-why can I continue without having played before
-the death screen is revolutionary
-touched the black block thing, screen blacked out but I didn't die (no dead message), don't get it
-oh the black thing is spikes, not obvious, shouldn't kill on touch either
-the crouch is too snappy
-it's too easy to lose the items
-didn't get I can throw them at the block until reading the game page
-ground spikes killing when walking is retarded
-the scroll wheel only works in one direction
-figured out I can expand the shard, but can't jump on it
It looks ok, is smooth, but I need some brainlet intro.
I couldn't figure shit out because of the CONTINUE, thanks dev
It's too easy to fail with the instadeath spikes and forever gone orbs, but no way to quickly restart an 10s death screens, but the idea and gameplay is solid.

It's a flash game alright. Surprisingly smooth in browser, but I'd want a native build regardless. The pixel font is trash. Can't mute, muted the tab, but that mutes the sound effects, which I want to keep. Use R instead of Backspace. Pinned the dragons to a ceiling, they couldn't do anything. Not sure if I was meant to drive backwards, but the level seem to fore it. With some polish I'd sink some time in it.
-always post images, few people are connoisseurs like me and want your dolphin porn, especially when there's 400MB of it
-alt+enter windows then full-screens right back
-timed text is not good, let me skip that shit
-when some of the text changes, for a frame the box disappears
-all that effort on writing generic so randumb cutesy text pretending it's progress could have been spent on real progress
-you can't quit the chatting
-you can run past and interact, it will keep running until you hit a wall
Making games is hard, but if you start skimping out on polish early on, you won't make anything good. No shortcuts, no excuses my motion blur man.
-the logo intro is convoluted, split it into ^^^ then Unity or drop Unity, or make it appear after a delay or hold it longer, I'd prefer keep length, drop Unity
-options menu has all this unused space and yet you have to scroll down for 2 options and there's text for ants: (1360x768 windowed), why even
-smooth window resizing is nice
-scroll bar appears before you can even scroll, the graphics for it are also out of place
-option font is borderline readable, bold font looks unappealing
-"Privacy" option should say (opens in your browser)
-clicking privacy with no internet does nothing
-the main menu option spacing is visibly uneven, though my shitty offset detection is very sharpened
-when you select a thing, the zoom-to animation is disorienting, either slow it down or motion blur it or teleport, or better yet, zoom out into a large view and zoom back into the target
-the UI feels all-over in general with the odd fonts, their sizes, colors, alignments; try making the differences impactful, otherwise it's overwhelming: e.g. BACK on the left and then ⁰/¹⁰⁰ ᴰᴺᴬ in the middle
-"Aquarium game mode - play around with things you have ever obtained in Campaign mode": all but the first class shows up locked
-the last class is just a tinted first one
-rebinding keys allows setting the same key in multiple places
-no idea what [strafe] does
-I'd prefer the dash on [space] and [mouse 1] to extend the clawthings
-the aquarium is very empty, nothing to see when fully zoomed out, a rough indicator of stuff would be useful
-large 10+ component ships are as fast as the 1+claw me, can't escape shit
-starting with nothing and then growing is too hard when you're both slow and there's nothing to collect and all mobs will chase you relentlessly even if the effort for them is high for what they'll get
-no idea what the leeches do
My probably main issue with this game is the clashing UI style with the game, the game is gorgeous with the depth of colors and good water imitation, but then you have some generic garbage inconsistent UI on top to dilute the quality. The progression is also way too slow, I don't have the patience to float around for minutes seeing nothing.
-options button function is both fresh and cute
-the main menu bg is attractive, buttons ruin it
-everything looks and sounds great
-controls and interactions are intuitive
-game is smooth
-sprint-bar is out of place
-expected to receive damage on dropping a crate on myself
-I didn't make the jump over the bridge, but spawned on top of it, to babbyfied
-Crashed "Fatal error" at the gate of the underground raileroaded room
It felt like exploring Orgrimmar, good shit. Not sure what the game was, but, other than the crash it's well made. Top quality.
You piece of shit, I told you a year ago:
-.zip the folder with the game files, not the game files themselves
-at non 1x zooms, the window glues itself to the topleft corner
-every shot shakes the screen, fuck
-no options menu in-game, not even option to go back to main menu
-main options don't allow turning off the retarded shaking
-can't use keys in menu
-E is a bad choice when moving with WASD, pick Shift
-reached the tutorial boss, already sick of the one note song
-wall collision is iffy, going down into a wall jitters
It's functional and has plenty of well done features, but a mess. Very inconsistent and fuck your retarded screenshaking.
-title screen locks the mouse out
-title menu looks like generic mobile garbage
-transition animation is too slow
-paddle goes off-screen
-nothing happens when you win, have to press escape
-no kb controls in menu
-don't let the ball go at extremely small angles, had it at 2 degrees, had to wait minutes for it to go down
-looks good, plays smooth
-if you click attack when the level is easing in, you clear all the tiles the ball moves through, bug
It's solid, could use better palettes. Good job.
-Put your files in a folder, zip the folder, upload
-Pls no mixels, the title doesn't fit at all
-The jumping sound is sound mixels, horrible
-Controls feel great
-I was never a fan of touching spikes and them damaging you
-Z to attack is not comfortable using WASD
-Leap down attacks could be cool
-You have two "Press UP to interact." signs
-Default text typing is way too slow
-Secret paths are nice
-You can fly infinitely into a wall
-Finding all the sludges is too punishing, allow leaving a couple
-Not sure why is water damaging me
-Died in the water, reset all the way back
It's a solid platformer.
-Installer? Virus confirmed
-Crashed on auto-startup, worked manually
-Never let Esc quit the game
-Mouse click to advance is disorienting
-Fullscreen is permanent, could go on with the garbage UI
-Could not pickup Molotovs, even though it worked with other items
Game seemed fun and reminiscent of early 2000s, my main problem is the lack of an attention span -- the game feels unstructured and even though has some kind of an atmosphere, I need more incentive. "GO KILL BOSS" could be enough maybe (?).
"Open source port of a classic DOS overhead shoot-em-up!" that explains it
-Playing or not playing actions when they don't do anything doesn't matter, you could make it matter by keeping the actions or having them do something else if they can't do the default
-Terribly in need of an undo-action
-Strat to keep buying Bread and Backpacks + random others works too easily
-Swap the bedroll and bread texts
-The trashing mechanic is interestingly incorporated
-After all the backpacking, it gets hard to see the hand, plenty of space unused on the sides for it
-potion says +5 hp, health says 12 (not 12/12), wasted potion trying to heal
-could not use bow with the glove effect
-beat the game the second try, with the first only buying gems
If you get the balance right, I'd spend time on this.
-Esc Quits the game -- rookie mistake -- what if I want to unlock the mouse or resize the window?
-R is for (R)estart not (Backspace)estart -anything that's not 16:9 messes with your UI, either not let people choose those aspect ratios or support them properly
-Can't even move the fukin window because of your mouse lock nonsense
-Gun keeps shooting if holstered midway through shooting
-I'm not gonna remember all this wall of text
-Holding Control is hard and it's the mechanic I'm most interested in, change it to Shift, or allow rebinds
-I expected to be able to pull up when ledge-grabbing
-Allow manual checkpoints in demos
-There's a massive shadow following me on the bridge, no clue what's casting it
-Legs messed up, have to all the way back, won't bother
I like the idea and the potential is there, but the inability to test the mechanics without being forced into a shitty level with complete restarts kills interest.
-thanks for zipping the folder, not the files
-game starts with the title and credits cutoff at 1280x960 (see image), block aspect ratios if you can't support them properly or, better, support them properly
-same happens in 1280x800, I just want it windowed man pls
-ok in 1366x768, only 16:9 huh, big surprise
-alt+enter twice and window goes back to the corner of the monitor: either center it or, better, remember the windowed position
-nobody reads text that slow, those who do, will read it even slower, mashing skip is shit, make text scroll at least 3 times faster
-show me what to press on prompts
-the knight sword animation is very rigid and snaps painfully, need sound appropriate to what's being hit
-the spell casting indication is unclear, is it until after? the smoke, rhetorical question
-the water is pleasant to look at
-death animations take too long, not obvious when a thing is ded
-thanks for WASD support, but seems like other keys aren't mapped to locations supporting WASD
-seems like mouse support would be easy to add, not sure why it isn't there, click to attack and aim is much more obvious and intuitive than F and circle with 4 directions
-I would highlight health drops and have them home in on the player
-either don't let me collect health at full health with a character or, better, send it to the other one
-need a run button, takes ages to move barren fields
-"I already read this" is bad, since I didn't
-why is everyone attacking me, but not themselves
Music fits and static visuals are good. Gameplay is too minimal for me. Comfy world. It's definitely an improvement since last demo.
-no option is preselected when running the game
-arbtirary window resizing is nice
-let me use WASD
-menu transition is too slow, make it 0.0-0.1s
-entering the options menu first time after resizing goes back to large size
-let backspace do what Esc is doing too
-game resizes back again when running game, stop that shit
-when resized to like 1280x600 the phone text is unreadable
-in fact, it's a blurry mess in most resolutions
-auto-typing feels bad, either ask for a prompt or let me actually type it out (my game does this as a primary mechanic)
-I'm not reading walls of text on game start, good luck
-it's a platformer
-what is this cs_1_6_run_step.wav?
-nice spatial positioning
-music by default drowns everything out
Fell into pit at the end of the level. It's a mess in general in terms of focus, but not bad.
-last demo is 15mb, this one is 117mb :thinking:
-nice that alt+enter beeps
-I expect game to pause on alt tab
-would either quiet the music down or silence it on pause
-don't ever allow mashing Esc to quit the game
-the mouse reacting movement is cool but distracting, tone it down to 0.01 of the current amplitude
--try exitting mouse by top window and coming back through the bottom -- janky
-the Escape button contextualization is dogshit, make it do the same thing and no more
-music is good
-sound effects are good
-fuck your screenshaking
-the shake doesn't shake the text, I know you want it readable, but it breaks immersion
-just let me turn that shit off
-the attack animation is way too slow
--when I mess up, I'd prefer then entire word to collapse and play a miss animation
--pressing backspace is contextually retarded, drop that
--make the words form a story
---then you can have special words, which accept multiple words for those who paid attention
-end level text should write 10x the current speed
-I can't into French
Eh. The mechanics need more polish. Some menu work and option settings will go a long way.
Said don't @ me.
levelgen - what you have is clearly babby's first "combine rectangles randomly", they lead nowhere, serve no purpose and filled with shit arbitrarily
mechanics - same shit, you just slapped in attack and defend and called it a day, there's no strategies to play around with, all enemies feel the same
I usually expand on something that can be improved in a way that might not be obvious. Literally any kind of improvement will drastically help the game because of how bad the mechanics and levelgen are. I'm shitting on these hard because I want the game improved -- even though the parts I mentioned are horrendous and make me drop the game 2 min in, the demo is well above what I expect from a DD demo.
-2MB.exe, well fuck me impressed
-the healthbar stuff looks out of place with the rest of the game
-let me look up the controls while in game, who can remember all that shit
-alt+enter restarts the game, what
-I don't like the gradient lighting
-great choice of colors otherwise
-level generation is trash
-let me use WASD, this isn't 2005
-mechanics are trash, no tactics
-camera feels odd, but maybe I'd get used to it
Experienced all the game had within 30 seconds. You figured out the graphics, but still need to do the same for the rest of the game. Don't @ me.
-put your shitty readmes next your .exes
-I'm not reading them either way
-I can't quite figure out how to open or when I close the info screen, making it unintuitive
-the shooting effect makes it seem like my gun is jammed
-the mouse-sphere staying on the ground is uncomfortable
-make running the default mode of transport
-not a fan of how the sticky the grappling is
Make surfing game instead pls.
-rename your folder to your game name
-Escape quits the game: what is this, amateur hour?
-support alt+enter for windowed mode
-when fullscreened, minimize if alt+tabbing
-button highlighting is near invisible
-UI click sound feels delayed
-On release clicks feel like shit
-when I've pressed a sliding bar, track mouse until released, not just when in range
-unless the girl is a ghost, fading looks out of place
-going out of the house collision is trash: walk in with W and try going back with A
-same goes for the house fading, if you're gonna do it, you have to at least leave the foundation occluding
-diagonal speed feels 0.5 of adjacent, it should be 0.707, you need some Pythagoras
-walking into moving square makes you spazz out
-I'll never read walls of text on loading a game
It's a demo.
Put your files into a folder and .zip that, not the files themselves. Every fucking demo. First menu leaves good impressions, lack of sound is very obvious though. The options menu doesn't appear evenly spaced. Unless the game is entirely mouse controlled, which it isn't, let me press Escape to go back in menus. Transitions between types are too slow, use 0.3s. First time entering the building mode bombards me with loads of types and their descriptions, my memory is shit, which makes me forget all of them, it's much easier when they're introduced, and used, one by one. On hover text stands out from UI in an inconsistent way. I forgot what I pressed to enter the growth mode, indicator for that at least initially would be helpful to keep. Don't tell me how to do things in growth mode without being in it or needing to do it, I'll forget within 10s. I would be helpful to see my orientation when building. I'd prefer relative movement to absolute as a default. Escape doesn't bring up the menu. Space is a bad choice for growth menu, I keep using it in an attemp to use boost and there's no rebinding. The MENU button makes it feel way more like a cheap mobile game. Death screen is very basic.
Seems like a 90% complete title in terms of polish. I'd keep playing if it was maybe 50% faster (make the game speed an option?). You'll do fine.
Name your game folder the same as your jam entry. I wanted to play it in windowed, even alt-tabbing is borked. Mouse doesn't hide after returning to game. Visuals and movement are great. Consider changing camera angles to show the things you're interested in, not seeing the door you want to walk to is ???. Atmosphere is great. Guessing unlocking the door is the end of the demo, since the camera doesn't advance in the new room.
FUCKING .zip the folder with your game files, not the game files. 400 fps + no option to lock it burns CPUs. It's not obvious to my simple mind how to start the game, says "Left click to confirm" then left click takes you to the menu changing, which has no accept only to go back and do the cycle again. Had to use AD to start game, why no arrow keys as well? you're even showing them instead of AD. If not for the video below, there's no I'd have figured out shift to climb the first platform, have the controls in the ship without the chance to fall out. Accessed the kb hint text around 5 min into the game. z-rendering. Menus look great, but use isn't intuitive, clicking a thing insta buys it and locks to cursor, but then clicking others buys the items and they disappear?
2 confusing 4 me at this stage, but at least the runnign feels great.
.zip the folder with your game files, not the game files themselves FUCK. Alt+Enter goes into fullscreen, goes back into windowed, windows BEEPS, game processes as if just Enter was pressed. Can't change the game to windowed when in-game, no access to the options menu. I wanted to use WASD, but too fuckin bad, because A is now the robot selection menu. Your window scaling code is horrible, pixels get mixelly, do snapping integer scaling with black borders. The game appears offset to the top by about 10 pixels, since the menu squares are "above" the window and the bottom row is black. Fuck arrow keys. The grass dust meme is retarded, how is the robot jumping on a metal ship causing dust? Sleeping is a nice touch. I'd prefer the A-menu to stay on the current mech, than revert to center. OK, so it's arrow key for movement, except for pressing down, which is S, what were you smoking? do both wasd and arrow keys, with tab. The spikes feel out of place. Jumping onto the recharging box from above while chargejumping, leaves jus WUBWUBBING. Assign the robots to 1-9, not spraying coins. There doesn't feel to be much skill in shooting. Oh wait D shows the map, ofcourse.
It's far more fleshed out than before and still good, but with the issues, while not the same, scale with the added complexity.
Name your folders, DD21 build tells me nothing among the others (also New Unity Project Configuration). I'm not reading the greeting wall of text. The button at the bottom to start the game is not obvious. Thanks for having Alt+Enter. There's no "Pause" menu, which, along with sounds still playing on alt+tabbing, is horrible. "[E] Credits" doesn't do anything. I don't like having 50% of my screen masked and the other 50% having a grainy filter with 1m of visual distance. No mask would be fine. I wanted to change the mouse sensitivity. [E] doesn't do anything at all until randomly it does, then 3 screens change and I'm with a mask somewhere else again, which is too random to get me to be afraid. Saw a light in the second room, ran into a corner on the opposite side, it disappeared, ran around the room with the columns for good 2 min, then fell off somewhere into blackness. Also no way to exit the game or minimize.
There's potential after some heavy reconstruction. Judging from the other comments, though I haven't even played the game yet.
.zip the folder with your game files, not the game files themselves. The "highlights in the menu" are near invisible when you hover on a button. "Privacy Options" takes me to the browser to opt out of Unity, doesn't leave a good first impression. Loading freezes screen for 10 seconds. Pressing escape to go into the menu keeps the mouse locked in Windowed and music blasting, neither are good player experience. Music still plays even on minimization. You're saving files to my PC/Pictures, why? just put it in the folder where the game is run from. Everything is very frustrating due to the bad camera controls, which is something out of a strategy game but mixed onto middle mouse button, no sense of what you're doing and not being able to do what you want because of all of the grating nonsense you have to put up with.
FATAL BUG: start game, press escape, wait some seconds, press escape, get launched into infinity. Happens every damn time I pause to write something here. After around 10 times, I had enough.
Alpha version isn't an excuse for any of the above.
Hey, thanks for expressing interest.
The short answer is - no, the game story is around 1-1.5 hours long with an extra mode on top, a demo would be half of the game and it already costs only $5.19. You can also find videos of the playthroughs.
However, I have no problem with you refunding the game if it does not satisfy as much as you'd expect for this amount.
Damn this is one smooth browser game, you put the green/white girl platformer to shame in terms of performance. If space is not used for anything else, let it be an alternative for jumping. Same goes for up arrow, Z is for console babbys. The pixel art looks great, but it's a shame you decided to vomit on it with those lighting effects. Collecting floating "coins" is some of the most uninspired design I've seen in a while too. Overall, it runs and looks great, but the game direction is unclear.
I'm going to ignore you're dismissal of any feedback of "this is early demo lel".
-played in 1920x1080, couldn't read the tower title nor icon without squinting
-the art is very inconsistent, which ruins the atmosphere of the game, you got some Mobile trash cutesy UI on the sides, but then the icons are paint tier and the 3D is a different game entirely
-when you click the tower, the icon bounces
-I need much more info about the towers than their names to make decisions: range, damage, rate, upgrades etc.
-if the actual towers are any indicators of the final game look, then sign me up
-the few sound effects are great, would disable the music if I could
-the choice to allow snapping to grid but not forcing is odd
-having to build the crystal without knowing its upgrades and being unable to reposition it is annoying
-I'd want to be able to individually target enemies or at least have behavioural presets
-if you need a speed-up setting, consider rethinking your mechanics design
Overall, polish the thing to the level of the towers, add strategy, variety and it should be great.
I got stuck in the theater room #2 on the left of the door, where the camera doesn't reach. Which is probably for the better because I can't handle the atmosphere, indicating you're doing well.
-walking into spikes and getting damaged is not intuitive
-neither is getting damaged by touching other enemies, while they don't for ramming into you
-wizard got stunlocked into death through a cinematic
-quit is halfway in the window at 800x600
-didn't figure out I could attack until the mass spawn aread and started spamming keys
-the trees look great
-aiming is very difficult with the keyboard, not much better with the controller
-animations don't feel to smooth
-consider fading all UI out when going into cinematic mode
-never felt like I needed the characters, more like I was doing a bad MMO excort quest
-infinite cinematic loop:
