I don't have the code for this game anymore so sadly it's not something I can fix :(
I guess just don't do that - haha
Collect the souls from the ghosts - if you are having issues, I recommend restarting the game - some people report an error where you can never explore, even after talking to the ghost at the station
I really enjoyed this!
However I think I soft-locked myself - I managed to brute force my way through the RGB fireball knights on the old road using some lucky timing and persistence - then eventually got stuck against a knight with the same RGB fireballs but would throw another and had a shield.
I couldn't beat this guy so I ended up rewatcing the trailer on this page and realised I was supposed to have throwing knives at this point but couldn't manage to get my way back
Still, really enjoyed myself and it has a super engaging fighting system and has that classic Nintendo hard difficulty
Incredible Work, loved every second of it - felt really polished, especially for a first entry into game making.
Can I just check, is there anything more to the 2 "claws"?
I played through twice and got a different ending, and I assume it was due to the claws but didn't see any mention of it to confirm my suspicions
Can't wait to see what you put out there next, I feel like theres more to this story and would love to see it.
Hi Strawbreevee - I still come back here every once in a while, and thank you for your feedback. I forget but I believe I've fixed these bugs in my current version, but this isn't publicly released.
Thank you so much for your feedback though, it's genuinely much appreciated.
There was going to be, but I just didn't have the time to code anything in. There is a little place that you can go to the right of the "squeaky shoes" upgrade if I remember correctly - but it's been so long since I made this I can't remember haha
Hey Man, thanks for the comment - I totally agree, honestly I just wanted to trash the UI but I loved the idea of seeing the bullets in the chamber - If I have some more time I'll find a better way to draw it in a less distracting way
Thank you Morgashimer! This was made in about 4 weeks compared to Nothing which was made in 2 days which probably explains the polish in this one haha. I'm glad you enjoyed it I really want to come back to this one someday and finish it off
Just came here from your CPS archive project - I was wondering how you did the fun rotating particle thing - this clears it up quite a bit. I wish I understood math to the point that I could come up with this stuff by myself, I usually have to ask someone to help me out in the end. Great fun playing with this
FC this was great! I thoroughly enjoyed it, I immediately got invested with the world with the introduction of the switches, the music fit the mood perfectly and your pixel art has gotten so good now!
But most of all it's the intractable things - I spent so much time with the shapes and the train area. You really nailed everything here, personally I find audio in GM a pain to work but even the piano segment at the beginning felt just so right,
Awesome work as always FC - you're a real inspiration with what you do.
ah I just saw your message on the LD page - You can move the camera up and down using the W/S or the up and down arrow keys, that should help with timing the platforms a bit better, I never explained this in game though so you not knowing it is entirely my fault. I'm working on a fix for this now
Thanks sheeproid - Ah that bug is a known issue, I thought I had fixed it before submitting to the Jam but is managed to find its way back in. Yeah sadly the up and down camera view is never explicitly told to the player, however it is unlocked from the start - I need to think of a natural method of giving it to player - or maybe just another upgrade at the platforming segment would fix that
Thats understandable - sorry the game didn't live up to your expectations. if you'd prefer a normal platformer I've made one of those found here. A lot of the controls in that inspired the systems in my jam game. It offers a more natural Metroidvania style progression, though the humor may not gel well with you the mechanics you describe are exactly what are offered here instead.
Ah! Thank you @foolishfire that explains that then! It would be pretty easy to fix too. Thanks for letting me know I was scratching my head on that one.
Thanks for playing And I'm glad you enjoyed the game, I really appreciate it
Haha I'm glad you enjoyed it - and totally I struggled a bunch with the earlier parts when I was play testing the game - I think its because we become quite dependant on traditional platform controls like adjusting ourselves mid air to fix a jump. Without it, it's like you have to really think about your next move.
Glad you enjoyed the game, as for the song it can be found here:
AH! FC you really do put the Friendly in friendly cosmonaut. Thanks so much for checking out my game, it genuinely means a lot because I probably wouldn't be anywhere in gamedev without folks like yourself providing tutorials and insight on game development.
It is unfortunate that criticism can come off a little negative from some users, but it's commenters like yourself that make making games a real thrill. Thanks again and I'm glad you enjoyed playing my game.
Thanks for checking it out! Much appreciated. The full version is now released (Sadly not in HTML5) I tried wrestling with that export and it would just constantly throw a bunch of weird game breaking errors at me forcing me to make a windows only version.
That's unfortunate that you didn't like it. I was pretty rushed for time and put more effort into the art as that's something I'm more comfortable with, opting to keep the game simple and concise instead.
That being said It's unfortunate a few bugs and other issues sneaked through the cracks.
Outside of the treadmill bug (that sorry I hadn't seen on my previous playthroughs testing it) was there anything else you could offer some feedback on? I'm always looking to improve on my work and every bit of feedback is helpful
That's the plan - I'm still toying around with the difficulty, but the first area is supposed to be fairly easy to introduce you to the game - later once you have around 10 health enemies will start doing more damage, be resistant to some attacks and have more difficult attack patterns.
Plus the upgrades at the convenience store will have their cost's adjusted eventually
Not in the demo sadly - Thanks for the feedback on the difficulty - I plan on having harder enemies placed in later areas and scaled up enemies that will have more health - It's cool seeing people coming from Scratch to see the stuff I'm working on - glad you enjoyed the game so far
That's pretty much the end of the demo - Theres some places you can go to for example going right, outside of the post office area you'll find an angel statue that gives access to the test rooms
Thanks Batmobilly - The game is planned for an eventual release, so far I've implemented 2 of the main bosses with another 2 to go and 2 more mini bosses on top of that - once those are finished I can start working on the areas they'll be found - its a lot of work but I hope to finish it this within the year
I've only recently been a part of the Gamedev scene and the community has been incredibly welcoming - It's a shame I can't make it to GDC so I'm sadly #notGDC. However I'm currently working on a re-imagining of my first project now called Candy Coven (https://joellikespigs.itch.io/candy-coven) I released the demo this Friday and so far the response has been really positive.
