insufficient flowers :-(. But I had fun getting to that level! A brief tutorial at the beginning could have been beneficial for understanding the game's mechanics. Nevertheless, figuring out the gameplay was an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The pixel graphics are charming and well-suited to the game's overall aesthetic.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The presence of background music and sound effects is a positive aspect, contributing to the game's atmosphere and making the experience more immersive.

INNOVATION
The concept of a ghost run that precisely follows your actions I found creative for this theme.

THEME
The theme is well integrated, with every action having consequences that affect subsequent runs. 

Overall, this is an enjoyable and thought-provoking puzzle game. I'm looking forward to seeing your next game! Keep up the great work! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿงฉ๐ŸŽฎ

A nice self-sacrifice game๐ŸŒŸ!

GAMEPLAY
The concept of sacrificing something for bonus points is both intriguing and effective. It adds a strategic layer to the gameplay, encouraging players to make meaningful choices at the altar. The control scheme, though initially a bit challenging, becomes better with time. The exploration aspect and the opportunity to test various weapons add to the game's appeal. However, it's unclear for me if there was a definitive end goal, because I did not make it that far..

ART STYLE / VISUALS
Graphically, the game impresses with some cool 3D models and engaging effects. The world is enjoyable to explore. The visual representation of the sacrifices at the altar is creatively executed, adding a unique visual element to the game.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN

A pool game with a lot of P's ๐ŸŽฑ.

GAMEPLAY
Just a nice fun pool game, but the aiming mechanics seem a bit counterintuitive. It's interesting that aiming feels opposite to what's expected for me, which adds a unique challenge. Some extra visual cues would have been nice. Despite this, managing to pocket a few balls and even shooting a ball off the table ;-)! Refining the aiming process could make the game more user-friendly and enjoyable in future updates. The physics are good enough but could also improve in a future update.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The graphics are nicely suited for a pool game, providing a pleasant visual experience.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The calming sound design is a great fit for the pool game environment. It enhances the relaxing atmosphere typically associated with pool. Additionally, the realistic ball sounds add an extra layer making it more immersive.

INNOVATION
Not really applicable.

THEME
The theme of consequences is really lightly touched upon.

Overall, this is a delightful and compact pool game that shows potential for further development! ๐ŸŒŸ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽฑ

A thoughtful twist on superhero themes ๐Ÿฆธโ€โ™‚๏ธ.

GAMEPLAY
The game has an intriguing concept with questions about superheroes. However, the current button-smashing aspect could be a bit more refined. Developing more strategic or varied combat mechanics in a future update could enhance the gameplay, making it more engaging and less repetitive. It was still fun to play and see the consequences of the answer/actions

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The custom-made graphics are a significant plus, with the main character, in particular, being a standout. Adding extra visual effects during combat scenes could further enrich the visual appeal, making the fighting sequences more dynamic and exciting.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
The catchy background music sets a pleasant tone for the game. Similar to the visual aspect, incorporating sound effects during combat would elevate the experience. These auditory enhancements could add a layer of immersion to the battles, making them more impactful and enjoyable.

INNOVATION
The game doesn't heavily lean on innovation.

THEME
It addresses the theme of consequences..check

Overall a nice game jam entry. Keep up the good work for your next game ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŽฎ๐ŸŒŸ

A fun twist on the classic Flappy Bird game ๐Ÿฆ.

GAMEPLAY
The game cleverly adapts the Flappy Bird concept with mouse-following mechanics instead of just tapping. The strategy of using a magnet on the airplane to navigate through obstacles adds an interesting layer to the gameplay. My tactic was to set the magnet on the plane and move it like that and that made the game more easy and I do not think as intended. Wanted to get as far as I could every time. That is a good thing.  A disappearing cursor at the end, making it difficult to click restart, is a minor hiccup.

ART STYLE / VISUALS
The graphics are simple yet consistent, creating a coherent and visually pleasing style. The addition of extra visual effects, such as exhaust trails from the airplane or enhanced animations, could add to the game's charm. The cute propeller animation is a nice touch.

AUDIO / SOUND DESIGN
While sound effects are present, the absence of a compelling background track is noticeable. A rousing or catchy soundtrack could significantly enhance the game's atmosphere, making the gameplay more immersive and enjoyable.

INNOVATION
The game stands out as a fun variation of Flappy Bird, but further limited innovation.

THEME
The theme is only lightly incorporated into the game.

In conclusion, this game is a solid entry for the game jam. Keep up the great work! ๐Ÿ‘โœˆ๏ธ๐ŸŽฎ
