Barkour

Jump and bark your way to the ball · By Waynetron

Great game, but please remember Sticky Keys

Truly an outstanding game that I'm so glad to have experienced, but please for the love of every Windows user who doesn't have a working gamepad, if you have the time, give us an alternative to Shift for barking. If one already exists, make it more visible to players. Windows will take away focus from a game if you spam the shift key, and I could only partially disable that in the OS settings. That last section was gruesome, especially after an entire game trusting that the level design wouln't ask me to spam it. I already played the game, and got to the fantastic ending, but I hope future players get to enjoy it more fully.

OK, that's it for me being negative, because again, this is a remarkable game that I had a blast with. Keep it up!

Thanks for the feedback David. I use a Mac primarily, so the sticky keys issue slipped passed me.

I'll make the alternate key (space bar) more prominent to new players.

That's great! Thanks in advance. Again, you've made a wonderful, incredibly fun game.

If you are on windows, then when the sticky keys window pop up, just press disable shortcut. 

That's true! I tried, but it took me to a settings windows with a bunch of options, and even when I disabled the ones I thought were relevant, the OS kept being weird about it. I'm sure it's not as hard as it seemed when I was in the middle of trying to get that dog to backtrack the entire level.

Amazing Game.
