- Simple, straightforward idea
- Good opportunity for Hanks synergy
- Buggy controls / inconsistencies
- Very short music loop
It's a little rough, there are a bunch of inconsistencies that make the game more frustrating than it needs to be, such as the jump not always working in general (I even died twice from seemingly just jumping), or the camera movement being very slack and leaving you in many situations asking for blind leaps of faith. Also the music loop is wicked short which gets tiresome pretty quick. I'm of the opinion a loop should last at least 40 seconds before repeating. I have nothing to back that up. I like the idea of exploring Hanks movies through the mechanics of a platformer, and there are nice touches that try to adopt these IPs into game stuff, but in general it's lacking variety. The different sprites and tilesets are great, but also the enemies are only sprite swaps, as are the hazards. The difficulty in the judging build was wicked high with only 3 lives, and 1.2 made a bunch of small improvements that I very much appreciate. A little more time to explore could have brought a big impact, but as it is, it's a nice if simple platformer. Nice job.
