Wow, amazing game, and great take on the 'only one' theme! A few of those levels had me stumped for a while.
Wow loved this one! It's really satisfying getting a big group lined up!
Small bug I ran into - If the player dies, when you reset it kills all the zombies. But if it's a fire zombie, it still leaves the flames behind!
Apart from that though, it worked perfect. Great entry!
Really loved this entry, everything in the game had some great polish on it!
My main difficulty in this was using the combat, because I never knew how much health I was on or when I took damage. The health in the top corner was good, but since the camera follows the player the action was always at the centre, so that's where I was looking. Some feedback for being hit definitely would have improved this game.
Regardless, I really loved this. This is definitely something to be proud of after just 2 days!
You're absolutely right, I should have put more some simple tutorial levels to teach players the mechanics. Also good point, showing the fire's radius or something would have been a great idea!
Thanks for all the kind words and advice!
Thanks for the kind words! Yeah I let some friends play it and there was a strange bug where they skipped ahead, still haven't figured that one out yet :(
As for the second part, actually yes! It's involved in one of the solutions for the rooms (Some have multiple paths you can take). I should have put something in the game that explained that better, sorry about that!
Thanks for the advice!
Really interesting concept, I had fun weaving the chroma lance through the maze! It feels great to get a big bunch of enemies all in one go!
Sometimes it was a bit hard to play though. First of all, if I hit a wall and get stuck off course, I can't get away from any enemies (Which is really frustrating).
And secondly, there are way too many enemies at once. When you get to a certain point in the game, leaving one portal open is guaranteed death. While it should definitely ramp up, it feels like too much.
EDIT : Also it looks like there's a bug when you shoot something that's too close. It seems like the chroma lance disappears when it enters a collision with the player, but if the target is too close then it never stops colliding with the player, so it never returns properly.
Still a really cool game, that had a really nice feel to it. Awesome job!
I really like the idea behind the game, and the vibe it gives off is really cool.
Another thing to add to the bugs list is that the player's score doesn't reset on a loss
All in all though, really nice job!
Love the aesthetic you went for with this one! I have a few suggestions/considerations I wanted to share though;
- When jumping, the player has no control over their movement. I find it feels a lot nicer to have just a bit of control over my characters movement in the air.
- After firing, the hookshot moves with the players view. It feels weird seeing it move around in the air like that.
- When I stop using the hookshot, the player's velocity is set to 0. A think I really like about hookshots in other games is that I can cancel it early, then use the momentum to carry myself to other places. Instead of cancelling out velocity, maybe you could limit it?
- On the same topic, it also cancels movement along the x and z axis. It would be cool if it only pulled you in the direction of the hookshot, so you could swing from it like spiderman.
- The hookshot takes a long time to get to it's location. One thing that bothers me is waiting for it. I think it would feel a lot more responsive and look less 'floaty' if it moved with more speed.
- I'm not sure if the colliders are a bit off, or if some things are meant to be unhookable. I like the audio feedback you get to know if somethings been hit, but if there was a visual way of knowing if something was hookable (Like in portal, where portals can only be placed on the white surfaces) that would make the game a lot more playable.
Still, I'm a big fan of hookshots, and if the grappling feature was a bit more fleshed out then I think swinging around the world you made would be really awesome, great job!
Really love this concept, and the game feel is really nice.
There's a bug where the if you shoot and don't pick up your bullet then die, when the game restarts you don't get your bullet back, so to replay the game I had to refresh the page every time I wanted to try again (Which might be a good thing, otherwise I might have played this for *ages*).
Not having control over my player is frustrating, but I think the concept is really cool. I noticed that platforms still moved at normal rates; Did you try making it so they lagged? I think it would be really fun trying to look at the state of some moving platforms, and thinking ahead.
Overall though, well designed levels and an interesting concept. Nice job!
I really love how much you went for the 'only one' here.
Since you have the player following the mouse, I think it would have benefited from using the mouse's position to calculate direction rather than having a check for a few preset ones. Other than that though. very cool.
Wow nice game guys, I love the look and feel!
One problem I did have though is that on some levels, since the blocks go different ways, they collide with each other. Sometimes they got completely stuck, or thrown off the grid's axis entirely (Good thing you had the reset button though!).
Overall though, awesome job!
