Paper Jam #003 ends at the end of June 2021, so if you have any ideas for next quarter's Paper Jam, let me know!
Here's some tips for generating themes:
- Pick a style (eg Madballs, goblins) or gimmick (eg transforming robots, jetpacks etc) or both.
- Aim for One page, A4, single sided, glue tabs with numbers
- Using portmanteaus (ie Adjective Noun.)
So, instead of just "Fungus", it's "Fungus Fighters".
eg Dinosaurs.....in space. Robot DInosaurs. Dinosaur skeletons. Stackable Dinosaurs. Misnamed Dinosaurs
An idle clicker game with no save function? WTH? (The game saved eventually.)
Also, once you have peak influence, it becomes an idle game only.
Am I missing something? Is the description just flavour text?
I know it's an April Fools but what's with all the unlockables but such a short game? Not only that but when I continued,
all my unlocks reset! =( the game bugged out and no zombies appear and the timer is stuck.
My only critique is when I return a key and it doesn't snap into place and it's now hidden behind the toolbar and inaccessible. Fortunately. it only happened to me once and after I moved across, I could grab it again.
I don't understand enough about the mechanics to make any success in this game but I really appreciate the amount of effort put into this game. Nice, clean artwork. Varied and detailed characters. I might have to look into some sort of strategy guide or something.
It seems like you have to know the right options or otherwise it's an eventual game over. Which is pretty poor in both cases. There should either be a way to recover or an immediate game over.
Quick update: the diamonds eventually showed up. Don't know what the trigger is though. Can't get a consistent hop movement working either.
Maxed upgrades, made it to the bottom. Wish there was an ending.
Needs instructions on
- how to "bring back your loot through the Elevators" (though I did figure it out)
- how movement works (eg you can hop up one brick)
- Where the heck you get the bug gems (diamonds?) for upgrades
- Apart from obstacles, is there any benefit to combat?
Needs better player training. I can get past level 2. The first hurdle is too far horizontally and the second is too short vertically...
EDIT: I took off fullscreen and the delay it eliminated allowed me to pass the first hurdle. However, that fall grab at the Deepest level is just cruel.
