Love this. My teammate and I discussed a similar idea. Love the color palette, sound fx, and music too! I played through the first level and a bit more and I definitely plan to come back to this one!
Super fun! I would have liked to have the starting point be a bit more free of enemies so I have time to take a breath before starting the full force destruction. I love the sprite for the player. A sound effect for the enemies taking damage would be a nice addition. I will definitely be coming back to play this more.
This is great fun. I wish the difficulty were scaffolded a bit more like if the bottom floor enemies moved slightly slower or took one fewer bombs to destroy. I am going to have to come back to it. I made it to that blue boss slime and then got destroyed so I need vengeance.
Yes, this legitimately has wormed its way into my memory of games I rented from the video store. Sound effects and visuals and even the subject matter all just feels like an early nes game. I like the time bonus. The challenge level is good. It is hard but the first level starts off just the right difficulty to get you used to it. The start menu makes it feel so polished!
I was looking around to download this and then started making one but wasn't happy with the organization of it and just stopped since I didn't need the full palette for my game. Does anyone else have a loadable palette file for GameMaker with the NES Colors? If not, I might put that together later since I would like to have that regardless of this jam.
Agree with Ty. Game is fantastic. The controls are just right to meet the challenge. The lava particles might actually be my favorite part! A level indicator would be nice so I can see what level I got to and rub it in my friends' faces. Also, I can tell that if this game supported controllers I would get addicted.
I definitely want to see this further developed. I love the sound effects and the art and the weirdness of the controls. I could just sit around and push and pull donuts for quite a long time.
Most of all, I enjoyed the art in this. Great color palette and retro look. I noticed in a previous comment someone saying they could see this developed further. I second that. Right now there is not much motivation to try to move quickly. Maybe a count down timer? A good song could really add to the mood and create some tension as well. Great work!
LOVED THIS. When my kids wake up we will have to play a round before school tomorrow! What a strange and beautiful interpretation of the theme. I wish there were more dance routines for more gameplay! The visuals and song work well together to set a good mood. Again...loved it.
