Nice job Harry!

Suffice to say, I actually managed to complete it this time. No bugs at all. I hope we get to see more releases from you. I still want to know where the escaped gorilla ended up... maybe he's on a skateboard somewhere too?

The lovely old slow doggo and his rapid pupper chum that can do a 720 in mid-air have an adventure around the city looking for toys and treats

A cute 3rd person doggo collect-a-thon that just goes to show what can happen when the young and old work together with a sweet real time switching mechanic.

A nice adventure from Cookie Box Games, some serious thought and effort was put into this, and the audiovisual juxtaposition between the old and slow and young and fast was a really creative idea.    

Stuff I liked:

  • Mechanically solid, very quick to pick up
  • Great animation work on the dogs in a short space of time
  • Thematically on point
  • Very cute theme song - I absolutely loved how the same song changed between the dogs!
  • The low poly 3D choice was decently executed and ambitious for a short jam!
  • Felt like a dog frolicking simulator, lots of room for other things! I would like to have seen what you could do with some more time.

Improvements for next time:

  • "Fiddliness" / bugfixes 
    • I couldn't seem to get the traffic lights to activate to get the old dog to cross the road after the first time
    • Whilst messing around doing mid-air 720s with the puppy, I somehow managed to get my controls completely misaligned so that W (forward) was sending me right
  • An in game tutorial would've been a nice touch
  • A personal preference, but I would've liked it if both dogs were faster! The game was a little slow paced at time
  • The range of the sniff seemed like it could have been bigger, whilst there's a fun element to the exploration, I genuinely started to feel like a lost puppy at times
  • Some kind of extra reward or acknowledgement when I collected all of the Collect-kibbles would've been cool

Great job team, looking forward to  more!

There were 10 in the bed and the little one said move over, move over! Grandad just yeeted another grandma at me!  

A tight Hotline Miami esque bullet hell set in a nursing home with a funky time ghost teleport mechanic.

Absolutely great stuff from Slimey Hatch, can really see the work and care that went into this, really nicely polished for a short jam! 

Stuff I liked:

  • Mechanically tight, fun to play, quick to pick up
  • Great variety of enemies, rooms and layouts
  • Powerups were cool, wish there were more!
  • Thematically entertaining with a good sense of humour
  • Having a story and a quick intro cutscene was a nice touch!
  • Catchy theme song - going to be living in my head rent free for a couple days!
  • Art style was consistent and colour palette was nice and varied

Improvements for next time:

  • More sound effects
    • Hit sound for player and mobs
    • Weapon firing sound
  • Improved visibility of passable and impassable terrain elements
  • A difficulty curve instead of 'git gud' play style - just a personal preference mind you!
  • Some death screen tips!
    • I didn't realise my own ghost projectiles were hurting me until I'd died a few times
    • Using your time ghost's projectiles whilst dodging incoming projectiles is a big component
  • Instead of the boss room appearing at random, having some number of rooms or enemies you needed to kill before ending up there might lend itself a bit better
  • Purely preferetial again, but I think I would have preferred the map stayed the same each time - I think linearity would have lent itself well to this game

Great job team, looking forward to playing more!
