But, a sad story: I found all of the train pieces (the game congratulated me), then entered the pit to the lab, and died shortly afterwards (IIRC a mole killed me). I respawned by the lab-pit entrance and continued on until I found the train-set thing, which claimed I was missing the last piece!!
In hindsight, I guess dying made me lose that last piece? I sort of wish they were permanent pickups, or anyway that there was some sort of UI to let me know I lost it. As it stands I don't think I can backtrack to get that last missing piece... alas. :(
I really liked the range of moving platforms/switches though, simple and charming :)
no worries... I definitely understand how much effort something like that is! And I do find it sort of charming that SokPop games are all shorter bite-sized things with no saving, like NES carts. I just don't usually have more than 30min at a time to play games these days, alas ;-;
This game is *amazing*, however.. is there really no way to save? I played for an hour, found the compass, cutlass, shovel, metal ship, but then I had to stop. And now I have to start again?! whyyyyy ;-;
(seriously though, this game is incredible. A really fantastic style!)
I don't know if the non-saving thing is intended or just due to the fact that the game crashes when I select "quit".
Okay I'm an idiot: my problem was that I was holding the down key the whole time. I guess this should be obvious, but anyway if I let go of down when I hit X on landing, it works.. hooray! Sorry about that -- I'm going to leave this thread instead of deleting it in case it helps anyone else that's dumb like me ;)
lol.. okay after posting I tried again for a while, this time spamming all buttons chaotically, and something happened! This allowed me to try some experiments and I've figured out what's happening (sort of): just pressing X doesn't do it. Instead, when I land I seem to have to press *backwards* (run direction) and X. This is the only way to trigger the super jump as far as I've found, simply holding down doesn't work.
I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong but I literally can't super jump even once. I've been trying for 5 minutes straight (I seem to be stuck near the start because of this) but no dice.. I'm pretty sure I understand the concept (jump when landing from a roll-jump) but I just can't get it to happen.
I've tried pressing it early, I've tried pressing it late; I've tried spamming the jump button, it's just not happening! :/
Is there any chance this is some weird input bug? I'm on win7. This game looks so amazing, I'd really love to play it but this seems impossible for some reason. ;-;
