I enjoyed your story, but I loved your color palette.
I think you could have played a little more with the music and the moko jumbies, for example, making the drums a little louder each time the showed themselves, and then hiding again.
By the way, that's really fresh chicken that guy is serving hehehe
Both episodes remind a little Arzak Rhapsody and Gandahar. Not as surreal as the first, yet, but there's a lot going on that goes unexplained, not that it does. I'm not sure where does he come from or where he's going, but I still want to know where his journey takes him.
Is the hero related to the Sung Wu Kong, a cyborg and Chuck Norris by any chance?
Hoping to see the next one.
Good Idea, your T-rex joke.
Bad Idea, having the same joke repeated 3 times instead of having 3 different knowing you can deliver good puns. If you wanted to tell only this joke, it would rise the views having it only once. Perhaps, I'm wrong, the rest of the reviews will tell.
Visually speaking: Nice one!
Keep it up.
Thank you for the feedback! You're absolutely right, so I cut out the repeating segments. Thank you for checking it out, I really appreciate it! :)
I think you should reconsider another keys to control the character, with the current ones is not comfortable trying to move, jump and shoot at the same time because changing the hands position is needed.
Perhaps having the wasd instead of the arrow keys would help, unless you're actually trying to make this shooter "impossible" in which case I recommend you to look for the game or videos about "The Unfair Platformer".
thanks i'm rebuilding this game in new version.
There are a lot of small details still to work on like the fonts, the item graphics, perhaps a background design not so dull, etc.
But a really important detail missing is a reward system. The recipe for games is to challenge the player and give her / him a reward for succeed. And then, give new challenges, not so easy to get dull, but neither to hard to frustrate the player.
The game already has a score system, but there's nothing you can do with them; when you die it just repeats erasing completely your last score. You could at least have a "Highest Score" value, perhaps even a badge / highest score online system later. A store where you can buy upgrades is also a known formula. It's very discouraging having the main character like that, with no music, black screen or something. Something that told you "Superb, you just took 2000 wicked bugs along with you to the grave" or "Come on! How could you not shoot a single one?" etc etc
In any case, I read this is your first game, and overall it works fine, I did find no bugs so far, and is fun, but it could be much more fun to play with some tweaks. For example,
Btw The yellow foes remind me of the protoss dragoons. Which I think is cool.
Keep it up rBewowulf.
Some optional music may help, but so far the game mechanics are nice. The same concept would be great for a mobile device.
I agree on the music, but couldn't come up with a decent soundtrack. :(
I'll see if I can pump something out tonight. Thanks for the tips!
Edit: Music added! You were right, it added a lot. :)
This is the best remix of the Moonlight Sonata I've heard. I love how you treated the arpegios going up and down.
This piece has some good rhythm / mood changes and that's why I chose for my last demo reel over others.
Very nice, calmed and smooth. Pretty easy to modify / edit to use as background music.
I added your music in a video presentation about what to do after some critical success, it's the final work for some course of my sister and I helped her a bit gathering the pieces.
Your music helped a lot making it more bearable adding mood and timing.
It's on youtube and the vid Id is " WdEeaLmwMII ".
For the time being, you're being credited on the video description because of time limits restrictions. The plan is adding the credit inside the video after it is evaluated (I wanted to upload it to vimeo so I could just reupload it, but it doesn't seem to work uploading stuff right now).
I'll check another of your songs. Keep up the good work.
Thank you for your encouragement!
Very entertaining to hear.
