Thanks for checking it out! :D

Thanks, glad you enjoyed it! :)

Wow, this is very impressive! The graphics and audio are amazing and the gameplay feels super solid!

My only nitpick is that it's hard to see the enemies against the background, which is something we struggled with as well. We ended up removing most details from textures, making them closer to a single solid color, which helped, but it's a bit of a trade-off. The zoom helped though, so that's a smart addition!

Excellent job!

Considering you only had 4 hours to make this, it's very impressive! I like the overall mood.

Thanks for the kind words and the feedback! :)

Thanks, glad you liked it! You're probably right about the amount of mana versus the number of enemies in later levels. We just ran out of time to balance that better. :)

I think the green square you're referring to is the health pickup. It should restore one hit point. :)

It looks really charming and the music is excellent! The controls were a bit too unforgiving for me. I think I've have liked to have more subtle movement options. Could just be me not being great at it though. ;)

Overall I think you guys did a great job!

Very  nice! I think I kinda suck at it, but I enjoyed it anyway. ;)

The graphics are good and the music is great, but I think the "just one more try!" gameplay is the true hero here! :)

Thanks for your kind words. Really glad you enjoyed it so much! :)

I get what you're saying about using the attack more. It's one of our favorite things as well. The original idea was to have the game be more combat focused, but it turned out to be way too easy (boring even) and we found that having to carefully manage your shots made the game more tense. The alternative would have been to program more challenging enemies, which might have been the better solution, but we simply didn't have the time to do so. :)

Thanks for your feedback and for playing!

While 30fps is right that it doesn't seem to respect the 64x64 requirement perfectly, I think this is a lovely project. It's hard to rate, because while the gameplay of each individual game might not be super interesting, there's three of them. Plus the audio is great and the way you packaged it as a fictional console and the overall presentation makes it a fun experience.

BTW, if you're having problems with the game running at varying speeds in the editor and build, you might want to make sure that you use Time.deltaTime to scale everything time related. So instead of doing something like "position += speed" you'll want to do "position += speed * Time.deltaTime". That should make sure that everything runs at the same speed at all times. /end of unsolicited advice :D

I love how much level you were able fit into a single screen and still have things be recognizable (and looking good!). I liked the challenge and was able to get all the orbs, not in a single run unfortunately. ;)

Only complaint is that I had one or two instances were things felt a bit unfair. I fell from one screen into the next right into an enemy that I couldn't have seen coming, for example.

Thanks for playing! :)

Thanks for sharing your playthrough with us. Really cool and helpful to see! :)

Thanks! I'm pretty happy that I added the pause timer at last minute. :D

Thanks! :)

Thanks! :)

Thanks! Really glad you enjoyed it! :)

Hey, thanks for playing and putting it in your video! :)

Nice game! Impressed with how many levels you made. I really like the overall style, especially the music, it all fits nicely together. :) Got almost all the way through, but I died on the way back in the final level, so I ragequit. ;D

Thanks, glad you liked it! :)

Really nice game! I loved the Atari-esque vibe I got from it. The piano guy made me laugh. :D

Love the art style! Controls take a bit getting used to, but feel nice when you do. Too bad about the lack of audio, but other than that, really nice job!

Looks sounds really great. The gameplay is simple, but works well. Nice job! :)

Great atmosphere, kinda scary actually. :P Enjoyed it, great job!

Really impressive how much detail you were able to put in the graphics, considering the low resolution. :)

Thanks! Glad you liked it! :)

The controls are not really standard, but I thought they worked quite well, so I kept them like that. Obviously, I should really just add gamepad support though. ;)

Thanks for checking out the Linux version. Good to know that it works ok. :)

Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it! :)

Thanks a lot for your feedback! I totally agree that adding more movement options would be better. It's something I'll definitely look into if I decide to do a post-jam thing with it. :)

Thanks! Really glad you liked it. :)

Thank you! :D

Thanks! Glad you liked it. :)

Cool game! The gameplay is quite addictive. And I loved the looks and audio. :)

Nice job! Gameplay is good and it looks nice. :)

Looks great. Sounds amazing! :)

I wasn't able to test the Linux build, sorry if it doesn't work correctly!

Thanks! :)

You're right that the game is unfair at times. I've got some ideas on how to fix that if I decide to spend some more time on this game. :)

Thanks for playing! :)

Hey Joshua, thanks for playing my game and the feedback. :)

Totally agree with your points, especially that a highscore would have made a big difference. Unfortunately, that feature (among others) fell victim to my poor time management this time around. ;)
